Craft corner reveal

Revealing my almost finished craft corner/classroom closet. I've converted the closet in our guest room into a workstation filled with all our crafting, drawing, sewing, scienceing (so not a word) and keeping-children-busy-while-mom-folds-laundry... Um... Ing.

The kids side of the table.
Foam stickers and shapes can keep your kid busy enough to fold all 5 baskets of clothes you've left until someone ran out of pants to wear. And if not, a tub filled with baking soda and a squeeze bottle with colored vinegar keeps mine entertained forever! I wash and reuse the plastic containers meat comes in for this, usually.

My side has sewing stuff, tapes, various cutting instruments, and my oh-so-handy glue gun. actually, I have 2, because I didn't USED to have a dedicated craft space and I lost 1 of them for awhile. Yeah... the savings of having everything in one place!

That first row of baskets on the shelf hold different as-yet-unfinished projects. Because I have the attention span of a goldfish and I'm always starting something new, heh.

Mommies side, where I do all my sewing.
Next to the closet I have my 6 foot banquet table I use for folding clothes. Underneath the table I keep a big basket where all socks go. When it's full I sit and sort them. I find this easier than doing it with each basket of laundry since we have, like 10 different kinds of white socks. Why???

Lastly we have our guest bed, which gets used frequently. When family is 3000 miles away they tend to stay for a long visit. We probably have some family member or another here 2 months total out of the year!

Having power at your fingertips is awesome.
How do you multipurpose infrequently used rooms?
tape measure along the table for easy fabric measuring.
