Craft room organization

My craft room had gotten so bad that I had no desire to even walk in that room, much less be creative enough to craft something.


This past weekend I decided enough was enough.  In an effort to continue to organize the house, the craft room was a priority.


Here are a pictures before I started.


I evaluated the room and tried to make a plan.  I checked several places for organization supplies, and struck out until I hit Target.  They had several different options and it was very inexpensive.  I spent less than $50.00, and it is so much better!  I think it looks amazing, but it's mine. Of course I would love to have one of those fancy craft rooms with all the bells and whistles, but I'm happy with what I have.  At least I have a room to keep my crafts.  Poor Steve lost his "Man Cave" when we had our boys.  So I'm definitely not complaining.


Here is the finished project.

I have everything I need, organized neatly and perfectly where I can find it easily.  I love these new boxes, they are great.  I hope this inspires you and lets you know you don't have to spend a ton of money to have a nice little are for your stuff.


Love, BJ
