Craft Storage Ideas: We’d Love to Hear Your Suggestions!

Hello Crafters!

After lots of “behind-the-scenes” activity to update the site, as well as updating existing social media accounts (FacebookPinterest) and launching new accounts (Twitter, YouTube, Instagram) so we can offer you even more craft storage ideas through a variety of channels, we’re excited to get the ball rolling again!

For anyone who might have missed our big announcement,
Stephanie Hackney (that’s me!) has acquired Craft Storage Ideas.

And now that the deal is done and the Craft Storage Ideas contributors and I have had a chance to meet each other, it’s time for you to join in…

We’d love to hear from you – what specifically would you like us to investigate, to discuss and to offer you in the way of tips, tricks and solutions, and information and inspiration, for storing your one or many crafts’ tools, supplies and ongoing projects?

We’ll continue to bring you content based on the previously-covered topic areas (Craft Room Peeks, Crafter Interviews & Craft Space Tours, Contributor Team Spaces, Furnishing Shares, ‘Just One Tip,’ Storage Solution Round-Ups, DIY Storage Solutions, Re-Purposing/Recycling/Re-Using, Product Reviews and Organizing How-To’s), but we’d like to know what else we can provide – this is YOUR chance to voice your opinion on what we’ll be researching and sharing moving forward.

We look forward to hearing your ideas and we’ll return to our regular posting schedule (at least three (3) posts per week) starting next week.

Let’s get this party started!
Steph & The CSI Team

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use: Locker Love

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Use – Locker Love
Craft storage inspiration is everywhere…even in schools!

Hello, fellow craft storage enthusiasts,

Once again it’s Hazel, all the way from sunny South Africa (SA) here with you today.

About a year ago I did a post for Craft Storage Ideas on Ali Edwards’ studio.

What I loved most about her room was this:

Lockers!

As both our “boys” are all grown up and “sorted,” we are seriously downsizing.

Even though we don’t need that much living space, I’m still a HUGE crafter and my husband is a DIY fanatic.

This means utilizing every possible space in a pretty and effective way.

Another important thing to me is to recycle, reuse and re-purpose.


Today I’m sharing re-purposed storage lockers with you.

Grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and hop along through Pinterest and Blogland with me.


In this HomeTalk post on re-purposing lockers you can read all about the transformation of these old-school lockers:

Even if your junkyard-find has lost some of it’s doors through the years, or you don’t care for the doors, all is not lost:

And if you don’t have wall space to fit a whole set of lockers, a coffee table version can add extra storage:

That’s it from me.

I hope you enjoyed our locker-love appointment.
