Craft Room Clean Up on Aisle 5

When we finished the basement five years ago, we planned for a craft room.  I have two daughters and they were always into something crafty.   Over the last 3 years, the room saw a lot of activity when we were scrapbooking like crazy for high school graduations.   We are such messy scrap-bookers!   In time, the room started becoming a “dump” for just about everything.  I had enough – I wanted my craft room back!
It took an entire weekend to clean it all up and get organized.   I asked hubby to put up a couple shelves above the crafting desk area for small items like jars and supplies.  These shelves were made of 2 x 8’s and cost less than $10.  I also found a small peg board in the clearance bin at Home Depot and snagged it for .79 cents - best find of the day! 

It’s so nice to have an organized crafting area!  I love my little room…..

Messy Before Photo’s (no shelves yet)!

We tried to be “forward thinkers” and made “built-ins” for the craft room
