Creative Studios and Craft Room Inspiration

Creative Studios and Craft Room InspirationCountry Living

Do you have a space in your home where you feel inspired for creative pursuits? Maybe you have an entire room, or a table, or even a shelf or cabinet of your own? I feel like much of my house is a creative canvas and an opportunity for creativity, but when it comes to actually “crafting” or “making things” I’m not necessarily inspired or inclined to start a project (or really enjoy it) unless I have the space set aside for it.

Here are some lovely ideas for winter dreaming. Whether you want to designate space to wrap presents, for art projects, to sew, paint or maybe even make cards or gifts, I hope these images will help get the creative wheels turning for an organized creative space of your own.

Enjoy! Happy Monday.

After a very long season of transitions like moving and remodeling, I’m so excited for a new year! I don’t know about you but there will be a lot of home organization going on around my house. After you’ve lived in a house for awhile you start to see how your family lives in each space and that leads to the need for some specific organization solutions.

I started the new year out trying to find a few solutions for our bedrooms and bathroom. We have small bedrooms and an old 1950s bathroom (no luxury vanity or big closets in this house!) so we have to get creative with storage. The first step to getting organized is to make sure you’ve decluttered as much as possible. If you don’t start there, you’ll end up trying to organize stuff you don’t even have room for or trying to find room for things you really should just let go of.

I really got on a roll with organizing last week, so I’m excited to show you a few of the solutions I came up with.

Over the holidays and while we had contractors working in our kitchen and lower level, I did a lot of stashing of stuff I didn’t know what to do with at the time, rather than decluttering and organizing. My nightstand turned into a holding place for clutter {hangs head in shame}.

I didn’t want to go into the new year with a clutter filled nightstand so it was my first project. I removed absolutely everything and only put back what I really needed. Once I decided what was going to go in the drawers, I realized it would be less likely to become cluttered if I tidied the interior of the drawers by corralling stuff in small containers, which I found at my local Ross Store. Since you can save 20%-60% at Ross on the same brands carried in department stores, it’s a perfect place to go to find great deals on cute things for your home organization projects.

One drawer was designated as a place for things I need morning or night.

The other drawer is designated for  jewelry.

I found a great velvety divider and a tray to keep things organized. I try to get fully dressed with simple jewelry every day, even though I work from home. If my jewelry isn’t easily accessible or in a tangled mess, I don’t wear it. So this drawer makes me happy!

I also found a tray at Ross for the top of my nightstand. I think putting things in a tray or basket makes everything look tidier and more intentional. I felt a million times better about my room once I got this organizing project done!

We had my parents staying here for a couple of weeks over the holidays. As I was making up the guest bed before they arrived I realized I really didn’t have a place in the guest room to keep extra pillows. Everyone has different bed pillow preferences, so it’s nice to offer options. Since it’s a very small room there isn’t much space leftover to have both decorative and extra bed pillows and I didn’t want them to have to toss stuff on the floor.

As I was heading out of Ross with my drawer containers I saw this darling little upholstered storage bench! I practically jumped for joy. I love the nail head trim, too. It fits perfectly at the end of the bed and is going to be ideal for guests as a little seat but also for them to select or stash extra pillows. The bench was a big score and I’m super excited about it.

I also found an over the door hook system that will be nice for guests to hang robes or towels. We have a lot of hooks in our house to help keep stuff off floors as well as to keep everything out of reach from curious pups :).

Speaking of our dogs, how adorable is this dog-bone shaped basket (also from Ross)? I couldn’t resist it for our entry. It holds dog leashes, dog sweaters, etc. It’s perfect to keep that kind of stuff away from the pups, but is convenient for storing things we need to take with us in the car.

As you can see, Jack’s super stoked about it, too.

Lastly on my recent organization spree, I found an adorable solution to the dreaded socks on the bathroom floor issue. While we have a handy dandy laundry chute immediately outside the bathroom door, some members of the family don’t seem to remember to use it, so they toss their laundry on the floor of the bathroom. :) Time will tell if the laundry hamper is used or if I’ll find the socks on the floor next to it. But either way, it’s a really cute hamper.

What organizing solutions have you implemented so far this year? 

The items I featured today (the drawer organizers, the tray, upholstered storage bench, the dog bone basket, the hooks and the hamper) were all found at my local Ross store last week! Check out all the latest items and budget-friendly organizational items at your local Ross store (find a Ross store near you at RossStores.com) as well as check out their latest styles on Facebook and Instagram.
