All About the Furniture: Armoires

Many of us that craft don’t always have the luxury of having an entire room to devote to crafting supplies. An armoire can be a great solution to contain your crafts while you are not using them and still have a functional living space that doesn’t look too cluttered.

 These two storage armoires from Better Homes & Gardens show a great way to incorporate tasteful storage while still being beautiful enough to have in your main living space.
Adding a pegboard to the back of this armoire provides much needed vertical storage space for all those little odds and ends. Using wallpaper on the front allows you to match it to any decor.
If you are a scrapbooker, this storage cabinet is great for storing all your papercrafting supplies.
Diane from In My Own Style does a great job of packing a lot of crafting items into one armoire. She has space for thread and sewing supplies, jewelry making supplies, ribbons, glue, and a whole lot more!
Here is another scrapbooking armoire that makes great use of all the space to store all Jen’s scrapbooking supplies. Adding the storage onto the doors really maximizes space!
Many times you can now find old TV armoires for sale since most people no longer store TVs in them. Maple & Magnolia found a not so pretty armoire for only $25! With a little paint and TLC this armoire is a beautiful addition to her foyer. It stores crafty supplies perfectly hidden away, but perfectly accessible when the crafty project bug bites.
If you primarily sew, this sewing armoire from Amazon is perfect. It has a great table that pulls out when you are ready to sew, and it all tucks neatly away when you are not working on a project.
If you have a small space to work with, don’t be discouraged that you must keep all your supplies out in the open. All of these armoires have made great use of a small space that will easily tie in to any decor you may have in your home!


  1. Awesome job rounding up all these amazing armoire ideas for us! I bet there’s a lot of people that are going to be kicking themselves for selling off their old TV cabinets! :) ~ Doris

  2. Thanks for these great ideas. I have an old computer armoire just filled with junk. I now have a vision….

  3. ha, ha… I agree with Doris… all those big ole tv cabinets…

    Although, and maybe I should do this, I could use several armoires… one for each craft I (try to) do!!!!

    I have seen this concept before. I am lucky to have a designated craft room and it’s overflowing. I need to purge (again), but it’s soooooo hard. I find that I love organizing it all instead of using it. Plus, we just moved and I’m finding sooooo much stuff. I know, I know… if I haven’t used it in years, I need to send it off to someone that will!

    I love your blog with all these great ideas (that clutter my already cluttered head!!!)!!!


  4. Hi there! This blog post could not be written much better!

    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept talking about this. I most certainly will forward this
    information to him. Pretty sure he’s going to have a good read.
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hello,

    I manage the website for the Habitat for Humanity of the Roaring Fork Valley ReStore in Carbondale, Colorado. We sell a lot of armoires in our store, and I would like to use a few photos from your “All About the Furniture: Armoires” post on our website to give our shoppers DIY ideas. Would this be okay? If so, how would you like me to post the photo credits?

    Thank you,
