Craft Nook

Hello! I am Amy Kenyon… I am an Artist, specializing in cupcake paintings. Some people will ask me “Why cupcakes?” And I say “Why not! Cupcakes make you smile :)” I live in a small country town in New York state’s southern tier with my family. I have a wonderful husband and 3 beautiful boys. When I am not being a busy mom, I will post to my blog or to my Artist page on Facebook.

great ideas for turning a tiny nook into a great crafting space at Craftaholics Anonymous®

I have my little craft nook in a corner of our dining room. I originally had a whole room to myself and my creativity but my boys needed a room for their games and hanging out with their friends. So I down sized. But it seems to really function for me.

There is plenty room for me to work on any project and to the right of my work area there is a hidden closet to store all my supplies.

craft paint storage

I turned an old set of desk drawers into a shelving unit to hold all of my paints. I love that I can see all the colors in front of me. I have a bulletin board that I have some of my work hanging on and I also pin ideas and reminders on it.

Hope is always around. I love my little ceramic snowman that keeps me company.

I have a couple of my prim angels hanging up to bring me luck.

I made a mirror we had into a chalkboard to display inspiring quotes, not only for me but for my family to see.  Some pictures of my boys grace the right side of the message board.

My work space is rarely this clean. I keep my brushes and other tools organized in a handy Pampered Chef organizer. I keep my note pads in a little dish one of my boys made in school in easy reach to jot down ideas and notes. I always keep a monthly calender on my desk to check dates for deadlines and orders.

Love this craft nook!

I like how everything flows together. Not too much and not too little. Thanks for visiting my little Craft Nook! ~ Amy

Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When not crafting, I can be found chasing my 2 small {but very energetic!} boys or playing with my new baby girl. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    This is awesome. I’m doing the same thing almost with my dining room. I’m working on building floor-to-ceiling shelving across one wall … from salvaged dresser drawers!

    The paint storage idea is brilliant! I have a ton of those lovely acrylic paint bottles and just can’t seem to keep them organized. This would be perfect for my craft room. Such a great crafting space!

    how lovely – any chance we can get a little tutorial on that drawer shelving…I have an old set of drawers I was planning on getting rid of but this would be great if I could repurpose!

      Hi! I would love to help out! What I did for the drawer shelving is first I painted the front and sides of the drawers black…then I decided how high I wanted them and started with the first drawer at the top as shown. I screwed two screws on the inside on both sides of the drawer to the wall. Then held the next drawer up tight to the top one and did the same. The knobs left on the front of each drawer makes it look almost like one piece :) I hope this helped!
