I wanted to create lots of storage that was functional and colorful and eclectic, and this great big pegboard was just the ticket.
I scoured Pinterest looking for pegboard organizing ideas, and there are so many great ones! My favorite thing was this baker's twine organizer from Damask Love -- it works great for washi tape as well.
The clipboard gives me a great spot to enjoy some happy art. My current pick is this happy typewriter print from Alexa Z Designs -- I have a turquoise typewriter just like this, and it's one of my prize possessions. A long peg on the top row is a perfect place to hang all my pretty Hazel and Ruby papers.
I used 2" hooks to hang lots of organizing containers. These buckets came from the Dollar Store many years ago, and the rectangular wire baskets came from the kitchen section at IKEA - a treasure trove for craft organizing!
These long bars also came from IKEA - it's perfect for storing punches. Because the punches are so heavy, I screwed these right into the wall behind the peg board.
I love color, texture, and typography, so these MAKE letters make me happy every time I see them. The M is a painted wood letter. The A is from one of those cool new Marquee Love letters from Heidi Swapp. The K came from Michaels. The E is also a wood letter, but I glued lots of layers of red crepe paper, then gave it a few spritzes of glitter mist. That red tassel garland came from IKEA at Christmas time.
This is the extent of my sewing area - that cover doesn't make it off the machine very often. Sewing is not my strong suite, but I love this very old sewing cabinet that I inherited from my grandma. I'm hoping to restore it to all its midcentury glory at some point.
On the opposite side of room, we built barn-door style doors to close off my studio (because it's usually a hot mess), and I painted the backsides with chalkboard paint. On the right, which is always visible, I keep a to-do list for my shop and the creative projects I want to tackle. I let the kids go to town on the other side.
That long wall hanging to the right is a gorgeous vintage counted cross stitch from Denmark that some dear friends gave us a couple years ago when my husband and I went back for a visit.
Oh, and here's the newest addition to my studio - my new little crafting companion! Her name is Cookie, and she's the sweetest little miss you could imagine.
