Craft Room / Home Office is Taking Shape!

So, it's all still a work in progress, but teachers report back to school on August 25, so I have vowed to finish this room before I am back to work!

I had 4 white Lack floating shelves from Ikea in my previous home, and this is the perfect room for the shelves in the new house! So, yesterday, I installed 2 of them (oh, it's so fun getting them level!!) and then I installed an Ikea "Bygel" bar w/ some Ikea hanging tin cups for markers, pens, glue sticks, and scissors.

Almost 2 full walls done pretty much.....2.25 walls to go!

Here is a close-up of the bar & hanging cups (see below for how to buy these!)

Here is the next wall. I am going to put some art between the shelf and the ribbon rack.

I made a ribbon organization system using a dowel from Michael's (I spraypainted it white) and then used two curtain rod brackets I bought at Home Depot for a cheap price and then rested the dowel in the brackets. Here is a close-up:

Here is a metal knife rack from Ikea I'm using as a rack to hold magnetic jars full of office supplies. Love it! Easy to install!

Shopping List:
Ikea Lack Shelf in white, $19.99 (Click here for link!)
Bygel Bar, $1.99 (Yes, only 2 DOLLARS!!!) (Click here for link!)
Kroken cutlerly caddy, $3.99 each, (Note, these aren't really a good fit for teh Bygel bar, their hooks don't reach around the bar....but I didn't want to return them, so I pried the hook open wider with a hammer to allow them to fit around the bar!) (Click here for link!)


  1. Looks great! I love how organized everything is~

  2. Love your home office, it looks really good, hopefully when I move I can finally get a craft area/office space that looks similar!
