    how to make a functional craft room in a guest room

    We are building a new house. Once again my husband built a workshop into the garage and left me the guest room for crafts. I am looking for a way to make a functional craft working area and still maintain a useable guest room. The room has plenty of closet space. I was looking for something like murphy bed...a craft table the folds out of the closet into the room. I sew, scrapbook, and stamp mostly. I love just about any type of craft and have any storage boxes filled with supplies, patterns, paints, odds and ends. I have a second closet for storage of those items.
    Does anyone have an idea that works for them?

    I think using the large closet space would be an awesome idea. Why not take stock of what your craft supplies are, and from there, you can figure out how best to organize that closet. You could build a craft table right in the closet and put shelves and bins overhead, for instance. Just leave a small section at the end of the closet for you guests to use, or even invest in a small armoire.
    Wish I had a guest bedroom I could use for my sewing!

    you can also get a fold out craft table or cabinet. sauder has some inexpensive ones and joann has higher-end stuff. they're great b/c they store tons of stuff, have tons of workspace but then fold back into nice-looking furniture that doesn't look messy or anything when you have guests. then you can get organizers and bins and stuff in the closets for storage.
