Let’s take a look back at my Craft Room Goals. I need to clarify that I made over my craft work space. There is no way I could possibly makeover my entire craft room in January with all there is to do to get the entire house back in order following the holidays. However, my main work area is the part of my craft room in need of the most attention.
Function. Now that the space is all cleaned up and better organized, it is so much more functional. I was so glad to finally be able to put my cutting mat on the table! The table is work ready and I have a project in mind!
Organization. I shopped my house and shared what I found in Week Two. Adding the Mesh Wall Pocket holder, shelf and my new DIY Framed Pegboard has created much better organization. I had a habit of cluttering up my desk with my notebooks but now they will all be handy and out of the way in my new wall pocket organizer. The clipboard needs to be handy. I use it to keep up with projects like our 12 Days of Christmas Ideas and of course this craft space makeover! Those publication dates and topics need to be easy for me to review so I can stay on time.
My favorite thing that I added is actually the Magnetic Strip. Having those needle nose pliers, snips and especially my hole punch handy will be a joy. I can never find my hole punch but now it is front and center!
A pretty place to work. My little touches of pink and brown add the pop of color I need. I plan to add a little more pink here and there but as you can see, I’m perfectly happy with browns and black. A lot of different patterns and colors make me feel like my space is cluttered which makes me feel overwhelmed.
See my tutorial for making a Two Tier Spinning Tray. You’ll never believe what I found at the thrift store to use for the bottom tray! It holds five upcycled mayo jars comfortably which are great for storing supplies.
The two matching vintage look Burpee metal cans on the shelf contain supplies. One is full of craft sticks which my grandchildren enjoy using when they are here crafting. The other is full of glue sticks. My daughter gifted those pretty tins to me a few years ago and I’m happy to be able to have them on display.
Also on the shelf is my Two Tier Pin Cushion which was an Upcycle project. I love it and find it to be exceptionally handy when I am sewing.
Use that bare wall for organization and aesthetics. I am satisfied that I have accomplished this goal by adding the shelf and peg board. However, I have some plans to add something more about those things in the future.
Now that my craft space makeover is complete it is time to get to work! One project has been completed already in my new space, these Valentine’s Tissue Paper Cone Tree Decor! There is already another project ready to begin so off to work I go.
