My Craft Room ~ Part 1

Hello crafting buddies! I'm here to share some pictures of my craft space, prompted by Gloria Stengal from Craft Hoarders Anonymous. She shared a storage tip that really works for her and challenged her readers to share pictures of their space, so here I am! It's a little picture heavy, so this is part 1. I'll have to divide them up into different posts as I took lots and lots of pictures! I hope you'll stick with me... and don't forget, you can click on the pictures to enlarge them to get a better view.
This is what you see when you come in the door. The large cabinet to the left is one that my hubby got for free! Well, actually he got two of them. One is in my basement and holds lots of small antiques that I sell. He was working on a church project where the church was being torn down to build elderly housing. All he had to do was remove the cabinets before demolition day and we got two awesome storage pieces!

Here's what's inside:


















As you can see, I like to use old wooden boxes and jars, well anything old, to store my supplies in. I think they all have a story to tell and make my crafting space feel warm and cozy, just like the rest of my home. Stay tuned tomorrow for more pictures of my craft room. Thanks so much for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit

  19. I love your space. The antiques, and style of storage you use are amazing. I wish I had a space that could show that all off. Although - that might turn into a new kind of hoarding (smile).
