I love to craft, but to be honest I had an office/craft room that wasn’t very WOM-WORTHY!  Steve and I share a space…and poor Steve really only gets this room to “MAKE HIS OWN.”  That’s where I come in.
My WOM-MOM headquarters needed a major WOM-UPGRADE!   Mission:  I needed creative, functional, and appealing storage!  Of course—I hit IKEA.

The Billie Bookcases did the trick with the glass doors…and even better they were on sale. 

Side-by-side STORAGE!
THRIFTY TIP:  Never ship from IKEA….they will get you on shipping.  I always try to make a trip to IKEA when a trip to the cities is planned.  I can’t afford the gas so one trip is the WAY TO GO!
I think the white cabinets really pop against the red tomato colored walls. 

I feel super organized!
Next up, I needed storage for my craft items and hit up nearby thrift stores looking for baskets, glass jars, anything and everything that would look appealing and hold my items in an organized manner!  SCORE! 

Clear containers, colorful craft supplies=ART
I found lots of fabulous storage jars (they are pieces of art when filled) at my small town ND salvation armory.

Mission accomplished!  I feel inspired!  I feel organized! …And all of this on a tight budget.

This tall jar holds all my painting supplies!

My fabric "stash" (organized by fabric type and color)

Does the craft room/office need more design inspiration?  HECK YES!  Curtains will be hung…wall art will be hung (fun fact:  we found our 1939 house blueprints in addition to an old newspaper used as insulation in the crawl space—we will be framing (of course using a coupon) and hanging those up very soon). 
If you have any craft room photos…please share.  We are always looking for inspiration and photos from our followers.  Send those to  We promise to share photos with all of you!  Who knows…maybe I will “steal” your ideas for my craft room décor!

I love this! I am all about organization! I used old wine glasses in my bathroom for q-tips and cotton balls and it looks classy:)

Can you give the details of which bookcases & doors these are? I am looking on the ikea site and not finding those doors in the "Billie" section.
