Craft Desk

My dear, sweet and thoughtful husband really blessed me a couple of weeks ago by making me a super cute craft corner, complete with a custom craft desk and organizational peg board to hang over it.

Seriously, I never thought I would see the day where I would have this. I figured the kids would have to be out of the house for us to have the space (and time to craft, honestly!). But here I am, with my own little space and I am one happy girl!

We had a framed picture above our couch in the family room that I just recently replaced and so I decided I wanted to use it for the frame around my pegboard, to make the pegboard look a little nicer. Allen painted the pegboard and we bought a little peg hanging kit with all of the hooks and shelf hangers from Lowe's. The rest of it Allen made by hand, including the spool organizer. I made the cup organizers from metal cans and leftover fabric, so all of that was completely free.

The ribbon is hanging from a dowel rod that Allen already had in the garage. Such a huge improvement from how I stored my ribbon before (just a huge basket of spools with ribbons flying everywhere!).

I used the glass from the frame and put it on the desk with fabric and a measuring tape underneath for a quick measurement now and then. So far it has worked out perfectly and it brightens up the desk a bit.

 The baskets that were in my craft closet fit perfectly in the spaces under the shelves. Allen says he knew that, that's why he did it. ;)

We also attached the power strip to the top of the desk so that there weren't a bunch of cords hanging around on the ground (one thing I can't stand!). And he made me a cord keeper to put all the cords in that hangs from the top of the desk.

Now the only thing missing are 3 little chairs for the little people who always want to help with whatever I am making!
