I have said many times before that I am all about hidden storage and can’t get enough boxes, baskets, and bins. And, while I want that storage to be functional, I sure do like when it’s pretty too! Jen, the organizational guru behind IHeart Organizing, shows how she turned some plain white storage boxes into […Read More]
Ribbon, paint, stickers, stamps… When it comes to craft rooms, storage is a must! As Andrea of Personally Andrea says, “In a perfect world being creative should be fun and productive. Sitting in and staring at a disorganized mess is neither of those.” You won’t find a disorganized mess at Andrea’s house thanks to her freshly organized craft supplies. Andrea added interest to simple baskets with DIY number tags and shipping labels to easily identify the contents. With this system, everything’s hidden away, but you can quickly find what you need without pulling out each bin.
When Pam from Our Adventures in Home Improvement saw a wooden spool holder in her Crate & Barrel catalog, she knew it was something her hubs could make. And he sure didn’t disappoint, making each holder for only $5 using a walnut board and dowel. I love storage that is functional and cut to boot!
ChiWei from One Dog Woof has always loved the idea of having lots of little drawers to store all those bits and pieces of craft supplies she owns. When a card catalog came up on Craigslist at a reasonable price, ChiWei jumped on it, or rather, had her husband jump on it to ensure she became the proud new owner. ChiWei and her helpful hubby cut the original piece in half to create two consoles, built a new top for one of the pieces, and then gave them a fresh coat of paint. Now instead of one old broken down card catalog, ChiWei has two console tables to hold all of her goodies and plenty of room on top for display!
As most of us are probably aware, creativity is often accompanied by a mess. Lucy from Craftberry Bush decided to bring some of her creative clutter under control by making Anthropologie-inspired coiled cups to hold her art supplies. Lucy wrapped yarn around cording to create a long strand with alternating colors and then hot glued it around tin cans. Aren’t these so pretty? Who would think a pencil holder would ever add this much interest to a space?!?
When it comes to Pinterest, the pinning is the easy part. It’s making those pins actually come to fruition that presents the greater challenge. So you know Angie at Knick of Time was thrilled to mark this wooden twine holder as “pinned and done,” especially considering she pulled it off for less than a dollar using part of an old chair leg and a small wooden plaque she picked up from the craft store. This is such a darling storage idea that could also work great for ribbon, wasabi tape, and other crafting supplies.
In need of storage for her craft space, Jeanette from Country Design Style created a revolving shelf that has room to spare. Jeanette added her own flair by gluing various styles of trim to the top and bottom. I love how accessible everything is with this design. Instead of searching around in a cabinet or drawer, just give it a spin and craft away!
Jen from House of Wood is on a mission to create a fun-loving, Dr. Seuss-inspired play space for her kiddos. For the cost of a couple of hours of her time and some scrap wood from the garage, Jen can now cross this numbered wall cubby off her list. Like Jen, I definitely can’t see […Read More]
