Craft Storage Ideas: Repurposing Household Items – Small Item Storage Craft storage doesn’t have to be pricey – look around the house for unused items!
Who’s up for an inexpensive and easy-to-find storage solution?
How about a simple solution for keeping items in drawers sorted and accessible?
We’ve got a “Now why didn’t I think of that?!” solution for you…
Ice cube trays!
Not only do their compartments have sloped sides, making it easy to retrieve tiny items (just place your finger on what you want and slide it up the side!), they’re also short in stature, meaning they’ll easily fit into shallow drawers (drawers that often go unused because nothing fits in them!).
Craft Storage: Budget Storage Solutions for Embellishments Craft storage solutions for embellishments, bought on a shoestring budget!
Who’s in need of inexpensive storage solutions for their embellishments?
How about solutions that are also portable?
Well, we’ve got a super simple solution that’s both inexpensive and portable…and readily available!
Today’s spotlight is on a product that comes not from your favorite craft supply or storage solutions retailer, but from your local pharmacy, travel store, online retailer or even the Target dollar spot (where I picked up these!).
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!
