I finally have my own office! And I can show you how I turned a standard wardrobe into a craft closet and all its organisation.
When we built our house, we were very focused on prioritising spending money on what we were actually going to use. Cupboards and fittings in spare bedrooms were most definitely not a priority. Case in point; our recent kitchen renovation.
And so … craft closet organisation!
We had the cabinetry custom built so it could fit the space. When I designed the wardrobe, I wanted it to be able to double as a craft closet as well as a perfectly functioning clothes cupboard when someone uses this room as a bedroom.
All of our craft and gift wrapping supplies are stored in this cupboard; most of which I buy in bulk to save money. Purchasing small rolls of wrapping paper than wraps two presents seems like a waste of money and don’t get me started on paying $6 for a card just to write the most generic message you will ever read because I’m much more of an actions than words kind of person.
I purchased some oval shaped wardrobe hinge hangers and used some dowel from Bunnings to rest against the hinge hangers to hang the wrapping paper. I painted the craft paper organiser pink and added labels to everything from Pretty.Little.Designs.
The cupboard is stocked with things that I use on a regular basis, gifting supplies being one of them. Koch and Co is a wholesaler who has a fantastic range of generic wrapping paper, boxes and bags. I keep a stash of each (in the white magazine files) so I always have stuff on hand.
I purchase the main items as plain as I can and dress up all wrapping with pretty ribbons, flowers and embellishments.
The first drawer is reserved for all my craft tools and is kept in containers from Ikea. I do however believe they no longer stock the see through lid containers.
