Open House: Where Do You Work on Projects?

I'm so envious of Craftster member Vertigoat's craft space. She writes, "I've spent the last few days turning a pit of a room I could barely walk through the doorway of into a craftroom . . . I'm really excited about having a space where all this stuff is out and accessible and I can make things."

I've never had a designated crafting room, or even crafting closet! I'm sure that all of us who love to craft, make art, or work on projects, but don't have the room in our house to do so efficiently, are envious of Vertigoat's space.

So, where do you work on projects? Are you lucky enough to have a designated room for it? Do you settle for a corner? Or do you have to haul out your materials and then put them away every time you work on something? Tell me by commenting below!

I usually craft at the kitchen table. My supplies are stored in the closet of the spare bedroom.

I have my crafting area set up in the basement. Fortunately, it's a daylight basement and has a sliding door out to a patio so it's not dark and damp. It's not a very pretty area yet but it works and i have tons of space to make a mess!

I usually craft sitting on the floor in the living room in front of the tv. It's definitely not ideal, but I've yet to turn our spare bedroom into a usable space.

I'm considering making our living room partially into my crafting area. I like to craft and watch t.v., so I'm thinking of combining both those areas in one room. Why not?

Wow, I wish I had a place of my own...then I might have somewhere to actually tackle projects. I just pull out whatever I'm working on and work while I watch TV on a couch or on the floor. sad. @_@

I use my glass dining room table. Definitely NOT ideal. I use a shelf in the coat closet with Ikea storage boxes for craft supplies and some drawers there for fabric. I have a little desk in the dining area (that really doesn't belong there) where I keep the supplies for things I sell in my etsy shop. When we look at houses a craft room/area is a MUST. :)

I have a workbench in the basement.

I use either the kitchen table or the desk in my bedroom. I'm lucky enough to have a giant desk (thank you ikea) so i can easily move my monitor and keyboard to the side and have the entire rest of the deskspace for projects.
