I am about to embark on a journey to really getting my craft room how I want it. Honestly, this is so much fun and I keep sneaking away from other BORING home maintenance projects (like building a deck) to dream about my new office. It’s bad. If I wasn’t addicted to Pinterest before, I am now, judging from a number of craft rooms I have been looking at. These craft room ideas will certainly inspire!
Long ago, I asserted that hubby and I would always share an office. To tell the truth, he hasn’t always been the fondest of this idea. I can’t blame him as my philosophy is not to put away a project until it is finished (i.e. messy girl). I can remember a time when we were newlyweds and he moved his desk into another room. I slid into one of my bratty, petty, and sort-of-hilarious episodes and would text him (he was literally next door) to “come here please” over and over and over. Yeah, it was petty, but he moved back. Now I have to clean up my act if I want to keep it that way.
List of MUSTS for my ultimate craft room:
- 1. LOTS of wall storage
- 2. I desperately want one of those cute pegboards
- 3. Must have an area for my son to draw and display his artwork
- 4. Must be able to keep my mess at bay and away from Husband’s desk
- 5. Must be light and bright (I do some photography in there)
- 6. Must have a computer station
- 7. Must be moveable for now (the floors will be redone later in the year or next year)
- 8. Must be cheap (budget for entire room is under $1000)
- 9. Must be inspiring!
To tell you about my craft room, it’s a 16x9ft room. I will show you some horrifying pictures later, but today is about the inspirational craft room ideas I have cooking up. I will be taking one of the long walls and putting in some cabinets and reusing the counter tops from our old kitchen that I saved. *This post may contain affiliate links.
First thing, I want one of those cute pegboards! This craft room storage idea is an absolute necessity.
But I know that isn’t nearly enough storage for my hoard of craft supplies. So, I asked hubby to build me a version of this storage unit.
For my son’s artwork, I have the perfect way for him to display it in all its glory!
Ok, now that we have the storage covered, I still need some inspiration for storing cute supplies that will be in the viewable area.
