I NEED HELP! My husband is going to build me a craft room.  It is going to have to be everything I need in case he never gets this generous again.  Now I have been looking at plans, but none of them seem to address all that I need and want.  What things would you HAVE to have?  I don't sew with sewing machine but I knit crochet bead draw and would like to be able to have it all organized.  If you have a room please post a picture so I can get more ideas.  Most of the pictures I have found are sewing rooms or wrapping stations.

 if i had the option to build a craft room i would want a wall of drawers, cupboards and shelves. i currently have 2 desks and a wall of peg board and a dresser and thats all i really need. if you draw you may want a desk or table that tilts. you may want a comfy chair for when you do yarn work. i dunno, what do you "want"?

well lot sof table space and storange areas like shelves and such would be ideal. Especially when ebading you need shelfs to put your organizers on. just lots of room and space to do your stuff on.

there are TONS AND TONS of pictures in this link.  :)

ok, damn my computer is being stupid.  I'll let you how to get there.  type in MSN.com and go there.  See the search bar on the page itself.  Type in pictures of craft rooms.

This first on the list should say     Images of pictures of Crafting rooms.  click on that.  There is close if not over about 100 pictures of all kinds of different craft rooms.  Maybe you can get ideas from these rooms and put together your own.  Hope that helps.   If you can't get to it I'll try to send the link in an email to you.  :)

Shelves and peg boards sound good.
