It is Week 4 of the Craft Room Makeover Challenge and we are sharing our Clean and Decorate tips.
Visit my Crafts page to see what I’ve been making.
From January 3rd through January 31st, 12 Plus crafty bloggers will be sorting, organizing, cleaning, and decorating their craft spaces. Each of us has a very different craft space to tackle, so chances are you will find one similar to yours. Follow along, share you suggestions and tell how you are organizing your craft space too!
Craft Room Makeover organizing is super fun because you get to be crafty creative like I did with my peg board. Do remember seeing that thrifted picture frame on my work table in Week Two? Here it is now being staged for storage use as a peg board frame. It isn’t quite finished yet but you will see all those final details next week for the big reveal.
Visit the first three weeks of the craft room makeover for our progress photos and tips to wrangle in your after the holidays craftermath!
The Clean Up
Part of the craft room makeover process includes giving the room a good cleaning. It sure needed that following the holidays too! I still use this Speed Cleaning Kit I shared a while back. Keeping the most often used supplies handy makes quick clean up so easy!
Craft Room Cleaning Supplies
- All purpose surface spray cleaner
- Window Cleaner
- Roll of paper towels
- Feather Duster
- Lint Roller
- Old worn wash cloths or cut up old t-shirts
All Purpose spray cleaner is good for my work table once a project is complete. It may be necessary to use the Lint Roller or Feather Duster to remove debris from the work table before I can spray and wipe.
Paper towels are a necessity in the craft room even when I’m not cleaning. They are often used for paint brush clean up or when I am decoupaging.
My Craft Room Makeover Goals
- A pretty place to work
- Use that bare wall for organization and aesthetics
