Craft Room Storage–Baskets with Number Labels

craft room storage

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.

Carla of Blueberry Junkie is in the process of revamping her kids’ playroom, and one of the things she wanted to incorporate was an art area. Carla was challenged with neatly storing and organizing the art supplies without making them out-of-sight and, thus, out-of-mind for her kids. That’s where Ana White’s plans for numbered wall cubbies come in! Carla used scrap pallet wood from her garage to build her own cubbies in just a couple of hours. I love how inviting it is with the paper roll underneath!

Like Yvonne at Stone Gable, do you go an organizing frenzy after Christmas? She whipped the built-ins in her living room into shape by organizing her books in baskets with wooden number labels. Yvonne made those lovely labels herself and shares her technique for transferring the text without a cutting machine. In addition to labeling baskets, you could also hang them on flower pots or vases for a pretty centerpiece, tie them around glass jars for creative storage, or even wrap up some silverware for a unique place setting.

Laura from Finding Home knew she needed to find a storage solution for her ribbon hoard collection. She already had a wire basket organizer in her basement that was fully functional but lacking in the style department. That Laura could take care of! She scoured the internet for inspiration and came up with the perfect plan to transform her plain wire drawers into an industrial-looking wood and metal cabinet. Isn’t it amazing what a bit of paint and wood can do?!?

Restoration Hardware’s entryway lockers had Meesh from imeeshu swooning for months. She had designed a full-on building plan before realizing she could pull it off without risking sawing off a finger. Meesh redirected her efforts and found a bookshelf she could repurpose with the addition of a few boards and chalk paint. Meesh says, “A little bead board, some industrial hooks, Michael’s crates, and voila! It’s perfect.”

Years later inspiration finally hit, and Jamie transformed the rundown cabinet into a functional message center for her home that features a chalkboard door and key hook rack.

I know I can always count on Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict for a good knock-off, and again she doesn’t disappoint! Recently Debbie’s teenage grandson started using her guest bedroom, which necessitated a few tweaks to the space, including her French number plaque baskets. Debbie gave them a more masculine edge by simply tying on mailbox numbers with jute. She says, “There it is! Could it be any easier or cheaper?”
