Preparing for the craft cabin

So I love craft work and have over the years amassed quite a collection of paraphernalia the cabin is now constructed and the electrics have been wired in and we’re just putting the final coat of paint on this weekend before we lay the flooring. So in all my excitement I have already ordered my desks and furniture and have pulled out all my craft bits from where they have been stored (read shoved) when we moved in. Our dining room has now exploded with my junk. J had encouraged me to get excited and get it all out ready, but I don’t think he realised just how much I have squirrelled away over the years. 


I have two main ‘types’ of craft which I tend to focus on: knitting/crochet which comes with a significant amount of wool and sewing of which I have lots of bits and pieces material. I also did a bit of cross stitch when I was younger and still have some remnants of that which it seems a waste to just get rid of. 

I’ve gone for Ikea furniture for various reasons; it is simple, cheap and good quality. I have so far gone for two different shelving units – a smaller one for yarn and a larger one for material and any other crafty bits. The furniture is all white to match the white which we have painted the inside and the chair I’ve ordered is teal to give a pop of colour. I’m planning on adding in some bunting and other homemade bits to bring out different colours. 

I think it will still take a couple of months to have everything the way I want it as my ultimate craft cabin/childfree me time space but for now I’m just going to be very excited that I can start a much needed declutter and organisation.
