Creative Upcycled Craft Room Ideas

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.

Upcycled Furniture

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!
