The Perfect Craft and Workroom
Your Perfect Craft Room
Craft Room: Clean and Organize
It is easy to arrange and organize your craft room but it will take some thought and time. The wonderful results for a well organized room will inspire you to dig in to your supplies and start creating something wonderful. Walk around the room and make a list of every thing you want to get rid of. Start loading boxes with all of the unnecessary items, and either give away to charity, friends or throw away. It is best to be in the right mood to attack this project with enthusiasm.
Empty the Room
Take everything that is not mobile or a piece of furniture and remove it from the room. After you have done this, you should have an almost empty room. This will give you perspective of how your room looks empty and how you want it to look after you have organized your craft stuff. If this room is where you do many different things you will have to be super organized and find a space for everything. Getting rid of clutter is always very satisfying, and you will be amazed at how much stuff you have in the room that you never use.
Clean the room thoroughly
Clean The Room Thoroughly
Before you start organizing your stuff give the room a thorough cleaning. Mop the floors or vacuum the carpet. Wash all the shelves, cabinets and even the walls. Clean the windows and sills and soon you will have a sparkling clean space. Decide if you need more cabinets, shelves or table space for all your crafts and activities.
Organize your Paints
Organize Your Stuff
Go through old folders and stacks of paper and make new brightly colored folders to organize all your papers of importance. Mark the folders with bright color marking pens. Go through fabric swatches if you are a seamstress and organize them according to size and colors. Re-arrange art supplies if you paint and have them readily available when you have a short period of time to paint. Throw out old brushes and old tubes of paint. Or better yet give them away to a beginning artist.
Containers for Odds and Ends
Old coffee cans-especially small ones are great for storing brushes, pencils, pens and other office items. Small jars are suitable for pins, paperclips, stamps, nails etc. Paint old boxes to give some color to the room and use for storing paper, folders, and even books. This method of using boxes works very well, especially if you don't have a lot of shelves in the room. Be sure to mark each container with the contents.
After seeing how to arrange and organize your craft room, you will want to jump in and start crafting. A huge benefit of an organized and clean workroom is that it inspires you to spend more time there and do what you love. When the workroom is disorganized and you can't find anything, you will often just not indulge in one of your craft or work passions. Whether your passion is writing, crafting, painting or sewing this is your get away from reality for a period of time, and where dreams are made.
