Craft Room Make-Over with Thirty-One: Part Three - The Final Product
Thank you for taking the time to join me along this three part series featuring a make-over of my new craft room! In case you missed part one or part two here are my previous post links: Part One: Shelves & Part Two: Pegboard. One of the best parts of this project for me has been finding ways to better organize all of my supplies so they are easy to access. It's been great finding things I had forgotten I had too!
For my final step in the make-over I utilized some more products from Thirty-One, but this time not on the wall. This time I used them for the desktop and the floor. The best part of my desktop products is that they all have a handle making them portable and easy to move. Featured in the photo above from left to right are the Littles Carry-All Caddy (two are shown), Mini Catch-All Bin, Double Duty Caddy, and a standard size Catch-All Bin. These are all great for organizing projects and supplies in them. I especially love the Double Duty Caddy (the one with the ice cream cones) because it has two sides to it where you can put supplies and a nice handle in the center for carrying it. I was able to put three plastic cups on each side of this one to organize things like different types of markers, colored pencils, and other supplies. This is so much nicer than our old system of using pencil boxes stacked up. They took up so much more space and weren't nearly as convenient. I also love the Catch-All Bin because we can use it to take a larger project to another part of the house or on the go to work on it. All of these products could also be stored up on a shelf too which is nice too.
And last but definitely not least are the two products I used to help me organize some piles of fabric. I had purchased some bolts of fleece marked down cheap a few months back and before now had no where that seemed logical to store them. I didn't want to take them off the bolt and fold them up, and now I'm glad I didn't. They stand up perfectly in a Stand Tall Bin. Plus with the long handles it's really easy to move them around if needed. The shorter bin is perfect for my finished projects. Throughout the year I work on making fleece scarves and pet toys for craft shows I do in the fall and this is a great place to toss them as I get them done. Both bins stand up perfectly on their own whether they are empty or full. This is great because I don't have to worry about them collapsing.
And in case you were wondering how it all looked together once I was done here's a final photo of my make-over project. One thing I've always liked about Thirty-One is that their new patterns look great along side old patterns. This makes it nice because you can add in fun new patterns (like the Lotta Colada pineapple pattern) and they don't stand out like a sort thumb!
To give you an idea of how much I enjoyed this project I've already hung a second pegboard and put up another set of shelves on the other side of the room by my computer desk. I loved having all of my crafting supplies organized so I figured why not do the same with the rest of my space. It's still a work in progress, but let me tell you from the parts I already have done I'm loving it too!
PS: I actually got this idea from a Thirty-One catalog, so don't think just because something is in a catalog it's hard to do. This project was super easy, and honestly I spent more time deciding where to put everything than hanging the shelves and pegboard.
