Have I mentioned I have a craft room and office in our new house? No? It's huge. Like master bedroom size. The teen is none too happy that I put my name on the door and claimed it as mine before he had a chance. It has a beautiful big window overlooking our cul-de-sac and a thick beam running under the roof line. There are no built-in closets or shelves though. Well, unless you count the bench under the big window. It is also one of the last rooms in the house to be unpacked. I have been digging through boxes looking for supplies, spending a fortune at craft stores when I can't find what I need, and the room has somehow become covered in glitter and paint and stickers. Already.
Last weekend I had my husband assemble shelves for me. I have 5 large 5-shelf shelving units along the back wall. This will house the majority of my party planning and craft supplies in containers and boxes. I've been gathering a lot of inspiration for my craft room/office from Pinterest. You can view my 'decorating' board to see some of the gorgeous craft rooms I have pinned.
With my shelving now up I started picking up containers this week to store some of my craft supplies in.
I found some large First Street brand plastic kitchen storage containers at Smart & Final this week. They were only $3.59 each. They are the perfect size for my shelves and although I love the look of glass jars and containers, unfortunately with small children who think my craft room is also their play room these aren't very practical for me.
I plan on filling quite a few shelves with these. They are perfect for holding foam letters and shapes, pom poms, buttons, sequins, fabric scraps, feathers, stamps, and cookie cutters. There's a smaller size too that are $2.39 each so I plan on picking up a few of those too. They'll be great for holding items such as popsicle sticks, glue sticks, and tape.
Another of my crafty projects while I was in Australia was to get my cross stitch thread organized. I know, this is not…
