About a month ago, my husband and I decided that it was time to organize my craft room. We had previously made a desk for it, but I do a lot of projects and I really needed a place to store my craft supplies and props in. Yes, bloggers are weird and we all keep props around for taking photos of our projects and food! Anyway, I went to IKEA and I got a few more things to fix this home office up. I gave it a ton more storage and made it look so pretty with a very small budget.
THE PERFECT IKEA DESK FOR A CRAFT ROOM
I have another post explaining how to make this IKEA hack desk, right here. It cost under $60 to make and I absolutely love it. It’s big enough to set up my Cricut, use my computer, and our printer, and so on.
IKEA CRAFT ROOM STORAGE
I got this bookshelf at IKEA for $70. It’s called the IKEA KALLAX and it’s perfect to store my craft supplies, fabric, paper, Iron-On and so on!
Having a space that I can store my Cricut and its accessories, my photography stuff, and my other craft supplies is essential. I don’t need a ton of space, I actually try to keep my craft supply stash to a minimum (it’s hard) but there are things that I do need to keep around in order to do all of my crafts and make t-shirts with my Cricut! Also, since my space isn’t super big I’m not hoarding as much stuff that I won’t use.
STORAGE BOXES FOR A CRAFT ROOM
I also got these white storage boxes from IKEA to organize the craft supplies in. They are big enough to hold 12×12 scrapbook paper or rolls of vinyl and Iron-On which is why I love them so much. They fit perfectly in the KALLAX bookshelf.
We hung a 4′ x 4′ pegboard on the wall to organize my smaller supplies and to just display pretty things! I can’t tell you how much I love having my scissors in full view at all times. It is life-changing! I did an entire post with the details, right here.
Why is there something so satisfying about displaying paint on shelves? I seriously love this. I hand-picked the colors just to decorate this shelf with…
STORAGE FOR SMALL CRAFT SUPPLIES
I have this card catalog shelf that was a hand-me-down from my husband’s Aunt. It is absolutely perfect for organizing and storing small craft supplies – like thread, buttons, safety pins, glue sticks, and so on. I love this thing, and I will forever. I painted it pink, and there was controversy! I still love it and stand by my decision.

What? You don’t spray paint your scissor handles to match the rest of your decor?
Hi-could you please share the name or link for the 12 x 12 boxes from ikea that you use in your shelf?
Thanks so much!
Hi, I’m sorry I don’t know the name of the boxes. I bought them in 2013 so they may or may not still have those boxes at IKEA. I hope you find some like that if that is what you’re looking for. More recently I bought some 12×12 plastic boxes for my under the stairs closet storage and I like them even better for storing paper because they are clear and less deep so I don’t have to dig to find what I want. The link to those storage containers is in this post: https://prettyprovidence.com/craft-storage-closet/
Hi- your craft room is beautiful! Could you please share the name or a link for the white storage boxes from IKEA that hold the 12×12 scrapbook paper and fit on your shelf? Thanks so much!
Great room. I love the brightness in there. May I ask where you got the rolling cart that is next to your desk? Looks like something I could really use.
Oh I’m glad you like it! I found it at IKEA!
I am in love with your card catalog. Headed to see how you made it & hoping it would is $$ feasible and not TOO advanced in the skills dept. It turned out awesome, as did everything in your space. And yes, I will spray paint about anything to make it aesthetically pleasing (in other words, they HAVE TO BELONG ON MY PALETTE!) LOL
