Easy organization…Ikea Trofast

I am a huge fan of Ikea, as a lot of us crafters are.  One trip a few years back was all it took, and I was hooked.  I am convinced that pretty much everything that Ikea makes can be used for craft storage or used in a craft room!  One of my very first pieces was the Ikea Trofast storage system.  It is actually sold as a child’s storage piece, but is great for storing other things, like crafts!  It is one of my most beloved pieces, so when I saw the picture below by Pam Kueber, I wanted to share, as this is definitely something I want to create in my craft room.  I also found on Pinterest a post by Jen de Jong, of how she uses the Ikea Trofast storage system for her fabric and such.  Which I also fell in love with!  The best part of this system is the cost, AND they also sell unfinished frames that you can paint yourself (see below).  Bucket colors are offered in white, green, pink, yellow and orange (large bucket sizes).  Dare say I will not have enough room for all these Trofast tables and towers I want to build, but it is definitely inspiring and dream worthy!

Eat, sleep, create, repeat.

Bed springs…not just for sleeping!

One thing that I absolutely love is seeing old furniture re-purposed for craft rooms!   I love it when someone is able to take a piece of furniture that might otherwise be thrown away, and give it new life.  It truly amazes me how a little paint, hardware and creativity can produce some exquisite pieces for craft display and storage.  Below are just a few samples that I have seen on Pinterest.  The last picture is where some creative genius re-purposed an old bed spring as a delightful area to store craft goodies!
