Recycled Craft Room Decorating Ideas

We’re building an addition on our house, and when it’s all finished up, I’m going to have my very own craft room. Right now, my husband and I are sharing the front office of our house, but soon he’s going to move his music and writing stuff into his own office, and I am planning to totally redo the room to make it a crafty sanctuary.

Of course, no craft room would be complete without some good storage and organizing solutions! Here are some of the recycled ways I’m hoping to deck out my new studio.

    Oh you are so lucky to be getting a craft room!!!! I would love one of those so I don’t have to spend more time digging stuff out and then putting it away again than I do actually crafting!!!
    Make sure you show us the end result!

I am in the midst of a craft room redo – and turning the entire closet door into a chalkboard with the rest of my paint.  A photo frame with a piece of tin in it will be a magnetic board for notes, and a lazy susan from a yard sale find will hold jars with my supplies on a shelf next to my work table, so I can spin and choose without having to reach over other things.  A faded camp chair with a “slipcover” will be my hand sewing spot.

     These are awesome ideas. Peach crates are a great idea for extra storage. Add some paint and give it new life!
