Here is a before picture. It's a really small room, making it perfect for a craft room or office.
Here it is in progress about a year ago.Boxes everywhere! It took me awhile to unpack and organize. Sometimes I like procrastinating. ;)
The bookshelf is no longer in the room. It's an old Ikea Billy Bookcase from like 15 years ago that I horribly painted this yellow color. The paint color is decent, but not my paint job. Its home is now in the garage.
And here it is, as it looks today.
The paint color is Soft Sage by Glidden. Ikea Expedit shelving unit (love, love, love the Exedit!). The pink fabric boxes are also from Ikea, as well as the shorter black & white fabric boxes with the black handles, and the red & white magazine holders.
I labeled the fabric boxes with these tags so I know what's in them.
They are so roomy and can hold so much. Because they are so roomy, I even have organized them inside by using smaller boxes, baskets, and bins.
The metal cart is a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law (you can also see it in the above picture on the right). It's great for storing scrapbooking papers.
This is a lamp I had in my room as a child. I'm so glad my mom kept it for me.
Look at how much stuff it holds! I need to do a bit of reorganizing, but the great thing about this cabinet, is I can just shut the doors and the room is instantly transformed into a tidy space. It also holds my printer which is on a shelf that slides out for easier access.
My one requirement for the armoire was a pull-out tray. I wanted to be able to leave projects "as is" and still have a work space above it.
Are you ready to see inside the world's smallest closet?
