oh joy studio craft room: before and after!

Color-02-Before-blog

With the move to our new Oh Joy Studio earlier this year, we needed a designated room for making and crafting all the projects that you see here. We have so many supplies that needed to be organized and stored in a way that makes everything easy to find and help the crafting and styling team work as efficiently as possible. We recently invited the IKEA Home Tour Squad into our office to takeover the craft room, and they completely blew my mind. They made the space so much more functional and beautiful—and now it's the room that everyone in the office wishes they worked in. See below for a short video of the complete makeover and more before and afters!

The room is basically set up like a kitchen (without the appliances) which added SO MUCH functionality to a room that needs to hold so many things that are constantly in use.

The open shelving allows us to see everything that needs to be accessed while also storing odd-shaped items like our seamless rolls of paper.

The main work space is set up like a "T" and gives space for active projects in the works as well as a place to put things aside while drying or when working on multiple projects at one time. The combination of overhead and counter cabinets gives multiple options for storage both for everyday storage and for items that need to be tucked away for occasional use.

I can't say enough how much the organization of the space (and all the tiny things that needed a home) has helped us find things and keep everything in its place in a way that we would have never been able to do before. Thanks so much to the IKEA Home Tour Squad team who spent three days at our office working on this project. We had a blast and learned so much from them!
