My craft room

I took these pictures a while back, to show you where I create. I know, you are asking, "what do you create?" I have had full intentions for MONTHS now to get some jewelry listed for sale, I have lots of pieces to show you...but so little time....this summer it is definitely a pet project of mine to get pieces photographed and online at icraft.ca, etsy.com and a new site that I have joined and not participated in, artfire.com

Anyway, so here are some pics of where the magic happens....



My Wall of beads! I know, I know, I have way more beads than I'm ever going to use.....perhaps I should sell some of them! I used to store everything in beadboxes -- small opaque containers, however I find this setup soooo much easier for a visual person like me!!!



And of course I need some jars of beads too....these are all the vintage and leftover beads I have been collecting..it's like candy!



Everything is stored in these boxes from IKEA....an organizers paradise! All my wool is stored down below, miscellanous stuff up above:



More kitchen gadgets -- this time lazy susans -- holding all my Swarovski pearls and stones. And of course a TV, because if you know me at all you know I watch a LOT of TV!



And lastly, an easy way to store my tools -- handy and at my fingertips:

I love the way you organize your beads!!! Where did you get the racks and clear containers for the beads?

I absolutely love your craft room. I was at a loss to how to organize my beads until I saw your craft room. Please post where you purchased your bottles and racks. Thank you SO Much!

I bought all the containers at Solutions, it's an organizing store here in Canada - HOWEVER,not long after I purchased all those jars (they are glass jars) I found them at a local dollar store for 1/2 the price. The racks were also purchased at solutions, so I would check your local organizing stores, or online.

I really like your craft room !So organized. I was wondering if you know the ikea name of your boxes, as I have been trying to find them in that lovely pink but have had no luck. I have come to the conclusion that they must not sell them anymore so was going to look on eBay for them but I don't know the name of them.
Hope you can help!

They don't sell them anymore! That was 2009 when I took those pictures, IKEA discontinued those boxes unfortunately!! You are right, Ebay may be the place to go.
