Craft Room {Sweet Bambinos}

Happy Friday fellow crafters! If you live in my neck of the woods then you might be digging out of a fresh pile of that white stuff we’ve been seeing all winter. I’m so ready for spring! So in the mean time I’ve been cleaning and organizing my craft room. I’m really trying to declutter and get rid of those items that have just been hanging around too long. You know, those “I could do this with that” items. It’s hard to let go of some of these items but it actually feels good to not be weighed down by them. Moving on my post for you today is a quick tour of a beautifully organized craft room by Andrea on her blog Sweet Bambinos.

She posted her newly organized craft room and I was drawn by the pops of color from all the crisp white.

She uses a combination of Martha Stewart tables and Ikea bookshelves and drawer units to organize all her supplies.

Here is the link to her original post sharing her room HERE and she has an updated post revealing what’s in her drawers and how they are organized HERE.

have a crafty weekend!


Craft Room: the Crafted Sparrow

Hi Everyone! It’s Cicily with a beautiful craft room to show you today. I came across Becca’s trendy room, the Crafted Sparrow, on Pinterest.

She turned her formal living room into her very own crafty space.


Becca painted her dark furniture black for a uniform look and her latest pride and joy is her Chalky Finish white craft table that takes center stage in her room.

Her fabrics are housed in these bookshelves, with her favorites on display in the wire baskets.


Like most of us, Becca admits to a wrapping paper addiction. I love her simple solution, this basic linen hamper.


Check out Becca’s complete craft room tour on the Crafted Sparrow blog here! Tell Becca CSI sent you.


I’m sure you will love her space as much as I did!



All About the Furniture: Craft Tables

Hello crafty friends, it’s Cicily with a post about furniture. What’s a craft space without a table? probably not a craft space! I recently found this great site Ikea Hackers! It’s all about converting Ikea finds to fit your needs and how people have customized Ikea items. Oh boy!

So I found some great craft tables I wanted to share!


I love this standing-height work surface made out of kitchen cabinets! Check out the feet addition and the pretty fabric covered top!

I love this cutting table made using the Ikea Expedit bookcases and plywood. In addition to great shelving it has wheels!

This table definitely caught my attention. It’s put together using 12 side tables! I love all the storage underneath.


I’d love to hear or see your craft table!




A Major Reveal {Nicole Samuels}

I can’t help but show you this major reveal from Nicole Samuels.  She brilliantly refinished an old dresser so that it could be used for a scrap table.  I’m loving it.  And the storage space it created is amazing.
