This is the view of the room from the doorway. I've left out the office furniture on the other side of the room. You'll see I have a glass top table- I love it because when it gets adhesive all over it I can just Windex it clean- which was actually my dining room table when I was living the single life. The other two chairs are hidden away in a closet because of my lack of space. :)
This is the main wall of my crafting space. I have a 9 cube organizer with Martha Stewart bins from Home Depot. They store punches, adhesive, tools, stamps, embossing folders, twine- just about everything! On top of the 9 drawer organizer is my baby wipes container for cleaning stamps and a coaster- I need my Coke Zero when I craft, but I can't risk it getting on whatever I'm creating!! Hanging above it is where I keep my ribbon in jars from the Dollar Tree. Next to that are some old sterilite drawer units that I use for more storage and then next to that is a shelf where I keep my Cricuts. The bottom shelf holds some binders and my 12x12 paper storage. On top of the shelving unit are two ribbon carousels that I use to store my Washi tape in. I also have a cork board and the dry erase board that I made here.
This is the back corner. For now, that brown shelf is just storing things but it's usually used for Cricut cartridges, like here. Because I knew I was going to be tight on space, I put the Cricut boxes in our storage unit for now and am just keeping the cartridges, handbooks, and overlays in some small bins. I have a memo board where I keep some odds and ends, a spinning organizer I got from Michaels, a spice rack with brads and buttons, and an old microwave stand that's also a carryover from my single days. There's my Cameo in a place of honor, and in the cupboard I keep my paper stacks. Next to that is a brand new rolling organizer that I just bought, and I LOVE it. I keep projects that are long term- like my "favorite things" Smash book- in those drawers so I can just pull them out when I want to work on them.
Last but not least, is Sophie's corner of the craft room. I bought this bed so that she would have a comfy place to sleep while I craft, and it took her awhile to get used to it but now it's her favorite bed in the house (she has three). The blanket was a Christmas present from her aunt (my sister).

So there you have it. My apartment craft room. Compact, but functional. :)
