Pictures of Craft Rooms
Susan Santoro from organized31.com
"This is my first craft room ever since we're a military family that moves every 1-3 years. It also serves as my office. I chose versatile furniture and storage items since I don't know when we might be moving again. I also look for thrifted or repurposed items to use for craft storage (my all-time favorite hack is using a cookie tray from store bought cookies for washi tape storage)."

"I decided to organize my yarn by weight and by color. The chunky and super bulky yarns are in the cubes on the lower left side, and the worsted weight and lighter yarns are in the big unit. I had to make an extra cube for chunky cream yarns because that’s my all time favorite color and weight. I found inspiration for the color organization from the yarn stores I’ve visited including the Lion Brand Yarn Studio and Purl Soho. They always organize by color and it’s so beautiful."

"This is my work space, in its full glory of disorganized chaos. It’s almost always like this because I have a bunch of projects on the go at all times. Even my kids get involved and help contribute to the chaos. I’m sure I’ll get around to tidying it up, one day. But for now I prefer to create things instead of spending that time cleaning."

"I am slowly working on my craft room/office but recently did (finally!) organize my circular needles! Those circular needles and their lack of storage/organization have plagued me for the 20+ years that I have been a knitter. This little magnet board that I mounted in my craft room is just the beginning of a finely-tuned and well-organized craft room (fingers crossed!)"

"Here's a picture of my sewing space, complete with pieces of my current projects thrown everywhere. For some people, creativity is a very messy process, and I am definitely one of those people! On the left wall are my two vintage Kenmore sewing machines, and my homemade sewing thread rack that's made out of a single piece of welded wire mesh and some lace. (I have a tutorial on my blog that shows you how to make the thread rack!) The large table in the center of the room is just a piece of thick, cabinet-grade plywood placed on top of four sturdy wooden crates, so there's plenty of storage underneath in the crates, and lots of workspace on the tabletop to make whatever I've been dreaming up. On the opposite wall (not pictured) is my serger, and a huge wardrobe that I use for fabric storage. I hit up some local auctions and Goodwill to furnish most of the room, and it ended up being a very functional space for not a whole lot of cash!"

"Have you hoped for a dream place to work on arts and crafts? I have for years. My dream finally became a reality when we moved to a new home that had space on the side yard to build an addition, one dedicated to my creative projects. A bonus was that it came with a view. I call it Studio 13 because it will accommodate 13 friends or students. Just as my space was finally completed, Covid sequestered us all. It was heartbreaking that I was unable to share my new studio after waiting so long for it. I’m hoping that soon I will be able to invite my first guests to Studio 13. You can see all the details of the construction from dirt to counters to organizers at https://www.domestic-divaonline.com/inside-studio-13-now."

"This is my Uber cool industrial drawer system I dumpster dove for. It weighs about 400 lbs because it's all metal. We reinforced the bottom and sides with wood and painted the wood. The drawers had to be scrubbed by hand as there was oooooollllld masking tape on them and I wanted to preserve the numbers (so no sand blasting). Some of the drawers were missing (people got to it before me and took one or two) but I use those spaces for the jars and canvases etc. It took about 3 weeks of non stop work, but I love it!"

"I have always loved crafting and have a little bit of everything when it comes to supplies: paper crafts, painting and coloring, sewing/fabric, crochet/knitting/yarn, and general crafts. Unfortunately, I live in a one-bedroom Chicago apartment, which doesn't leave much room. I store everything in my bedroom and move what I need when I need it. I utilize a lot of plastic storage containers, a trunk for things I don't use as often, and a fold-out table with drawers.
"One set of storage drawers holds ribbon, paint, glue, and coloring pencils and crayons. A large plastic tub holds my fabric. Another storage drawer piece holds my felt, fabric scraps, and buttons.
"I found the bookshelf that holds my yarn, buttons, and a few other things in the alley by the trash. I thought it might work for yarn and it does...well, unless I buy even one more skein. I hope to paint it one day for another pop of color!
"Above it is a simple floating box shelf that holds my coloring and craft books."

"My area has a lot of white, so it feels bright and open. I feel inspired when things are organized (and easy to find when I want them) and so have incorporated many bins and boxes into my shelves. I have many art/ craft interests and having a designated bin for all like items has been a great idea. I have just few items on display- my sketchbooks, colorful journals and rainbows of markers that make me smile :)"

"My sewing studio is a happy place, with bright colors and textures that help inspire craft projects. I created designated areas for fabrics, added shelves to hold supplies, and placed thread organizers close to the machine so they’re easy to reach. It’s my favorite space!"

"It's actually a she shed and one of the main reasons we wanted this house. My husband built me 4 rolling tables to craft on. It works out awesome for hosting monthly Pinterest parties as well - I can have 3 crafts on each table and a table for eating at. Even though we live in the middle of nowhere right now, it's nice to have a happy place to escape and craft in."

"Pens, colored pencils, and markers are something I use on a regular basis and like to have them handy. Spending money on cool storage is not my idea of fun. These are giant tin cans from my daughter’s preschool. I like them because they were free and I can move them around."

"This is where most of the magic happens at Stitches n Scraps – my photo and video space! The fabulous custom wall art is from a small business called Strung by Shawna. That wall makes a fabulous backdrop for videos but it’s more than just decoration! All those soft surfaces help to absorb sound and reduce echoes when recording videos. This setup developed over years as my needs changed, but now I can record tutorials from multiple angles, broadcast live videos, and teach online. I have the one main overhead light, which is a great daylight color for shooting things on the table. A photo backdrop draped in front of it helps to diffuse the light and avoid shadows. The smaller lights on the side do the same thing, for videos, by bouncing light off the walls. The computer stand holds my computer and webcam for live videos or multi-angle needs, and the tripod holds my phone for shooting straight down, or can rotate to shoot my face if I only need the one angle."
