Designing a Small Space Custom Craft Closet

For years, I've assembled several pieces of furniture to make the perfect scrapbook and craft studio. That worked well in an apartment for one and that worked ok in an apartment for two. Space is much more limited with a baby and my craft furniture footprint took up too much room. Safety is also a constant concern. After much research and countless hours pinning dream studios, I finally invested in a built-in custom craft closet to house my studio.

I essentially designed a compact and efficient craft headquarter that would allow for all of my crafting tools and materials be stored in a 6 feet x 3 feet footprint hidden behind doors. A reasonable dining-table size footprint in a small apartment, designed with pull out drawers and work surfaces. The beauty is that everything can be easily tucked back in and out of sight when not in use. More importantly, little fingers won't be tempted! :)

More about the design process later this month!

I would be remiss if I didn't express my love for my nifty Scrapbox Workbox. It's been the home for all my crafting goodies for 4 good years.

What is your dream craft studio, maker space, or scrapbooking nook?
