it was SO. MUCH. FUN!
i removed the closet doors because i plan to hang a pretty curtain instead.
the dresser is from K's room -- i replaced it with an expedit bookcase. it works out much better this way because the dresser has TONS more storage for craft supplies than the bookcase. AND we laid the expedit, now in K's room, horizontally so he can now reach all of his toys.
i stored rolls of gift wrap to the side of the dresser.
old photos and paper mementos are sealed in a couple of the container store's our men's shoe boxes. clothespins and buttons look cute displayed in mason jars.
i think i might need a third men's shoe box soon...
and probably another button jar as well!
various pots and recycled jars and bottles are kept in four translucent stackable bins. i'm not sure about them yet. they're very sturdy...but i think i'd be better off with opaque storage since i have such an assortment of old jars, tins, glasses, etc. it looks very cluttered to me.
various supplies are organized in the container store's regular-sized our shoe boxes:
each bin is labelled...
four large stacking bins hold picture frames, gift bags and tissue paper, and holiday decorations.
...and i put some random sewing supplies on top. i'm sure they'll find a new home once the room is complete.
what could possibly be left to be stored inside the dresser?
for someone with only mediocre sewing skills, i feel my collection is a little excessive...but sometimes, i just can't help getting a yard or two when i see a pretty fabric. i'm stockpiling for when my skills improve.
...and that's my crafty closet!
stay tuned for the rest of the room...
