I have finally accepted the fact that I will probably never have an entire room devoted to creating, but that is ok because what I do have are two large closets in the master. As I really only need one, I decided to make the second closet into a craft closet. There are all sorts of ideas on Pinterest & I knew I wanted to fit as much as possible in the closet, while still having a little desk area to work on cards & scrapbooking. I was a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for 4 years & still attend classes so I wanted to have everything within reach. Here is the finished project:
I found this beautiful contact paper at the Dollar Tree & added it to the back of the desk area. I used a board from an old shelf as the “desk”. I found the little stool in my garage & it fits perfectly inside so I can close the doors.

In this area on the left side I hung my stamp pads in an old cassette holder that I purchased from ebay for $15!. I keep my paper cutter out & all my paint pens.
I hung peg board on the right side to hold all my ribbons, scissors, etc. This frees up a lot of space while also keeping everything in view.
I have all my clear stamps on a shelf & the wood stamps I put in an old drawer that I lined in Stampin’ Up! fabric under the desk (see below pic). The little blue drawers were from an old bureau that I painted with chalk paint. They hold acrylics, ink refills, etc. I have a bin with fabric as well as finished cards in the basket.
My 12×12 paper fits in this shelf that I purchased from Michael’s. All my punches are in the drawer of my hope chest right next to my closet.
My favorite, most used tool is the Big Shot which sits front & center with all my dies next to it. Just because I thought it was fun & I had it from my old room, I hung this little chandelier because it makes me smile everytime I open the doors! Happy crafting!
