This Blogger Creates in a Closet Made Over for $15

This is my guest bedroom and there is a crafty little secret hidden in it's midst.



I create behind the guest bedrooms closet doors. I truly adore having an area where I can work on various crafting and sewing projects and can close the door on any creative messes if I need to stop for awhile. The entire transformation from a closet to a creative space cost just $15. It now holds all of my favorite treasures. 




The closet first received a fresh coat of white paint that I already had on hand. I then headed to IKEA in search of storage solutions and a work table. I always check the "as is" section first. I found just what I wanted. Two bathroom sink cabinets without doors for $4.00 each.



Sink cabinets, what? Yep, I knew I was going to cover the tops of the sink bases with some sort of work table so it didn't really matter what they actually were, only that they had shelving and were inexpensive!


I then found an IKEA work tabletop that was a bit dinged up and marked down to $2.99. The only problem was it was 1" too wide for the space. I bought it anyway and went home to bat my eyelashes at Mr. Decor and his table saw.




I covered the black surface with some heavy duty wrapping paper. The beauty is that I can always recover the surface whenever it gets a bit grungy or I decide to change the color palette. The fun really began when I stared to decorate the closet. 




On the right hand side of the closet I set up my sewing station.



I love open shelving and clear containers. I can find what I need very quickly.




I repurposed some existing storage boxes to hold my other assorted bits and bobs of pure bliss. I hope to make some cuter tags in the future, but these work for now.
,




Mr. Decor had made three shelves for one wall in the bedroom but we decided that two really looked the best. Never one to waste anything I had him install the remaining shelf in the closet.



We purchased simple (very inexpensive) pine boards at Home Depot and Mr. Handy Dandy Decor cut them to my specifications.






I found decorative brackets and molding at Lowes. He attached the molding to the edge of the shelves with wood glue and finish nails.





On the left side of the closet I left an open space to work on scrapbooking, jewelry making or other creative endeavors.




A french memo board I had was ivory in color and really didn't work with the crisp white palette so I just covered it with my corsage creations.




I placed a lazy susan in the center of the work table for easier access. It had just been sitting in the garage but now holds a few of my favorite things.



Our only expenses for this $15 space were the sink bases, tabletop and wrapping paper to cover the work surface. Everything else we had on hand. The space has worked out well for me. Hopefully it will inspire others to carve out a creative space in an unexpected place.

What a dream closet. I would love to have a space to sew and then be able to just walk away when time ran out. Your closet is wonderful. Hugs, Marty

blushing rose said...

Great job, Laura. Clever use of items & space. TTFN ~Marydon

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Wow, Laura, you did great here! I love your clear glass containers with the colorful threads in them ~ functional yet pretty. Great use of the space!

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

Love your closet Laura!! I am so hoping to get my craft things organized this winter!

Coastal Sisters said...

I am painting the fabric on an old flame stitch patterned chair that was a horrid icky mauve, blue and pale yellow color! I will let you know when I am done so you can see it and give me your stamp of approval :) It's a real challenge!

I love your new space you created for all your supplies.

No! I am still working on my son's bedroom. He looks after his dad. My husband and he just love to spend money, the more the better, I would almost say! Everything has to be new! I just love 2nd hand or antiques, but they just don't. Now I have to say that my husband has worked very hard to come from a son of a single parent who was living on welfare to where he is now, a director of one of the major IT companies of Europe.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I can't wait to see the room Laura! I have been working on my guest bedroom, formerly my step-son' bedroom and I have about $150 in it so far. I love the work space, now is this all inside your closet? Fabulous ideas! Cindy

April said...

It is BEAUTIFUL! I think I could live in that closet--all the jars of vintage trim yumminess, sparkly pretty things, and clear workspace to boot--that is at a high premium in my house!
Great job! I love the corsage creations board and lazy susan, too. Too much fun in one small space.

Wow, excellent job on the closet redo! Everyone is redoing spaces it seems...must be that time of year :) When you have a minute pop by and see my brand new studio. I loved the way that you sorted all of your ric-rac, thread, etc. by color. I may have to do that...Have a blessed day, Laura.

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

That is such a fantastic (and CHEAP!) sewing space! Now that I've embraced the sewing I need a serious plan to corral all of my supplies...they're kind of out of control and taking over the house. I'm inspired by your organization!

Miss Sandy said...

Love, love, love your cute closet!!! Yes, I just posted on scrounging around for what I had on hand to replace some storage in my studio. I can't wait to see your guest room. I just know it will be dreamy!

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

Very nicely done. I am doing everything for pennies these days. And, thankfully, the blogging world provides so much inspiration and support. There are so many details in your redo that are wonderful. I am particularly happy to see your use of glass jars. I have been saving every glass jar for a couple of years now to fill with trims and pieces for sale in my business. However, I will also use them to sort my own little collection of craft items, too. Yours look so sweet. Well done!

Carolyn @ My Backyard Eden said...

It may be a small space but it is your space....and when you go to look for something you don't have to go far......sometimes I think small is better!

Tricia said...

You have such a great space in that closet - good job! And I was impressed at your hubby's willing spirit to help you create. That is great! I've noticed a lot of blogger husbands getting into the act with hammer and nails, glue and paint. Isn't that awesome! My dh was a huge help in getting my space together. He has persevered through all my many changes! Ha! Thanks for sharing and for visiting my place.
Blessings,

What a well thought out space. The best part is that you can close it off when you don't want anyone to see it when you are in creative mode.
I will cast another vote for you.
Best of Luck- Diane

imaginationlane said...

I stopped by to thank you for your kind words on my blog, but soon became captivated by your studio tour. Your blog is glorious! Such a sense of style you have...I just kept scrolling down. The vintage tablecloths repurposed as skirts is brilliant.

It was lovely to visit with you. I've signed up to follow and will be back again, making sure to cast my vote for the Oprah contest. Your audition tape is great...

Thanks again for your comment...

ginger@bearbits said...

Hi Laura,

Well, here I am impressed on two levels. The first that your closet holds so many things without looking like it is stuffed! Then, doing it all for so little investment is amazing. It helps to have a gentleman like your Mr. Decor to help out. I wouldn't have shelves if it wasn't for my handyman - who also mows the lawn and well, you get the idea.
Sometimes it seems like I don't hear of many people sewing anymore but then I drop into blogland and find all kinds of people and their sewing machines and materials! Yea!

Thank you for letting us see your special space!

~ginger

Janet Bernasconi said...

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog:) Funny, because I was trying to convince my hubby to turn out laundry space into my creative space. It would have been a closet. I had so many fabulous ideas but alas it wasn't going to work out;) I love your space! So well thought out!:)

Charlene said...

Amazing you did this for so little cash out of your pocket!!!! LOVE IT! And it looks great & functional. The best part is being able to shut the doors to hide it if needed. That is how mine got to be a mess! I am so glad that it is clean now & I plan to keep it that way. One question for you... how do you keep the paper down on your work surface? Tape? Next year when I tear the wallpaper off & repaint my counters won't match the color scheme so I was thinking your idea of covering them might work. Have a great week. Charlene

Thats such a lovley space to create in, its nice to see how you used things you already had at hand (love reusing things, antique, hand-me-down or great finds) its all about what you put your mind in too. The threads in jars is a great idea, keeps them dust free. Glad I got to see it : )

Not only am I in love with your guest room. I think the closet space is just perfect for creating all the lovely things you do. So many closets just sit there and are of no use. What you and Mr. Decor did was the perfect solution. Everything has it's place and can be seen with no effort. I would love to visit and go thru all the pretty containers and jars. Thankyou so much for sharing with us, it's magical. Char
