All wrapped up

I can't believe that the start of school is approaching. It always has a way of sneaking up on me.  I start to panic when I think of the start of school, because that means that the holidays are just around the corner. For the past few (a lot) of years I have had issues with storing my wrapping paper. With the completion of my craft room, I was determined to have a place to both organize and store all my wrapping supplies. I have seen so many wonderful ideas on pinterest and I was debating on whether or not to incorporate the wrapping station right into the room, or have a separate area for it. I decided to go with a separate wrapping station that I could roll around to any room I want it in since my favorite place to wrap is in my family room in front of a good show.  Here is what we came up with.

We found a wooden microwave cart at Fred Meyer. The price was good, it came with wheels, there were drawers for tape and scissors, and it would be cheaper to buy than making it ourselves.  We put it together, then added the fun touches.

I had this container already for my wrapping paper and we just attached it to the side using jute for the top, and screwed it on the wood on the bottom. Oh yea, the wood came from an extension on the top we weren't going to use.

There was a towel bar that came out of the side. We cut the middle out of it, kept some wood for stops, and it became the perfect bag holder.

Storage in the bottom for boxes and bows.
A drawer for labels, scissors, and tape.
We now have a fun and way functional space to both use and store wrapping supplies. I now have a great solution that I can store away in the closet, pull out when I need to, and have all my wrapping supplies organized and in one place ready to go. Pin It
