warning: very scary craftroom!

About this design:

Hi everybody! Sorry I have been gone so long, I have popped on the site occasionally to look at designs. I have been redoing my craft room, and its taking a lot longer than I thought it would. I am redoing the cabinets (painting) flooring and painting walls & shelves. I am doing this on a very, very small budget and using most of what I have just making it better. I hope to have photos of it done soon. I was wondering if anyone would share hints, ideas and/or photos of their spaces on jewelry work spaces because I’m stumped. My ”creative” ideas all seemed to go into how to stretch those few dollars to get it done and be cute :) You'll have to excuse the mess in the photo, it is the "before" picture middle of moving everything out

    Did you sneek in my craft room and take a picture. lol. I’m curious to see the comments about organizing. I could really use some help myself.

    I am so with you girls! My craft/office/sewing room looks like a tornado went thru it. I need help also.

    If this is the ‘before’ picture, I can’t wait to see the ‘after’ picture. I have all my beads in a closet and I work at a fold-up mini table. Sure could use some ideas as well.

    I have all of my beads in small parts cabinets according to colour. I have a smaller version for pendants and an even smaller one for crystal.
    I keep all of my findings in ziplocks in covered baskets that are stackable and labelled.

    I desperately am in need of work space. I can’t leave anything out because there are three kittens in the house.

    This is clean, compared to mine! I could spend days in mine just re-organizing. I’m come to the conclusion that mine is just *creative chaos*. :)

    Ha ha “creative chaos”! I love it, I’ll have to borrow that to explain to my husband the ongoing mess in the basement these days with the redo & all! Thanks everyone for your comments and encouragement. I am almost done with the painting, but the lastest snow (only an inch and half) has slowed me down a bit, then on to the floor then finally finishing touches :)

    I posted my “bead mess” before…I should have posted an after, because it looked great! “Looked” as in past-tense…it is messy again since I had a show last weekend. I use the wire-cubes you can get a Wally-world to stack my bead boxes in. They fit under my craft desk and hold a lot.

    Love the idea of the wire cubes! Right now I have everything in fishing tackle boxes, that hold the plastic divided containers, which is easy for transport up stairing to bead front of the tv but hard to see what I have. As soon as I get out of “home improvement” prison then do my time in “beaders prison” I will get some :) I have already gone “slightly” over my very small budget oops ;)
