What you don't know is I don't have a home office or crafting room. Before Pinterest I had designed my crafting room via a pictures folder on my computer. It was nice too; I thought of everything even started picking out the furniture pieces and everything. Then we decided to have baby #2 so my cute home office crafting room became Nori's nest. Don't get me wrong, decorating her room was a fun craft project too; but that means no more home office. We had to maximize our space and get creative.
My Babe had the perfect idea for me and my crafts and so we got to work. We decided to customize an Ikea wall unit we have in our living room that was sitting empty. Here is what the nicely organized wall unit had become.
I forgot to snap a picture before I started moving stuff around; here is a picture in the midst of some early movement.
Here is my wall unit space.
All of these things were once inside this wall unit, in no particular order
Here is my new space fully cleaned and organized. YIPPIE!
My next project is my vision board; I will include that on the inside of the doors.
I have two pull out drawers now, I always had the one on the left for my Cricut.Now the one on the right is my work space for my shoes.
I love it! I'm working on a From Mi To You order and watchingOne of my favorite movies ever. Now my Babe gets his desk back.
My daughter had to get in the new set up and decided to help me design a pair of shoes. For those of you that know Nori know that this was NOT optional.
It looks really nice when the lights are on.
This is what the wall unit looks like when you enter my home.
Then when you open it up you see all of this. One is for my son, we keep all of his school needs in those three pull out drawers and shelf. The bottom shelf is the home of his board games and such. The far right is office like set up.
My unit consists of:
2 short shelves 4 additional regular shelves
2 slide out drawers with a flat surface
1 pull out drawer with multiple sections
I have clear sorting boxes to hold my sorted embellishments.
The pink w/polka dot boxes I got from Michael's years ago.
You can see the boy version of those same boxes on the far right.
I love my space, I'm going to add in light, my vision board, and I need a dope chair. I can't wait to go looking.
