Welcome to the 2018 Craft Room Makeover Challenge Week Two
Oh the work that has gone into cleaning off that work table!
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!
These two pano shots tell the whole ugly story of how messy my craft work space had become during the holiday season.
My work table is a 6 ft. Lifetime Folding Utility Table. I love it because it is a wipe clean surface, large enough for cutting out fabric, is very lightweight and is the perfect size for my space to meet my crafting needs.
Because it is a folding table, we can use it for other purposes like yard sales or if we need another table for a big dinner or party.
After I had cleaned the table I decided to use that space to consider items which can be used for organization. I shopped my home for everything except the hanging three basket organizer which was a happy find at Tuesday Morning. I plan to use it for notebooks and such so they will no longer be piled on my desk.
The thing you see under my work table is a foot rest which has been gnawed on by a puppy. A foot rest is essential to relieving back pain when you sit for long periods of time. Mine was a gift from a client many years ago. It is collapsible for easy storage which is nice. My husband has one under his desk like the one below from Amazon.
Take a closer look at a couple of the things I hope to use for organizing my craft supplies.
The vintage frame was a thrift find and I can’t wait to give it a makeover and get it up on the wall!
The magnetic knife holder is intended for kitchen use but I could never bring myself to have sharp knives hanging on the wall. It will be quite useful in the craft room, don’t you think! I am looking forward to sharing with you next week exactly how these items will be used to create more organization for my craft work space.
