Entrance to my craft room
I've had such a wonderful response from all of you regarding my craft room I wanted to edit this and give you a few more details.
The little cubby I call the princess lookout tower, yes I am in my 40's but who cares...lol
This is my tower of cubes...haha. I got these so cheap at Michaels. The secret with these is to go to Michaels during a Black Friday sale, don't worry about be the very first allthough you should be there the first hour..everyone else is running to the cricut carts/supplys.
I ended up getting these 80% off the regular price. Its been two years since that glorious day and I am still smiling over that sale. Last year I think they ended being about 70% but GO! GO! GO! :)
This cabinet is the most expensive pieces I got at IKEA, but it holds soooo much. Its also a bit heavy which makes it nice and sturdy for your heavier items. I don't see this particular one on the IKEA website, but that doesn't mean its not there. They do have a lot of new items that are similar. This was about $200.
The shelves I got at Home Depot on sale for about $10 each on sale. I buy nothing unless its a good sale. I went there to buy the wood to make my own, but found these instead.
These units are called the Alex unit found at Ikea. These are the best! $119, they are on wheels and I love, love, love these! They hold all of my small little craft helpers. Ink, ribbon, chalks, buttons, stamps, brads, everything small that I have a lot of I throw in here.
The little cases I put all my really small items such as eyelets, brads, buttons, and so on I put into little containers I bought from a jewelry supply store. Super cheap, between a $1 - around $7 per tray/insert/containers(which come in a pack). Again, having a sale... :)
The containers I put in here I have categorized into specific items. One has my heat gun, ribbon iron, bling heat tool. Another has all my sizzix embossing folders, another has all my clay/clay tools/cutters, and so forth. Got them at Joannes, around $5 each. Yes, you guessed it, they had a SALE... lol.
On the top shelf are my cards I keep in CTMH containers, my embossing machines except for my big shot which I keep on top as you can see in the next pic.
This side has a lot of my paper and items I am currently working on. My punches, I am very selective on these as I don't like spending so much. If I can't find it on the cricut I will buy a punch, or if its a shape I use a lot of. Also I love the border punches. A few cutters as well, which by the way if you see this blue cutter on Provo Crafts site, I think its about $20 (not positive), but you should get it. I strongly recommend this cutter. If you have little ones around, the blades are very safe and it cuts beautifully. You will normally see this come with the YourStory, however now they have it for individual sale as well.
And here is where all the craftin happens.
There are two desks here and three units all combined were less than $250.
I had a craft room prior to this that had a lot of old furniture from family or stuff from around that house that we were going to get rid of and I loved that one too. I really feel its not what furniture you have in a craft room, but how you have it organized. I am an organizing nut!!! My spices in my kitchen are even categorized. :)
The drawers under my desk here hold cutters I use for quick cuts, all my glitter (I use this all the time), all fabric paint, stamp cleaner, my cricut carts and bottom drawer is a revolving drawer of scraps. I also have hung underneath all my rulers and long tools I use often.
Thank you for looking at my craft space, I have loved all your comments and hope you have enjoyed stopping by.
Take care my crafting buddies!! :)
