Craft Closet Makeover

We are turning a small 12x12 bedroom into my craft/office room in our home. We started the process by turning the reach-in closet into my new craft closet. To make it look less like a closet, we removed the header. This really opened up the space and made it easier for me to see and reach the upper shelves.

We purchased our corbels and Lowe's and installed them under the shelves to add a cottage look.
We added some trim work to the melamine boards to give them more of a custom look.

    Why did you use two pieces of wood for the shelving?

      It is only one piece of wood for the shelving and a decorative wood edging has been added.

    My bedroom closet is tiny. The closet size is around 30" wide by about 12" deep. I am struggling to keep this organized please help? No closets in house other than bedroom. Bedrooms are tiny. No room for racks.

      Several stores sell hanging cloth cubes - usually 4 to 6 vertical cubes.

      I use these for tee shirts, pls, and sheet pillow case sets.

    Love your craft closet. It seems to have everything that is needed for all kinds of crafting. This is something I could absolutely use as I do a lot of scrapbook projects, etc. This definitely is a 5 star rating.

    This will help me redo my closet and gave me a perfect idea what to do behind my sewing machines. I have a wall that has stuff just hanging everywhere and this is just what I needed. Thank you.
