I printed these embroidery floss bobbins from http://craftchi.com/blog/?p=610 and taped them to some manila folder pieces. This works great for me because I don't have a very large floss collection.

And then I put them in an old sewing box that I was no longer using to store them

This is the ribbon storage box that I made! I had a nice sturdy box that some Christmas cards came in. I decoupaged the top and used a knitting needle to hang the ribbon on. More info here --> http://scrapbooking.about.com/od/gettingorganized/ss/ribbonbox.htm

My sewing cabinet that I found for free on Craigslist. I love it because it all folds up.

Pegboard storage inside of my sewing cabinet that I use for scissors and rulers.

My fabric stash semi-organized. I really want a new shelving unit and some board organizers.

My favorite item in my craft room; my antique chest of drawers. I want to paint i though.

My ceiling is slanted and I didn't want to paint. So I hung up some fabric instead!

So that's pretty much it for now. I think I spent under $10 because I used things I had laying around. I want to do lots more to it! What do you think?

really nice. i wish my working/crafting/sewing space was already done. right now its an empty room with nothing but a cordless electric drill and 3 cans of paint inside :-)
the chest of drawers is beautiful and the way you organized your floss is lovely.

how does your sewing desk thing look unfolded?

I did mine with stuff on hand too, and it doesn't look near as organized as yours. I am so tempted to move up to the attic, but I like being downstairs where I can keep an eye out on anyone approaching my house (not so great neighborhood anymore). Now my DR is craft space, my living room houses my ironing board and extra 'stuff' is in bedroom #2, so I really need to make upstairs a suite. LOL

Since it has slanted ceilings too, I may use your idea. I would never have thought of that. In fact a lot of great ideas in your space, and that cabinet is beautiful, and even though I paint everything, I'm not sure I would want to paint it.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

It looks great! I particularly love the ribbon, though that may just be because of the adorable prints. XD

I'm so stealing that card idea for embroidery threads! I might even USE mine if they're not all jumbled up in a drawer...

I love the cabinet with the fold up table! I can't believe someone just gave that away.
