Kathy, I love your room! I really, REALLY want an IKEA in my backyard! The closest one to me is a 5-hour drive away, dang-it.

My desk and room are constantly in a state of, to put it kindly, "re-organization." Meaning, I can never find whatever it is I want.

I'm going for peg board too. Think I will incorporate a bulletin board in the wall so I can keep track of my patterns, etc. Once I start piling things up retrieval is almost impossible. That is my big goal -- to remember where I put it. I am going to use IKEA also -- the VERY inexpensive style. I saw a video of someone's workroom done in cherry. I wish! It was beautiful and VERY neat. Looks like the best arrangement is to have a really organized storage area and them a separate work space. Does anyone have a comment about a two tiered workspace? I seem to do better standing for some things, but sit as much as possible. If I shift my workspace away from the walls, I am going to have to use pulldown electrical connections. DH is wiring his shop with some. Anything I need to know about them?

What are the "must-have" items? This will be a one-shot deal. I am determined to have the workroom finished BEFORE I move completely in. DH wants to clear the basement in the old house and do some renovation so we can list it as finished. If I don't get on the ball everything will just be piled in boxes.

I honestly tried to use the peg board but in the end ... didn't. It might have been that I didn't organize it correctly in the first place. I had on it my scissors, cm cutting shapes, a ruler or two, and other stuff, but I ended up not going with it for this new re-vamp of my room. I found small size photo type boxes worked better for me, for the items that I had on the peg board.

I even had a piece of tubing strung underneath a shelf in front of me to hang things on "s" clips so I would see what I had, but even that got annoying for me. Everything was always in my face and workspace!

I am learning (and so is DH) that my choices in organizing so far keep changing with the wind! lol

I have two organizers mounted on the wall to the right of my desk. These hold my ink pads, glitters, EP, and a few loose wood mounted stamps. I have a picture here on my blog and there is a link to the company but the site is under construction.

I have since re-organized and I have 2 desks, one for jewelry making and the other for paper crafts. Im about to add a 3rd desk for taking pictues, cutting tools and paper racks.

Right now I want as little on my desk as possible. I have lights, a few jars of ribbon and my stamp pad cleaner. In the picture you'll see I have a cabinet under my desk that holds all my cutting tools and small punches, watercolor crayons an sponges. It makes it easy to have nearby but not cluttering things.
