The Great Craft Room Make-Over--a Work in Progress

My "Craft Room" is actually a large walk-in closet which we converted to a home office when we moved in here. Now that I am sewing, the area is slowly being taken over with all of my stuff. I started getting hives (not really-well maybe a little) when I came in here because it is such a disaster and I can't find anything! It is not conducive to my creativity ;)


So-- I am organizing and creating a space that I can work in, and that I love-- I am so excited, and can't wait to finish! I took these pictures last weekend- I have already started decluttering and am slowly collecting things to use for storage. As soon as my dear, sweet, loving husband installs the shelf-- I can put everything together! *hint, hint*


Here are the "Before" pictures. I honestly can't believe I am sharing these-- they are pretty embarrassing! But keep in mind that this is a SMALL space, which makes it perfectly acceptable to have a big giant mess ;)

Computer table-- my sewing stuff is slowly creeping over-- maybe nobody will notice

The Sewing area-- I like to watch Dora

The bookshelves-- I put fabric on the top 4

There is an ironing board under all of that stuff

Stay tuned for the after pictures!

I'm jealous you have a space for your stuff even if it is unorganized (though it look ok to me). I can't wait to see it when it's done.

It is a great space and will look awesome when it is done! I want a close up on that fabric! :)

I love the 'before' pic! Very realistic (the fabric creeping into other areas). :)
