Before and After: Taming a Messy Craft Room

Roxy Nova recently posted some inspiring before and after photos of her craft room, and I absolutely love and admire this transformation. She says, "I'm very embarrassed to be posting these [photos] because my house is usually not nearly this messy, but once i decided to redo the room, everything kind of went to hell in a handbasket. it really became a dumping ground."


As messy and daunting as this room may look in this picture, Roxy Nova was able to tame it with a lot of hard work and some smart organizing ideas. To see the glorious afters,

.

Can you believe the difference? Roxy Nova made sure to create an organized space for her sewing machine, which you can see in this photo. She also took down the closet doors and replaced them with pretty tree-printed curtains. Multiple shelving units provide space for organizing boxes of patterns, fabrics, and other needed craft materials. Roxy's husband hung up organizing units for tools and notions including scissors, thread, and ribbon.

Oh, and as if all that wasn't enough, Roxy also reupholstered this cute chair. I love her use of color and pattern. It really makes the room pop, and seems like the perfect place for sewing, crafting, and getting inspired.


I am seriously feeling some craft room envy right now. Are you?

What an amazing job: so envious of your organization. Where'd it all go? Was it a lot of major downsizing? I have the trouble concerning my arts and crafting endeavors where I want to save anything and everything because it might come in useful some day. :-\

Clutter really attracts other clutter doesn't it? Before you know it the clutter has staged a coup and taken over completely. I have an extra room intended to be a crafts-room one day, now it is filled with lots and lots of outdoor and indoor toys my 4 year old currently doesn't play with much. The room badly needs some TLC and hard work. Unfortunately it is not ranking very high on my renovating/decorating to do-list for the moment.Good job, Roxy Nova!

Egad, the before picture kind of looks like my craft corner. I suppose I should remedy that.
