Studioffice: Craft Room Tour

This Post May Contain Affiliate Links. Please Read my Disclosure Policy.

Angie over at The Country Chic Cottage is hosting craft room tours this week.   Mine is on the tour today along with many others.

Ihave posted about my craft room before but realized I don’t have a full tour of it – I have a lot of posts scattered throughout my blog, but not one that shows the space in a stand alone post since I made all the updates.

I dubbed the room my studioffice because the room has two functions. I do all of my work in the room – creative and business.


This is the office side.


 This is the creative studio side.


On the house plans it was labeled “Formal Living Room”. I took it over the day we moved in 20 years ago and have been tweaking it ever since.


Lots of hand-me-downs and curbside finds transformed to help me get a day’s work done.

DIY Rolling Door Tutorial for Bifold doors

When it gets messy – which is 99% of the time – I can close the Rolling bi-fold doors.

The room has evolved a lot.

If you would like to see how it looked when I first started blogging you can find the posts about how I made a partner’s desk,  the work table,  vintage file cabinet,  Desk Makeover,  and desk drawer organizers.

Desk organizing ideas



I recently added two IKEA Antonius wire drawer units on either side of my work table.  They hold the supplies I use most often and that don’t fit into my crafts cabinet.



I found number cards in the wedding aisle at Michaels. I tied them on the each drawer with ribbon to add a little bit of style to the drawers.


I cut plywood to size to create a table top for each of the IKEA drawer units.


This is not the ideal way to store craft paint, but I make sure the caps are on tight. I like that I can see every color at a glance. I eventually would like to have them lined up on the wall on narrow shelfs.


I store glitter and all my DIY chalk paint supplies in the other drawers.


My newest addition – cardboard box scrapbook paper organizers


To see how I organize the rest of my craft supplies you can take the tour of My Crafts Cabinet Up Close and Personal
