I'm presuming since you want a craft corner, you are reasonably handy. Check freecycle, thrift shops, friends who are spring-cleaning, and the roadsides in your town for old bookcases, chests, desks -- anything you can use to claim your space and organize it, either as is, with some degree of work, or use to kitbash into things you can use. Of course, if you are really ambitious on this, refinish it all to match. If your staked out area is big enough, use several reclaimed desks, or those 2' tall filing cabinets, and a 4'x8' piece of 3/4 board as your workspace. Ugh stupid word limit here.
