My Craft Room Renovation, Part 1

I decided a few months ago that I wanted and needed to reorganize my craft area. The area consists of my craft room, which is now primarily an office space with craft storage, and what I call the craft annex. The craft annex is actually the landing at the top of the stairs where the craft table lives.

So I started to envision what I wanted for my spaces.  In my office I wanted to add shelves and rearrange the furniture to creat some space for my toddler to play. I also REALLY wanted to paint. I was tired of looking at the off white paint. My favorite color is purple, so I knew that I would choose that for my walls.

The first step to my office re-do was to move a dresser out of the office and into the annex area. To do this I had to empty the dresser. That was fine, because I knew I was going to put craft supplies in there after moving it.

Next I moved my punches off my office door and onto the storage closet door, by the dresser.  This puts most of my frequently used supplies all in one convenient area.

Then I moved all the items that used to be in the dresser out of my office so that I could paint my first wall.  The wall by the window is where I am putting up nothing but shelves.  Here are before & after pictures of what I have so far.  I haven't completely organized my shelves, but it gives you a good idea of what it will look like!

So, this is where I will stop for now. Watch for my next posts about my renovation!

Happy Crafting!
