I can’t believe I pulled this off. In two weeks I managed to reorganize most of my crafting supplies and I now have the perfect craft room.
To be honest, my crafting supplies were in three different places in our home and the stress from it was hindering my crafting abilities. So I decided to move everything up to the third floor! And now I have the perfect work area and craft room and I have already started crafting for fall and the holidays.
Season 3 Volume 33
Thanks for joining me for Sunday Morning Coffee. This is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun. Let’s get started!
The craft room project is about two-thirds done!
I started by cleaning out the 3rd floor which is what we call a mother-in-law suite filled with craft room storage everywhere. In a not-so-organized way.
But I have been working for two weeks and I got rid of the pool table, moved many things downstairs, set up my new Dreambox 2, and added two new rugs!
I also bought a coffee table at the Pottery Barn Outlet yesterday to replace the massive painted coffee table/storage cabinet that weighed hundreds of pounds. It hasn’t quite made it up to the room but it’s light wood and will look great up here.
I love the decor and love working and crafting up here. It is such a different look and feel, and even though the couch is old, it’s a great place to sit!
Just for fun, here are a few BEFORE and RE-ORGANIZING the 3rd-floor photos. Oh my!
You might have noticed that I mentioned I was two-thirds done. What is still left to do?
I have the most amazing craft room storage closet on the 3rd floor and I need to finish reorganizing it!
This photo is not current but it will look like this again when I am done!
And … I have a fun new crafting tool that just arrived this week. It will go on the shelf in the back and I cannot wait to learn how to use it and share my new projects with you!
Any guesses? Stay tuned!
My Latest Project
If you missed my blog post about my new Dreambox 2, then you need to check this out! It is by far the smartest solution for storing your craft items I have ever seen.
It folds up into a cabinet that looks so nice it could fit in any room in your home. How clever is that?
It took about five hours to put together. Create Room does sell a version of the Dreambox 2 that is pre-assembled but it wouldn’t fit up the staircase to our 3rd floor.
Fortunately, I was able to get it assembled thanks to Task Rabbit!
Here it is assembled and ready to be filled in my new craft room!

My Biggest Challenge This Week
You may have heard there is a Tropical Storm heading to Southern California today. It has been about 100 years since we had a tropical storm and 150 years since we had a hurricane in Los Angeles.
I hope it won’t be anything more than a rainstorm but there is a lot of concern about wind, rain, flooding, and power outages. Aargh.
I hope everyone is safe.
Just to be prepared, I drove to Ventura yesterday morning and cleared as much stuff as I could off of our deck at the beach house.
I moved some of the chairs, the umbrella, cushions, and anything that wasn’t a really heavy piece of furniture inside the house.
Let’s hope this all blows over, with very light wind and rain!

Fall arrived this past week! I shared three fall DIY projects which included a ceramic vase, a leaf wreath, and a table runner. Crafting has been on my mind and it was because of the arrival of my Dreambox 2 craft storage closet which I also shared. I had fun with new fall decor in our living room and I shared lots of Q&A about our beach house remodel.
Martha shared 40 Fall Décor Ideas to Get Your Home Ready for Autumn. There are some really great ideas in this blog post!
I have a lot more fun fall items to share this week which include my favorite fall cookies, new fall decor in our family room, my cranberry glass collection, and a fun table centerpiece. I also am sharing how to make copper leaf pumpkins and my favorite fall gluten-free donuts.
