It’s time for the second installment of the Craft Room Challenge! Week one was all about cleaning our messy craft surfaces and this week is all about the results and purging, but I’m spending this week building my peg board and paint shelves!

If you missed week one’s mini clean up challenges, below is an image of the daily tasks and a recap of what I’ve done. I managed to do all of the challenges and now have a clean craft table! I also unloaded a bunch of bags that I had in the dining area and was able to group ‘like’ craft items together, which has allowed me to see how much of each item I have and think of ideas on how I want to store each item.

Here are some sneak peeks of my craft room challenge accomplishments…

It still looks pretty rough, but I’ve cleared off the huge pile that was on the table, bought two new storage cubbies, will be patching the wall, and hung up all my stencils.

  1. I love what you’ve accomplished so far and I really can’t wait to see your peg board solution next week. I have seen so many fab ideas and I was thinking about getting one, too, when I have a dedicated craft room one day.
