Since we moved in to this house a few years ago, I’ve been using the smallest bedroom as my office. Unfortunately, I’m a messy person and over time the mess had gotten so out of control that I was working on a small space on the floor.

At one point, I had the room somewhat cleaned up enough to sit at the desk again. That didn’t last long.
|Scenes from the desk area|
On the right side of my desk, I have my vintage dress form and some jewelry hangers. I’m still loading lots of jewelry on them but they are a fun way to keep everything visible. I also like to keep special trinkets and gifts on my desk. They make me happy and keep me inspired!
|New bead storage|
Also to the right of my desk is one of my new bead storage units. These are two Alex units from IKEA stacked and they hold three bead tray inserts in each of them.

I spent several hours emptying all my bead boxes and filling tray inserts. I also have my leather, ultra suede and photo cubes stored in this section.
|More bead and craft storage|
On the other side of the room are even more bead and craft supply storage units. If you’re wondering about the giant pig, it’s a vintage chalkware piggy bank. One of my favorite weird finds.
|Scenes from the cabinets|
This is the area where I keep all my art beads, cabochons, resin, paper crafts, rubber stamps, fabrics, ribbons, millinery and more.

|Organizers and printing area|
I’m still working on getting all my organizers and artwork hung on the walls. There are still shelves waiting to go up and decorative tiles and framed prints. There’s also a pile of boxes on the floor waited to be sorted. Once all of that is taken care of, I’ll be ordering a small recliner and footstool. That will be my place to do bead embroidery or read my craft books.
