8 Reader Space: Crafting Chaos Solved!

Ok my loves.  Are you ready?  Ready for another fantastic transformation accomplished by another fantastic reader?  Seriously, Wednesdays are just rockin' great around here because I always get to share such inspirational organized spaces, done by YOU!

And I promise that once again, you won't be disappointed.  In fact, there are mega amounts of ideas and eye pleasing storage that we all just may go and knock on Lauren's front door and ask to take up residence in her new craft and storage room.

Here are the details:

Lauren had five years worth of teaching and craft supplies all stored in her basement:

 She started out by snagging some great shelving from Ikea:

Then she spent a week and a half going through boxes, throwing things away and adding even more storage, giving her progress that looks like this:

After hours and lots of patience, boxes from IKEA and shelving from Target, she arrived here!

The major purchases that she bought for this space were three Target shelving units that blend together seamlessly on the wall.

All of the green boxes in this space are home to craft supplies. And all labeled of course!

She also used a cheapo plastic waste basket to corral her wrapping papers!

The whole process took her a month, going from this:

To this:

Time to peel that jaw off of the floor and head on over to Lauren's super fab blog and check out more about her transformation and all sorts of other goodies as well!!

And again, THANK YOU Lauren for letting me share the goods here!

So who's inspired?  I know I am!  What's your favorite part?  Can you believe it only took a month?  That's some drive right there!

Anyone else working on a crafty cleanup project?  We would heart to see it, so feel free to link it up this week!

P.S.  Have an awesome story to share?  How about some organizing tips and tricks?  Maybe a project completed from an inspiration found?  Please send your story and photos to and I would heart to feature them right here, on the blog!!
