EASY ORGANIZING and DECORATING IDEAS


Lately I have been obsessed with decorating ideas with organization as the theme. Because I'm in the middle of a major move and still trying to keep things organized. I am always on the look-out for cute ways to decorate my craft room (and keep it practical at the same time). So these are just a collection of ideas that I have found for my own personal reference. I am a visual person, so I want to keep a record of cute ways to organize (on a budget) as I am gathering ideas to decorate my craft room. But I wanted to share my findings with you. I am sure that most crafters would love to have a "dream craft room." And many of us don't have the money or the know-how to do it without breaking the bank. I am not the best at decorating and I am a savvy shopper. But I also have a "dream craft room" look that I would like to achieve. Because I spend a lot of time in my craft room, so I might as well make it nice so that I can enjoy my creative time even more.

MIX AND MATCH FURNITURE.
Make use of your empty wall space by using peg boards to hang your tools and items. I have a lot of mix and match furniture and shelving. You can mix and match your furniture and make it work by keeping your work station organized. Use what you have. You don't have to go out and buy expensive furniture from Pottery Barn or other expensive furniture stores if you want a cute and practical craft room. If the mix and match of furniture bothers you, tie it all together by giving your furniture a cohesive shade of paint.

INSTEAD OF HANGING PICTURES ON THE WALL, MAKE IT A PRACTICAL SPACE BY HANGING UP MAGNETIC WHITE BOARDS AND CORK BOARDS INSTEAD!
Artful, Stylish, and Practical! You can get these at Walmart and Target for around $10 per board.

THIS CHAIR LOOKS COOL AND PRACTICAL
but it looks expensive. I would love to have one of these in my library room if I have the money. I have a thing for very quirky and unique furniture designs. And this chair is definitely one of them.

MAKE USE OF SPACE ON A DOOR!
Use the 3M tape that you can take off without hurting the surface or wall. Don't drill holes or hammer nails through your doors because if you mess up, a door can be pretty pricey to replace. The cheapest door that I have seen at the hardware store is over $100. So if you are like me (likes to change and redecorate often), please use the non-commitment tape and NEVER use nails!

PERFECT COLOR COORDINATION.
A little splash of color can make everything all tie together. This is a design trick to make your decorating project look expensive but won't put a hole in your pocket.

  5. Guess I need a room first that doesn't double as the dining room, bedroom or guest bedroom, office.

    The ideas are great and pretty.

    I'm putting off some organizing for a little bit - my beads are fairly organized and I feel the need to bead first.

  6. These are all such good ideas. (and great photo selections) I really like the idea of the magnetic white boards and cork boards. I seem to always misplace small notes and pinning them to a cork board would be perfect. And my daily and weekly "To Do" lists would serve me much better if they were written on a designated white board. Thanks for the inspiring post!

  8. Thank you for the tips! I have been trying to get my stuff organised and am gonna use some of your tips here.
    I am a sucker for aqua blues and have been gazing at the last set of pictures. How I wish I could have a room like that all for myself. Maybe next year...when I rake in more moolah!

  9. Thank you everyone for your comments :) And for your support of my blog!

    **Reshma, you don't have to spend a bunch of money to get the blue room that you like. If you look at the picture, the blue painted wall made the entire room...so your cost is really just paint! A gallon of paint at Lowes or Home Depot is only about $26.
