So your family has a Craft Desk, and now you are looking for an accessory to add to it. You have come to the right place. Here are my top ideas for the perfect Craft Desk. The first step is acceptance; you have to accept that your craft room will have a desk. Now here is a great solution: DIY Craft Desks;
Why not make your own customized craft desk with built-in shelves? First, you can have your choice of materials. Next, it is very simple and fun for your kids. Plus, it allows you to keep your kids interested in their crafts.
How about a roll-out desk that converts into a table when you pull the top out? How about portable storage bins to hold craft supplies or books. Create a drawer or storage area on the side as drawers can be very functional when you need them. Make it weatherproof to protect the wood. Add a lamp or two and some flowers or potted plants. Add a stool or bench, and you have a very beautiful craft desk!
Suppose you are like most people you have a "junk" closet full of odds and ends. A Craft Tabletop is an inexpensive, easy-to-use, and decorative surface to store not only your craft supplies but also your junk. Craft Tabletops come in several materials, including metals, glass, wood, and combinations of materials. Here are some more ideas for decorating your tabletop:
An armoire to match your Craft Desk with your Craft Corner. This type of DIY project is a combination of a tabletop and a dresser. Use leftover articles from the dresser to make new shelves for your craft desk. Use wire to construct your shelf brackets and attach them to the studs in your walls. Then install your shelves, if they were previously, inside the armoire.
You can use a scrap wooden board to add a little decoration to your Craft Desk or to help it fit better in your home. Craft Corner Cubbies are perfect for any craft desk. There are many sizes, shapes, and styles of craft cubbies to choose from at your local craft supply stores and online. Purchase extra cubbies when you run out of the ones you were using, or purchase a whole set. Use these extra cubbies in addition to your regular drawers, or use them as holders for small knick-knacks such as buttons or beads.
Add color and character to your Craft Desk by decorating it with colorfully framed wall art. Buy pictures to frame and hang on the wall of your Craft Desk. Decorating a Craft Corner with pictures will make your workspace more appealing and give it character. Another craft desk accessory that is inexpensive is an attractive set of rugs over the tabletop.
Craft tables are wonderful additions to any home or office where crafters gather to practice their craft. A craft desk gives crafters a place to set up their workspace and display their finished products. A well-designed craft desk makes working on a table a nice, comfortable experience, not only because of the table's structure and function but also because the owner knows exactly how to organize his or her supplies and keep everything neat and orderly. A Craft Desk is a valuable investment in your home and your craft.
An online search will result in hundreds of suggestions for building or designing a DIY desk. An easy way to compare and contrast the many plans is to find an online photo gallery and see the photos side by side. If you need more help deciding on a craft corner or other DIY project, there are many good books and magazines dedicated to the craft.
If you decide on building your own Craft Desk, there are many plans available. Some include a diagram of the dimensions of the table and the amount of space you have to work with. Make sure the measurements and design are flexible enough to allow room for your current supplies and your future plans for adding new supplies. The best tables have adjustable shelves for easy storage of different size craft supplies.
Once you have decided on a craft table and have selected a plan, read all of the instructions carefully before you start. It is a good idea to have someone help you with the construction process and to keep track of your progress. A craft table is a great addition to any home and can be used for many years. Whether you make just one chair or a whole sewing area, your new craft table will add craftsmanship and elegance to your home. This versatile piece of furniture will increase your enjoyment of crafting and storing your supplies. It is a craft that everyone should consider adding to their home.
