Card Catalog Craft Room Storage

card-catalog-storage.jpg

ChiWei from One Dog Woof has always loved the idea of having lots of little drawers to store all those bits and pieces of craft supplies she owns. When a card catalog came up on Craigslist at a reasonable price, ChiWei jumped on it, or rather, had her husband jump on it to ensure she became the proud new owner. ChiWei and her helpful hubby cut the original piece in half to create two consoles, built a new top for one of the pieces, and then gave them a fresh coat of paint. Now instead of one old broken down card catalog, ChiWei has two console tables to hold all of her goodies and plenty of room on top for display!

Rolling Storage Basket for Less

Adding wheels to a basket is a great way to increase its functionality. The good news is that you don’t have to spend big bucks to buy a rolling basket when you can make one yourself. That’s exactly what Tanya from twelveOeight did when a rolling basket from Pottery Barn had her drooling. Tanya freshened up an old wicker basket with paint and then added casters to complete the update for a grand total of $10!

Wall Hutches for a Kids’ Work Area

There has been some serious DIY going on at the vintage home that Jaime from That’s My Letter recently became the proud owner of. Last week, I shared the schoolhouse desks that Jaime built to transform an empty space into a rockin’ work area for her kiddos. With the help of Ana White, Jaime added the perfect companions in two wall hutch units that provide plenty of storage and style. I simply adore this space! Jaime, my friend, you are one talented lady!

Get Organized with a Family Command Center

With a growing family, Sarah of My Simple Obsession was in need of a command center to keep track of her family’s numerous appointments and notes. She loved one from Pottery Barn but says, “…no way would I ever pay $500 dollars or even close to that for a command center that I could make myself.  So I did! And for a fraction of that price!!” I just love Sarah’s “Pin it” corkboard tile and how she spruced up her board with fabric rosette thumbtacks and a bunting. So cute!

DIY Craft Table

Beth from NashvillePug was in need of a new crafting table with lots of storage and plenty of space for sewing. To meet her needs, Beth used two Closetmaid Cubeicals to form the sides of her new table and 2 by 6 beams for the top. This is such a simple project thanks to Beth’s genius brainstorm to use the Cubeicals!

Best of PB #2: Wooden Tray to Hanging Jewelry Organizer

Melissa from A Time for Everything created this vintage piece to hold all of her jewelry. Melissa said, “I love old wood spools and finding new ways to use them, especially after finding a large Ziploc bagful for $2 at a garage sale.  As I was making my jewelry organizer, I knew that spools would be an ideal fit with the burlap and distressed wood I was using.  I incorporated them to hang not only necklaces, but bracelets as well.”

Window Frame Corkboard

Morena of Morena’s Corner and contributor at Crafts Unleashed was looking for an attractive way to create a real pin board in her craft room. Pottery Barn had a beautiful chalkboard that she liked, so Morena borrowed the design as inspiration for her bulletin board. I love the window frame look and how each section could be designated to a specific purpose or member of the family for further organization.

Fabric and Ribbon Corkboards

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!
