Craft Dungeon 2

I’ve done a little more work to my craft dungeon in the last few days.
I actually was working on the wrapping station area and came up with a few neat ideas and some ideas I ripped off of Pinterest.
The first idea was this..

Take a 97 cent curtain rod and turn it into this..

It works out great as a wrapping paper holder and I can just roll it right out onto the work surface and cut off what I need to wrap. Perfect! Now I just need to install a couple more for the rest of my wrapping paper.
Then I did this…

Just two peg board hooks and a dowel rod I cut to length and I now have a great place to store my ribbon. Now I have to go round up all the ribbon I have stashed all over so I can have it all in a  central location. Wish me luck.
The next idea was kind of a fluke, but it worked.
I had a plastic shower organizer that was supposed to suction to the wall of the shower. “Supposed to” is the key phrase here, and one day while cleaning the shower I had had enough of it falling off on my head. So, I violently grabbed it up and started to march it to the trash can when I was struck with an idea….

It would make a great little plastic bin for my craft area. It’s now happily holding tape near the wrapping station and it works like a charm.
So here is the wrapping station so far…

It’s looking more like a craft area and less like a dungeon everyday. I have another curtain rod to hang and possible another dowel rod, now that I have gathered my ribbon, but I am well on my way!
This weekend I am tackling the work surface and adding a couple more things to the wrapping area.  Wait until you see what I came up with, I think it’s going to work out great.
 
Happy Saturday.
Love,
Val
