Hello Fellow Crafters!
We hope you’re all enjoying a wonderful Fall thus far.
I was just up in the Midwest and I so enjoyed seeing the early Fall colors (something we don’t get here in Austin, Texas).
If you’re already seeing Fall in all her glory, please share some pix in the comments – I’ll take all the Fall I can get!
I don’t know about you, but I’m big on prepping my craft space for the upcoming holiday crafting onslaught.
And this reorganization often involves finding new ways to store not just my old favs, but also my newest treasures, some of which have been released during the last couple of months and are now finding their way into local stores, and into my craft space.
Well, if it does, and you’re looking for a great resource for high-quality organizing and storage options, and you want to SAVE BIG, then you’ll definitely want to read on!

This is a thrift store find that was spray painted and given a faux zinc texture and adorned with chalkboard paint.
Rustoleum has several faux metal spray paints that create amazing metal pieces to add to your craft room.
This piece could provide great storage for your larger craft papers.
Another great little find transformed on a budget is this little tool chest from Katie at Little House of Four.
This is a great little craft storage unit for embellishments, threads, scraps, small punches…you name it!
I love how simple this transformation is.
We all have that one amazing sheet of 12 x 12″ patterned paper that we had to have, but never wanted to cut up.
Why not use it for a project like this?
You can see that Katie added some labels to complete her project and to make it a really functional piece.
Simple, useful and budget friendly!
For my final share, I want to show you how great these metal items are even if you don’t do a single thing to them.
Here is an industrial looking craft room created by Larissa from Prodigal Pieces.
I love the vintage industrial look that Larissa has achieved in her sewing space.
What does she store in those drawers?
Look below to see how she cleverly uses hanging files to hold her fabric stash.
I love this idea!
You can see exactly what you have without having piles of fabric on a shelf. (My piles never stay neat.)
Whether you choose to leave the metal storage items as they are or you choose to use your craft skills to transform them into something new and fabulous, don’t pass these items by at garage sales, thrift stores and clearance bins.
They have unlimited possibilities!
Please leave a comment – let us know what great metal finds
you’ve transformed into useful craft storage!

Love craft storage ideas and craft space shares like these?
For today’s spotlight, I am going to focus on their ink pad storage units.
When I first started papercrafting I stuffed my (small) collection of ink pads into drawers in my craft desk.
I quickly realized that 1) the color I wanted would ALWAYS be on the bottom of a stack in the back of my drawer, and 2) I forgot what colors I had and would end up using the same limited palette…my early cards, lots of Peacock Feathers distress ink going on.Ha!
When I finally decided to switch to an actual ink storage unit, I looked at several and ultimately settled on the OrganizeMoreProInk Organizer.
And I am SO thrilled that I found this product!
I started off with one of the ProInk Organizers which holds every ink pad size up to those the size of the Stampin’ Up pads.
I purchased two of these units, but quickly filled them up and started looking at other options from OrganizeMore.
Around this time I was really getting interested in various techniques with Distress Ink Pads, Reinkers and Markers and I was looking for a unit that would hold all three.
OrganizeMore had units that would hold Stampin’ Up markers, reinkers and pads, but they didn’t yet have a Distress Ink option.
I think this might be my most favorite unit just because it’s so pretty!
Here’s a closer look (below) at each cubby.
The dowels keep the re-inkers and ink pads from getting stuck too far back in each compartment – love that!
Now, I have to stop and admit that I’m a bit of an ink hoarder.
I LOVE the gorgeous colors and, with all of the companies continuing to put out such quality ink pads and colors, I kept needing more and more storage!
Next, I purchased a ProInk/ReInk Organizer (see below) which ended up working really well to store some of my extra ink pads, as well as the brand new Distress Ink colors that have been released this year.
Again, the dowels help to keep the re-inkers from getting lost in the back of the organizer.
And, this unit also fits Stampin’ Up pads.
Finally, I totally ran out of room for storage units on my craft desk and, while all of the units can be wall-mounted, I didn’t want to take up wall space either.
So, a few months ago I contacted Mike at OrganizeMore about the possibility of creating an ink pad storage unit specifically for the cubbies of an Ikea Expedit/Kallax, and he was open to the idea!
I have three of these new units now and I anticipate purchasing a fourth soon!
The dividers are a little different than OrganizeMore‘s traditional corrugated plastic inserts, but they work just as well and using these dividers allows customers to fit more ink pads into the unit (which is a total win in my book!).
Here’s a look at this style of organizer:
While these units are slightly different than the other units sold by OrganizeMore, aesthetically these units still fit with the other units they sell, which is a big plus for my slightly OCD brain!
I have always chosen the white units with white inserts as they fit my craft room design best, but OrganizeMore offers nine different color options for the units so you can surely find something that will complement your craft space!
Organize More also offers daily deals where they discount one of their units by 15 percent.
And, as a special perk for our readers, OrganizeMorehas given us a discount code good for 10% off your purchase, good through July 25th!
The discount code is: CSI715.
I cannot say enough nice things about the products from OrganizeMore.
They’re classy, well-designed and perfect for corralling the craft products in your life!
I hope you’ll visit them and see if there’s anything that would work for your craft room.
