My New Craft Closet

So it's not quite the weekend, but I was close!  :)  I wanted to show you the before, during and after pics of my new under-the-stairs craft closet.  I had to try and purge a ton of craft items to fit as much as I could in my closet, so my guest room can really be a guest room.  I am still storing a lot of my paper and larger kits in the guest room closet.  I haven't sorted through all the designer paper yet. 

In case you forgot what my 'before the move' pictures looked like.  As you can see, I was a bit preoccupied with life.  I had a lot of time to create a mess, but no time to clean... I guess.
My Utah craft closet...  It was actually still pretty organized.
My new storage closet... Trying to see how the different sized items fit.
First try.  I liked the space that I had in front of my 9 shelf unit, but I new I had a lot more stuff to store...
Added my 9 drawer unit and thought it fit perfectly!  I still have room next to it to get to the shelves behind it on the left.
I am finally happy to be #verticallychallenged!  I can still get to everything!
Everything is stored and now labeled! 
 I love pink and washi tape, so I had some fun with that and my label maker.
I still love my ribbon and wheel holder that my original up-lines husband made me.  I don't have a lot of wheels anymore, but it can store items like washi tape, too.  Thanks again, Zane Bowerman!!
Using the inside of my door to hang my aprons, convention tags, and even one of my convention bags!
I love my little teacher cabinet, so I thought it would look cute in the corner.
Guess what!  My cabinet was the perfect size to store my Stampin' Up! ink pads and I can add the extras inside!  I love how my other ribbon/wheel/washi tape holder looks above it!
Okay... here is my desk before I started sorting through all my bins.  Pretty clear... for about a second.
Just so you don't think that everything was organized...  We are hoping to contact the people who put in our cabinets in the rest of the house to add matching cabinets above my crafting desk.  I'm hoping my 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock can fit inside, so I can clear that off my desk eventually.
Now... I was lucky enough to get my husband to take me to IKEA yesterday to buy some bookshelves for our guest room and look what else I found... A pink shelf unit!  I even put it together myself.  So proud!  I also added some more pink boxes to fill with fun planning accessories.  Can you tell what my favorite color is?  #ILovePink!!
Well, what do you think?  I still have some work to do in the guest room to get it all organized with my teacher items and other crafting paper/kits.  I will try to show you some pics of that room when I am done.  Hopefully tomorrow!  You can always see my pics on Instagram @chattymamav
Have a fabulous week!!
