First of all, I am kicking things off with a tour around my craft room which I am been working on for MONTHS! It is finally time to reveal the entire thing to y’all. Just a heads up that this post has affiliate links in it. I am going to start in the center of the room because this table rocks my world! My husband built this table from scraps in our wood pile. It is HUGE and works perfectly for my needs. We did purchase a sheet of Plexiglas for the top which turned out to be pretty expensive. It was well worth it and this table should last me for years to come!
I don’t have build plans for the table but for those looking to make their own, he built the table in three pieces. The two end pieces are basically shelving units and the top was separate when we brought it into the room. We screwed everything together once it was in place. The ends are both great for storage while the middle is open allowing me to have two chairs for working.
We will talk more about those great baskets that are on the bottom a bit later. That top shelf is what I want to focus on right now!
This Rectangular Wire Tray from Walmart fits 15 mason jars perfectly! It allowed me to sort my paint pens by color and type.
Next to it, I picked up a kitchen organizer like this one to sort all of my large items that I use often. I had these stacked before and hated the hassle of needing that one item on the bottom. This fixes that problem perfectly!
Those gray tufted bar stools are from Target and they are so comfortable! I would highly recommend them! The rug I found on clearance at Rugs USA but it appears they are sold out. I would highly recommend Rugs USA for affordable area rugs however.
I have a few things on top of my work table including this lazy susan full of mason jars. I love having my tools within easy reach. The work lights I use are these clip on magnifying lamps. I have two of them on either side of the table.
Now we are going to continue the tour starting at the door used to come into the room and heading to the left. The first corner houses my sewing machine, peg board, and more!
That pegboard is a life saver and I highly recommend one for any craft room. As you can see, mine is well utilized for everything from ribbon to twine to washi tape and more! If you are interested in that great ribbon organizer, you can buy your own here (note it appears to be discontinued and this is one of the only places I could find it). It will work on a pegboard or just on a wall.
I had a few things that I decided to just hang directly onto the wall. I added empty frames around these items to make it look a little more neat and organized. I love how it turned out!
Yes my sewing machine is SUPER old. She is a workhorse and gets the job done however! We have had this desk for sometime but it really works in here for a sewing area. I covered the top of the desk with a product I found near the contact paper at Walmart. It is non-slip and really helps on this surface.
I actually changed out the knobs and pulls on this desk to give it a little makeover. I went with chalkboard labels on EVERYTHING in this entire room. I decided I just change too much for regular labels. You can click here to get the ones that I used.
I have two of these shelving units in this craft room to hold all of my craft supplies. This is hands down the best thing I did in this space. I was always using leftover furniture pieces from the rest of the house in my craft room. The problem is none of it WORKED for me. The best decision was ditching all of that and going with functional pieces that work in this room.
The cubes are all from Walmart. I used this 9-Cube Storage stacked with this 3-Cube Organizer. I used wicker baskets with chalkboard fronts throughout the entire room. You can also buy those dividers for the cube organizer. I used the quad divider and the X divider and alternated them down the center of each shelf.
I used the same fabrics throughout the room. From a cover for my chair cushion to that fun banner across the top of this side of the room.
The top of the cube shelves on this side of the room have a variety of these 12 x 12 paper organizers housing various supplies. I am also using two of these Galvanized Round Bins on either side.
The dividers on the shelves are mostly full but I do have some room to expand.
I love being able to see everything at one glance and have my craft supplies organized and ready to make something!
As we continue around the room, this is the next corner. I have my aprons hanging from a command hook on one side.
I also took some adhesive cork and re-did a cork board for this side of the room. Everything up here is memory from a fun event I have had the opportunity to attend.
I created these metallic “CREATE” letters for this space and am absolutely in love with the results! Click here to see how to make them for yourself! They hang over another set of cube organizers that are just like the ones above.
I have a wide variety of mason jars on top of this organizer. Y’all know I love my mason jar crafts! There are also a few organizers that are meant for fish tackle. They work perfectly for small objects like beads and more!
The paint and other supplies are organized in the same way as the other cubes.
I love that the paint is organized by type so I always know where to go to get the correct type for the project I am working on.
As you turn right from this corner, you can see the other side of my work table as well as the rest of this room. You can find that six piece world map here.
I used a day bed we already had to make a place to sit in this room. This can easily be turned into a guest bed for an over night guest. You can read more about the pillows and bedding here.
The wall above this side of the bed has a gallery full of great things. You can click here to see that watercolor state art or here to see that decoupaged monogram. The mirror was a candle holder from the thrift store that I painted and added in a mirror!
The night stand next to the bed is actually three vintage wood crates that I stacked together. I did not take a picture but under the bed I have additional storage boxes that house projects that need to be completed.
On the opposite side of the bed, I have a chest of drawers that contains various photo props.
Above that dresser, I painted a set of these hexagon shelves. I filled them with vintage finds and more!
The remainder of my vintage thread spool collection went into this old Coke crate. I love showing off those thread spools and it just seems to fit in a craft room!
I couldn’t stop there! I had to utilize every inch of this space. I used an over the door shoe organizer for the back of the door and added in more craft supplies.
I used chalkboard paper to create round labels and clothes pins to hold them on. Remember I change my mind too often so chalkboard is the main theme of this craft room!
The front of the door needed a little something as well so I made sure everyone felt welcome with this fun mason jar sign that was a Christmas gift.
That is it for my craft room but I wanted to let y’all have a peek into the closet that is in the adjoining room. I use it as well for craft supply organization.
I had a major clean out and over haul in this closet as well during this craft room makeover. Again I tried to do mainly chalkboard labels throughout.
The containers in here don’t match as well as in my craft room but y’all I can close these doors!
And if you thought I had a bunch of craft paint in my craft room, you have not seen anything yet!! That is one BIG craft room tour! The room is actually the smallest in our home but I was able to fit in BIG function with a plan and by purchasing pieces that work for me. Want to see a video tour? Watch below!

More Home Organization Help
Do images on Pinterest stress you out because they seem more like a fairy tale than something you can actually achieve?
Don’t fall into that pretty and perfect trap. You can get clutter-free and organized without living a fairy tale life.
No one knows this better than my friend Hilary! She has an entire course for sale that is dedicated to real-life organization ideas. I love that her approach works for any family with any budget.
My favorite part of this course is that Hilary strives to make your home easier to clean-up, so that it takes only minutes, instead of hours. Who couldn’t use more time and less cleaning?
Plus the system can make your house look fairly put together most times of the day. See for yourself with this course!
