My Craft Room (Re-) Design

Spread the love

I designed my craft room once and figured all was good.  The design was working fine for me and I pretty much had a place for everything.  My original craft room organization required a bit less space.  That was when I was making crafts mainly just for myself to use in my own home or cabin or to give as gifts.

When I first opened my Etsy store, The Rustic Attic, I had a very limited inventory of some surplus craft items and a few antiques.  Now, however, I am having fun with it and my inventory has grown considerably.

Every time I make a sale, I am feeling the pressure to add more to my stock.   So….this leads me to the problem of needing space to store all my goods!

Luckily, I was able to do some re-arranging and consolidating of my supplies to make room in my storage hutch just for inventory.

In April, I purchased a new desk for my home office.  This left me with the hutch off my old pieced together desk to use somewhere else – hello craft room!

I hate to have anything go to waste and I had the perfect spot in mind for this desk hutch……the top of my storage credenza!  This was my credenza before:

And here is everything from my storage hutch that I needed to find a new place for:

I had already consolidated what was inside the hutch doors to fit inside the credenza doors.  I was hoping that once I placed the desk hutch on top of the credenza, I would have plenty of room to store all of my shelf items in the new space.  And, here is what I ended up with:

I have a spot for everything and now my hutch is empty and ready for me to start storing my inventory!  I just love it when a plan comes together!  The best part was that I was able to re-use furniture from another part of the house….once again.  My whole craft room design is made up of leftovers but it somehow works out perfectly.

Happy Crafting!

I'm addicted to crafting and decorating my downtown city loft and up north rustic cabin.

  1. Love the desk hutch & nicely organized storage. I need to work on my spare room this summer when I don’t have to stop to pick up the kiddo from school, lol. I need to get a paper organizer like you have!

  2. I wish my working space looks like yours!!!!

  3. OMG, way toooo clean honey. I admire it but don’t think I could get a thing done. Wouldn’t wanna’ mess it up 🙂

    Thanks for the peek

  4. I love that you got creative and re-used items you already had. I also can relate to the “neat” factor in a creative space. If my space is a mess, I can not think clearly. Gr8 and helpful site. Thanx……Jen

  5. Hi Renee,

    I love this hutch. I would like to get one made for my daughter’s bedroom. I was wondering if you would be so kind as to provide me with the dimensions.

    Thanks!

    Kind regards,
    Jane

  6. I live in a small 1 bedroom apartment. My dining room is my craft room and it is not pretty. Any ideas?
