How can I divide a one bedroom condo to make a craft room?


I am moving to a one bedroom condo and need to get some ideas on how to bring in a lot of craft storage in about 3ft by 8ft or 10 ft. Please help.

    You might be able to use some bookshelves to separate the area and make a small craft alcove. You could use bins and decorative boxes to sort your craft supplies and place them on the shelves. You could purchase a small table to fit into your space so you have an area to work on. Under the bed storage containers are also an idea.

    Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves with bins and totes, a pegboard for tools, totes that fit under the bed, and--if you're really ambitious--a Murphy-style table!

    Hi Sheri: I like the idea of shelving, but if you can get some with doors, that will make your area look neat at all times, if you close the doors:) Or, you can put some curtain rods up and make curtains to cover the openings. Plastic milk crates are good, too, as are just plain old cardboard boxes covered with contact paper. You can usually get boxes at your local store, just go to the back and ask. Or, and this is where the sturdy boxes are, go to an auto parts store like O'reilly, Auto Zone or Pep Boys, whatever is in your area and ask them. Tell them what you are doing and they will probably have boxes for you for free. Good luck

    Hi Sheri furniture (the taller the better) will give you a room divider and a ton of storage. If budget is an issue I would look into old TV / media cabinets at thrift stores or salvage depots. Where the TV would normally go would make a great place for shelves. Good luck!
