What else did I need to get my craft room organized? This table from Ikea of course. I purchased this a few years ago and believe it or not, they still have it at the store, but it costs less than it did when I got it! I'm not too disappointed about it because I have gotten a lot of use out of it and am still using it now. I must show you the table without all of my stuff on it though, because you can hardly see the top of it otherwise. I love this table because it is big, very sturdy and there are panels in the middle that can be removed to make it smaller......something I don't think I'll need to do anytime soon, but useful if ever necessary. I put my Cricut Expressions Machine right in the middle of it and used to keep the cartridges on the table as well, but as you'll see below, I have a new spot for those now. For some reason when I use my Cricut, I end up with paper everywhere and the table gets covered which is why it's much better that I don't keep things on there that can be lost amongst the paper piles.
I also got this Desktop Carousel a few months ago. I was at a local scrapbooking shop and they had one on each of the tables in their lovely crop area. I thought it would help me get organized so I got one and it's great for storing my scissors, markers, adhesives and other handy tools.
This is what I put in them so far:
4. Cricut Cartridges
5. Miscellaneous Items
6. Paper Packs
7. Little Spools of Pretty Ribbon
8. More Cricut Cartridges (ones that haven't been opened yet!)
9. Loose Scrapbook Paper
10. Cardstock Paper Pads
I think I still need to get some pretty baskets to put on top of these shelves to organize some miscellaneous items that I have floating around.
That's it for now. Be sure to check back for part 3 of this post as I will be doing a crafty storage giveaway!
