Attic Craft Room The Victorian House

I Have a Few Craft Supplies

We have plans to spend time with friends and go to a parade for the Fourth, but I’ll also be working around the house. I’m in cleaning and organizing mode, tackling the former kitchen on the third floor. We’ve been using it as a craft room, but it’s not exactly cute or inspiring to be in there right now. One big step toward improving it will be in clearing off the overloaded shelves.

Overloaded Shelves with Craft Supplies

These drawers are gloriously empty, while the shelves are packed. Time to remedy that this weekend.

Drawers Waiting to be Utlized

We also have two more pieces in the garage (from the studio / craft room in the old house) that can be brought up if we need either of them. The bathroom on the third floor is just about finished, and now I want to bring some order to the rest of the space. Hooray for keeping busy, and hooray for clearing out some of the crap we’ve accumulated!

    Organizing and cleaning out my extensive collection of crafting supplies is on my weekend to-do list, too. How did I accumulate so much stuff? It’s mind-boggling and all the junk totally hinders creativity.

    Good luck with your project!

    THANK YOU for showing that clutter can happen to even someone like you! My own “studio” is currently under several layers of material — from clearing out the debris teaching this past year, half-finished crafting, and needing to sort through boxes from our move a couple years ago. I made progress today…

    I also need to organize my things. My crafting room is also the bedroom my granddaughter uses when she and my grandson sleep over. I don’t even know where to begin! Please post your “after” pics to provide more inspiration and ideas for those of us that need it! Best wishes to you on your adventure and have a wonderful weekend!

      They were from IKEA’s Värde line, now discontinued.

    Now is the time to say I love everything you do. That old craft room of yours was divine. Don’t think I could’ve ever left , so I am anxious to see the new one.
