Craft Room 2014

2014 is going to be CREATIVELY AWESOME!!!
I gave my craft room walk in closet a make-over and boy does it make a HUGE difference.
My craft room is maxed out so I decided to visit my favorite IKEA store
 and in the kid's bedroom collection, I found these TALL cabinets with pull out wire basket shelves. They go right up to the ceiling ...see photo # 2.
 In PHOTO # 1, you can see lots of poor storage and useless wire rack shelves that can't hold weight, aside from the fact, it looked messy. I chose a two tone look since my
craft room furniture is wood grain and white.
In PHOTO #4, the pink suede bins are perfect to hide lots of scrap material, tissue paper etc.
In PHOTO #4, I filled some cubes up with plastic snap bins to hold my colored scraps of paper since I was tired of fumbling through files. Ikea also had these perfectly sized little wood shelves for embellishment jars since the ones in my craft room were on over load!
I certainly didn't want Home Depot to be upset, PHOTO #6 ,so we visited them and had them cut narrow wood shelves ( I painted them pink) and they are perfect for ALL MS punches.
Lastly, PHOTOS 6-9 were taken at the end of the year and I've made some minor changes in there as well that I'll post at a later date.....even my puppy has grown!! I have 3 large working desks and I LOVE being in my room!!
