Craft Room FAQs & Resources

Hello, crafty friend! Since I began posting craft room updates, I’ve received loads of questions. I absolutely love sharing resources with my fellow crafters, so I’ve created this post to share answers to commonly asked questions and links to all my resources. Please feel free to share this post and let me know if you have any new questions in the comments below.

If you want to start at the beginning of the craft room remodel series, check out the first post HERE.

Until next time… stay crafty!

The Desk

Q: I love your pink stools. Where did you find them?

A: I purchased these on Amazon HERE. They come in several colors including these other fun options I was also considering:

Q: Where did you find the hot pink desk chair?

A: I bought it on Amazon HERE.

Update: The hot pink chair lasted about a year. I’ve since replaced it with THIS light pink chair from PBTeen.

Q: Where did you find those lamps?

A: They are the Tilda Bubble lamps from PBTeen.

Q: Where did you buy the island?

A: The base is made from pre-fab cabinets, but we built it otherwise. You can see more details on the process in THIS & THIS blog post.

Ink Storage

Originally I had the wide Ikea Alex Drawers and used three bins to store my ink collection.

Now, I have built-in drawers next to my desk where I keep mini ink cubes sorted by color in a set of ink cube storage boxes.

Catherine Pooler mini inks don’t fit in those storage boxes though, so I use adjustable makeup trays which fit perfectly perfectly in my drawer. Three mini inks fit in each slot leaning back slightly where I can see the colors.

As my collection grows, I’ll put four in each slot. Since they’ll stand straight up in that configuration, I’ll label the ends with the ink color.

An alternative storage I also loved when I didn’t have drawer space, are these 3-drawer and 4-drawer organizers. Both the mini cube and rectangle ink sizes fit nicely.

The drawer units are stackable and each drawer pulls out completely, so you can take them to your work area easily.

Island View

Q: What are the the little stands under the pineapple (in the closet) and where can I find them?

A: They are inkpad organizers, and can be found HERE.

(I also use them on their back to organize my cut cardstock, project life cards, & photos.)

The Closet

Q: Where did you get the thread holder in the sewing closet?

A: I purchased this from the Martha Stewart craft storage line nearly 10 years ago. I don’t see that it’s made anymore, but we are working to recreate it along with a tutorial for you!

Q: What kind of sleeves do you have your cardstock stored in?

A: For my 8.5″x11″ cardstock, I like to use these storage pockets found on Amazon HERE. For 12″x12″ papers & collections, I like THESE storage envelopes.

Q: What do you use to photograph your cards?

A: I use my iPhone to take the photos next to the window in my craft room. I use THIS reflector or THIS diffuser to adjust the light and I use THESE backdrops and THIS adjustable rolling stand.
