I think I’ve seen this room before – in a dream. My crafting supplies are in 3 rooms, 2 closets and the basement. It makes every project a treasure hunt, but definitely not efficient. I’d move into Regina Easter’s craft room right now.
Let’s start in the center, with her workspace – the STENSTORP kitchen island. She’s making great use of the open shelving for some of her cutting aids and to keep it clear for use. Notice the BAROMETER table lamp, lending task lighting for even the most delicate project, and the caddy keeping her tools contained but close at hand.
The rest of the room screams storage, storage, storage! The EXPEDIT unit in the back holds a plethora of papers, notions and other supplies. KASSETT magazine files and boxes, as well as EXPEDIT drawers and cabinet doors keep most out of sight – and keep your eyes from being overwhelmed. (The choice of all white furnishings helps with this as well, especially in such a creative space.) The built-in cabinetry with additional work space is a great solution for separating your “digital” and “analog” creating spaces.
I have to call out this creative use of our RIBBA picture ledges. Though their intended use is to hold framed photos and completed artwork – paired with our RAJTAN spice jars this is a work of art in itself. It’s organized, colorful and Regina never needs to wonder where her brads or buttons are.
Here’s another great use of EXPEDIT for paper storage (and a peek of great stamp storage to the left.) Also a re-appearance of the RIBBA picture ledges – this time to house ribbons and thread in Regina’s sewing area.
