{diy gift wrapping station}



I don't know about you, but I can never seen to keep all my gift wrapping goodies in order ... as hard as I try to organize, throw a baby shower and birthday at me and chaos usually quickly returns. I'm currently using a spot in my guest bedroom closet but I am constantly trying to think of better ways. One of my favorite ideas to date comes from Michael Penney and Joel Bray of House & Home: they customized an IKEA Alve secretary bureau with wallpaper and curtain rods, plus a magnetic board and cork board.



The results are fantastic and it looks easy to do, wanna see for yourself? What this video demonstration from the 2011 Interiors Design Show {click on the video to watch!}


Makes me want to run out to IKEA this afternoon and get customizing this lovely piece! Think of all the possibilities!

Nancy, I do wish I was as organised as this. I am always hunting through drawers and cupboards in different areas for the appropriate materials!

This would be so nice if I had the space for it! My wrapping paper is always falling on my head when I open our coat closet.

My wrapping station consists of a drawer for paper & ribbons in hubby's office and the ottoman in the family room - this is a much better set-up! We actually have a spare room in the basement that's currently filled with crap that would make a great little craft/wrapping room. If I could just get my butt in gear and clean it up!

I keep my wrapping stuff in a tupperware in my guest closet too. I would die to have something as pretty and organized as this!

Hi there!
I don't have space for a huge wrapping station - so, I have something similar to this: http://www.containerstore.com/shop/giftPackaging/organizers?utm_medium=feed&productId=10011134&utm_source=google_products&sku=10027211
it works okay... it keeps it all together at least - but it would be so fun to have a real wrapping station!
LOL

I'm such a geek for this stuff. I have my stuff stored in my craft room closet but I need to organize it in a way that is prettier ;) Love the ideas.

Happy weekend, Nancy. You are the best!

ox, Mon
