The move from Georgia to Illinois meant a craft room re-do......this is the third time I have needed to re-create my craft studio, I'm not complaining aS it honestly has gotten better every time. For this space I saved my pennies and got some cabinets - I stamp, color, journal, and put vinyl on anything that will stand still so this needed to be a multi purpose space. After putting long counter tops in my last room I realized the loss to my counter space with storage system I was using on top of those counter tops, the goal this time was to keep them cleaner and with more things hung. Hence the use of Ikea shelves to hold a few of my embellishments and favorite punches......It would have looked pretty blah just hanging shelves so I purchased some frames from Hobby Lobby to put around them.
The picture on the right shows how I used some of my old storage bins and put them on top of a cabinet I bought and added some legs to so it would sit off the ground (they still need to be painted black). Below shows one of four cabinets packed with goodies - this one contains my embellishments and they are in bins labeled - buttons, crosses, bling, Easter, Halloween, Kids stuff, etc. The picture on the right next to it shows a small closet (there is a bigger one with lots of product but not organized yet, therefore no pictures) - this small closet contains my ribbon and other holiday embellishments - Yes, I may or may not have a ribbon addiction/problem - I am grateful to Ikea for these lovely inexpensive shelves to hold the ribbon....and Yes, that is ribbon hanging and yes, there is ribbon in some of those drawers - you can never have too much ribbon.
