Crafty Cubby

My husband and I live in a one bedroom apartment. Our serious lack of space continues to press us for creativity to live within such a small place. Tired of tripping over my sewing machine and of having fabric scraps, yarn, and books draped all over the house, I was struck with and idea of shear genius. The little closet next to the kitchen didn't have to be a closet at all! If I just removed the stuff we didn't use, maybe take off the doors, hang some storage, some Christmas lights, put in the little desk I refinished 3 years ago and viola! It became a ... Crafty Cubby!


Oh, how I love my Crafty Cubby. I think my projects have actually improved since I made it.



To those of you with a lack of space, but still have a drive for a hobby let this idea inspire you.

When hubby and I finally get to work on our laundry room, we will put in many closet organizers and shelves, and the storage possibilities will be wonderful. Eventually my crafts will go in there.

It's easy to live in a small place, but very difficult to live in any place that doesn't have a lot of storage.

I have finally moved into a home with loads of space/storage. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Now, to get myself a sewing table...a much-longed for purchase, let me assure you!

It is a lovely space you have carved out for yourself. Maybe look into getting some LED lights--they will last a long time, emit less heat, and are usually on sale after Christmas...

GREAT CUBBY! It really looks organized for it being such a small space. Thanks for the motivation.

I know you told me about your craft closet but I had no idea what it entailed! I'm super impressed - how organized and it's inviting enough that even I would be inspired to get crafy! :o)
