Did you know today is National Clean Up Your Room Day? Time to do some spring cleaning! Whether your craft room could use a little sprucing up or a complete makeover, I have the perfect solution.
We’re excited to introduce Creating Keepsakes new publication, Creative Spaces (on sale today)! And I’m thrilled that my craft room was chosen to be featured in this brand new magazine.
This special issue is so inspiring – I’m always updating my space, so it’s fun to have an entire book filled with amazing rooms inspired by amazing women! Click HERE for a sneak peek of this issue!
I thought I’d give you a closer look at some of the storage in my space – I spend a good portion of my free time in this space and it’s important to me that it be welcoming and inspiring. In order to do that, I’ve created fun, useful storage that’s mostly upcycled! Here’s one side of my craft room:
For instance, the stamp shelves you see here were a display cabinet in one of my favorite stores. The store had sold out of the items it was using the cabinet for and I picked it up for the bargain price of $20. Can’t beat that! This little beauty might have ended up in a dumpster! Now it graces my space and allows me to easily access stamps that I tend to go to most often.
Another great find is this ribbon storage created from an old tool crate. I purchased it at an antique store for $15, painted it red and added the number accent. I keep this on my wrapping table so I can access ribbon right away!
I think my favorite item in my wrapping area is this old crock that we received from our sweet Grandma Lucy. It’s just got so much character! I keep my extra wrapping paper in it. It’s just a little bit of heaven!
And finally, keeping all those little paper pieces accessible and in eyesight is easy with this old, wooden tape measure. It’s not the most unique idea — I stole the idea from one of my Pottery Barn design books — but Pottery Barn never used it like this! I love that it’s a bit messy and that so many inspiring products are on display.
So here’s my challenge to you…Find things you love and make them work in your space. If it’s the wrong color, paint it! Look for items that you can alter or use in a different way. I love to shop thrift stores, consignment and antique stores for unique items to dress up my space.
