As I look around my house to find ways to get my crafting self better organized this year, I keep going back to a large IKEA bedroom wardrobe I bought well over 10 years ago. I remember my excitement when I stumbled upon the fully assembled piece in the scratch and dent section of the IKEA “tool” section of the store (literally this is a corner of the store where they have tools secured to walls by chains). I began the long process of dissembling the wardrobe until it was in several smaller pieces, only to bring it back home to reassemble it all again!
This memory is so clear in my mind, that I doubt I’ll ever be able to give this piece away. Now many years later, I no longer need it to store my clothes. However, it has loads of storage and would make for the perfect organization solution in my craft room. It just needs a few adjustments, otherwise known as hacks!
