Get Crafty: Craft Room Storage Organization

So one of your New Year’s resolutions is to get organized. Where do you start?

Maybe it’s sorting out the papers that have piled up in the home office or finding a solution to bedroom clutter. Perhaps it’s maximizing space in the kitchen or finding ways to keep the toys off the floor in the kid’s room

If, by chance, it’s your craft room that’s looking a little bit like a danger zone after all those holiday DIYs, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few tips to start off your craft room organization resolution on the right foot.
Collect creative containers — You could splurge on an assortment of plastic bins, boxes and files at your favorite craft store. Or you could look around your house and see what you already have on hand. Jars and boxes in different sizes (like baby food jars and shoe boxes) work great, and don’t be afraid to do a little DIY to get your craft room storage up to par.

Don’t forget the furniture — Before donating that file cabinet or dresser that’s past its prime or has been outgrown, consider moving it into the space and using it as craft room storage furniture. For me, this means my old college desk. For my sister with little ones at home, it means my nephews old dresser and changing table.
  • Turn a desk into a workspace for scrapbooking or sewing.
  • Store knitting or painting supplies in dresser drawers.
  • Use the shelves and cubbies of a bookcase for odds, ends, bins and bowls of supplies.
  • File fabric scraps in a filing cabinet.
  • Create your own sewing table out of a dining room table.

Go mobile — If you don’t have an entire room to dedicate to crafts, select craft room storage furniture on wheels. That way, you can move your craft supplies to wherever you are (and put it away when you’re done).
  • Hide (and store) supplies behind the doors of a mobile sewing cart or craft cart.
  • Stack a wheeled multi-cart with bins and boxes of craft supplies.
  • Create an “art cart” with arts and craft supplies for the kids (or nieces and nephews).
