The Studio, V3.0

PHOTOS * PHOTOS * PHOTOS

Whenever I can, I've left links to products and storage solutions I've used in my room. Many I've had for some time, so they may no longer be available, but you might be able to find something similar when exploring the links. Hopefully, they'll be helpful.

First things first. Before I could finish moving all the pieces to where I wanted them, I had to remove one of the shelves hubs put up for me in the last redo. Not to worry. I didn't lose any space by doing this, I just needed instead to make room on top of the cubby wall. You'll see what I mean. Then I had to pull enough stuff out of the cubbies and drawers and tops to move everything around. Not a quick job. And I did it all on my own - there was no help from hubs this time around! All me, baby. Oh my goodness. What a mess. I'm glad my room isn't any bigger at this point.

All of my cube units are by Better Homes and Gardens for Walmart. I put them all together myself, including my desk, which is also from Walmart but not a Better Homes piece. The white cubes are Michael's.



So... let's take the virtual tour!!! 

This is the view as you first enter the room. Worktop and die cutting station. My thrift store spice racks hold distress sprays, stains, and embossing powders. Those red dollar store containers hold embossing powders I use the most - white, clear, silver, gold, etc. along with my anti-static bag and stamp cleaning chamois. Each has a little spoon attached to the inside of the lid and it's super handy. This was a tip from the ever organized Jennifer McGuire


On the left is the card base organizer my hubs made for me after I saw the one by Organize More. I'm loving it! The metal dish is actually magnetic. I got that at Harbor Freight for keeping dies in while I work. Those teeny ones can get away from you from time to time and this helps keep them all in one place until you finish your project. Highly recommend! 

Far right is my pink rolling cart. I have a turquoise one as well from IKEA, but this one I got at Michael's. I keep tools, punches, acrylic blocks in here. Scissors, rulers, and other tools hang from S hooks so they're always handy but not laying around. Bottom rack holds my laminating machine. 

You'll see my tiered spinner on the right. Handy for things I use on every project - tape runner, glue, glossy accents, etc. Next to my BigShot below is a tiered organizer by Better Homes. I'm not sure if they still have them, I wasn't able to find a link. Anyway, I keep rolls of adhesive, foam tape, and post it tape in here. I made the tiered organizer the last time I did a makeover. 


Here's how I did it. Started with a trip to the thrift store where I found these ancient pie pans. Then the dollar store for these candle sticks . Then I remembered this remote control organizer we never use and took the wheelie-lazy Susan thing off the bottom of it. I got the lazy Susan idea from Regina Easter's super pretty yellow version, seen in her craft space, here.


I did a quick once over everything with sand paper, just to be sure the paint would adhere. Now it's time to paint - Krylon spray paint, Blue Ocean Breeze is the color on the can but I call it Tiffany Blue because I can and it's my room, so. ;) 




Thrift store spice racks -- as you can see in the pics above, I now have more of these since the first redo. They are the perfect storage solution for small bottles and jars. Also, the blue 'create' was a find from Joann's, if I remember right. I didn't even have to paint it!



Not the best pic, but here's my closet chalkboard door, (left of the worktop) which I painted black when I did the first makeover five years ago. I was tired of the old chalkboard so I decided it needed to be repainted, but what color? Black was just too boring in my colorful room. Then I discovered I could get chalk paint mixed in any color I wanted- I HAD to have it! Valspar chalkboard paint in ANY COLOR you choose. Dude. Tiffany blue chalkboard paint! Who knew!? 

Next up, to the right of the worktop is my desk. I can't find a link to it anymore, and I don't know who makes it but it was also a Walmart.com purchase. My pink chair - an awesome Big Lots find for under $20. Oh yeah, take my money! 


The copic cubbies on the hutch are by Organize More - LOVE them. The drawer cube unit to the right is from Michael's. The pen holder above the copic colors is a removable piece from that Michael's storage cube.

To the right of my desk is the cubby wall and my prized file cabinet. I got that at the thrift store for FIVE DOLLARS!!! It has been painted twice now for my craft room makeovers and I looooove that thing. It holds SO MUCH STUFF. On the top is another Michael's storage cube. Unfortunately, I didn't have correct measurements when I ordered them as I was hoping they'd fit inside the Better Homes cube units. They do not. 

The cubby wall. Arranging my pieces on end this way has really de-cluttered the room and given it a bigger feel. I like it. Plus, I need things to be where I can see them or they are forgotten. So having these open cubes is great for me. 


The colored 12x12 paper holders are the same ones I made in 2012 from postal mailing boxes. They've held up well!! and I think I might repaint them (or make new ones?) but I can't decide on white, pink, or Tiffany blue....what do you think? If you'd like to make some of these yourself, here's a link to the original blog post with diagram and instructions



There were two shelves up here, but I removed one to have more space on top of the cubby wall. I left one shelf for pretties that I don't use often. Above that is my crafting motto - Inspire. This was a fun metal piece hubby got for me at Joann's a long time ago. It's about 3 feet long!


The wood create word is a gift from my sweet grand-niece, Brielle. (It was hot pink and I painted it white.) Create is very important to me and she knows this as well by my one and only tattoo. :) (it's not as big as it looks, it's just close up. LOL)



Couple more fun Hobby Lobby finds - this basket unit used to hold washi tape until my collection got out of hand. LOL

I keep lots of small items in this unit like wobbles, binder rings, chalk, staples, batteries, label tape, hot glue sticks, etc. Oh, and the giant metal S is also from Hobby Lobby. It can stand as I have it or hang on the wall. 

One more little goody my hubs made for me is this mini ink cube organizer. It fits in a drawer (but I don't have any drawers LOL) and is a copy of those from Organize More. He made two of them to my measurements so they fit in my cubby. They're on top of the metal Tim Holtz tins that hold my distress and oxide inks.

  4. Love your organization, Shar! I'm like you...I like to have most things in "dust proof" storage since I do so much paper distressing (i.e., dust making!). Unlike you, though, I have only the "top layer" of my room finished - upper shelves and wall cabinets dh built that are custom 18" deep. I still have the "bottom layer" of new flooring and rearranged work surfaces left ahead of me. Your tour has really given me some new ideas for that part! Hugs!
