Looking for craft room ideas? Tour my craft room and take a peek at my colorful craft room organization!
Oh my gosh, you guys! It was recently brought to my attention that I have never shared my awesome new craft room with y’all! We rearranged some of the spaces in our house about a year ago, and as a result, this incredible new craft room was born out of my boys’ old playroom loft space. Our cheery new craft room is a wonderfully inspirational space that’s jam-packed with colorful and creative organization ideas!
Craft Room Tour – Happiness is Homemade
In the center of the craft room is an 8’x4′ raised Masonite work table that is built upon two 3′ square storage cubbies for maximum storage space. I have LOTS of craft supplies, so having a designated place to put everything is crucial for keeping my craft room tidy and organized!
As you can see, there’s a lot of storage and organization going on in this room! The 9-cube storage cubbies that serve as the base of the work table are filled with foldable storage cubes that keep my supplies neatly out of sight. I also have two sets of plastic drawers under the table that house my bath & body craft supplies. I’m head over heels for the looks of those yellow bar stools, but when I’m sitting and working at the table for an extended period of time, I much prefer the cushy padding and the low back on my white leather chair!
Okay, but enough about chairs and tables…let’s talk about the thing that everyone always mentions when they first see my craft room – my amazing mint green pegboard wall of awesomeness! The pegboard takes up an entire wall of the craft room (measuring 12′ wide), and it’s packed full of SOOO many fun supplies that my 4-year-old niece is convinced that I have an actual craft store inside of my house – ha! She insists upon visiting “Aunt Heidi’s Craft Store” every time she comes over to visit!
You may have seen Ikea BEKVÄM spice racks used as bookshelves before, and in my craft room, we use them for storing TONS of things! I actually have a dozen of these spice rack shelves on my pegboard, and I absolutely LOVE them! They’re the perfect size for storing spools of ribbon and bottles of paint, glue, and other doodads!
One of my favorite things on the pegboard wall is my vintage soda crate filled with washi tape – SO fun, right?
In case you hadn’t noticed, I tend to organize everything in rainbow order, and this row of shimmery shiny Minc foils are no exception!
Aside from the spice rack shelves, I also have a bunch of these wire storage bins for holding other odds and ends.
And, of course, lots and LOTS of pegs and hooks for hanging up everything else!
My pegboard tool organizer is also one of my must-haves – it holds SO many things, and it’s a great way for me to keep all of my scissors and tools in one convenient location!
This fun geometric cubby shelf is the perfect size for storing my glitter collection!
At the top of the pegboard, I installed several shelves for even more craft supply organization. I love using these 1/2 gallon mason jars to hold my small scrap pieces of ribbon and lace!
(The shelves also make a great place to display my collection of Funko Pop figures! Bonus points if you can name them all!)
The very top shelf on my pegboard wall is filled with some of my favorite vintage goodies – cameras and camera equipment, Tole painted trays, and a “Happiness is Still Homemade” cross stitch that I adore!
There are actually quite a few Happiness is Homemade decorations hidden throughout the room!
I swear, someday I’ll eventually complete this cute little cross stitch kit!
The far corner of the pegboard wall is adjacent to my blue vintage desk and is home to all of my sewing supplies including this colorful rack of threads.
On the wall opposite the pegboard are three high windows, and a lot more stuff! Lining the wall are my photo prop credenza (which now holds plastic shoeboxes of craft supplies instead of photo props), a tall bookshelf, and my craft paint storage shelves.
A long time ago, I made a craft paint storage shelf out of a recycled drawer, but since my craft paint collection has grown considerably since that time, I now have two homemade shelves to hold my numerous paints!
The tall bookcase stores all of my cutting machines, my Minc foil machine, my laminator, and all of the related supplies. The only thing that’s missing from these shelves is my Cricut Maker, because I use it so often that it’s taken up permanent residence in the center of my craft room table!
On top of the bookshelf are more storage drawers along with a few vintage treasures and a handful of old craft projects. The “Be Kind” sign is inspired by one that was made by Creative Green Living a while back, and I adore it!
Everywhere you look, there’s something else organized in rainbow order! These bright and colorful micas are the latest addition to my bath & body craft supply collection.
The third wall of the craft room is where my oversized craft supply cabinet stands. Let me tell you, this baby is also key in helping to keep my space looking clean and tidy because it’s a hot mess inside of there…
There’s a hodgepodge of supplies in there including embroidery thread, jewelry supplies, and Project Life cards, but the majority of the supplies in here are things that I use with my Cricut machine – scrapbook papers, vinyl, crafting blanks (and MUCH more!).
Next to the cabinet is a dresser that holds all of my fabrics (you can see what I use to organize my fabrics here!). The top two drawers are filled with a rainbow of colors and patterns, and the bottom drawer is home to my vintage sheet fabric collection.
And I can’t forget my vintage Royal typewriter – one of my favorite things EVER! I have been debating spray painting this typewriter for years now…what do you think? Should I go for it?
I picked up these cute galvanized envelopes from Magnolia Market a couple of years ago, and I use them for storing important documents and displaying photos above my desk. My youngest son filled this envelope with a handmade version of my logo for me ♥
My craft room is my favorite room in the whole house, and I love spending my time in here! When you’re surrounded by so much inspiration, it’s easy to come up with tons of awesome new creative ideas to share with our friends and readers!

Pin These Craft Room Ideas for Later!
I just saw your space posted on Pinterest and your space is so similar to what I’ve envisioned for mine that I showed my husband. It’s gorgeous.

DON’T paint the old typewriter!!! Leave it just as it is.
I stumbled across your page on Pinterest and it’s beautiful. I love the polkadot bag on your table. Could you tell me where you got it from?
Hi Erin, I believe that was a HSN special a few years ago! 🙂
Where did you get the polka dot tool bag sitting on your table?? Love your room by the way.
Barbara Laskowski says
Your room is fantastic. I’ve been trying to find a ready made table for my She Shed. This may be the answer to my prayers. Where did you get the cubbies you used underneath it?
Thanks, Barbara! The base of the table is made from two 9-cube Cubeicals Organizers (available at this link here on Amazon!).
I love your craft room and all the colors!
Thanks, Abigail! Glad you liked it! 🙂
I love your room I wish I had a designated room for all my craft and some stuff I have a little bit everywhere in the house enjoyed your post and you’re asking people if you should paint your typewriter I think it’s beautiful the way it is I would be paying it thank you for your ideas. Brigetta
I see that you have added something to the spice rack ends to be able to use pegboard hooks to hang them. But what exactly are they? Love the simplisticness of those racks!
Hi Adrienne, we used small “L” brackets that we flattened and attached to the back of the spice racks as hooks for hanging them!
Where did you get the wood top for your workspace on top of the cubes? Seems like it has a smooth surface, not just a plywood board. Looking to find something like this and not sure what my best options are. Ikea seems real expensive for something this large
The table top is a sheet of plywood with a sheet of smooth Masonite on top of it. It’s SUPER smooth and easy to work on! They’re under $10 for a full 4′ x 8′ sheet at your local hardware store! (It also takes paint really well if you intend on painting it – mine is all white now!) 🙂
I live your craft room! I’m just getting a room going and your bolt has been my inspiration! How did you mount your table top to the cubbies? Just put mine up and it’s not super sturdy.
Hello Missy! I bolted a 1 x 4 pine board to the sides of the cabinets at the top. It provides extra support for the table top and helps to keep the cubbies in line!
Geez! I love your craft room* 😂
I love this! Where did you get the Vintage Soda Display and that wooden cubby? I’ve been looking for something like that for my knitting needles.
Thanks, Chrys! I picked up both of them at a yard sale! 🙂
OMG and wow! so awesome to see, thanks for posting! it gives me an idea to at least have a wooden shelf for some ribbons and i can hang it in my closet or behind my door maybe? i can’t think of any space i have to use so better than nothing!
I would love to have a big craft room. Thanks for sharing these great ideas. I have most of my items in bins and stacked on metal racks. I will save these ideas and try to work on organizing with some of these ideas.
Sandy B says
Love this craft room wish mine looked like that! Love all the ideas of organizing my stuff, great article!
Betty Fisher says
Some of your storage ideas I already have but I really like the idea for the board and higher storage on it. I have so much on shelves
and in cabinets that I can’t see or forget about. Your idea puts it right out there. Thank you
I have just seen this and joined your blog. I absolutely love how you designed your craft room!!! I have been working on mine and my husband is making my craft table for me. Thanks for letting us in to visit yours 😊
Your craft room is amazing! And an intimidating prospect to want to try to duplicate it – but I have to try!! :p I love it! I didn’t see a link as to where you bought all the pegboard. Did you have any suggestions? It looks like yours holds up well! Thank you so much!
Thanks so much, Ariana! The pegboard is from Home Depot! 🙂
Caitlin Lambert says
You did such an amazing job! Everything is soo good organized!! Congrats!

Oh. My. Gosh. I had so much to comment on, I don’t know where to begin! This is so incredibly intimidating AND inspiring ???? All that ribbon! And such organisation! You must feel so wonderfully inspired every time you set food inside this room!
I love all the things that have “Happiness is Homemade” on them; I’ve been wanting to make something with “The Small Adventurer” on it to remind myself what I am working towards, and that I always have my blog to focus on when other parts of life get a bit tough.
Most of all, though, I am super jealous of your Instax cameras! I love my white one as it goes with everything, but I also wish I had the colourful ones to brighten up my room a bit more!

Wow it is colorful! What an awesome craft space. It’s super organized! I love color, I love your blog, and I love you! 🙂 I’ve never told you this, but I have a sister who passed away from cancer at 42 yr old. Prior to her passing she had a craft business called “Homemade Happiness”. You and your blog have always reminded me of her so you hold a special place in my heart. <3
Awww, I love YOU, Jillene! I was having a rough morning today, and your sweet words just absolutely made my day 100 times better! ♥
