Craftopia-Your Dream Workspace Awaits
By Juanita Reed, guest contributor
Buttons, glue, fancy papers, rubber stamps, ribbons, spools of htread and omre…what do you do with them all? This is truly a crafter’s dilemma!
Have ou ever wished you had a workspace where you could do your painting, sewing or scrapbooking? Are you tired of having your supplies stacked in boxes in a spare room and spending more time setting up a “make-shift” workspace than actually crafting?
Whether you are an artist, craftsperson, seamstress or parent/grandparent that really enjoys inspiring children to create, here is the perfect solution!
Cabinets and Countertops…Not Just for Kitchens Anymore!
With the addition of a few cabinets and a countertop, any room can easily be transformed into the perfect craft work area. If you have the space, you may even choose to include a small utility sink for ease of project clean-up, washing out brushes or maybe to do a bit of potting or flower arranging.
Another consideration may be a pull-out unit which will give you an additional work surface; perfect for a sewing machine, paper cutter or easel, with plenty of extra storage space below. Conveniently, the pull-out work surface rolls back into place and looks like another cabinet when not in use.
You Can Never Have Enough Storage Space
The design experts at Atlantic Design Center can also help customize your work area with specially sectioned drawer inserts, roll-down storage nooks and fabulous slat walls with hardware that allows for all sorts of storage flexibility.
