I also have an old dresser that I turned into my big shot die cut/cricut station and the drawers is my 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock and diecuts and cricut stuff also my chalks and watercolor pencils and pearl ex powders things I do not use as often but still do not want to give up
...my craft room is a lot of redone things and some of the scrapbook storage stuff that michaels and target carried...but I have found I like the Hodgepodge things best like my zebra table and bookcases it just feels more "crafty" to me but thats just me I am always on the lookout at garage sales etc for things to use in my craft room
That sounds great! I hope you didn't take offense in what I said about hodpodge of furniture...it wouldn't have been any less of a craft room had I stayed with that plan.
I've got all different wood tones and sizes (light, dark, orangish, and painted white). I wasn't looking forward to having to make them "work" for the space, AND do all the work to make them look nice.
Again, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, I just am excited to be able to have things built specifically for the room - using a little new, but some repurposed items, too!
I've been watching in Craigslist (actually got a table - going to reuse it somewhere else now), and garage sales too.
Have some fun in your fun craft room for me, will ya? I'm SO ready to get craftin' again!!
