I've had craft rooms in the last couple of places I've lived, but this is my favorite one yet. It's spacious, the wall color is energizing, and there's plenty of room for storage. Plus I have room to keep my craft queue out in plain sight, which helps motivate me to work on projects.

Now for the CraftPorn...

My craft table. This was my dining room table when I lived alone. All the drawers make it perfect for storing stuff.

See all the storage?

I love how these drawers match the table. I keep buttons, beads, jewelry findings, and other little things in them.

All my craft tools (scissors, knives & assorted sharps, clamps, brushes) go in these drawers.

Craft tool cubbies. I just need to label them.

My paper station! I've got a drawer for cardstock, inspiration papers, tissues, raffia, and construction paper.

My yarn! Sometimes it falls down and makes me crazy, but I like being able to see everything.

My knitting station - drawers for needles, patterns, WIPs, and my crazy stash of plastic yarn.

The Craft Queue. Very motivating. (The awesome abstract circles thing is something that my 7 year old brother made. He's amazing.)

So that's my room. Ever since I set it up, I've been feeling more creative and more productive. I love having my own Fortress of Craftitude to go to when I have energy to burn!

I bow to your crafty organization!  I wish you could come over here and help me get it together!

Progress not perfection.

this is so nice! I love the desk being in the center of the room, and the matching wood drawer/shelf thingies. I have those same white Ikea vases--love them too. what a gorgeous inspiring room! sometime I'll get around to posting mine...it's not nearly as organized and tidy though  Cheesy

Oh to have a craft space!

I really like the clean lines of that furniture.

Oh and the art by your brother. 7? He's a gem.  Wink

Lovely! I've got the exact same table in my craft space. It's great  Smiley
