I know I've been a bit MIA as of late, please forgive me y'all. We've been sick with the flu at my house, and it hasn't been fun. Not even a little bit! It started with Mr. Picky Eater over two weeks ago now and hit me last Tuesday. We've both had the flu shot, which we do every year, but it seems we've been bitten by the nasty strain going around that the shot doesn't cover this year. I will say that for me, unlike Mr. Picky Eater, I think the flu shot drastically lessened my symptoms because it hasn't felt much worse than a head cold along with a total lack of energy for me. But, I imagine the Tamiflu has had something to do with that. I swear I think it's close to a miracle drug! Anyway, enough of the sicky saga, let's talk about my craft room.
My craft room is a work in progress that doesn't see much activity these days, but once I get it organized I hope that will change. I have a wonderfully large bar height table that Mr. PE, aka my renovation specialist built for me. I painted the table a lovely taupe/cafe au lait color, and love that it's L-shaped so I have lots of room to for my Cricut and other most used items and can still spread out with a project. I've got a large bookcase packed full of books along with a few of my crafting supplies. My biggest need for organization is in my closet. Right now it's pretty jam packed with boxes and a couple large plastic bins where most of my supplies are crammed away. So, if I actually want to tackle a project I have to drag all the bins out and search for my needed supplies. I plan to change that with an inexpensive wire 3 shelf unit from Target. I found some lovely organization and decor ideas on Pinterest I'd like to incorporate and I thought I'd share those with y'all. What do ya say, want to take a look?
First off, I'm a bit of a mason jar fanatic, so I'm thinking this stacked mason jar idea would be perfect for my craft table. I could stick my most used markers, pens and scissors in them and add a little cuteness.
Another idea I found on Homemadesimple.com is perfect for the scrapbooking paper crafter in me.
I spotted this cute little hand-painted piece on Etsy and although all the words don't describe me, I think I could use it for inspiration to create something similar that does describe me.
At present my walls are a little on the bare side, and I was thinking I might make a couple of these cute clipboards, which double as chalkboards to hang above my craft table. They would be perfect for writing myself little notes as needed and could do double duty as inspiration boards. Besides, I've been looking for a way to use chalkboard paint for a while now!
Do you have any cool ideas you've used in your craft room or plan to use that you'd like to share? If so, email me or leave me a comment, I'd love to hear em!
