Dreaming of a Craft Room

So its been a long time, but some of you may remember me giving you a peek into my craft corner a while ago.  Since then I've moved and now I craft on the dining room table and store my crafts in two bookcases worth of space in the corner of the living room.  We moved into a much smaller space (that's city life for you) so I had to give up what I had.

Thankfully, we're once again moving.  This time (knock on wood as long as something doesn't go horribly wrong) we'll be getting a 3 bedroom apartment.  This means that I get a full bedroom for my craft room!  I'm beyond stoked at the prospect of this and of course have taken to browsing Pinterest to get ideas for my new found space.  Somewhat related- I think I have a Pinterest addiction.

So some of the things I've been looking at are:

This one linked to a "page not found".  I really like the look of it, but I wonder if having the storage on one side while sitting on the other to work makes the most sense.  Plus I'm pretty sure this is the most expensive option.

This is nice and simple- I love all the wall shelves but again I think it would be a big investment for me.  

I love this piece (and the makeover if you go to the original site by clicking on the picture) but I'm not sure if the cubes are the best storage option for the variety of crafts that I have.  

This looks fantastic and the woman who runs that site does a good job of showing how to do it yourself.  From the picture I thought it was just store bought bookshelves, but she does it herself! I don't think I'm good enough at that sort of thing to do it all on my own but I could slap a flat board on some store bought book cases maybe?

This is another one that doesn't link right.  I think this is my most likely option- cobble together some desks, put some storage underneath and hang some shelves if I'm really ambitious.  

I think the first picture may be the most visually appealing to me but all the others look better organized for use.  What do you think?  Anyone have other ideas to share?  

Likely I'll wind up with some cobbled together craigslist mismatched thing due to my limited budget- but hey a girl can dream right?
