Now you can ask questions on every Hometalk post to get more insight and information about your favorite projects!
if you're lucky enough to have space to craft in your home, then you know that it can get unorganized fast.

My hubby and I built the 10ft long desk ourselves using stock white cabinets from Lowe's. We now have plenty of storage for my craft stash in the cabinets and the drawers, plus there's still two places to sit. The 10ft long desk top also provides a great tabletop workspace, even for the larger projects.

I also wanted everything to be within an arms's reach. Two 2x3ft framed peg boards sit above the desk, both packed with tools and accessories.

On the desktop I have mason jars filled with goodies... paintbrushes, decorative scissors, writing utensils and hand tools.

I even added some silverware organizers in the drawers to help arrange my smaller items (like buttons, washi tape and resin flowers).

My Silhouette Cameo now has a special place right on the desktop, and my vinyl and tools are tucked away neatly the a drawer.

      Do they live with you? I think I'd be putting my foot down either way and make them get the stuff out of YOUR room. Just my opinion.

    I love your beautiful and organized craft room. Mine is in the garage and not as nice as yours. Good job!
