Way back in July we gave our cramped and messy office a functional craft room makeover...remember when I showed off these pictures of the painting, the new flooring and the organization? I kept putting off showing the finished room since it was only about 90% completed, and everyone knows that I'm such a perfectionist that I didn't want to show off something that was still a work in progress. Well, since life tends to get in the way of finishing all of those little last minute projects, I'm sitting here four months later with a room that's still only 90% finished. Lately I've had a few people tell me that they were anxious to see how the room came out, so I figured it was only fair to show it off anyway.
This little dresser fits perfectly between my drawer set and the closet - it's home to my larger pieces of fabric and vintage sheet collection. My candlestick ribbon organizer sits on top, and I think I may need to make another one soon since my ribbon collection has grown!
I wrote a post all about my love of fabric organization awhile ago, and this system is still working out really well for me. I tend to use this method for any fabric pieces that are 1/2 yard or larger, and any smaller scraps are folded and stored in one of the large cabinet drawers.
decorative coral-edged corkboard, and above it is a built-in shelf that holds pre-cut wood for Read the Signs, my hand painted sign shop.
their huge art armoire that resides in our dining room, of course! As a family we have amassed an incredible collection of arts and craft supplies, no doubt. I'm only a hoarder when it turns into a giant unorganized mess, right?
