The Last Messy Room Tour

OK people it is time to get real...or at least its time for me to get real, lol.
I have been re-vamping, organizing or defunkifying my room off and on (mostly off) for what seems to be forever....seriously though, it has been a year or 2 that I have been working on it.
So here it is in all its glory and mess.

My craft room is downstairs in the corner, without any windows.
It measures 13 'x 7'.
But with my wall of cabinets it measures 13' x6' with the desk and such the areas are smaller.

Here is my desk.
My desk measures 6' x 2.5'
I made my desk by putting 3 book cases in a "C" shape and adding this piece of melamine on top of them.
I did re-work it a couple of months ago and like how it is now.
I like that I have more room to work on and I LOVE that my markers an other colouring mediums are front and center.
Looking at all of those pretty colours just makes me happy.

Here is the view of my room from when you first step into it.
I have this wall of cabinets and in the center of them is pegboard that I painted to match my walls.
To see the mess inside the cabinets, you'll have to check out the video.

This wall here is behind the door.
I usually have the door open, so the punches on the wall behind the door and hanging from the door can't be seen.
I love my wall of punches as well as how I have them stored in that wall  unit.
The tower is 4 units stacked on top of each other.
The first 2 units which is 6 drawers holds my washi tape.
The other 2 units holds my stencils and other embellishments.

This is my paper area.
I have my 12x12 paper pads in those black bins and my 6x6 paper packs in the cubbies.
The unit against the wall holds mini albums.

Believe it or not, I think this is the worst part of my room..its my little secret....
Because it is on the other side of my desk, it can't be seen when you walk into my room.
Those carts, I love them and and don't, lol.
I love them because they hold a lot of supplies and can be moved around.
I don't love them because it is harder to get out the supplies in the lower tiers and they take up space.
One held my colouring mediums and my art journal mediums.
The other held my journaling and planner supplies.....but now I don't know what is in what as they are all mixed up.
Those clear Iris containers hold layouts that need a home or need some photos.

Lastly this is my cutting station.
It is in my laundry room, which is just outside me craft room.
I really like this area.
What I need to do it raise that middle shelf so I can tuck my Cricut under the Brother scan and cut.

I love my little craft room.
The whole family took part in putting it together with me and I love the colour and that it is a space I can get lost in.
With that being said, I really need to take care of it and defunkify it.

I did a video in full detail of my room...every nook and cranny, lol.
If you would rather watch it on my YouTube channel (as on my blog, it seems to cut off part of the screen) here is a link to my channel "Tracy's Treasures 24"

I am going to be working on my room one area or one supply type at a time.
I am going to be sharing my process on here and my YouTube, but am also challenging anyone who wants to join me!
Every Saturday I am going to post the area that we are going to be working on, on my Facebook Group Tracy's Treasures Shares in the Files section.
I would love to see how you are doing!!

I am off to my daughter's house to help her with some organizing....hmmmm maybe thats why mine is a mess, lol.

  1. You have a lovely roomy space there; I have a love/hate relationship with those carts too. I stuff way too much in the bottom shelves and then forget it's even there...I need to do a search and rescue mission on my stuff, too hugs, Julierose

  2. What an awesome crafty space you have!! I'm too embarrassed to show mine...I've added so many cabinets and such that it's a maze to walk through ;) Have a great weekend!! Big hugs :)

  3. Looks like a great space for crafting in. I've worked on mine more times than I can count!! LOL But I'm happy with it right now! I have 3 small windows in my room, but I have lots of lighting in there to help me out!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful space with us!!! Have a great weekend!


  4. Your room looks a whole lot better than mine!! I keep telling myself that I need to get in there and organize and get rid of things I haven't used in years. Maybe this week I will LOL!!
    Have a great day!

  5. Hello Mrs. Tracy. I am a Pastor from Mumbai, India. I am glad to stop by your profile on the blogger and the blog post. I am also blessed and feel privileged and honored to get connected with with you as well as know you and about your interest in crafting and helping your husband in keeping the books. Looking at the space you have for crafting it shows your passion for it. The way you have arranged those things look so neat. Well I love getting connected with the people of God around the globe to be encouraged, strengthened and praying for one another. I have been in the Pastoral ministry for last 40 yrs in this great city of Mumbai a city with a great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the brokenhearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the west to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. We would love to have your grown up daughters come to Mumbai with their friends to work with us during their vacation time. I am sure they will have life changing experience. My email id is : dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon. God's richest blessings on you, your family and friends also wishing you and your family a blessed and a Christ centered rest of the year 2018.

  6. What wonderful space - I'm envious of such space for crafting.

  7. Your room is awesome - you have so much stuff in there for a smaller space.
    I really like the cutting station just outside your room.
    And who else can say they have room to hold their own crop when ever they want to??

  8. Your room is great! You did a great job with the space you have. I have a big room, but it looks kind of junky to me. I don't think there's any way around it with so much stuff! It just seems to grow!


Leave me some love and I will return it right back to you :)
