My crafting area (dining area of my not so formal living room) is also a hodge podge. I picked up a small 3 foot table from a lss that went out of business (i believe it is from IKEA). It's smaller than the desk I had before but fits my space nicely with a standard 2 drawer file cabinet on the left for my 8 1/2 x 11 CS and the right holds 2 cheapy nightstands stacked together for storing office supplies. My laptop and desktop caddy fit on the "desk". Above it I have a large bulletin board for a calendar and some of my art and to the left of that 2 Bygel rails with my whaletail punches. To the right above the nightstand shelving is an old cassette tape rack that holds my inkpads. Behind me is a 6 foot folding table that I use for my worksurface. It's not ideal but sturdy enough for stamping and it can be moved when I want my room to look less cluttered. Lastly on the wall under my staircase is a set of old kitchen cabinets that I found in the garage of a house we bought as a rental property. They are nicer than my actual kitchen cabinets the have 2 large deep drawers on the left and pull out shelves on the right. there is a narrow drawer on the top of both units and they are topped with a solid piece of wood. I have stair stepped my white target cubes on top of it to hold albums and embellies but my DH hates how it looks. I will take that set of cabinets wherever I go. The pull out shelves are perfect for my big shot to hide in without getting bumped off a counter and I hope to repurpose the deep drawers in it for stamp storage as they are in baskets in a smaller bookcase under the worktable. Most importantly, and I think most of you will agree, your crafting space is ALWAYS a work in progress and as long as you enjoy creating in it that's all you can hope for. Enjoy your special space.
