I hear over and over that people who have sewing/crafting rooms want to get them organized so they can get in there an have a nice neat place to work (at least to start with until the magic starts to happen). I’m a firm believer that IKEA is the PERFECT source for storage solutions for a creative space and since this month is National Craft Month (I didn’t even KNOW that!) they’ve actually featured a craft room MAKEOVER on their blog!
I just saw their post about some quick tips to get started and I think they have merit (even if it is a knitter’s room and not a fabric hoarder – I mean quilter’s- room). Be sure to check out the video at the bottom of the post for the tour of the room and the reaction of the room owner when she see’s the reveal.
Also, if you are looking for some other tips, I have collected A TON of ideas on my Pinterest board just for Craft Room Organizing! Look me up on Pinterest, my screen name is craftygirlanna. I also have a board called Studio Idea or something like that if you’re curious. That is what my dream studio would look like.
Lastly, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention a HASH TAG to search on IG to inspire you to get organized. Check out #honestcraftroomcleanup to see some of the transformations (I have some pictures on there from some time in 2014) of different folks’ craft rooms. What I love is seeing the before and after pictures. Seriously, if I could make a career out of helping people organize their craft rooms, I would totally do it!
So hopefully this gets you inspired to spend some of your snowed in days cleaning up or maybe do some Spring cleaning (whatever the case may be for your part of the country).
Happy Stitches and Happy Organizing,
