The last frontier in my craft room ~ the back of the door. I thought I had used every inch of space I possibly could in this small storage room that I took over for my craft room when we moved from Long Island to Ohio 3 1/2 years ago. Well, now I have!
I purchased a canvas shoe organizer with 24 pockets (Amazon.com).
I have loved seeing these pocket organizers, that look like shoe organizers, from fellow bloggers. You can see these, and a few others, on my Pinterest board, Craft Sewing Rooms.

I decided to go the lazy way by using the shoe organizer for my base and embellishing it to get the same look as my inspiration pictures above. I pulled together different trims, laces, napkins, handkerchiefs, fabric scraps, etc., and laid them out on the pockets to see how I wanted them.
Then I just used hot glue to adhere the different embellishments to the pockets or along the sections of the organizer.
I will continue to embellish this as time goes on and I find pieces of trim, fabric and lace that I like and think will look pretty on this organizer.
Meanwhile, for ease of labeling to know what is in each pocket, I used some plain tags I had and an alphabet stamp set for labeling each pocket. I’ll continue to do that as I decide what I want to put in each pocket.
I also used some decorative clothes pins I had in my supplies to clip the tags (tied with string) to the pocket.
I hope to use this organizer for all those little things I pick up at the craft store that I just don’t have a spot for in the drawers. Plus, I don’t want them to get lost by me just sticking them in a random drawer.
This will help me to keep things organized. And in a pretty way!
Now to get the second half done! I’ll share this again once I have the whole thing done.
Kathy, That is supper cute and very useful I do still have the back of my Studio door looks like I will be on the lookout to find something like yours, a base to start with... Gotta Love it!
LOVE the first half. That was a really great idea to purchase a premade one and then dress it up. Can't wait to see the whole thing done.
I think you should call it
The Door-The Last Frontier...lol xo Diana
Love this so much, Kathy! I love how personal you can make this. Thanks for the inspiration! Can't wait to see it all complete.
So cute and very clever!!
I love your idea, Kathy! You found the perfect one to accessorize too. You turned this into a treasure for storage! I know the second half will be equally as cute!
This is so great, Kathy! I love what you are doing! I realized I have an organizer and a place to hang it...and I sure could use more organization! Thanks so much for the inspiration and for sharing!
Kathy this is beautiful... what a great idea! I love that you started out with a store bought one and made it fabulous! :)
piękne! super pomysł! ;-)
Hi Kathy, Love your hanging organizer and the others you share. I have one I made last year and shared in My Creative Space board on pinterest. It was a crocheted style from Ikea.
Yours is a treasure and so useful yet decorative.
Have a great Easter week.
Just love it...amazing what it started out as and how it looks now...looking forward to the other half!
Kathy, your organizer is off to a fabulous start....I will be looking forward to seeing it's completion!
WELL DONE, Kathy! That looks awesome!
Have a blessed Holy Week and Easter Sunday! Hugs!
Wow, how have I missed these in blogland? What a great, creative idea! I absolutely love what you've done so far and can't wait to see the rest!
Hi Kathy! Oh, I love this and what a way to pretty this piece up! You're so good at this and it will be great to see the next part too. Thanks for popping in to see me.
Be a sweetie,
How beautiful, Kathy! This is a great idea. Love the way you are embellishing it!
It looks great so far! Such a smart idea. If I didn't have glass doors on my craft room, I'd definitely do this. We have something like that on N's closet door for all of his stuffed animals. =)
This is a great idea!! Love how you are embellishing yours!
Kathy, What a fabulous and creative idea! LOVE how it is embellished. Who knew a shoe caddy could be so beautiful and useful!
Oh I love this! Yours is just perfect! And thanks for sharing such a collection of other ideas. This is a very inspiring post. Now if only I had a door...

very cute and so useful, kathy! happy easter!
I never knew a shoe caddy could be that pretty and functional! I love how you decorated your and love how you hang the tags using cloths pins. So very pretty and I will be copying this for my craft room makeover. Have to use every inch of space in a small home!
I LOVE your organizer, and what a great idea to use a premade one! I am going to do this! Can't wait to see yours completed. (And I hope you get to have Spring really soon!)
