I've organized a closet and made it my craft room!

I had so many craft supplies and no where to put them.  I decided to clean out our spare bedroom closet and use the closet as my craft room.  Let me tell you it was a mess and I can't believe I'm going to show you the before!  I'm totally embrassed, but I'm keeping it real.  Seriously, the rest of my house does not look  like this.  Are you ready to see a big mess?

I had so much stuff on my shelves I could not find anything. The shelves caught all of the crap.

I'm not excatly sure what you call this space, but it was another place that I put more stuff.

Just look at this mess!  Can you say OMG???  I'm so embrassed showing you this.

We kept our movies in the closet.  Still messy!

Here's all the stuff that was in the closet now in our spare bedroom.  My hubby helped me clean out the closet.  It took us all day to clean up and get organized.

Now it's all cleaned out and I bought a lot of bins and actually labeled the bins.  I finally know where all of my things are now.

Just another view of our clean space.

I had this bookshelf in the other closet and decided to use it to hold more crafts and fabric.  I added a cutain to the window to warm up the space.

Look at mybookshelf now!  I put my craft stuff and more bins on this shelf.  Doesn't it look much better.

I'm so proud of my clean closet/craft room...  I still need to buy more bins.
Thanks for stopping by!

Great makeover! I think we all have so much stuff and at one time or another our rooms/houses look the same - cluttered! I often wonder where we get all our stuff from! I love what you did here!

Looks like your HUMAN! Thanks for joining the rest of us! Whenever I clean out a closet I swear it will stay that way...until the next time I clean it out. Looks great.

Lori that looks great. My spare bedroom closet is just packed with stuff. It's great that you have a window in yours. It makes it feel more like a room and less like a closet. Great job!

Thanks for linking up to Make it Yours day!
