I'm Lovin' My Nice Clean Craft Room!

I finished cleaning my craft room last week and I LOVE it! It is so organized and so clean. I still have a few more things to do, but I have to wait to get some $$ to buy a few more things.

I sat a small coffee table and 3 little chairs up next to my desk for Jace. The first day I put the table in I went in the craft room and all 3 of the kids were sitting at the table doing homework. It was so cute! The kids are enjoying having a space to come in and play or just talk to me while I'm crafting. Good Idea Mom!

Now I'm working on cleaning the living room and dining room before Easter. With a messy craft room a ton of craft stuff managed to spill into the other rooms.

and then the window that I can sit and look out while I'm sewing and crafting. I had an old crocheted piece that I put up for a valance and then the shelf has some of my vintage sewing supplies and threads, things I received in swaps and gifts from my kids.

Three small dressers and a plastic cabinet hold tons of organized craft supplies. Unfortunately I had to block one window, but this will hopefully only be temporary.

My back door that leads to the back porch that I can actually get to and will be able to open this summer and this weekend!!! Yay! It's finally suppose to be nice here in NY this weekend!

These are some of the built in shelves that I'm trying to get organized. I'm recycling lots of jars and filling them with craft supplies and I have a place for my craft books and magazines (except for the ones still in the basement....Sssshhhh!)

All my photo's, fabric, paper, shipping supplies, and other things on the back shelf. It looks cluttered and my photo's definitely still need a lot of organization, but there is a spot for everything and I know where things are now.

It's still cluttered, but it's clean and organized and I'm really enjoying my craft room!
