I have been wanting a office/craft space for FOREVER and we are finally getting around to getting that done! I am already using my office but there are still some decorating details that I am working on. I’ll share as we get those completed.
The closet before was just your average, normal small closet.
It originally had a top shelf and of course a bar to hold all your clothes. We took all of that out and Marvin removed the popcorn texture from the ceiling.
Next, Marvin painted the back wall True Turquoise by Glidden to match the rest of the space.
He then measured for the built in shelves.
We bought pre-finished wood and measure out for each shelf. I encourage you to measure for each shelf because as we found out, not all the shelves were exactly the same in measurements.
After that was installed I loaded everything back in! Now, my office/craft closet may not be as *neat* as some others you may have seen but I think it’s absolutely FABULOUS!!! I love it that I can see my supplies and I can’t wait to get started on some more projects.
Top shelf I put all the office supplies.
The next shelves hold crafting supplies and gift bags/tissue paper. There are tons of awesome craft projects just waiting to happen sitting on those shelves. Notice the avocado green vintage Corning Ware bowl on the left. Love it!
And my mom was totally giving away a tub full of old Tupperware etc. so I snagged the large round container to store craft stuff in. On top of it is a wooden box my Uncle Kenny made for me. Notice the stack of Scentsy bars? If you need Scentsy my sister can hook you up! If you look close you’ll spy a roll of pennies and quarters for me to use on our next road trip so I can make more smooshed pennies.
On the bottom I have two hooks for all my tote bags.
This hook (below) *always* cracks me up. Soon I am going to make the above hook look like this…haha!!
The tote bags are in the center and on the left side is our luggage. The large tote on the left was a gift from my sister for being a part of her wedding party. I use it to add some of the patches we collect on our trips.
The tote on the right is my AFWM (AF WingMoms) tote that I take with me when I go up to MEPS to volunteer. 🙂
The white container is what we tote all of our toiletries in on our trips and then two laptop carriers.
On the right side is where my gift wrap and large gift bags are stored.
