Friday, 11 September 2009 craft room!

Hi all

Firstly, can I just say a huge thank you to all of you lovely crafters that have given me fantastic ideas for storing my ribbon. I am planning on sorting them out next week so will put up a pic of my finished creation.

Now, onto my dream....a craft room. When I lived in the UK I used to have to make cards sitting on the side of my bed, and everything was stored in cardboard boxes, so I forgot about 80% of what I had. Then when we moved, I said it would be lovely if I could have a craft room. Hey ho, we chose a house that has a maids room that was an ideal size for a craft room yay!!

Here are some pics (only finished sorting it out like half an hour ago LOL!).

Now I know its not covered in pretty things yet but give me time!! I am just so chuffed to have a desk, and to have my stuff sorted so that I can easily get it!! Everything in the room is from Ikea - those metal filing cabinets were fantastic - just under 20pounds each. Glass jars for the buttons were a pound each and the little jars with dew drops in where 4 for 80p!!

Next challenge is doing the ribbon...!!

Have a fab weekend!

Pin It Now!

It looks really nice so far and you have to love having a room to yourself instead of having everything in boxes and not having space!

Hi Leanne,
When my youngest left home I immediately seized his room and turned it into my craft room and it's heaven having your own space. (even if he does come home to sleep in it now and again LOL). Your room is taking shape and looking fab. Good bargains from IKEA - must plan a trip......
