I realized that I have yet to share pictures of my craft room with my blog readers, so here it is! Lots of pictures, and hopefully you can see some organizational ideas that I implemented and do it yourself! It can be done! I did need MAN help to hang the shelves and list the counter tops into place, and for the drywall and cabinet lifting, electrical wiring, and crown molding. Everything else (drywalling, floor installation, cabinet installation, etc) was done by yours truly. You Tube was a BIG HELP! There is a video for everything!
Cabinets are from Home Depot, counter top is PRAGEL by IKEA. It does not stain and is so easy to clean, and you can cut it! Which I had do to. The curtain rod is also IKEA. The ribbon organizer is Clip-it-Up.
I got the cupboard handles at Home Depot too, a nice black simple design.
I fell in love with this wall paper, also from Home Depot. I got away with 1 roll at $40.00. It is a type of damask wallpaper that goes on SO easy, and apparently, you just pull the top and it comes off. My Dad helped with the crown molding. I found those bulletin boards and the white board at WalMart for $25 a piece. I had a vision and I think it worked out.
There is my RIBBA shelf from IKEA, there are 2 of them actually and they are meant to hold frames, but for me, Shimmerz, Paints, Stickles, etc! You can also see my JUMBO Clip-it-Up in the corner. Man that thing holds a LOT OF STUFF!
You can see my shelves on the right, just a tall shelving unit that holds my paper, binders, die cut machines, etc.
I built that little table using the left over counter top and some old legs I was just going to junk. It's for my daughter to craft with me.
And here is my collection of Shimmerz! Love this stuff! I also love that trim that covers the gap between the wall and the counter. It was on SALE for $7 a strip, and I only needed 3. It is not meant for this purpose, but it looks pretty SWEET I think.
DISPLAYING my products is what I wanted to do, so I bought these OPEN shelves from IKEA, not too deep, to be able to put things in front of me, so that I might see them and use them. I keep switching it up too!
I ADORE this shelf. $100 at a small town shop in Collingwood. They were no longer selling stamps, and had a sticker on it that said $100 and it will be donated to a charity (I think it was for cancer research). How could I resist. A win win I think!
I bought this magnetic board and stuck a vinyl hand on it for fun. :)
And if you want to hear me talk about the room, here is a video:
