Buyer's Guide: Craft Furniture

Tips For Building A Functional Craft Room

What exactly is Craft Room Furniture? Craft room furniture is specially designed furniture specifically made for usage in a craft room, usually a recreation room or hobby room. Craft rooms, unlike traditional showrooms, are often large open spaces where customers can test out various new products prior to they are even sold to the public. This means that the possibilities for purchasing and designing this type of furniture are almost limitless.

There are many places in your area where you can find craft room furniture. Your local thrift store will almost always have a wide variety of items from which to choose. Garage sales, too, commonly have a wide variety of used or slightly used products, including some of the most unique pieces ever to enter the private sector. And, at home offices across the nation, some of the newest cutting edge office furniture is often being sold on websites that offer an easy method of purchasing from anywhere in the world.

To get started with crafting, it is best to look into the option of purchasing a simple collapsible craft table rather than one that features a variety of drawers, shelves, or other decorative accessories. These tables are designed to collapse or flip up when not in use. Because of this, there is no need for additional furniture, including chairs, to be put together with these collapsible tables. In fact, putting together a "working" craft space may require no more than a table and a few chairs.

Another unique item that can be found at garage sales and craft rooms is a rafflecopter machine. The idea behind these rafflecopters is to allow participants to create a high-quality video game by utilizing the "crowdsourcing" process. In other words, individuals who participate in the rafflecopter drawing are asked to put together a clip art or photograph of a special item they would like to see in a video game. The machine then creates a raffle ticket that gives people who purchase the tickets for a chance to win a special item. Often these items can include a new Nintendo Wii system or other high-end gaming console.

After selecting two or three items from the different sets of items that can be purchased in the rafflecopter drawing, it is important to begin the actual crafting project. Typically, people will make a selection of the type of items they want to put together their craft space. Then they will go down to the local store to choose the items from the as-is section. At this point, it is wise to review the description that is included with the items sold in the as-is section. This will provide a clear indication of how long the items have been made, whether any refurbishing is necessary and if the pieces are guaranteed or not.

Once people have found the types of items they want to create a craft space from, they must complete a shopping list. This shopping list will include the materials needed to create the piece(s) listed. Without this list people will run into a lot of problems while trying to create a functional storage wall for their craft space. The shopping list should also include measurements for the size of the storage wall. By using clear tape measure, this step can be completed very quickly.

The next step is to purchase the materials needed to construct the storage area. Since most people do not have the amount of money needed to purchase the materials needed to build a full-functioning craft room, many people opt to create functional but aesthetically appealing shelves instead. Many companies will sell basic but functional shelves at a very affordable price. However, most of these storage shelves are still considered as-is and may need to be assembled in order to be used. If a person does not feel comfortable putting together an as-is shelving unit, many companies will gladly assemble a shelving unit for an additional cost. Assembly-kit shelving units are typically sold separately but can usually be purchased as part of a larger set of craft storage furniture.

Once all the parts for the storage system are assembled the shelves should be attached to the wall and the plastic "arm" that run across the top of the shelves should be attached to a wall bracket. The shelves will then be attached to the wall and the plastic "arm" should be attached to the other wall stud. The entire assembly should be held in place using some type of weight. In order to ensure that the shelves are stable the entire assembly should be attached to two strong walls.
