If you're just starting out setting up a craft nook of your own, then congrats! It's going to be the happiest place on Earth. Here's a little list I've put together with some great items to help get you started. — Natasha from Little Pink Monster
Melltorp/Marius Table and 2 Stools, White/Blue - $61.97
This table and two stools from Ikea is a super affordable option for a tight space. I love the pop of color the stools bring.
Sharkey Gray Corner Craft Table - $319
Of course, if you want something made by the expert, Martha Stewart's furniture is the way to go. I love this table for a corner sewing station.
Trofast Storage Combination, White, Multicolor - $175.96
This storage unit is great because it adds some pops of color to your room, and the differently sized bins are perfect for holding all of your craft supplies.
Up Against the Wall Shelf, Bin and Paper Holder, White - $19.95
Sometimes it can be nice to have a designated area for your kids in your workroom. That way, they can create alongside of you.
I Could've Bin a Container, Art Caddy - $21.95
I just love these colorful caddies for holding pens, markers, paintbrushes — whatever.
White & Distressed Oak Kitchen Island With Drop Leaf - $749
If you really want to go for it with your crafting corner, consider a kitchen island. The counter height is excellent for standing while crafting, and the storage options are perfect.
Beldin Craft Table, Whitewashed - $189.98
This inexpensive craft table has lots of storage options, and I love the paper roll on the side — such a great idea.
Picket Fence Collapsible Craft Table - $499
I'm a big fan of this collapsible table. If you have a small space, you can just pop up the sides when you need them.
Martha Stewart Living Craft Space Eight-Drawer Flat-File Cabinet, Cement Gray - $399
If you're a scrapbooker, these extra-long drawers are perfect for storing oversize paper.
Saralisa Fabric - $8.99
I'm planning on making a table skirt out of one of these great Ikea fabrics to hide all of my bulky supplies under the table. They are nice and heavy, which is great because durability is a must. Of course, the price is also amazing because it's Ikea.
Snille Swivel Chair, Pink - $24.99
I have this hot pink swivel chair at my sewing desk. I love that pop of happy color every time I see it.
Bjursta Bar Table - $149
Personally, I like working on a bar- or counter-height table, like this one from Ikea. I do most of my work while standing, so a nice high table comes in handy.
Nuvo Lighting Warehouse Shade RLM Pendant, Red
I just adore what these warehouse pendants can add to a space. The pop of color and industrial style are such a nice complement to the prettier, girlier items you might have.
Once More With Felting Storage Collection - $18.95
If your storage containers are going to be in plain sight, why not make them pretty?
Spontan Magnetic Board, Silver Color - $12.99
I have three of these magnetic boards on the wall in my craft room. I use them along with magnetic hooks to keep my scissors within easy reach. I attach inspiration pictures or patterns I'm working with to them, and I also have magnetic containers holding small items like safety pins. For me, they're must-haves.
Vika Amon/Vika Lerberg Table - $35.99
I have seen so many people take this ridiculously cheap table and make it into a beautiful statement piece. I saw one with bronze-painted legs, and it looked so chic with the lacquer tabletop.
Sereno Rabbit Rabbit Bookend - $62
When styling books on your shelves, a colorful and fun bookend can really give the shelf some style.
Kantek Acrylic Stapler - $19.01
Even a stapler can use a bit of style. This acrylic version is so fantastic.
Neodymium Hook Magnets - $12.99
These hooks are hardcore. Hang your heaviest scissors or other crafting tools on these, and they're not going anywhere. They have really come in handy for me.
Three By Three Seattle Slim Mighties Square and Circle Magnets - $11.16
These magnets are great for your magnet board because they can stick through up to five sheets of paper. But please be careful to keep them out of reach of little ones, as they can be super dangerous if swallowed.
Top Box Storage Collection - $7.95
These candy colors are downright delicious looking. No need to hide these!
Tejn Faux Sheepskin, White - $9.99
Just for a touch of luxe, I have this sheepskin tossed over the back of my chair. Little things like this can make all the difference in how a room feels.
Household Essentials Silver Tabletop Mini Ironing Board
A tabletop ironing board that can stow away easily when not in use is definitely a must-have on my list.
Pröjs Desk Pad - $5.99
I seriously cannot get enough of these mats. I not only keep two in my kitchen for kids' tabletop art projects, but also use them in my office to protect my work surface. They're cheap and easy to clean, and they have enough of a thick gel-like texture to cut on. I love them!
Levolor Kirsch Heavy Duty Curtain Rod, White - $2.76
I use these curtain rods to hold my ribbon spools.
