Craftroom Update

Hey Cricutjunkies,

I recently updated my craft room so I thought this was a great opportunity to join Show us your Craft room Blog Hop at Doubleclick - AKA Abusybee. They are introducing the new Skittles Design Team members and showing their craft space. Stop by and pick up some blog candy.

This is my updated Craft room. See June 9th blog post for the before pictures and video. My craft space is now very functional, organized and clutter free.

This is truly my Happy Place.

This is the view when you walk into my 120 sq ft Craft room.
New paint color and laminate flooring was the biggest change.
I re-purposed my furniture by trading with my daughter and using what I already had.
Most of my furniture is from IKEA with the exception of the cubes from Michael's. 

Computer and Explore station.
 Printer is no longer under my desk it has a home.

My Craft Desk
I stacked the two shelves that were standing up on the side of my Expedit. My husband attached them together in the back, added the table top and now I have 10 cubbies instead of 8 and the desk is 37" instead of  35" tall. He also drilled 2 holes for the cords and to make it fit flush against the wall. 

 I removed the closet doors, put the Michael's cubes on rollers now I roll my paper cubes to my desk.  My embellishment center and shelf below has not changed much however I condensed my 6x6 and 8x8 paper pads down to one shelf and my cuttlebug folders down to one bin.
I find it easier to keep like items in bins or jars that way I can bring to my desk if needed. 

 I added a peg board to hang embellishments that are still in their package, now I can see what I have before buying new ones.
The polka dot bin is from IKEA but I bought it at Good will for $5.00 and added the polka dot paper for a little decoration. 

Ink pad storage is an old cassette holder that I bought for $2.00 at Good will. I spray painted it white and use it to hold Ink pads, ribbon and Misc items. It is very functional and I don't have to leave my desk to look for an ink pad. 

Desk Top Essentials
OTT lites, I lucked up and found them on clearance at Michael's for $25.00 and I used a 20% off clearance coupon. Heat gun holder is a paperclip holder from the dollar store it works great because it is magnetic and green. My other essentials are stamp scratch paper, various types of glue, frequently used pens and Most Important a PROJECT. 

My apologies for such a long post, hope you enjoy,
