Workspace of the Week: Guest room turned craft room

This week’s Workspace of the Week is All Those Detail’s perfectly detailed craft room:

This storage closet in a craft room is beautiful. Scrapbooks and photo albums are all on the top shelf, crafting materials are in clear tubs (so the user can easily see what is inside without having to open the boxes), and even the craft books have a dedicated shelf for storage. By simply adding a shelving unit beneath the clothing rod, the closet went from nearly useless storage for a craft room into perfect storage for a craft room.

One of my favorite aspects of this office is the pin collection displayed to the right of the closet doors. I don’t know if they’re District pins for a community service organization or Disney collector pins or what exact type of pins they are, but the hanging strip of them is brilliant. They’re decorating a wall that otherwise wouldn’t be used for anything, and they’re displaying what is a valued item (instead of having it stuffed in a drawer). If you wear brooches or tie pins, this also would be a great way to store them.

The craft area in the room is nicely done, too. All the supplies are well contained, there is a fun apple green accent color running through the space, and the work table is nice and big to use for lots of different projects. Thank you, All Those Details, for sharing your workspace with us.

    Wow, that seriously makes my heart happy. I wish I could get my guest room to look like that.

    You know what I love in this room? The artist mannequin in the 2nd photo is posed in an arabesque, not just a boring “sketch the person” pose!!! It’s great! Happy thoughts!

    I like the pins too! I can’t tell how they did it. what type of strap they used? Anyone have ideas or suggestions?

    I like the pin collection on the hanging strips, too. I have no idea how it was done but would like to share how I display my pins. I bought a bulletin board covered with a woven grass cloth. I just poke the pin in the cork board. I store the back in a small wooden box. I collect pins when I travel. They are small and usually inexpensive.

    pretty, though I can’t see unclutter and scrap-booking on the same page. scrap-booking gives me hives just by looking at the material you can buy (and resulting amount of money spend)not to mention the results..

    That looks so neat and pretty. Love flat files. Gotta get some. My hubbie has lots of paper clutter that he says he can’t throw out. Seems like they’d be the way to go!

    Hey this is my room! For the record, it NEVER looks this nice except for these pictures.

    I’ve collected lapel pins over all of my travels. They’re relatively cheap and also small and lightweight. I just tacked a sturdy ribbon to the wall and pinned the pins through it. Simple and easy! Thanks everyone for your nice comments!

    In the comments on flikr, she(?) says the pins are on a sturdy ribbon. I love that there is wall space left open. It’s so easy to get carried away with putting up shelves and then no place for art or inspiration pieces.

    I need to re-pose my manequin.
