Before & After: A Fresh and Functional Craft Room Makeover!

Before & After: A Fresh and Functional Craft Room Makeover!

After last week's roundup of craft room storage and organization ideas, I had to share this brilliant craft room makeover: it's full of (even more) clever takeaways and inspiration!   


created at: 04/02/2012

It started out looking like just about every craft/work/all-purpose dumping ground I've ever seen, but with a little creativity and some smart organization, it's now a highly-functional and stimulating work room!  The crew at Real Simple did a great job of dividing this space into three distinct "zones", including turning the closet into an orderly gift wrap/craft supply/creativity shrine.  I really love what they did with this little sewing corner, too!  Check out more before and after photos of this space right here!

Jo - Same!  How do we get on the Real Simple makeover list??

I just saw this last night as I read the new issue of Real Simple!  Great job!  It seemed like this gal's biggest problem was just a lack of furniture and storage.  The crew picked some awesome solutions for her.  If only I could have them over to MY house!
