My New Craft Room ( / office!)

Morning All,

I hope you're all well and had lovely weekends?  Mine was quite a quiet one but lovely all the same!  :o)

So, while I've been out of action with my broken wrist I had to have something nice to focus on (before I went completely mad!) which was.....MY NEW CRAFT ROOM / office!!!  I think Hubby must've felt a bit sorry for me as he gave me the green light to plan it out to my heart's content and even painted it all last weekend too :o))  It's all painted in white with the colour coming from my accessories but he painted it all, put up shelves, cleared it all out and moved it all back in...what a star ay!  And here it is, in all it's lovely shiny new glory!!...

Looking in through the door...

Close up of my desk...


All my Copics (yummy!) all organised!!  The rail and pots were from Ikea, talk about bargain - the rail was £2 something and the pots were 50p each so the whole thing cost about £7!!...

A taller shot of my desk, can you see my lovely posh storage cases!!... 


The other side of my room, all my stash and more posh storage!!... 


My window sill / button storage!!  These jars were also from Ikea and cost £2 something for 4, another bargain - don't you love Ikea, lol!!...


Next to my desk behind the door (the office bit, well one of the cupboards is full of 'work' folders and the other one has the bottom draw for 'work' stuff but the top two for more crafty bits!!)  Can you see my other posh storage...


Close up of my posh storage boxes - the right hand shelf...


Close up of my posh storage boxes - the left hand shelf... 


Close up of the box itself, aren't they pretty!!  Another bargain from TK Maxx.  These 2 were £10.99 each, the biggest square case was £7.99 (on the left hand shelf) and the smallest square case was £5.99 (on the right hand shelf).  The cases are currently empty, but I'm sure it won't be long until they're rammed with something lovely!!...


Inside the big boxes!  All my ribbons are now on Ribbon Rings and organised  :o))  This is my girlie box; pinks, reds, blacks and whites etc... 


And this is my Boy box; blues, purples, greens and browns etc... 


These posh storage boxes were from Next and match the curtains and light shade.  They were £15 for all 3... 


...and store all my Wild Orchid Craft flowers!!... 


Here's my racking housing all my Really Useful Boxes full of stamps and other goodies!!  Can you believe I only have 1 empty box in among all these, lol!!... 


Another view of my boxes.  Not a very good picture actually (sorry) but the top of the racking is solid so can double as my work bench for my Cricut Machine (on the left) and my big shot (on the right) which I've cleverly managed to chop in half in the piccie, lol!!  Can you spot the empty box?... 


Isn't it lovely??  I'm never going to want to leave it, lol!!  I'm pretty sure once my cast is off it will never look this tidy again but at least I have these piccies to drool over, lol!!  Hubby was so impressed with it he even started calling it 'his room'!!  I don't think so, lol!!  I love it and really can't wait to get in and START CRAFTING!!

See you all soon guys, now to get the rest of the house this organised!!...
Much love,

Hi Cazza, Wow your new craft room is gorgeous! I love all your pretty storage boxes. I saw some of these in TK Maxx a few months ago but didn't buy any but seeing yours I wish I had now. Think I need to take a trip there in the week ;-)

I know this is going to sound very sad but if this was my craftroom I would have to keep popping in to admire it lol!

Glad your wrist is on the mend :-)
