Hello friends! Welcome to another week of Must Have Craft Tips! Kara from Mine for the Making here this week to share Creative Upcycled Craft Room Ideas with you. I love a good upcycle or repurposed project and I love a pretty, organized craft room. Let’s check out these unique solutions.
I love taking something ‘old’ and making it new and fresh again. Especially furniture! Just add some elbow grease and lots of love, and you can turn any dingy piece of furniture into a focal point of your room. Here are a few of my favorite furniture transformations that are perfect for the craft room. Some are used for storage and others are used for work spaces.

Upcycled Projects for Organization and Decoration
You would be surprised what you can use for organization and decoration. An old baby crib, a vintage crate, tin cans… So many options if you open your creative mind on alternative ways to use ordinary things. Let’s check out some of my favorite up cycled projects for organizing and decorating your craft room.
Upcycled baby crib to craft storage
Repurposed frame to chic pincushion
Upcycled Crates to craft shelves
Upcycled tray to magnetic board
Upcycled bed spring to craft storage
Repurposed tins to pencil holder
Repurposed frame to thread holder
Such great ideas! Most times that I upcycle or repurpose something, I save money doing so and I love it so much more because of the effort put into it. Do you have any upcycled projects or pieces in your craft room?
Join us next week for more tips on using upcycled ideas in your homes!

Hello, friends! It’s a new month so it’s time for a new topic for our Craft Tips series!
For February, we are focusing on upcycle/repurposing projects. Each week we will take a look at these types of projects in different areas of the home.
This week I am focusing on some really fun upcycle and repurposing projects for the KITCHEN! Some of these are actual kitchen items used in interesting ways, but I also found a few items that have nothing to do with the kitchen and people found a way to find a use for them and incorporate them into their space.
Vintage Cheese Grater Organizer from Homeroad
Antique Dresser Kitchen Island from Heir and Space
Foot Board Tea Cup Holder from Capitulo Dos
Teacup Pendant Lamp Shades from Flamingo Toes
Shutter Island from Beyond the Picket Fence
