- I was able to get a cabinet and countertop at Habitat for Humanity's ReStore for under $20. I use this cabinet to store my photo props and hold my light setup.
- Since I had recently moved out of my townhouse when I got married, I used my old dresser as a storage area also. I bought the dresser at the Penn State Surplus when I was a senior for $5.
- Also from my previous townhouse, I used the plastic pantry shelves and clear storage drawers to hold additional materials.
- Topping everything off were two sheets of pegboard that I bought at Home Depot for $6 each and some hooks to go on the pegboard.
Now I have an area that I can keep my bead boxes, a place for my light table, and hooks for all of my bead strings. I also do scrapbooking as a hobby, and the shelves provided a perfect place to put those supplies. Everything is organized.
The craft area is a continually-evolving venture, and any ideas or suggestions would be welcome. Do you have a craft area or a craft room that you would like to share? I would love to see it!

P.S. That is my cat, Tiger, who is hiding on the shelf!
