My roommate moved out last month, so I moved into the big bedroom. Took it as a chance to take stock of what I actually wanted in my bedroom. I like having my crafts around me, so I came up with this organizational system:



My desk is a standing desk made of 2 black filing cabinets, 2 3-drawer scrapbook paper holders from Target, and a large piece of wood painted white. Underneath the desk are 2 2-shelf cubes also from Target that hold all my yarn in and on top (the ones facing out are stuffed into those photo boxes). Between those is my sewing machine, which I should really not have on the floor, but eh. The bookshelves hold all my craft books, jewelry supplies, embroidery floss, fabric, blank books for design ideas, and more photo boxes - some of which are actually holding photos! The pegboard (my new favorite thing!) I thought was going to have to be painted. Which would have been a total pain, because it's been consistently 95-98 here. But Home Depot had some in white! So I got 2 2x4 sheets and just hung them up last night. My favorite thing on the pegboard is my Whitman's Mucha tin that is holding my mini glue gun. It's amazing how getting everything organized actually makes me want to craft more. Now maybe I'll use that iron you see up there. (hahaha.)

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! It makes me happy to look at it too. And, yes, symmetry is something I strive for in decorating. I've found color is very helpful in that regard.

Thank you! The pegboard was key in getting organized here. I can't stand it when I can't see everything. I'm an "out of sight, out of mind" sort, so having everything visible (or well labeled) helps bunches. And it sounds like you're the same way - here's hoping you get the space soon.

Yeah, we recently put up a pegboard wall along the long side of our bedroom.  However it solely supports my boyfriend's nerf gun collection!

Lovely - I have been looking at pegboards and accessories too for when I get to have our current master bedroom as my craft room when we move into our addition.  The space on the sides of the window is perfect for hanging my rulers and scissors, etc.

Do it! It's been up for a month now and I still can't get over how much of a handy organizational tool it is. I'm never not having one now. Thanks for looking everyone! And I squee'd out loud in joy when I saw I made the 'Spiffy Spaces' page. Brightened up a mostly sour day for me.

This just set the organised OCD side of my brain in to a series of cartwheels and somersaults!!!! I LOVE THIS! It's absolutely fab, and such a great way to keep your craft things organised and contained within a small space. That's probably my biggest problem: they migrate and take over everything.

Awesome work Smiley

This organized craft area is so inspirational!  The pegboard is probably my favorite with the large work space coming in as a close second.  As of right now, I have a lot of beading tools in bins, but hopefully will be able to get that a little more organized now that I have a small stand to use as a beading desk.  It was slightly irritating having to move my computer all of the time when I wanted to make pretties!  Hooray for your space!

Hey Jenn...I still have that pegboard I had up in the other bedroom that was between the closets. You want it? It would go well over your new beading desk, and you could hang all your tools up. And you could put shelving up on it like I did up top to hold your bead boxes. Think about it. 'Cause it's doing nothing right now but sitting in my closet taking up space.

Jenn - I'm thinking of an update pic, since I've gotten the new sewing area done. (And this post has been viewed over 2,000 times! Hi everybody! Hope I've been able to inspire some of you to get organized!)

This is a push to get you to upload pics of your new sewing area, and to show what you did with my old pegboard. ::push, push::

Wow! Your craft space looks really good. It is neat and attractive and you will actually fell like doing creative things in a well organized place like this. It gives room for your thoughts to work better towards creating something lovely. Really glad to look at this very well organized space. Keep it up!
