Craft Room Storage & Decor

See the bottom of this post for links to where I purchased everything!

We moved to a new home in April and the first thing I did after unpacking was start setting up my craft room!  In our old town home, I did all of my sewing and crafting on our dining room table and stored my supplies in random parts of the house.  Now, I have an entire room to spread out in and I love having all of my supplies in one place!  I'm sure I will make a lot of changes /additions to this space over time, but I wanted to share pictures of it now while it's decently clean and organized :)

I keep most of my supplies out in the open for easy access, but I try to keep most of it out of my toddler's reach.  He's not allowed in here by himself, but he does like to play in the craft room while I'm sewing so that motivates me to keep the room clean and make sure nothing dangerous is left out.

The desk can fold up into a closed cabinet, but I leave it open and use the extra leaf section as a cutting table.  I keep my cutting mat and sewing machine on the desk, and store my Sizzix machine underneath it when I'm not using it.  I also have our Kindle Fire propped up on an easel so I can watch Netflix while I'm crafting :)

The accent wall was done by the former owners and we decided to keep it knowing that this would probably be my craft room for a few years.  I'm not sure what method they used, but I think it was similar to this tutorial.


The green cabinet was a $5 yard sale find that my husband helped me re-finish and paint.  We painted it to match the green on the accent wall and I love the pop of color it gives to the room!  I store my felt sheets in these drawers and I keep small scraps of felt in the glass jar on top.

I absolutely love this peg board, and it comes in so many cute colors!  You can also buy different hooks and attachments to fit the board.  I had way too much fun organizing my stuff when I first got this :) My thread spools, embroidery floss and ribbon are all stored on here along with my fabric and craft scissors.

I store most of my findings in clear jars so that I can easily see what I have to work with, and as a bonus, they make colorful decor for the floating shelves! All of my beads, buttons, zippers and buckles are stored in these jars.  I love having everything out in the open where I can see what I have to work with.

I have a simple Brother sewing machine that is easy to work with and very easy to learn on.  One day I would love to own an embroidery machine too, but for now this is all I need.  I do most of my felt cutting at this desk as well, so one of the first things I made for my craft room was a little bag to act as a thread/scrap catcher.  It secures to the desk with velcro command strips and helps keep my work area clean from felt fuzz and loose thread!

I bought this Sizzix Big Shot a few months ago, and I can honestly say that I use it every day when I'm crafting!  This die cutting machine lets me quickly cut letters, numbers and simple shapes.  I absolutely love it and I'm always searching for new dies!  I'll write a separate blog post about all die cutting in the near future :)

This white cabinet was given to me by a family member and fits perfectly in this small space!  I buy fabric mostly by the 1/2 yard or in fat quarters, so this cabinet is great for storing those small cuts. There is also a shelf that pulls out at the top of the cabinet where I can set the scale to weigh my products.

My son loves to play with his felt food and quiet books when I'm sewing, so I keep them easily accessible for him in a storage bin on the floor. His favorite activity is making a pizza with silly ingredients on top :)

About a week after getting my Sizzix and an alphabet die cutter, I knew I needed a storage solution to keep the letters separate.  I found these embroidery floss boxes on sale at Michael's and they are perfect for keeping my felt letters organized!

I hope you enjoyed this peak into my craft room!  I still have more decorating to do and some upgrades to make but I love this space and I'm so happy with how it's coming together!  Leave a comment if you have a specific question about something :)
