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'.....plus 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.
