Crafting Organization Week: Craft Desk + FAB Giveaway!

craft organizationHappy Monday, friends! And Welcome to the Crafting Organization Week here on Craftaholics Anonymous®! This week I am going to focus on sharing ideas, tips, tricks, and products that can help you tame your craft room, craft desk, craft nook, or craft closet! With spring cleaning in the air {or maybe the nesting bug just bit me! haha}, I thought now would be a good time to tackle this topic.

First, I’m going to talk about one of my favorite organization products from The Original Scrapbox, and then I’m going to share a round up of links for different articles on organizing different supplies, such as ribbon, fabric, etc. AND THEN, there will be a GIVEAWAY at the bottom!! So keep reading!

Craft Desk: EZ View Desk by The Original Scrapbox 

craft room

One of the first items I would recommend when putting together a crafting space, is a craft desk. A work space where you can spread out and CRAFT!! I love the EZ View desk in my craft room because it holds SO much stuff! It has bins and drawers to hold and organize loads of crafting supplies. Plus it has a fantastic working space on top. I think the size of the work space is good. Its not too big {I can reach all of it while sitting down} and its not too little {I can spread my supplies out while I work}.

The bottom of the EZ View desk is interchangeable so you can get the shelves and bins {like what I have}, a shelf, file drawer, or drawers. That way you can design a craft desk that fits your crafting needs. I also got the extra set of drawers for my desk. This makes my desk a little higher and gives more storage. The height makes it easy to stand and craft at and it doesn’t hurt my back. {I know sometimes I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to sit down, so rather than hurt my beck bending over while I craft, this higher working station is perfect!

I will also point out my crib spring turned inspiration board in the corner. I simply took an old crib spring, spray painted it turquoise and hung it on the wall with nails and wire. Now I use clothespins to hand pictures and tidbits of inspiration.  

But the best feature of this craft desk is…..

The See Through Top!

I can see all the supplies stored in the top drawers of my EZ View desk! I like to put my most used supplies in the top {yes, I use Washi tape all the time!! hehe}

washi tape

I love looking at my colorful collection of washi tape through the top of the desk. I love to organize my supplies by color usually. Because I usually go to my stash of ribbon, fabric, or washi tape, I’m looking for a color. That’s my preference. I know other crafters have a different system that works for them, so find what works best for you and stick with it! If you decide that organizing by size or another characteristic works better for you, that’s awesome! Go for it!

You can see a couple of my bins are almost overflowing….that’s one of my scrap fabric stashes :) Notice that I upholstered my stools so they’re softer on the tushy. A must for any craft marathon! haha Did you see my $3 chandelier that I got at the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore up there? A simple coat of sunny yellow paint and its the cherry on top for my craft room! Love a good, simple makeover like that! Look for small things like that for your craft space that you can add a little spray paint or a simple makeover to add some personality and jazz ! You will find that those small details matter and take a space from okay to AWESOME!

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! ♥

    I absolutely love 99% of your crafts and your craft room is so great. We hope to move soon and I am definitely getting a larger place to do my crafts. It won’t come close to yours but that would be hard to match. You’re great. Keep it coming.
