A vintage light fixture can add a unique touch to a space. When hubs built my craft studio in the basement, the main source of lighting was pot lights but I also wanted pendant lighting over my sewing machines for additional task lighting. We chose a pair of Ranarp pendants from Ikea.

This is the fourth in a series of installments on the making of my craft studio.

In part II of The Making of a Craft Studio, I showed you how to use Ikea’s Pax Planner to design a storage solution for your craft studio (see Canadian version and US version here).
Today, I’m going to highlight installing the cabinets, some of the indispensable tools we used in the installation, installation tips specific to drawers and how we adapted an Ikea pullout to work at the bottom of one of our cabinets. I’m also going to show you how I’ve started to use the cabinets to organize all my craft goodies and tools!
Craft studio of dreams; if you build it, she will come!
I couldn’t have designed the storage for my studio without the help of Ikea’s Pax Planner. We’re almost at the finish line with the installation of Ikea cabinets to help corral what was once a messy eyesore in my previous craft studio into an organized storage solution for my new space.
In part two of The Making of a Craft Studio, I’m sharing how I used Ikea’sPax Planner to design the storage solution for my studio (see Canadian version and US version here). Then, in part three, I’ll show you how we built my storage solution and how I organized my craft room using Ikea Komplement interior organizers to customize each Pax Wardrobe! My step-by step tutorial (with tips and tricks) will guide you through how you can do it too!
