Craft Closet: part 2

We have made some progress – yippee!!

However, I must say that having a day off in the middle of the week does help out. Therefore, I am hesitant to say when the next ‘update’ will be since our weekend is jam packed and we leave for vacation in 9 days (so exciting). I guess what I’m really saying is… don’t get to excited to see any after photo’s anytime soon.

So here’s where we are: (and to keep you updated, read this post for part 1 of our craft closet project)

Here is the HH original plan for the craft closet. Keeping it simple and giving me the most usable space possible.

And for a better visual of what we are hoping to achieve here is a quick digital plan I did. We will be replacing the upper shelf and putting a deeper shelf in its place. There will be one long continuous desk top area. This area will serve as a big space for whatever project(s) I am on and as a home for my laptop (hip hip hooray). There will be three boxes under the desk area. These will be dual purpose in the design: support and storage. The center one will be wider that the ones on the ends and eventually we will put adjustable shelving in them to make them more versatile.  The design is very basic but I think it will be totally functional. And we can add/change as we go and as we see fit… shockingly I already have a few new ideas! :)

I decided to do the closet in a fun & cheerful yellow paint. I really love how the yellow pops with the Peacock Blue that the bedroom is already painted in.

We purchased Birch wood by the sheet at Home Depot. We used 3/4″ x 4 x 8 sheets and cut them to our desired sizes. For example, my desktop will be 24″ deep (so no cutting required for the depth part of the desk top or for the sides of the support boxes under the desk… keeping it simple).

Making progress. Sean was able to cut all the pieces for the boxes. The desk top is ready and I lightly sanded everything. Now we need to assemble, but that’s for another day. We are pooped!
