My guest/craft room hasn’t been anything impressive—it’s full of mismatched furniture (most of which I do love) and, until two weeks ago, I hadn’t found a good arrangement in there to make it look less than thrown together. But then I needed to clean the space to make room for the mess on my dining room table (sadly, that mess got worse before it got better). And I really didn’t feel like cleaning, so I rearranged the room instead! I now LOVE the set up. I found a furniture arrangement that gives me more floor space than I’ve ever seen in the room, which will be great when the nephews and niece or my parents spend the night. Since I love the new set up, I’m loving getting everything organized. I’ll show you more pictures as I go, but for now I’m going to share what I’ve done to organize my thread and buttons.
My mom gave me a hanging jewelry organizer for Christmas. She got it at TJ Max but has seen them in lots of stores since then. I already have a good system for my jewelry, so I decided to use it in my craft room.
One side holds all my thread… nicely organized in rainbow order.
(It was good to finally see how many spools I have of each color. Maybe I will stop buying white thread for at least a little while…)
The other side holds all my buttons, also sorted in rainbow order.
(I bought a GREAT pack of over 800 buttons at Joann’s a while back for $8 regular price, and then I had a 40% off coupon!)
I hung it on the wall instead of in the closet so it’s easily accessible. I love seeing the colors all together!
And now to go sew some more for another fun element of the room!
