I got some questions on the part of my laundry room I'm calling my craft closet.
I'm going to try to answer them here and show you more detail on how I organized this area.
Very embarrassing "before" photo. Super messy and disorganized.
Step 1: Store large pots and urns on the top shelf.
Add baskets to hide away craft supplies. (crafts supplies are still a mess at this point.)
I found these cute little containers at Target. They are inside the baskets to help keep my supplies organized. To be honest I'm still working on getting this just the way I want it so I can find things easily.
I keep board games on the bottom shelves and a garbage can on the floor (not shown).
The games were not cute so I decided to make a skirt out of a coffee sack to cover them up.
I folded over the top of the sack so I could slip a spring rod inside.
I covered up the seam with this brown ribbon.
I had to cut the sack so the printing was centered.
I covered up the cut areas with this trim I found at Walmart.
There were some holes in my coffee sack :(
I covered them up with buttons.
I added this adorable ruffle to the bottom.
I purposely made the skirt a little short. I felt it would get too dusty if it brushed the floor.
Did you know you can get ruffle on a roll?
I bought mine in white and then dyed a piece in coffee before adding it to the burlap skirt.
I don't sew, so this whole skirt was put together with fabric glue and hot glue.
Next up: Adding cute tags to the baskets.
I was asked where the baskets came from. I got them from Costco a couple of years ago.
A couple of people wanted more details on how I made the tags.
Here's all my supplies.
Step 1: Rub distress ink all around the edges of the tags.
Both ink and tags are from the craft store.
Step 2: See the things that look like travel stickers? Well they aren't stickers, you use a popsicle stick to rub them onto paper. I purposely didn't line mine up and only rubbed half of an image on some of the tags. I think it has more interest that way. I got my rub-ons on clearance at Michael's craft store.
Step 3: Add the number stickers. These are not scrap book stickers. They are heavy duty vinyl stickers. I found them in Walmart with garage sale signs and address plaques.
Step 4: I used twine to tie the tags to the baskets.
I hope I've answered all your questions.
If not drop me a comment and I'll go back and edit the post to answer it. :)
