A Dozen Easy and Clever Organization & Craft Room Storage Ideas
Once Christmas is over I feel like it’s time to get organizing. I spend a lot of time in my craft room and it seems like that room often gets changed around repeatedly. I did notice, however, that I have some incredibly clever craft room storage ideas I have done over the years, narrowing it down to a dozen. These are all upcycling and repurposing ideas I have come up with on my own plus a few tips! Here we go!
Shown above, found at a thrift store for next t nothing, I use this old cookie jar I stenciled for craft punches.
This is a recent project I did to organize some ribbon spools I had. The ribbon is so pretty I figured it could not only be useful to my crafts, but also pose at artwork for my craft room.
Tip# 1: Check retail store dollar bins.
Another double duty artwork idea, I hung wire baskets with chicken wire to create a place for all my craft paints. These were from the Dollar Spot at Target.
Tip #2: Find thrift store “trash” and turn it into “treasure”.
This caddy goes with me if I work outside of my craft room. I made it out of a utensil kitchen caddy I found at a thrift store.
Keeping magazines and craft books handy for inspiration is a must. I painted this one myself from an old and ugly bamboo rack at Goodwill that just needed a coat of paint.
Tip #3: Save sturdy cardboard boxes.
My daughter has a lot of crafts supplies as well. These storage boxes were made with duct tape and recycled cardboard food boxes.
Tip #4: Think outside the box.
Vintage flower frogs are easy to find at flea markets. At the Long Beach Antique swap meet I ee them at several booths. I use of for paint brushes, markers, and…
I use these little containers all the time. Just add magnets to small plastic containers like prescription bottles and hang them on a magnetic board. It’s great for small craft and office supplies like jewelry notions, beads, and paper clips.
One of my favorites, when my daughter grew out of her crib, I repurposed her bed spring into craft storage.
With a simple plain white canvas and large rubber bands, you can make this inspiration and memo board. I appropriately stenciled this one with “inspire”.
Tip #5: A cart with wheels adds convenience.
This is a kitchen cart I got at IKEA. It makes the perfect sewing cart with my sewing machine on top and fabric on the bottom.
