Craft Room Photos

*** Warning photo heavy post***

Hi all,

I have finally got my act together and taken a bunch of photos of my craft room.

Back story ... we bought this house in June last year. The house is 20 years old and the previous owners did a reno in 2005. A part of the reno was to close the carport in to make it a games room and build an enclosed garage adjoining. So this room was a games room and they had a pool table in here. We are not really pool players so I convinced my hubby it would be an awesome craft/storage room. I used to have one of the bedrooms in my old house filled with IKEA furniture as a craft room. You can see it hereYes, I've got a lot of craft "stuff" .... don't we all ... but it has taken me 12 years to collect it all, so I don't feel (completely) guilty.

I had seen quite a few craft rooms on the internet made from kitchen cupboards, so that was what I had my heart set on. I got a few quotes and designs from kitchen places, Bunnings, IKEA and Masters. The kitchen places were out of my price range since we ended up having to get the concrete floor in the room levelled. So, we decided on Masters.

We ripped up the carpet and put down wood-look lino strips. Put the cupboards together ourselves and then the stone guys came in and put on the bench top. I have spent the past few months finding storage options and rearranging everything at least twice.

So here are the photos....

Storage for some craft stuff, plus Christmas, DVDs, Cds, games etc.

Overhead cupboards ... I did have them filled with my Cricut cartridges,
but I decided to  put all my carts in a couple of boxes and free up some
space ... hmmm, now what to fill the shelves with?
