Craft Room Storage
I hope this board will give you plenty of ideas of what you can do to organize your craft space, whether it is very large or very small. I try to keep adding…
I ❤ to sew . . . My serging station-I serge standing up so as not to be moving the chair back & forth. I keep serger thread (all one spool I have right now), some fat quarters, & random notions in those tin pails. I made those large decorative buttons from some wooden trays I found thrifting. My (awesome) hubby got me those metal ribbon spools ages ago from his work, they used to hold spools of wire, but are perfect for ribbon. ~By Jess from Craftiness is not Optional
I ❤ craft storage. . . First, let’s enjoy the pretty fabrics-if anything this opened my eyes to the fact that I can’t stop buying anything with teal in it. I also need to beef up my stash of solids. I really really really like prints so that’s probably why it’s lacking. ~FromCrafty Space: Jess from Craftiness is not Optional, Craftaholics Anonymous®fabric?
This is a Crafting Desk My husband I built for $112.00 in materials & hardware )in 2010). It is a great sturdy desk with ample storage for all your crafting items. I bought the Closet maid cubicles, 2, 9 cubby ones and 1, 6 cubby one These can be found on sale a lot of the time. We saved a lot of money by going to a bargain center for the materials.
6 boxes of paint is not an easy thing to find space for in my already filled up studio.....so instead of finding drawers I went up and used my wall space. Take a look at my new Wall of Paints! or my slice of Heaven! The "shelving" is simply t-grid metal 4' strip for an acoustic drop down ceiling that you see in most commercial uses. I purchased the 4' strips at Home Depot for about $2.50/each & installed them into the studs with screws. There is a natural lip on them to keep your items secure.
Drawers Full of Ribbon~ Great for wrapping gifts, giving outfits pizazz and adding an extra touch to any project, ribbon is a crafting staple. Make it easier to find and use by keeping similar colors together, wrapped around cardboard and kept safe in a drawer. Feel like going the extra mile? Add a corresponding sticker outside each drawer to always know which color it houses.
Every time I do a project, I run to the store for the colors I need. After, I dump them in a box & they disappear. Now if the spools of ribbon were visible, I know I would buy less & use what I already have. To solve these issues I came up with this ribbon organizer shelf. The spools can get dropped in & out at will, & the dowel is there to keep the ribbon inside. This organizer is meant for standard 4-inch rolls of ribbon; you could add an inch or two to the dimensions to handle larger spools.
Large Craft Table- I tweaked Ana White’s Modern craft table plan to make three oversized bases with a laminate countertop. On Ana’s plan there was 3 sets of cubbies on one side. I tweaked her plan to include the same set of cubbies on the other side so it was symmetrical. That allowed each of my bases to measure 50 1/2” wide instead of 38”
