DIY Craft Closet Office

As we are getting ready to pack up this house & move I realized that I had never really done a tour of my DIY craft closet office that is in the front guest bedroom. WHY? Because before a recent clean out it was quite a mess, but creativity is messy right? It’s still not a spotless area, but it’s real & this closet was a great place to store my craft supplies, blog things, & my interior design school supplies. It’s also a great desk as well. I really didn’t want to take up an entire room in the house with my craft supplies so confining it to this closet really helped control the beast inside me that wants to have craft supplies in every crevice of the house. Let’s just say it played it’s role in the house & I will be sad to see it go as we pack up this little house of ours.

I first blogged about this dresser to shelves that’s in the closet two years ago {here} when I first started this little blog. The dresser was missing drawers so we turned it into a shelving unit for storage in the closet. It also turns out that it actually works as a great desk too, bonus! On the dresser I have my sewing machine, printer, TV { I mean I’m not the only one who watches the Real Housewives while crafting right?}, & also my silhouette machine as well. The shelves hold drawers of odds and ends from burlap, fabric, adhesives, paint samples, stamps, tools, hardware, & a lot more!

Another fun thing? I used a vintage marquee light in the closet for lighting. The light has a chord going out the side of the closet to an outlet & has a dimmer on it as well so I can control the lighting in the space. Perfect solution for a closet with no light! Also on the top shelf is a tote from Initials inc, 2 storage boxes from Target, a vintage metal basket that holds magazines, & a DIY burlap bag that holds fabric scraps. The wreath was a a little craft by yours truly, the stool is from Target {I painted it with a copper spray paint}, the rug is from Ikea, & the lovely prints on the back wall are from French Press Mornings.

I’m probably going to shed a few tears when I pack up this craft closet this weekend, but guess what? The rental has a cute little closet in the office so I will be able to have all the goodies in a good home over there. What do you think of the craft closet office? Do you have a craft closet at your house? Does it look something like this? I would love to hear from you, leave a comment below, find me on Facebook, or chat with me on Instagram. xx
