My Craft Room

I am so excited to give you a tour of my new Craft Room! We moved into a new house this summer and I claimed the extra bedroom for my craft room. At first this bedroom was the “catch all” room and complete train wreck {as you can see in this before picture.}  After months of planning and many hours later, I created my dream craft room. {see my inspiration board here}

Welcome to My Dream Craft Room

craft room

I LOVE it! Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the yellow chandelier. killer. {$3 find at the thrift store + yellow spray paint} and my crib spring turned inspiration board. perfect. Gray stenciled wall. to die for. And the most drool worthy craft room storage boxes from The Original Scrapbox. amazing. This my friends, is a dream come true for me!

fabric organization

In case you didn’t know, I’m a fabric hoarder. There is 60+ yards of fabric on the rod alone. {yes, i have my fave fabric shops on speed dial. haha} Davis made the bottom shelf unit from an old book shelf we found on the side of the road. we turned it on its side, added cubbies, and painted it white. {more details on this transformation to come.}

ideas for a craft room

I heart these colors.

scrapbox sewing box

This is the Sewing Box from the Original Scrapbox. This little box of magic unfolds into an amazing sewing station. It fits both my sewing machines and some storage.

Some of you may recognize that blue chair from this post.

craft desk

I have the EZ View Desk in the center of the room with 2 upholstered bar stools {more on those later}. I also got the extra set of drawers to make the desk higher {who doesn’t love a few extra drawers!} it makes the desk the perfect height to stand at and work. Oh and the see through top is very handy!

craft room organization

I think this is my fave work station. The Work Box is such an awesome piece! Its rather large, but it holds SO much! I love how it has so many different sized cubbies + a small table. This is the perfect place for my Cameo because there is a small hole in the back so I can plug it in. So now all I have to do is hook up my laptop and cut away! And icing on the cake, this box is on wheels and is really easy to move. {I moved that large hunk of awesomeness all around the room….by myself…..to determine the exact right spot for it. no lie.}

craft room storage

And lastly, the Craft Box. This is a great storage box. It is smaller than the Work Box, but it also has a pull up table top and holes in the back so that you can plug in your crafting tools. {glue gun, cutting tool, computer, etc} This box is not on wheels and so its harder to move around than the much larger Work Box. And I wish this one had a few more bin sizes. This is an excellent storage box, I just think I prefer the larger Work Box because its easier to use and has more options for storage.

crib spring craft idea

I gave my old crib spring a fresh coat of paint. Now i am using it as my inspiration board to hang pictures and items that inspire me. This corner of the room is my fabric cutting station. I love all the great natural lighting in this corner. Its great for taking pictures for all my tutorials. The white desk is my original craft desk that I started out with. I got when we moved to Viriginia 5 years ago. The turquoise dish is an vintage pyrex dish. {love the colors of vintage pyrex!} You’ll notice i have a few of them around the room.

I adore vintage dishes! {remember my milk glass plate wall?}

ideas to store ribbon

I was stumped on how to organize my ribbon. Half of it was on spools and half of it was not. Thanks to the lovely ladies on Craftaholics Anonymous Facebook page, I found the perfect way to store my ribbon. {check this comment thread for some great ideas and links!}

craft room organization

I just love being organized. It is so refreshing! After the chaos of moving this summer, its rejuvenating to finally feel organized and know where all my crafting supplies are.

craft room decor

I tried to use my crafting supplies to decorate my craft room instead of hiding them all away. I feel that the colors and textures of my crafting supplies are an asset to the room and help inspire my creativity. 

I am planning to do a video tour of my craft room over Thanksgiving so you ladies can get a real visual tour of the layout. Just looking at pictures can be difficult to get a real feel for a room, so I’m going to try my hand at making a guided tour video. we’ll see how it goes! lol

CRAFT ROOM SHOUT OUTS: First, I want to thank Davis {the hubster} for all of his help and support in making my dream craft room a reality. He spent hours along side me working in my craft room. And for the record, he stenciled that gorgeous wall. all by himself. I love that man!

Second, huge thank you to The Original Scrapbox for providing me with the most amazing storage boxes known to crafters! Their products are high quality and designed with the crafter in mind. huge fan here. keep reading for a chance to win one of their products!

Third, thank you to my good friend, Cara for taking most of the pictures in this post. The dismal cloudy day + my old camera would not have done this room justice.

Watch a video tour of my craft room.

disclosure: i received free products from The Original Scrapbox to review. i was in no way obligated to give a good review. all opinions are 100%. please see my disclosure page for a complete statement.

    What a beautiful room! It truly looks like something out a design/organizing magazine. I would show you my peg boards, bins and cubbies but I’m afraid it would make you shudder. Are you naturally neat and crafty or did you have teach yourself (either or both). Have a wonderful day.

      Hi Tawn,
      Thank you! Don’t worry, that was probably the only day it looked that nice! My craft room is a train wreck usually :) I’m so glad you stopped by!
      happy crafting,

    wondering- is there enough knee room when sitting under the sewing machine? Does the bottom of the cabinet get in the way of your feet, where do you set the foot pedal?

    1. 454.1

      Hi Heidi,
      The tray that the sewing machine sits in pulls out about 18″. My feet and legs fit under nicely. Thanks for stopping by!
      happy crafting,

    Just stumbled upon your blog, and I am SO glad I did! I am swooning over your craft room. We just moved into our house, so the craft room I have claimed is currently our “catch all.” I LOVE the stenciled wall… I might have to give that a go!!

      Thank you, Allie! I’m so glad you found my blog! Congrats on the new craft room! You’ll have a blast getting it all set up. Hope you’ll stop by again soon!
      happy crafting,

    I like the way you hang your fabric – that would be great for quilters who could hang projects in process. Now that said – let me tell your fabric collection would be a starter set compared to most veteran quilters I know – I’ve been quilting 20 yrs and I have a 10 by 12 room that houses my fabric stash. Oh and that’s after I sold off a quarter of it because my tastes have changed!

    Can you tell me more about the stenciled wall? Where did you get the stencil?

    1. 463.1

      Hi Deborah,
      I got the stencil online from Royal Designs Studio. It took quite a few hours to do, but I love the look of the stenciled wall!

        Thank you. Your craft room is very nice!

    Years ago I saw a photo of an inspiring “sewing room”. It was a small apartment and she had no room for her sewing machine, etc. so she improvised. In her dining room it looked like a standard china hutch, but the bottom was on rollers and could be pulled out and there was her sewing machine built in, The top of hutch was attached to wall and remained in place. The front “doors” of the base were left on but on the back side there were drawers added and a knee space. When she was done it was all rolled back into place and it was a dining room again.

    What stencil did you use? I just looked at the website and I can’t find it. And how long did it take? I would love to do it, but kind of afraid….

    How big is this room? you have so many pieces in it, its amazing. Our extra bedroom is only about 11 x 10 and one wall is mostly a closet. I know about rooms being a catch all we moved a year ago, and my “craft(crap)” is full of what no one knows what to do with. This would be tears to my eyes to have it all organized and behind cabinet doors when not in use.

    I have taken over two small abandoned bedrooms in my small house so there isn’t too much space plus I squeezed in a 10-foot longarm quilting table in the smallest. I would never be able to fit in any of the cabinet units you have, but have got quite a few ideas from your pics. Especially the curtain rod holding folds of fabric. Question on the hanging fabric. Obviously folded and looks like the curtain rod rings with the hanging clips. Do you have anything in the fabric top that keeps them hanging nicely and not drooping?
    Thank you

    Where did you find the clips that you used to hang the fabric and the ribbon? I have been searching for a way to store my fabrics and I am in love with how you did yours. I am in the process of creating my dream craft room so I have a lot of organizing ahead of me. I actually just started painting last night :)

    thanks for the ideas.
    *Chelsey :)

      The fabric clips are hung on curtain clips. I found mine at Ikea for cheap, but you can also find them at Target and Walmart. The ribbon hooks and wire system is a curtain system from Ikea. Hope this helps! Have fun creating your dream craft room! :)

    Hello. Love your organization. Gorgerous room! Hoping you can provide some input! I see you use a lot of clips to hang your fabics and pictures. My little dog Preston is getting quite the bandana collection. I want a nice way to store/or display them without them getting all wrinkled up etc. Id like to use rod clips or some sort of clip I can hang from a large metal ring or small rod. BUT I want to get clips that arent too strong that wont harm the delicate fabric and prefereably not crease it up a lot. Do you know of any rod clips that are ‘padded’ or gentle on fabrics that you could suggest? Thks for any insight! I also considered small laundry pins but cant seem to find any w/ small holes at top that I could also hang them from a small wire or twine.

  41. 483

    I wanted to say I love your design :}

    I am simply fascinated by the way you are hanging the pieces. Your entire are looks fantastic, but I am curious as to how you folded those fabrics before clipping them up. I am trying to re-create this in an “industrial chic” (as my best friend is calling it) way for my fat quarters.

    Your craft area is gorgeous, and that dream one is to die for. great job!

    1. 484.1

      Thank you, Stormy! All my fabrics are at least 1 yard. I then just folded them up with the selvage at the bottom. Hope that helps! Industrial chic sounds awesome!

    Wow, you ladies have so many wonderful ideas. Let me introduce myself! My name is Linda and we just moved into a wonderful new home in the country. I have beautiful knotty pine walls and ceilings. Unfortunately I do not have the storage space/closets/shelves that we had in our other home. My craft room/personal office is very open and spacious. I am having such a creative block organizing. I do many different crafts and now that I am retired from Nursing, I have plenty of time to do them. As I am sure many of you know that an organized work space is a creative one. Can anyone help me with removing this mental block and start enjoying my wonderful crafts? I can post pictures if someone is willing to help me.
    Thank you, Linda

      Hi Linda! Sorry to be so slow, I’m a bit behind right now. If you email me some pictures, I’d be happy to post them on my Facebook page and see what our 200k+ fans have for ideas for your new space! my email is craftaholicsanon (at) gmail (dot) come :)
