How to Create a Wrapping Station-Perfect for Holiday Gift Wrapping
Hey Friends! I’m so glad that you are here today. Can you believe that we are thinking about the Holidays already? Stores are filling their shelves with Christmas decor and advertisers and magazines are gearing up for holiday sales and inspiration. Yikes! Does that strike some fear into you? It does in me. Have you ever dreamed of having everything that you need for gift wrapping in one convenient spot? Everything right where you need it? I can’t tell you how many times I have had to search for scissors or tape or a box to put my gift in? Today, I’m going to show you how I created a gift wrapping station.
Do you remember me telling you about creating a Butlers Pantry in my laundry room? You can see that post here. Originally, I had all of my wrapping stuff in my laundry room, not well organized and stuffed into cabinets. Well, when I changed my laundry room into a butlers pantry, I had to find a new spot for my wrapping supplies. I decided that I would put it in my sewing/craft room. Again, things were not well organized and the cabinets were full.
Here is the “before”picture of my sewing/craft room-minus the mess. On the plus side, this room has great cabinets, loads of counter space and great lighting.
This room was fine and it served it’s purpose well, but I knew that I could make it do so much more. Look at all of that wasted wall space.
The first thing that I did was to clear out the entire room. You can imagine what my basement looked like with all of the stuff from my laundry room and now all of the stuff from my sewing room. It was quite a mess to have to sift through. See the video below to see the complete process.

I wallpapered the walls to give the room some interest, warmth and character. It made such a huge difference. You can get the wallpaper here. Then I added six of these awesome wire baskets. They hold so much in them. The top three baskets hold my gift bags and the bottom three hold my rolls of gift wrapping paper and shipping supplies. You can get the baskets here. These baskets would work as well.
This is my favorite area of the whole room. The ribbon storage is amazing! I love that it holds so many spools of ribbon and I can use the ribbon without taking it off of the rack. You can get this ribbon sorage rack here. This storage rack was silver when I got it, I spray painted it black to coordinate with all of the other black storage items. I also added four of these smaller wire storage baskets to hold additional gift wrapping supplies. Get these wire storage baskets here. They baskets come in all shapes and sizes-the options are endless.
Think out of the box when it comes to organization. You can literally use anything to store your supplies in. I am keeping my scissors, pens and tape in this vinatge storage container. It looks like it was made out of three tin cans glued together with a handle on top. Here are some fun options here, here and here.
Well, my friends, that’s it! I sure hope that you enjoyed this post, if so, please Pin It!
I am remodeling my office this week, so I thought that I would share some great office items with you.

Check out this lovely Hancock Park Estate. This airy, sun-filled home was originally a Tudor house comprised of small, dark rooms built in 1925, before the era of modern indoor-outdoor living that California is known for. Interior walls were removed to create a more gracious floor plan, and invited in the natural light by replacing nearly all the doors and windows with iron & glass. It was about creating a home that truly reflected the family living there – one that felt sophisticated, happy and warm.
Blessings to you,
