Paper Cupboard makeover

After our renovation, I pretty much crammed everything into my crafting cupboards and made do.  I added some extra storage, and made it up as I went along … but it was too damn hard to work in.


On the surface it didn’t look too bad, but I was finding it hard to move boxes to get to other boxes behind them, and there wasn’t much working space on my desk.

So, while hubby was away for a couple of days with work, I pulled everything out, with a view to storing more efficiently

Instantly my desk looked better … but I had to deal with all of this …

Stuff to rehome

It was super time consuming.  I had boxes and containers that I’d just shoved things into, because I couldn’t get to my colour embellishment boxes.  I emptied them all, and filed them properly into the embellishment boxes.  I still have a few small things to take care of, but I can work more easily on my desk, and pack up much faster between projects.

Desk after

Look at all that space!  Adding some tiered shelves has helped get a lot of things off the desk, and I will add some 3M hooks above the Cricut machine to hang some of my new goodies in sight.


Ta-daaaaa!  The finished cupboard!  Sure … I have 2 more to do, but at least I can work in this one.  Why did I choose the paper cubpoard first?  Because I have a HUGE deadline looming and it is papercrafting … so now I can work for a while, and hit the fabric cupboard when that deadline has passed 🙂  It’s nice to have one place where I can look, and know that the job is done!
