Craft Room - Clients Home - Gift Wrap Center

My brother, Jered and his wife Jaycee hired me to come into their home and create some organizational solutions for many spaces in their home.

We actually worked as a TEAM, putting in some really long hours, accomplishing a TON in just a few days. I think I failed to mention the fact that we were working as a TEAM back in that laundry room post. I apologize, Jered & Jaycee! They worked SO HARD! and I think we made a pretty great team :)  If you missed their laundry post, you can view it {here.}

 Another space that we redid was the craft room/gift wrapping room. 

I'm posting this room in 2 segments:  'the gift wrap center' and  'the craft supply center'  {yeah, that's how much is packed into this tiny room - it requires two posts.}

Jaycee emailed me with her desires for this room. She says:  "I envision this place to be a small room with wrapping paper, ribbons, sewing machine, scissors, glue gun, wire and other crafty things that can be easily accessible. I want a place that I can run into to wrap a gift quickly, or somewhere that I can do a craft and if I need to leave it out I can just close the door. Maybe peg boards? It also houses the printer. " 

 This is PART 1 of the finished room:

Taking into consideration the part of Jaycee's email regarding the wrapping paper & ribbon, this is the gift wrap center that was created.

Back in the laundry room post, I told you to remember that Ikea shelf? This is it, folks!   By removing some of the shelves and adding some cafe curtain rods we turned it into a tissue paper and ribbon holder.  I love using things within a persons home, and creating a whole new purpose for it.
This is what the space looked like before:
Behind that tiny door is attic space, where most of the supplies were.
FIRST: we created a place for wrapping paper:
After spray painting a couple pieces of 1 x 2 wood, Jered attached them to the wall
and attached cafe curtain rods {which remove easily} to hold the rolls of paper.
 A few necessities hanging nearby.
WE ALSO created a place for tissue paper and ribbon, wrapping the tissue paper on child size clothes hangers, as Jaycee wanted to be able to grab a piece of tissue paper easily and didn't want it tucked away inside a box. We also added rows of those same cafe curtain rods to hold spools of ribbon.
This is the tissue paper - I L.O.V.E. the rainbow of colors! So Pretty!
A closer look at the rods.
We gave her a place for gifts that she has on hand.
and a place for boxes and . . .
a place for bags and . . .
a place for cards and tags - this one is an accordion file box. . .
Inside are separate sections for all occasions, and the cards & tags are organized here.

Here is the side by side before and after of the gift wrap center:
View the other side of the room HERE. It covers the rest of her desires for the room. You'll be truly amazed at how much can be packed into such a little space.
