How I organize my craft room in a small space VIDEO

I’ve been asked a lot these past few days about how I organize my craft room in a small space. So I decided to reshoot my craft room video and put links of some of the items I have purchased on this post! I use one half of an extra bedroom. So I basically have one wall and part of the closet to work with. I hope this information is helpful to you and I would LOVE to see pics/videos of your craft space! I love seeing how everyone organizes themselves…

You can watch the video here or over on my youtube channel in HD!

  2. Love how your organize your crafty items 🙂

  3. Thanks for sharing! I wish I had even half of a room…I have to use the closet where I hang my clothes.
    If I ever get a little bit of space I hope to use some of the ideas you shared!

  4. I enjoyed watching your video Laurel! I love being able to hear you talk! 🙂 Great space… you have done a great job of organizing it!! I love organizing!! 🙂

  5. Great video and organization ideas! Thank you for all of the links! I think that I will use part of our master bedroom. I also plan to purchase items from Ikea and Target.

    This is my temporary storage and I use our dining table for now.

    I had a giant desk when we lived in Texas and just got it set up to my liking before my husband got a new job… The desk was too large to move, so I am rethinking my space and organization.

  6. Thanks for sharing your home and storage ideas. Where did you get the lamps for the photo box? I need a way to take better pics esp when it is raining or snowing outside. I guess any clip-on light would do and I have seen white plastic “boxes” at Target. I may try that…

  7. Great video! I love seeing how people store their supplies. This makes me want to clean up my room and take some pictures…but, first, I’ll have to clean, lol.

    Thanks for sharing your crafty space. I love to watch how others store their craft supplies. Your craft room is so tidy and organized. Question: Could you perhaps post how your husband made your light box and filming stand? Sorta new to taking pictures and when I do, they come out darker than my liking. And I would like to eventually try making videos when I get a blog set up. I’d appreciate it so much. TFS.

    1. Carol, I sent you an email! I don’t have instruction on how my husband made the filming stand. He is an Engineer. I just showed him a picture and he headed off to the garage… I think all he used was wood, a saw, a drill and nails.

      As far as the light box, I used this tutorial on this blog:

  9. You did give me a couple great ideas; thanks. I will blog my craft space next week. Hopefully I can help by sharing some of my space saving ideas.

  10. Thanks so much for making this video. I live in an apartment and space is limited. Luv what you have done with the amount of space you got.
    Connie : )

  11. Great video, thanks for sharing all the links! I wish I had even as much space as you! I have about half that much space and it’s always very messy!

    Help with storing wood stamp!!

    I also have limited space (garage) as a craft room so I was wondering what would you or anybody else recommend as a way to store wooden stamps.

    1. Laurel Beard says:

      Hmm. Wooden stamps are tough. I only have a few so they are stored in one of my drawers. I have seen people put them on shelves. Perhaps you can put a small shelf up in the garage and store them on there? Or just get a small plastic storage bin and put them in there??? Sorry, I don’t have many ideas when it comes to wooden blocks obviously… Good luck.

  14. I love your space, Laurel. It’s so clean and organized. It’s full of great ideas, thanks!
