Craftroom update...

I thought I'd share with you today a few updated photos of my craftroom.

My room is only very small & I am a bit of an organisation freak, so I'm always trying to jig it around & re-organise things to gain extra space!

Behind my door I have all my ribbon, it hangs on rails which are from Ikea..

Then, turning to the left, I have my Magnetic wall where all my nestabilities live.. I still some of this magnetic sheeting if anyone wants some??..I bought a 10 metre roll of it! - It works out around £10 per metre & mine here is approx 1.5metres..

turning left again, we come to my Ikea Expedit unit - I LOVE THIS!!! this unit is where basically everything lives..

My favourite parts are..My 24 Display Dynamics trays holding all my patterned papers..

& some really cute cupcake storage boxes from Whsmiths, these are all labelled up & contain acrylic stamps, distressing inks, mulberry flowers, sticky gems & embellishments, chipboard letters..

On top of the unit I have my scrapbook albums..

& my brilliant rotating glass jar holder which I got from my local charity shop a few months ago for just £3.50!!!!!! I've filled each jar with different coloured flat backed pearls..

moving around again we get to my desk space..
Ikea shelves hold all my small bits & bobs..Ikea rails for most of my punches..

On my desk I have my Stampin Up ink caddy..

Under my desk I have drawers filled with all my stampin up & penny black wooden stamp but I forgot to take a pic! anyway, moving around again we come to my messy Printing & Cricut area..

& then some more Display Dynamics trays holding all my Stampin up Coloured cardstock & labelled accordingly.. (can you see the stack of A4 papers next to the shelves???..they really bug me as they don't have a proper home!!!)

Next to that is my Really useful button storage - organised by colour & shape..obviously!

Then finally we get back around to the other side of the room which Is my little sewing desk area, which isn't really organised yet & i'm not sure what to do with it, hence the empty shelves above & fabric just shoved in a box on the floor!!!..

I hope you like my little pictorial tour...If you have any questions just ask.




Wow Clair
Looks fabulous and so organised,
Hugs Dianne xx :)

I love it! So organised - I wish mine were finished (and that organised!)

Do you happen to remember what the Ikea shelves are called that you have used to hold all your small bits & bobs? I think I 'need' them.


Clair Matthews said...

Thanks for your comments ladies! :o)

Dawn..I can't remember?!?..I've just had a quick looky on the ikea website but I can't find them..I'm pretty sure they still sell them though (there's loads more instore than online).. they were in the kitchen section.

Are they Bygel rails from Ikea???

Also, I LOVE those little boxes with your buttons! My Mom just passed three onto me and I think they are the best thing since sliced bread!

Great ideas and your room looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing! said...
