MHCT&M: Art Stations for Kids

Happy Friday, friends!

 

It’s time for a new room in the house to talk about.

We’ve covered most of the main rooms in the house. This month we’re focusing on an extra space that you may have, or may want to have: a playroom!

 

  

 

In our home we have a bonus room which is a large room over our garage. It’s basically a multi-purpose space for anything we want! It’s currently serving many purposes. It holds my craft space, acts as a spare bedroom (fold out couch), game room, random storage, AND a playroom for my little boys! It’s not easy having a space that functions as so many things but we manage to make it work. 

 

Today, I am choosing to focus on art stations for playrooms and, let me tell you, there are ALL kinds! Big or small, as long has a child has a space to create, I think they are happy. 

 

 

Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!
 

Pegboard Art Station 

 I love the pops of color on this monochromatic art station. I also love how all of the craft supplies are up off the table leaving more room for creating! 

 

Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!
 

Art Cart 

This is a great idea if you don’t have a dedicated space for art supplies. Making them mobile allows your child to create anywhere! 

 

Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!
 

 Art Crafting Space 

All needed art supplies are within arms reach in this colorful art space. 

 

Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!
 

 Art Corner 

This narrow art space uses height to it’s advantage. 

 

Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!

 

 Murphy Art Desk 

A DIY fold-down desk is a great way to save space in a room! 

 

Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!
 

Craft Caddie 

This mobile craft caddie is a great way to pick up and go create outdoors or even at a friend’s house!

 

 Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small! 

Craft Shelves 

I’m a big fan of bins for supplies and these shelves full of crafty bins look perfect for little ones!

 

 Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small! 

Crafter-noon Corner 

Not only does this space have a cute name, but the art space is so colorful and fun! I mean, that stool??? Yes, please!

 

 Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small! 

Craft Station Nook 

This is a brilliant use of space. You should see the before (hint, it was not a closet!).

 

 Create an art station in your playroom, even if the space is small!
 

 Giant Cork Board Display 

With all of the artwork your little one is creating, they naturally need a place to display it. I love that this art space comes with it’s own giant cork board for displaying art!

  

 

 

Aren’t these all so fun? And so many ideas no matter the space you have (or don’t have!). 

 

 

Must Have Craft Tips & More! 

 

 

Don’t miss next week when we share more fun ideas for a playroom!

House Update: Craft Room Reveal

Today’s the day! 
After 3 yrs of living in our house, I am FINALLY revealing my craft room with all of you! 
And let’s be honest, if our house wasn’t on the market, I have no idea if I ever would have gotten around to sharing my room with you even though I have wanted too because the room was always crazy, unorganized mess! 
 Would you like to see what I am talking about?
I shared this photo on Instagram last year before I decided I needed to do a massive purge and organize this room. Granted, this was at its worse because a suitcase full of stuff wasn’t always in the room. I took these shortly after returning home from SNAP and I had my suitcase in there waiting for me to empty all the swag.
But anyways…. everything was a mess! Every surface was covered, the floor was covered, it was ridiculous! 
Before I show you the room, let me show you what it looked like when we bought the house. 

The walls were painted a light baby blue with carpet on the floor.
This room was used as a guest room by the previous owners but I definitely had other plans as soon as I saw it.
Now let me show you what the room looks like today and all clean! 
My craft room is nothing fancy and over the top but I have loved having this space and a designated room where I could actually close the door. haha
As you step into the room, this is your view. 
White cabinet to the right, large hutch straight ahead, table to the left along with lots of other storage options and that other door it my large closet.
Stepping in and to the left, is a large white cabinet that is full of stuff!
Next to the cabinet, I have a small table with our printer on it with some art work I painted on the wall above.
 On top of the cabinet I have some fun little projects that I created and this frame for a little encouragement for this room.
Swinging around to the left is my large hutch. You may recognize this piece from past posts on our house or photos on Instagram and it was previously painted beige. When I started my whole craft room purge, I finally got around to repainting it to this super fun bright teal and I LOVE this pop of color in the room.
 This piece is the perfect place for my cutting machines as well at tons of supplies and even some decor items.
I have a large walk in closet in this room. It is under the stairs but it has a large amount of shelves and still tons of space for lot of things. I have a small cabinet in the closet along with way too much stuff. haha Past projects, fabric totes, boxes with old memories, supplies and so much more! 
I even have a side where I have wrapping paper hanging and a tote full of gift wrap supplies. 
See! I told you this closet was huge! 
Right outside the closet, I have my small little painted bird shelf I made years ago and it holds canvases, embroidery hoops, small pallets, and then I have a tv sitting on top of it. 
I use a large, long folding table as my craft table in the room. I always had/have the best intention to make it cute by adding a skirt but I’ve never been able to get around to it. But it works great at a work space for me. I have a carousel on the end full of scissors, pens, markers, glue glue, rulers, and tons more along with a small tool box, paper pads, and baby wipes. 
On the left side of my room as you walk in is this large storage cube system, along with a roller cart and decorations.
I bought this rolling cart at Michael’s and have paint, markers, canvases, and some random supplies on it.
I had a small little space between the door and the storage cubes and this cart fit in perfectly in that little space so it doesn’t end up as a drop zone for clutter.
I’ve had these storage cubes for year and I still love them! They hold scrapbook paper, paint, painting supplies, glitter, glue, and well, you can probably name it and it is somewhere in this area. lol
I created a gallery wall above the storage cubes and just went surfing my craft room and house for items that I already owned to put on it. I love how it turned out with it’s mix of projects I’ve created, photos, and quotes to keep me motivated in my space.
Then, between the storage cubes, and the window wall, I have this small shelf with more supplies. On each side I have some canvases I’ve painted or are waiting to be painted. Not really the most ideal spot for these but they are out of the way so it works. 
Lastly, here is a shot of my curtains. They are one of my favorites things in this room. 
I actually bought two sets of these curtains on Joss and Main but have seen them on other sites as well and since they are actually too short for the windows they are on, and the fact that I love them so much, they are coming with us when we move. haha
And if you noticed the rug in the room I bought that at Wayfair and I love it as well.
 So that’s my craft room reveal in a nut shell! 
Like I said, nothing super crazy and over the top but I love this space and will miss it when we move!

Hello friends and welcome to another Friday of tips and tricks that we love to share with you.

 

 

Kara from Mine for the Making here and this week I am sharing Paint Storage Ideas! 

 

I am really in the mood to purge and organize all the things, but it’s much simpler and less overwhelming if I break it down into rooms or categories. 

So today, my focus is on organizing my paint collection, and maybe it’s something you need to organize too!  

 

 

 

There are all kinds of ways to organize and store your paint. 

The key is finding what works for you and your space. 

Here are some really great ideas to inspire you to organize your paint collection too! 

 

  

 Color coordinate your paints in a crate that has different compartments.

 

  

 Store paints in buckets or baskets. Step it up a notch more and hang them on the wall. 

 

 

  Use a dresser to store your paints! You can add dividers or baskets if necessary. 

 

 

 Hang your paint from the wall by making these PVC and wire shelves!

 

  

 This fold down desk is pretty cool and even has paint storage built right in. 

 

 

  Photo boxes are great for storing smaller bottles of paint.  

 

 

  A hanging shoe storage bag for spray paint? Genius!

 

  

  Spice racks can hold paints as well! 

 

 

  This DIY rolling paint storage is really cool and convenient for small spaces.  

 

 

 DIY shelves or a hutch works great for paint storage too. 

Be sure to measure your paint bottles and cans so you make your shelves the right height! 

 

 

And there you have it, friends! Ten different ways to inspire you to organize and store you paint in a more convenient way for you. 

 

Do you have any other paint storage ideas? We’d love to hear from you!

All About SNAP Storage + GIVEAWAY

Happy Tuesday everyone! 
 I am so excited to share this post with you today. 
Have you heard of SNAP Storage from We R Memory Keepers
 Do you want to know why I am so excited about it? 
Beside the fact that it is an awesome storage system for ribbon, washi tape and embellishments, my dear sweet, talented, and handsome hubby CREATED it!! 
Yep! He looked at my crazy stash of ribbon and my horrible way of storage and set out to design something for me as a birthday gift. 
This is what he came up with and after teaming up with American Crafts and We R Memory Keepers, the SNAP Storage line was born! 
How fun is that?! 
You can say that I am just a little proud of him, just a little. 😉
 So today I just wanted to take the time so share a little bit about SNAP with all of you.
There are a few different ways you can buy SNAP Storage.

There is a starter kit that comes with one bar and ribbon holders in 3 sizes.
 The ribbon holders fit small, medium, and large rolls of ribbon. You can easily slip them onto the holder and if you want to take them off, just pull it on off.
You can easily pull the ribbon and cut to the length that you want while on the spool or just take it down if you need more.
You can buy just the bars, which come in a pack of 2.
Screws and wall anchors are included in the kit but you could also use command strips on the back of the bars as well.
There are 3 different size holders for washi tape. And the 3 different sized ribbon holders are also sold like this. 
 Small, medium, and large holders as well for washi tape.
You can pull the washi tape just like the ribbon and cut the the length that you would like.
And lastly, there are the little storage containers that come 3 to a box.
Perfect for small little embellishments like beads, buttons, brads, clothes pin, whatever!
The lid of the containers just pop open so you can easily fill or get to what is inside.
All items slip over the bar with little brackets on the back so you can easily remove them to rearrange the if you’d like. 
TIP:
If you have trouble removing brackets from the bar, such as it is pulling on the bar, take everything off the bar and take the bar off the wall and flip it over. We found that there is one edge of the bar that tends to hold onto the hooks a little more than the other. Don’t want to break the hook piece if you pull to hard!
I currently have the whole system up on the wall in my new craft room, but I will definitely be buying more of the ribbon holders because I have SO MUCH MORE ribbon than washi tape.
If you can’t find these in stores yet, don’t worry, they are coming!! 
I know some online craft stores already have them in stock but stores should be receiving their shipments any day now! 
And, be sure to check out We R Memories YouTube video all about SNAP storage to see it live in action.
Now, how would you like to win a set of SNAP Storage?!

Enter below and GOOD LUCK!!!
