It's not every day my desk looks like this! I knew you were coming over so I tidied up ;)
I don't have the craft room or studio of my dreams. Living in a unit / apartment in a busy part of the city can be compact, but I've made the most of the space I do have. It helps to be organised and have a place to put everything away - storage boxes from Ikea, tackle boxes, recycled jars and a couple of vintage wooden boxes.
These plastic storage boxes with lots of compartments are a great place to keep beads and jewellery findings.
this globe doubles as a storage place for a shell crown
Instead of buying new jars, recycle. It's worth spending the time soaking off sticky labels and it's good to be able to see what's inside. I'm labelling mine with chalk board stickers.
See how I made the shelves here.
I'm loving this wooden hand I bought at TYPO on sale for only $15, if you're in Australia. It makes a great jewellery holder.
Tell me.. what's on your desk?
I love seeing all of your beads and pretty bracelet supplies. I'm sewing a heart right now and it's on my desk. Sweet hugs!ReplyDelete

I love the sooting, clean look of your desk. I must have missed the post about how to make the shelves. I think I might like to make some.ReplyDelete
My desk is actually clean right now because I participated in the Where Bloggers Create party at My Desert Cottage. I got everything organized and I have kept it that way through 3 projects.
oh, gosh you really don't want to see my desk!!!! definently not as organised as yours, but I have been working on it actally! It does get a bit neglected!!! I love typo, they have some great little trinkets; I love your boxes! they look older, I was surprised when you said where you got them from!ReplyDelete

This is a good one.ReplyDelete

It looks like such a nice place to work on, very serene, I love how the chair brings some colour. My desk is also in the living-room, as I don't have an office.ReplyDelete

Seriously, you do not want to see my desk at the moment. Maybe one day soon it will look as pretty as yours.ReplyDelete
