My Craft Room

I love seeing other people's amazing craft rooms and I've always dreamed of having my own. Thanks to my awesome hubby, I have my craft room now! It's not completely done yet, I still have a bunch of things to hang up, but most of the things are set in place. I can't wait to start using this space for some creative work! All of my furniture came from Ikea, except for my chair, I got that at Costco.

 My very large desk.

This bookshelf fell on me while I was helping my hubby put it up. It was painful, but it looks so nice now that it's up!

I have some bookshelves behind my desk. That's where I store all of my stamps, paper, Cuttlebug, Cricut, and etc.

I have a plastic storage system beside my bookshelf. The top drawer is full of my snacks and munchies and the bottom two are for my blank cards and envelopes.

I have some shelves to the left of my desk.

This is where I take all of my pictures. It looks professional and all, but I have no clue what I'm doing half the time. I can just imagine how disappointed my photography professors are. Hahaha =P

A closer look at my desk. I have to protect all the surfaces because I'm really clumsy and always spilling things, especially strong chemicals (nail polish remover, Goof Off) that will damage my desk. 

This is the other side of my desk. In the corner is my iPad so I can watch videos online while I work. My hubby will set up an actual TV later. (He tried to put a 40" there, *facepalm* but it was obviously too big for my room. I didn't want to go blind so I got him to take it away.) Underneath is my embossing heat gun, it's there because the outlet is there. You've probably noticed my tissue, toilet paper, and paper towel... yes I use a lot of those while I'm crafting. =P On the far right is my ribbon rack/holder, which I really hate. The quality is awful and it's not practical at all. In front of the ribbon rack/holder is where I put my paper cutter.

Thanks again to my wonderful hubby who bought me everything and then put all the furniture together. I love my room SO MUCH!! 

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Hi, I love your craft room. I am hoping to start organising mine soon as it is a bit of a mish-mash of tables and cabinets. It would be very nice to have everything looking nice and pulled together like yours... Thanks for your inspiration and ideas here...

  2. Thank you very much!! When I designed my room I went to the Ikea website and used their Office Planner ( It might help you out with where to begin. Good luck with your room! ^_^

  3. Thanks. I've been trying to do something similar with graph paper and laying out different pieces. I've been looking at some martha stewart pieces and have ordered some to make a start. It's a bit like Ikea as I have to put everything together.... that's going to take some work!!
