My New Craft Room

The crafting has been minimal in recent weeks.  Why?  Because my husband's gym moved to the garage, which opened up a section of the basement for a craft space for me.  Wahoo!!!!  The deal with setting it had to be free or next to nothing.  I had to search around the house to collect things to set up and organize.  Shelf unit left from previous owners. Brackets and boards removed from the shed/soon to be chicken coop to create a shelf.  The folding tables I got for free.  You get the idea.  It's not what I'd want if I was going to pay for something in particular.  If I wasn't in such a hurry to set it up, I'd like to paint it.  Regardless of appearance, it's a space dedicated for my crafting.  And I'm pretty darn excited about that.

Some misc. $.50 wooden bowls for storage.
A basket bought for a buck at a thrift shop.  Plus the pottery I made...which is terrible up close, but it's functional.  (As a side note, I stink at pottery.  I took a class two years ago and completely stressed out the kind instructor.  She says you have to relax and go slow to make pottery.  Well, those two verbs are not in my vocabulary). 
Here's some of the wooden boxes I pick up for storage.  All were $0.50-$2.00 and are great for many purposes.
My fantastic husband swiped (with permission) this desk chair from a man's trunk at the transfer station.  Nothing wrong with's clean, functional and works great!
These are soap/lotion holders.  I just saved food jars that would fit them and they work great for holding things you may need to grab quickly.
My challenge to you:  Is there a table, closet or space somewhere in your home that you can create your own craft station?  Doesn't have to be fancy, as long as it does the job.

  1. I've been waiting to see where the collection of wooden boxes would go. I knew it even before I scrolled down to see all of the photos. It looks fantastic. A craft room is like a little slice of chocolate cake, wait, who am I kidding, it's like the WHOLE cake. Have lots of fun with this. I love all of your fabric. Lots of good things are going to come out of this room :)

  2. I also use the wooden boxes for toys. The little guy puts things in and out of them all day long.

  3. I am so jealous! I can't wait to make a craft room in my house! It looks amazing :D
