Unique Storage Ideas – even more ideas for your craft room and craft supplies!

How many of you have enjoyed our Unique Storage Ideas posts?

How about our previous finds from field trips to Hobby Lobby?

Are you forever on the hunt for something “unique” for your craft room or art studio?

Perhaps a single item to add character to your space, or a way to inspire you to want to spend more time there?

Or, maybe you’d like to add a special ‘collection’ that not only looks cool, but serves a purpose?

Well, we’ve got more craftroom organization ideas for you!

Craftroom Organization: Unique Items – Cigar Boxes

We’re sharing even more non-traditional craftroom organization and storage solutions, solutions that may just help you love your creative space even more and make you more productive when you’re in it.

How do great storage ideas help with productivity?

When you love your space, you want to be in it – it’s as simple as that!

And when you can easily find – and put away – your tools and supplies, you have more time for creating and will most certainly enjoy the process more.


The following craftroom organization items were spotted at several Austin, Texas Hobby Lobby stores I recently visited – we hope you enjoy checking them out!

Perhaps they’re just what you’re looking for and you can find them at your local store.

Or, maybe they’ll simply spark something in you, a way to re-purpose something you have on hand, or to motivate you to start hunting for a similar solution, one that’s ideal for what you need to organize and store!


Now we know there’ll be at least a few of you who don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, or who may not be able to find these exact items at your local store.

Please keep in mind that we’re sharing these simply to give you ideas about how you might be able to make use of unique storage items and furnishings that are not specific to craft room and/or crafting supply organization, items that could make organizing and storing your crafty stash more fun!

And if you do have a local store that carries one or more of these items, and it’d/they’d be ideal for your needs, well that’s even better.


One thing I do want to point out to those who DO have a Hobby Lobby near them is that many of these items have been marked WAY down since the day I took these photos.

Yes, that means they may be a bit harder to come by, but if your store does carry them, they’re likely also super reasonable now.

And that’s a good thing, right?

We sure love great deals!


Along with each craftroom organization and storage item, I’m sharing my thoughts on the best uses for that type of unit, as well as characteristics to look for in products and furnishings you might come across where you live (and bargain hunt!).

I’ve also shared potential ‘cons,’ if any exist, to using these.


And, because we had a request from one of our readers to include the prices when we share items such as these, the prices are included when it was possible to include the price tag in the photo (enlarge the images to see the price tags more clearly).

Remember though that many of these prices have been recently reduced…some quite significantly!

 

And now, let’s take a look at each organizing and storage idea and chat about how YOU might put it to use in YOUR space…


Option One: White Desk

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - White Desk (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – White Desk

This unit may not be as unique as those that follow, but I love the frame and the built-in riser and cubbies.

Don’t you?

This is ideal for someone who works from home and doesn’t need a lot of desk space, for cardmakers and scrapbookers, and also for us planner girls. 🙂

It appears to be well-built, and with that white finish, it’s sure to fit into most any decor.

Potential Cons:
If you’re into mixed-media and art journaling, then you’d definitely have to protect the surface when you’re creating (or perhaps add a glass top, but that would be pricey).

Price: $230.00 USD

Thoughts on this desk? 

 

Option Two: Numbered Metal Drawers Unit

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Numbered Metal Unit (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Numbered Metal Unit

This unit is ideal for storing dies, embossing folders, small stamp sets, or even numbered items (such as chipboard or acrylic pieces) and the strong wooden top makes it ideal for hosting small machines like the Cuttlebug.

This would also be simple to alter if you wanted it all one color or wanted to paint the drawers various colors that match your creative space.

Potential Cons:
I don’t think I would store delicate items like ribbons or fabrics in this unit as the metal is distressed and could damage those items.

This unit might also rust over time (although you could apply a clear coat to it and that should prevent rusting).

Price: Unknown (I tried to capture the price tag, on the left, but it kept flipping off to the side – argh!)

Is this one for you –
why or why not?

 

Option Three: Colorful Metal Drawers Unit

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Colorful Metal Basket Unit (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Colorful Metal Basket Unit

This unit is ideal for crafters who like a lot of color or who want to be able to slide out a drawer and take it to where they’re creating.

Of course, just like with the last unit (above), it could easily be altered to match most any decor.

You could easily store fabrics and sewing or quilting supplies in the drawers, hang rulers and scissors from the sides and place a machine on the top so it’s always handy.

This would also work well for machines like the Cricut and Silhouette and Brother Scan’NCut, or the Cuttlebug or Spellbinders Platinum machine, with room in the drawers for most of the supplies that accompany those machines.

Mats could easily be hung from the sides, keeping them handy and flat.

Additionally, paper pads or alphabet sticker sheets could be easily and neatly stored in the bins.

And finally, you could store folded or rolled fabric in the drawers (as long as the unit was away from harsh light or pets).

Potential Cons:
Like with the previous unit (above), this unit is metal so rusting is a long-term possibility, but this unit appears to have a strong, clear coat over it so I don’t think you’d have to worry about it for some time.

You’d probably want to add something soft (like felt) to the bottoms of the legs as they are a bit rough.

Price: $125.00 USD

Who’s up for adding some color to their space?

Or, would you like to have this, but paint it?

 

Option Four: Locker Drawers & Basket Unit

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Locker & Wire Drawers Unit (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Locker & Wire Drawers Unit

This one’s a papercrafters dream!

Even if you had to paint and/or clear coat this unit, it’s got some pretty ideal storage.

That tall basket is perfect for rolls of specialty or decorative or flower-making paper; the smaller, upper bins would work well for small paper pads; and, the three lower, left-hand drawers would work well for storing misc. types of paper (watercolor pads, palette paper, etc.)

I don’t think I’d store fabrics in this unit, but notions, rulers, scissors and rotary cutters, cutting mats, etc. might fit well, with room on the top for a machine or two.

Potential Cons:
Same as with the previous two units, the metal may rust over time if not well coated.

Price: $147.00 USD

Any papercrafters drooling over this one?

 

Option Five: Multi-Colored Drawers w/ A Variety of Hardware Unit

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Varied Colors & Hardware Drawer Unit (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Varied Colors & Hardware Drawer Unit

This unit was calling my name – it looks almost exactly like one I have except that mine is all black rather than being multi-colored.

I love the quirkiness of this storage unit and could find a million things to store in those cute drawers!

In my unit, I’ve stored the following: small office supplies, binder rings of all sizes, jewelry findings (in tiny zipper bags), metal items for mixed media projects, sugar beads, iTop parts, rubber bands and large journal bands, empty tins and small containers, and extra zipper bags in various sizes.

This would be ideal for storing fabric squares and bundles, sewing and quilting notions, drawing tools, pens and pencils, clay and clay tools, jewelry-making supplies and tools, etc.

Potential Cons:
Some of the drawers were a bit tough to slide in and out.

Price: Unknown (again, the dang tag wouldn’t stay in place so I could capture the price, but I recall that it was around $125)

What do you think –
how would you use this?

 

Option Six: Lockers on Wheels Unit

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Locker Doors Wheeled Cabinet (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Locker Doors Wheeled Cabinet

This unit would work for so many applications!

I love that it looks a bit like old school lockers, provides a lot of storage space behind each door (and a label holder on the front of each one), has a large top that’s likely to hold up well and has wheels.

I can envision storing small bolts of fabric, paper pads, or containers of supplies for most any crafting endeavor in the ‘lockers.’

Potential Cons:
A couple of the doors were a tiny bit sticky (but use and/or a little WD40 would likely take care of that).

Price: $210.00 USD

Is this ‘industrial’ look more your style?

 

Option Seven: Industrial Shelving Unit

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Industrial Shelving Units (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Industrial Shelving Units

These also made me swoon!

I love the rivets and the styling of these, and they provide a lot of space for storing your most used (read: need to be readily accessible) supplies and tools.

I like how tall the open space is between the bottom shelf and the shelf above it – perfect for 12 x 12 scrapbooks!

Potential Cons:
Because of the coating that’s on them, you might not want to store ‘delicate’ items on these shelves without putting them in containers first.

Price: $84.00 USD

Another industrial-looking storage unit –
yay or nay?

 

Option Eight: Metal Stands

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Metal Stands (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Metal Stands

These three are equally attractive options for storing tools and supplies.

The outer two are ideal for smaller, lightweight items (preferably in clear containers) and the center tiered basket is sturdy enough to hold heavier items.

Any of these could be painted if you wanted a color other than black, and the outer two are perfect for making use of tall, narrow spaces in your craft room, spaces that are currently unused.

Potential Cons:
The unit on the left might tip over if loaded heavily on top and lighter on the bottom (especially if positioned on carpeting).

All three of these could damage delicate materials (think papers, fabrics, ribbons, etc.) if the items aren’t stored in containers that fit into these units.

Price: $59.00-$69.00 USD

I love all three of these, but the center is my favorite –
how about you, what’s your favorite of these three?

 

Option Nine: Chicken Wire Display Box

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Wooden Chicken Wire Display Box (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Wooden Chicken Wire Display Box

This unit is ideal for paints, mediums, embossing powders, adhesives or even wood-mounted stamps.

And it would make a nice display case for jars of ribbon, washi rolls, buttons, etc.

And most importantly, it could be locked on the side to keep little ones’ fingers out and off your precious (or dangerous) supplies.

Potential Cons:
It’s made to be hung on a wall and would require some anchoring. And unless you have a shabby-chic style creative space, you’d probably need to invest in painting it.

Price: Unknown (sadly, there was only one of these and it wasn’t marked)

Who’s fawning over this one?

 

Option Ten: Black, White & Gold Desk Organizer

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Black White & Gold Desk Organizer (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Black White & Gold Desk Organizer

O.K., I know this is quite a bit different from the previous units, but I fell in love and had to share it!

I’m totally loving black and white and gold and looked at this for storing my personal planner (also black and white and gold) and accompanying tools and supplies.

It was located in the stationery section, in case you go hunting for it.

The larger section (on the right) is perfect for holding one or more planners and/or a planner and paper pad; the front cubby could hold clips and other bits and bobs, or small acrylic or wood-mounted stamp sets; the center section on the left would be perfect for pens and pencils, or more stamp sets (I have acrylic sets that are tall and narrow); and, the back section on the left is ideal for rulers or narrow, acrylic stamp sets. 

Potential Cons:
It is made of covered chipboard so it’s not likely to hold up a long time (but then, we’ll probably be on to a new, fun color scheme by the time it wears out, right? ;)).

Price: $20.00 USD

Any black, white and gold and/or planner peeps in the house?

Has this got your heart fluttering?

 

Option Eleven: Distressed Divided Box

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas - Hobby Lobby Take III - Distressed Divided Box (image)

Craftroom Organization: Unique Storage Ideas – Hobby Lobby Take III – Distressed Divided Box

This last unit is great on so many levels if you’re a lover of vintage items.

First, it looks vintage, but is quite sturdy.

Second, it’s a neutral color and would fit in most anywhere with or without any changes to the finish.

And third, it’s great hanging up or laying flat.

I’d love to see it used laying flat for sewing and quilting notions or for holding wood veneers or chipboard pieces for papercrafting, or hanging up and showing off a crafter’s collection…of anything!

Into painting, mixed media or art journaling?

Why not use it for your brushes, spatulas, paints and mediums?

Potential Cons:
The wood is a bit rough and may need a bit of sanding if what you store in it could be damaged.

Price: $39

 

Well, that wraps up yet another round of
unique craftroom organization and storage items.

Here are just a few of my favorite Go-Organize.com craft storage products, products I’m using in my craft room (a.k.a. the PCC craft studio!):

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Revolving Organizer (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Revolving Organizer

The Revolving Organizer, the first Go-Organize product I tried and an organizational tool I couldn’t live without!

If, like me, you prefer keeping your most-used tools close at hand, then this may be the perfect solution for you too.

And if you’re always hunting for your tools and are frustrated with having to look for them EVERY. SINGLE. TIME., then try one of these – it’ll definitely improve your productivity and lessen your frustration!

My Revolving Organizer is stationed on the corner of my work area, within arm’s reach whenever I’m creating, and although it’s ‘stuffed to the gills,’ I’m able to quickly and easily locate the tools I need.

Here’s a quick look at what I’m storing in mine:

(Excuse the marked-up wall in these pix, I’m marking where my next Peg Board [see below] will be hung!)

As you can see, this baby holds A LOT!!!

Need portability? I’ve taken my Revolving Organizer with me to crops – I found a large shopping tote and in it went!

If you’re looking for a new tool storage solution, a solution that’s very reasonably priced, sturdy and pretty, and works well for storing most any crafting hand tools (as well as markers and pens, coloring mediums, paint brushes, rulers, etc.), then check out the Revolving OrganizerI LOVE mine!

What would YOU store in this Revolving Organizer if you had one?

Please share your ideas in the comments –
we’d love more ideas!

 

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Peg Boards (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Peg Boards

The next Go-Organize products I added to my space are the white Peg Boards.

The Peg Boards come in packs of three and make great use of otherwise unused vertical space – with the included mounting hardware and easy-to-follow instructions, you can quickly and easily hang them from a wall, or from the side of a desk, work surface or cabinet (like shown below).

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Peg Boards - Mounted to Cubes (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Peg Boards – Mounted to Cubes

How cool is this mounting idea?

Otherwise unused space is instantly made useful!


I think this is an ideal solution for kids’ craft areas too, don’t you?

Hang tools on the pegboard and store the supplies inside a combination of any of the Go-Organize craft storage cubes – everything is easy to access and very little space is needed.


I have one Peg Board panel on the wall behind my work area, and I just removed a few decorative items from that same wall so I can add another Peg Board panel to that space – yup, I like them that much!

The Peg Board panel that’s currently hanging up is home to my paper crimper, a clear cutting guide, a hot glue gun, a Dymo Label Maker and heat tools (and as soon as I get some more hooks, I’ll be adding a few more tools to this space).

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Peg Board Panel - Perfect For Hanging Larger Tools (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Peg Board Panel – Perfect For Hanging Larger Tools


I plan to use the new, second panel for hanging my many stencils (stay tuned for a share on how this turns out!).

And I may add the third panel from my 3-pack to that same wall and use it to keep new papercrafting embellishments front and center (so I don’t forget to use them!), or hang it on the back wall inside my craft room closet for hanging up my embroidery hoops and other challenging-to-store tools.


Is papercrafting your thing? Hang packs of your newest embellishments from the hooks so you don’t forget to use them!

Prefer quilting and/or sewing? Think about using these Peg Boards for hanging your scissors, rotary cutting tools, quilting rulers and templates, tape measures, etc. close to where you quilt or sew.

Jewelry-making and beading more your crafty pleasure? You might want to hang your tools on one of these hung just above your ‘bench’ so everything is within reach, but not taking up valuable work area.

Got a thing for needle arts? Consider hanging your floss collection from a panel, reminding you of all the beautiful colors you have at your disposal!

Whatever kind of crafting you’re into, we bet you can find a use for one (or many!) of these handy panels.


How would YOU use these Peg Board panels in your craft space?

Please share your ideas in the comments –
we’d love to hear them!


Oh, and one more thing – these Peg Board panels can easily be painted or decorated with your favorite crafting supplies, making it easy to customize them for YOUR space!

 

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Wall Shelves (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Go-Organize.com Wall Shelves

And last, but certainly not least, I’m adding the Go-Organize Wall Shelves to the space to the left of where my first Peg Board is currently hung.

I need a spot to keep all of my small liquids, sprays and powders (the ones I use most often) within reach when I’m creating.

These shelves, which come in packs of two, will soon be home to a bunch of different liquid adhesives, as well as dimensional products, artist mediums, and embossing powders, and my beloved Archival Spray and Goo-Gone.

After taking these shelves out of their packaging, my mind was racing with other ideas for stocking them – they’re perfect for storing sewing notions, beads and jewelry findings, buttons and other craft project embellishments, and as a display shelf for your favorite rubber stamps, small creations made by you and other crafters, and cards from your crafty friends.

I’ll be sharing pictures of my filled shelves as soon as I get them hung and I’d love to hear your ideas for using these!

Where would you hang these shelves,
and what would you store or display on them if you had a set?

Please share your thoughts in the comments –
we love hearing from you!


Well kids, that’s it for today’s share.

We sure are excited to be working with Go-Organize.com
and hope you’ll give them a HUGE CSI welcome!

Craft Storage Ideas: Color Is Your Friend!

Craft Storage Ideas: Color Is Your Friend!
Craft Storage & Organizing By Color – Worth a Try?

Who’s looking for a little colorful inspiration?

How about colorful inspiration for organizing your crafting supplies?

I came across a three craft storage products that I thought you might want to check out, especially if organizing by color is something you want to try, or already love.

Of course these products would also be great if you just really like lots of color in your creative space or when crafting on the go!

This is the first time I’ve seen these items at retail, and I haven’t had a chance to try all of them out myself (yet!), but I thought I’d share them right away in case you’re on the hunt for a new solution for organizing by color, or simply organizing with colorful solutions.


Now keep in mind that just because a storage unit has a craft-specific name (such as two of those below have), that doesn’t mean you can only use them for that type of tool or supply.

When we share products, we’ll do our best to provide you with lots of use cases, no matter what type(s) of crafting you’re into.

After all, most of us dabble in at least a couple of crafty endeavors, so multi-use storage can be quite valuable.

And as our crafting desires change, it’s great to re-purpose our organizing and storage products rather than having to buy all new solutions, right?


O.K., let’s take a look at three plastic and portable storage units…

Craft Storage Ideas: Iris - Large Photo & Craft Keeper (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Iris – Large Photo & Craft Keeper

This first item, made by Iris, is a multi-drawer unit that’s ideal for smaller items – think paper and fabric scraps, embellishments and thread, embroidery floss, small tools like scissors and tweezers, etc.

It’s called the Large Photo & Craft Keeper and as you can see from this photo, it retails at Michael’s Craft Stores for $39.99.

Of course, when Michael’s puts their plastic storage items on sale, or you have a coupon that’s valid on this type of item, this item can be purchased for much less.


This product is “designed for” storing photos, but it’s perfect for so many different types of craft tools and supplies!

I have several of the clear Photo & Craft Keepers and I love them for storing items like Ranger Distress Ink Reinkers, extra Distress Tool pads, Stickles bottles, etc.

I like my craft supplies to be visible and portable so these are perfect for my needs!

If you’re a hand-sewer, embroidery nut, paper-piecer, quiller or jewelry maker, you might want to check out the unit above (or the XL and/or clear version) for storing your tools and supplies, especially if you’re on the go a lot.

Perhaps the best aspect of this type of unit is that you don’t have to carry the whole outer case with you – you can simply grab a few of the inner containers, toss them in your craft tote and off you go!

 

The second and third products we’re sharing today are made by Really Useful Products (the company is out of the UK, but their products are available here in the U.S., in stores and online, as well).

 

Craft Storage Ideas: Really Useful Products - Drawers Tower w/7 Drawers (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Really Useful ProductsDrawers Tower w/7 Drawers

The first product by Really Useful Products is called the Drawers Tower.

This version has seven (7) drawers and they make many versions of this item, with fewer or more drawers. 

If you buy this item directly from the company (link above), you can also buy the drawers individually and put together whatever configuration you need.

But, if you’re looking for this item locally, in the U.S., this exact configuration is available at Michael’s (which is where this photo was taken).

As you can see, the price is $39.99, but with a coupon or when their plastic storage items are on sale, you could get it for much less.


This drawer unit is great for scraps, small notions, jewelry-making supplies, etc., or for those who like their supplies sorted by color – you could quickly and easily add all purple items to the purple drawer, blue items to the blue drawer, etc.

And the benefit to this method of storage is that you wouldn’t need to label the drawers – you’d know exactly what was in each drawer just by glancing at the drawer color!

This unit could also be great for tool storage if you either just like a lot of color on your work area, or if your tools are colored and it would be easy for you to recall which tools are in each drawer based on the color of the drawer.

And yes, it’s even portable – it would definitely fit in a large tote or shopping bag, or simply add a strap around it for easy hand-carrying.

 

Craft Storage Ideas: Really Useful Products - Scrapbook Drawers Tower w/Eight Drawers (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: Really Useful Products – Scrapbook Drawers Tower w/Eight Drawers

And the third and final product being shared today, another product from Really Useful Products, is called the Scrapbook Drawers Tower.

This version has eight (8) drawers (they also make versions with more or fewer drawers) and it comes with casters so even this larger unit is somewhat portable.

This drawer unit would be perfect for storing larger, 12×12 items such as scrapbooking paper* and cardstock*, sheet protectors*, finished scrapbook layouts, etc., as well as folded or rolled fabrics, interfacing, rolls of vinyl and many other items that require or work well in a horizontal larger space.

*Please keep in mind that you’d need to lift the larger, flat items mentioned to find what you need, but chipboard dividers between them could make this process easier.


Have lots of wood-mounted rubber stamps or ink pads?
You could fit a lot of either in each of these drawers!

This rolling unit would also be perfect for storing lots of smaller items in containers – think beads, jewelry findings, embellishments, notions, etc.

And, the drawers are sized well for storing short jars of paints, glitters, embossing powders and art mediums, items which sometimes spill and require a surface (like this plastic) that’s easily cleaned.

And again, this is a great solution if you prefer, or want to try, organizing everything by color – one of these drawers is large enough to hold a lot of pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue or purple supplies!


This appears to be a new product for the manufacturer and it appears that it can be bought directly from them – again, I grabbed this picture at my local Michael’s.

The price of this unit is $129, but again, there are certainly opportunities to save by taking advantage of sales or coupons.


Well, that’s it for today’s shares.

Please let us know what you think of the products we shared today.

Have ideas for how YOU might use these storage units?

Please share your ideas with us and your fellow crafters
by leaving them in a comment!

Have a great week and happy organizing,

Now, if you’re anything like me, why not DIY?

This craft bag by Juliana Gnomes would be perfect, especially if coloring is at the top of your kid’s list!

I’ve made this “art bag” myself and what’s GREAT about it is that I’ve included a mini chalk board and colored chalk – nothing that a wet wipe can’t get rid of.

Now let’s look at some containers to hold all your supplies…

Also see their assortment of traveling games (I love the Road Trip Bingo!) and, although I know this has nothing to do with craft storage, their food travel kit as well – clever and also perfect for a crafting event or crop!

The Two-Tray Box by Creative Options has two cantilever trays with 13-24 adjustable compartments and tons of storage in the base.

This is ideal for art supplies for kids of any age, and would make a great locker organizer.

Steph adds that this would also be great for mixed media or doodling supplies for crafty adults!

Craft Storage Ideas: Furniture – Clean & Modern Desks

Craft Storage Ideas: Furniture – Clean & Modern Desks
Craft storage furnishings for the modern crafter!

Hi everyone,

It’s Sharon from Glitter Angel Designs here to share with you some ideas for craft desks.

This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, as I’m getting close to the arrival of my new garden craft studio.

I know that I want to have both a desk area to sit at, and something at standing height.

I currently use a glass-topped desk, which is great for cleaning up, and looks nice, but when I stand at it to use my Big Shot, I get a backache after a few minutes so I know having something at counter height is a must for my new room.


This is my current desk:

I like the modern look of it, and I think it will fit well in my new room, which is going to be mostly white.

One added bonus to having a glass-topped desk is that you can put a desk lamp underneath the desk and use it like a light box – very useful!


If you are short of space in your craft room, then the desk addition to the IKEA Kallax shelving is a great solution.

If you have an unusual space, or want something adjustable, then Ikea really does have some great options.

They have a whole range of separate table tops, legs and trestle bases, so you can create something completely flexible.

If you have a specific space you want to fit your desk into, you could even get a piece of counter-top cut to the exact size you need, then just use some trestle bases to support it.

You can view the whole range of IKEA table top and leg options.


I particularly like this one, since it has the lovely glass top I like, and is completely height adjustable.

And it’s on sale (in the U.S. at least) through August 5, 2015!

For something at standing height, again Ikea seems to have a good solution.

I’ve seen this kitchen island (below) featured in quite a few craft rooms, and in larger rooms I’ve also seen two units together to create a great, large working area.

There’s lots of handy storage space underneath too.

I hope I’ve given you a few ideas for your craft room – maybe you’ll see some of these products in my new room over the coming months, once I start shopping!

Thanks for stopping by and please swing by my blog, Glitter Angel Designs, and say hello!

Craft Storage Ideas: Solutions Round-Up – 15 Awesome Craft Storage Tools From Your Kitchen

Craft Storage Ideas: Solutions Round-Up – 15 Awesome Craft Storage Tools From Your Kitchen
Craft storage made easy with items you may already own!

Hi!

It’s Amanda here and I’m going to share with you some really amazing storage solutions that could be hiding right in your own home, items you may never have thought of using to house your crafting supplies.

Craft Storage Ideas: 15 Awesome Craft Storage Tools From Your Kitchen (image)

Craft Storage Ideas: 15 Awesome Craft Storage Tools From Your Kitchen

As a crafters we’re always on the lookout for the best way to store all our crafting supplies in our spaces.

There are so many products on the market that are made just for craft storage, but some of those solutions can get pretty pricey.

So today I would like to share with you some hidden gems that might be in your kitchen that you could use to store some of your stash.

First up is a little bit of upcycling.


These old baby food jars were cleaned out and hung up with magnets under a cabinet to provide color coordinated button storage. Genius I say!

Not to mention mostly free since you would be re-using something that normally goes in the trash.

How about canning jars?

I’m sure you’ve seen all over the web how these beauties can help neaten up your space.

With the clear jars you can still see what’s inside and yet everything is neat and orderly.

A wine rack?

No, not for keeping your wine handy when you’re crafting, but with a few glasses, it makes amazing marker and pen storage right on your desktop or wall!

Here’s another upcycle!

This super smart crafter saved some jars from the kitchen – I spy spaghetti sauce and pickle jars here!

Just brighten up the lids with some paint, drill a hole and add a pretty drawer pull to the top, and you have some really cute looking jars to sort your supplies into!

These are just plain adorable!

Need some hidden storage?

How about adding some Bygel Rails (meant for kitchen use) and dowels on the inside of a cabinet door to store all your craft paints?

These little spice jars are just perfect for sorting those small bits and bobs.

How about a spice rack for storage shelves?

Take advantage of your vertical wall space with a few of these and you’ll be on your way to organizing success!

Of course I couldn’t leave out the ever-popular Raskog Cart!

This little baby holds lots of stuff, has wheels to easily roll it around your space, and it’s just a really awesome color.

Who doesn’t love turquoise?!

The Bygel Rails are back!

No longer are they just plain towel rods, they create a wall of punch holders here!

These white bins are amazing for sorting just about anything you could want to tuck away.

What about a tiered fruit basket or other type of tiered tray?

This is a fantastic way to keep all those things you use all the time right on your work space.

These canisters are a good way to sort out scraps or ribbon or fabric, among other things, and they give your craft room a candy shoppe look.

A cute silverware caddy or tray with cups is a great way to sort your pencils, pens and scissors.

How about re-purposing a coffee pod holder for storing embossing powders (or other small tubs or jars of supplies)?

It’s a cute and a functional way to store your stash in an at-hand solution!

Steph uses a coffee pod holder for her washi tape – stay tuned for a share of that storage option in a future post!
 

Need an organizer for small bits?

Look no further than a muffin tin!

The little compartments are perfect for sorting small objects.

I hope some of these ideas help you tame your craft stash in a way that lights up your crafting world.

Many of these solutions are
h less expensive than the “made for crafting” storage options, not to mention they add a little uniqueness and fun to your special work space!

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use: Jars, Cups & Canisters

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use: Jars, Cups & Canisters!
Craft Storage inspiration is sitting on your shelf…re-think those jars, cups & canisters you’re no longer using!

Hi Crafters!

It’s Kim from Stamping Imperfection here to share some quick and easy ideas to corral your tools, ribbons and embellishments.

Do you ever feel like it would feel great to get organized, but you’re not sure where to start and the prices on the fancy organizing tools hold you back?

I know exactly how you feel!

I’ve been re-designing my crafting space to have a more cohesive look.  In the process, I’ve been searching for ways to organize my stash that won’t break the bank.

I re-discovered this great post on CSI featuring Laura Vegas and her craft room: Storage In Every Nook & Cranny

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Use:  Jars, Cups & Containers - Mason Jar Storage

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-Purpose & Re-Use: Jars, Cups & Containers – Mason Jar Storage

This is a beautifully cohesive look. I love the color this adds to a craft room!

The added advantage to using clear jars is that you can see exactly what you have and where it is!  You don’t need a color coded map to find things!

(Don’t laugh, I’ve seen craft rooms that have those!)

 

Another CSI post from ages ago led me to find crafters using salt and pepper shakers to store glitter!

Check out the original post: Glitter Storage With A Vintage Twist where Liz from the Pink Petticoat blog shared this great idea!

Need a clever idea for kids’ craft supplies?

Check out this cute jar storage idea I found on Pinterest via House to Home UK:

Craft Storage:  Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use:  Jars, Cups & Canisters - Kids Crafts

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use: Jars, Cups & Canisters – Kids Craft

Image Source: House to Home UK via Pinterest

Simply glue a kids’ toy to the jar lid and paint it!

So simple, easy to find your things, and it looks great on a shelf or a desk.


I had two great finds of my own while browsing the local hardware store.

(I teach physics and I craft so that means that I love browsing hardware stores!)

I’ve been looking for something to replace the plastic cup that I use to hold my must-have tools on my studio work table and I found this great glass mug for just a couple of dollars:

Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use: Jars, Cups & Canisters - Glass Cup for Tool Storage

Of course, I added some stamping and embellishments to dress it up.

You can check out the finished product on my blog at Stamping Imperfection!


Another find for me was a giant Mason Jar.

I’ve been looking for a pretty way to store retired ribbons that I can’t use on my blog anymore, but which I still plan to craft with.

I bought one jar, but I’ll be going back tomorrow for a couple more of these!

These will look great on a shelf and they will make it easy to find my older ribbons.

Organizing Tips & Tricks – Paper Scraps

Organizing Tips & Tricks – Paper Scraps
Organizing and storage ideas, and solutions for storing, locating and using your scraps!

At the moment I am crafting in a temporary space and I don’t have room for all my usual furniture, which includes my little Bisley drawer unit where I keep my scraps.

I’m just using a storage box to keep them in, and since I am too lazy to rummage through it, it’s overflowing with scraps I should be using instead of cutting into new sheets!

So my tip for today is to get your scraps organised!

You’ll definitely find that if you organise your scraps by colour you will use them much more often.

Organizing Tips & Tricks - Bisley Drawer Unit (image)

Organizing Tips & Tricks – Bisley Drawer Unit

This Bisley drawer unit is the one I use.

As you can see, for each colour I have both a plain, and a polka-dot labelled drawer.

I keep plain sheets in one drawer and patterned paper in the other – as a result I can really quickly find a piece of paper or cardstock for matting, die-cutting or stamping without cutting into a precious new sheet!

If you don’t have space for a drawer unit, there are other options for keeping your scraps organised.

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets
Craftroom organization solutions round-up – you’ve got sticker sheets, we’ve got storage!

An overwhleming number of alpha, phrase and image sticker sheets got you wondering how you’ll keep track of them all and find what you need, when you need it?

Or, maybe you’re just starting your “collection?”

Well, whether you’ve got sticker sheets coming out your ears or you’re just now inspired to go find some for your papercrafting endeavors, we’ve got solutions to suit your current, and future needs.

And, they’re all super reasonable!


We’re sharing a collection of storage options that I recently spotted at Target and there’s a style and look for everyone!

And, I made sure to include the price labels so you can see how much each option will cost.

Don’t have a Target near you?

No worries, these types of containers are available at other retailers, both brick-and-mortar stores and online.


Now let’s take a look at each storage option…

Option One: Canvas Media Bin

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solution Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Canvas Media Bin (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Canvas Media Bin

These stacking units are not only a perfect shape and size for sticker sheets like Thickers, they’re sturdy and attractive.

The grey bins are perfect for blending into most craft rooms.

Of course, you could also paint or dye them to match any decor.

Break out the mists!

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solution Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Canvas Media Bin, Inside (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Canvas Media Bin, Inside

You could also stand these on end and store a variety of other craft supplies in them!


Option Two: Woven White Plastic Bin

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solution Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Woven White Plastic Bin (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Woven White Plastic Bin

This unit is perfect for larger/wider sticker sheets, and for 6′ x 6″ or 8″ x 8″ paper pads.

And of course white goes with ANY decor!


Option Three: Plastic Utility Tub

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solution Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Plastic Utility Tub (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Plastic Utility Tub

These are super affordable and their clear nature would make finding exactly what you’re looking for quick and easy.

I’ve used this type of unit (in clear) for other crafting supplies and I love them.

What do you think, are these for you?


Option Four: Itso Canvas Quarter Storage Bin

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solution Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Itso Canvas Quarter Storage Bin (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Itso Canvas Quarter Storage Bin

I love the look of these – they’d fit in well in a craft room or most any other area of a home.

No dedicated craft space?

These could blend right in in a living room, dining room, den or guest bedroom.

They’re also very lightweight and could easily be hauled off to a crop of other crafting getaway and placed on your work area, keeping your sticker sheets or other supplies right at hand.

The only downside to these is that they angle in at the bottom, meaning only more narrow sticker sheets will fit in them.


Option Five: Rubbermaid Medium Bento Box

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Rubbermaid Medium Bento Box (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Rubbermaid Medium Bento Box

This unit is super sturdy and has wonderful adjustable dividers inside (see the image below).

It’s a bit wider than standard sticker sheets, meaning it’ll hold wider sticker sheets.

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Rubbermaid Medium Bento Box, Inside (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Rubbermaid Medium Bento Box, Inside

And, like a previous option (shared above) these could be painted or dyed to match your craft space decor or theme.

Mixed media project anyone?


Option Six: Small Lined Basket

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Small Lined Basket (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Small Lined Basket

Since my craft room is filled with black furnishings, with splashes of other colors (and soon some of my Disney memorabilia!), this was one of my favorite options.

I like the fabric liners and could use these not just for sticker sheets, but for embossing folders, stamp sets, large dies and small paper pads.

How about you – do you like this option?

And if so, how would you use it?


Option Seven: Media Bin Basket

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Media Bin Basket (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Media Bin Basket

These baskets are even nicer in person!

If you’re going for a natural, cozy look, these might be a good choice.

These could also be hung up and used for storing a variety of other supplies.

Create a few cute tags and tie them on to the handles and you’ll never have a hard time finding your favorite crafting supplies.

One caveat: I wouldn’t recommend these for storing delicate items, such as fabrics or fibers, because those items could get snagged.


Option Eight: Striped Canvas CD/DVD Box

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Striped Canvas CD DVD Box (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Striped Canvas CD DVD Box

The handles on these would make it easy to retrieve them from high shelves or cubbies, and the look is casual, yet polished.

If you’re crafting in a dual-purpose space, this style of bin would enable you to store your stickers (and other supplies) without the space having an “identity crisis.”

Keeping your clear or cling-mounted stamps in CD or DVD cases?

This solution is ideal for storing them!


Option Nine: Striped Plastic Utility Tub

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Striped Plastic Utility Tub (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Striped Plastic Utility Tub

OK, this solution is a bit unlike the others in that it comes with a lid and is a bit wider than the others, but it would also work for storing stickers.

And if you have shorter sheets (or sheets you’ve cut down after using some of the stickers), you could store these with the lids in place and stack them, meaning more efficient use of space.

These come in several color options too!


Option Ten: Sterilite White Utility Tub

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - Sterilite White Utility Tub (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – Sterilite White Utility Tub

OK, this is a very simple (more utilitarian) bin style, but it does have a nice spot for labeling on the front (great for those who easily forget what’s inside storage containers).

And, it’s an ideal size and shape for sticker sheets, like the Thickers alphabet stickers from companies like American Crafts.

If plastic and simple are what you’re looking for, this may be a good option.


Option Eleven: iDesign Clear Plastic Bin

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up - Sticker Sheets - iDesign Clear Plastic Bin (image)

Craftroom Organization: Storage Solutions Round-Up – Sticker Sheets – iDesign Clear Plastic Bin

OK, this solution is one I LOVE!

I love that these can be easily labeled and pulled out from where they’re stored.

Yes, many of the other options above have these same features, but the fact that these are clear means you can see, at a glance, exactly what’s inside, without having to pull them out or remove a lid.

And this company makes bins in a variety of shapes and sizes, meaning your room can be filled with a coordinated storage solution “style.”

That makes my heart happy – how about yours?

Well, that’s it for this round-up of sticker sheet storage options.

We’d love to hear your thoughts,
and see what you’ve chosen to use for storing sticker sheets.

Please share your thoughts in the comments below.

Unique Storage Ideas – more ideas for your craft room and craft supplies!

How many of you have enjoyed our Unique Storage Ideas posts?

Are you looking for something “unique” for your craft room or art studio?

A single item to add some character or to inspire the “theme” of your creative space?

Or, maybe a collection of items to create a fresh look and feel for your space?

Well, we’ve got more!

We’re sharing more non-traditional storage solutions, all in an effort to help you love your space and make you more productive when you’re in it.

How do great storage ideas help with productivity?

Well, when you love your space, you want to be in it, right?

And when you can easily find – and put away – your tools and supplies, you have more time for creating!


The following items were spotted at a Minnesota Hobby Lobby I visited during my travels and I thought you might like to check them out.

Perhaps they’re just what you’re looking for and you can find them at your local store.

Or, maybe they’ll spark an idea – perhaps a way to re-purpose something you have on hand, or to inspire you to start hunting for a similar solution, one that’s ideal for what you need to organize and store!


Now again, we know there’ll be at least a few of you who don’t have a Hobby Lobby near you, or who may not be able to find these exact items at your local store.

We’re sharing these simply to give you ideas about how you can use unique storage items and furnishings that are not specific to craft room and/or crafting supply organization, items that could liven up your space, give it a little pizzazz!

And if you do have a local store that carries one or more of these items, and it’d/they’d be ideal for your needs, well that’s even better!


Along with each item, I’ve again shared my thoughts on what would best fit in that type of organizational unit, as well as characteristics of the unit so you can look for these same qualities in products and furnishings you might come across where you live (and bargain hunt!).

I’ve also shared potential “cons” to using this type of unit for particular items, if there are any.

And, because we had a request from one of our readers (that’s YOU!) to include the prices when we share items such as these, the prices are also included.

Yup, we listen!


And now, let’s take a look at each storage idea and chat about how it could be used…

Option One: Wooden Storage Bench

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Wooden Bench Unit with Drawers

This unit is ideal for storing lots of different items, and providing seating, or a storage platform for crafting machines and tools (die cutting machines, cutters, sewing machines, etc.).

The drawers are quite large and would be great for the following: folded fabrics and sewing or quilting patterns; idea or pattern books; tall stamp sets, embossing folders or die sets; small paper pads; jewelry findings in clear plasic containers; fibers and yarn; and, so much more!

If you’re limited on space in your craft room and need to “spread out” beyond your craft room walls, or you don’t have a dedicated craft space and you have to find a way to incorporate your stash into your living space, this could be great for stashing the goods in other areas of your home.

Potential Cons:
Now I will share that the drawers are a bit rough inside, so you’ll need to line them if you plan to store delicate fabrics or fibers in them.

And if you strictly adhere to a policy of only using acid-free papers in your papercrafting projects, then you’ll want to avoid storing your papers in wooden storage.

Price: $181.99 (That’s a bit steep in my book – you may be able to find a similar unit for less.)


Option Two: White Shabby Chic
 Wooden Drawer Unit

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – White 5-Drawer Wooden Unit

This is another unit that provides quite a bit of storage – and it’d look great in a shabby chic room!

My first thought was to use this for dies and embossing folders, or small pads of paper, for papercrafting.

But it’d also be great for: fat quarters; jewelry-making supplies; supplies and tools for embroidery, cross-stitch or needlepoint; paints and the associated supplies and papers; drawing tools and supplies; and, even your photos, stored in sleeves or containers.

Of course you could also change up the look of this unit with a quick coat of paint – white’s easy to cover and the drawers slide out, providing you easy access to all sides of the drawers and the frame they slide into!

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items - Hobby Lobby Take II - White 5-Drawers Wooden Unit, Inside (image)

Potential Cons:
Just like with the bench unit above, you may need to line the drawers if you plan to store delicate fabrics or fibers in them.

And again, if you strictly adhere to a policy of only using acid-free papers in your papercrafting projects, then this isn’t the best solution for storing your papers.

Price: $209.99 (In person, this is a really nice piece and it could be re-purposed as a dresser or used as storage for linens if and when you no longer need it for your crafting supplies).


Option Three: Multi-Tier Basket Tower

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items - Hobby Lobby Take II - Metal Baskets Unit (image)

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Metal Baskets Unit

The great thing about this unit is that it’s quite narrow, but could hold quite a lot!

Think about narrow, unused space that could house a unit like this – the fact that it’s mostly a metal frame means it won’t overpower a crowded space.

And, the front cross-bars could provide additional storage – simply use metal curtain rings to hang supplies for easy access.

The way this is constructed means you can easily see what’s inside each basket, which is perfect for those who need to see what they have in order to recall what they own and easily find it.

I can see fibers and yarn, rubber stamps and large ink pads, and cardmaking paper goods fitting nicely in these baskets.

What would you store in here?

We’d love to hear YOUR ideas!

Potential Cons:
I wouldn’t recommend storing items that  would be harmed by light or dust in this type of unit, and I wouldn’t recommend this type of unit if you have small kids or pets – the easy access you’re attracted to is also attractive to little fingers, curious kitties and mischievous puppies!

Price: $83.99 (This unit appears to be very well made and I think the price is reasonable – what do you think?)


Option Four: Wooden Unit With Baskets

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items - Hobby Lobby Take II - Wooden 8-Basket Unit (image)

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Wooden 8-Basket Unit

This unit won my heart!

I love the size of it and the shape of the baskets – my papercrafting supplies would love to live in here!

I can imagine this as a die-cutting station, with the machine(s) living on top, the mats hung from the sides, and the dies, embossing folders and machine supplies stored inside the basket drawers – the drawers are the perfect height for most embossing folders and dies.

Into sewing or quilting?

Place your machine on top; scissors, rotary cutters and notions in the smaller drawers; folded fabrics or fat quarters in the larger drawers; and, cutting mats or quilting templates on hooks on the sides. Voila!

Creating “stations” for your crafting endeavors means everything you need for a particular type of project is all in one place – again, making you more productive!

Potential Cons:
I wouldn’t store paper in fiber baskets – it’s not “safe” (if you’re concerned about the longevity of your papercrafted projects).

Nor would I store fibers, yarns or delicate fabrics in them (they could easily snag your beloved treasures, making them unusable).

That said, you could line the baskets, or use plastic containers within them, to safely house your crafting supplies.

Price: $139.99 (This unit is well made and I think it’s a reasonable price – do you?)

 

Option Five: Wooden 11-Drawer Unit (w/Chalk-Front Drawers)

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items - Hobby Lobby Take II - Wooden 11 Drawer Unit (image)

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Wooden 11 Drawer Unit

O.k., first let me apologize for the bad lighting on this picture – yikes!

The sun was screaming through the store window and, after several attempts at re-positioning this unit, this is as good as it got!

Shameful photography and editing, but I had to share it with you nonetheless.

What I love about this unit is that it’d be perfect as a Project Life® station!

The upper drawers are sized well for the 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ journaling cards, washi tape rolls (organized in narrow drawer dividers) and/or photos and smaller bits of memorabilia; the lower, larger drawers could easily hold additional PL-project supplies (journaling stamps and acrylic blocks, stamp pads, cutting tools, sticky notes, paper pads, etc.); and, the top is a great size for laying open a 12″ x 12″ album so you can easily work on your PL project whenever you have a free moment.

Plus, the chalkboard drawer fronts can be easily labeled, and re-labeled as your needs change.

Have quite a collection of stamping supplies?

These drawers would hold a lot of inks pads, rubber stamps and/or small stamps and stamp sets.

I can also see this making sense in a sewing room – great storage for all those notions!

Potential Cons:
Again, the wooden drawers could damage paper goods over time.

And, drawer labeling done with actual chalk (rather than chalk markers) could be accidentally erased.

Price: $118.99 (This is quite possibly the best bargain in the bunch!)


Option Six: Wooden 18-Drawer Unit

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Wooden 18-Drawer Unit

If you’ve long been lusting after a vintage library cabinet and it’s just not in the budget (they can be pricey!), then this just might suffice.

Like the unit above, this unit could be great for papercrafting projects like Project Life® and stamping, as well as for sewing notions.

But, it could also be a great place to store jewelry-making supplies, stored by type, size, style, color, price or manufacturer, and easily labeled using the nice metal frames on the fronts of the drawers.

I have a similar unit in which I store office supplies, business cards, small empty tins, zip-top baggies and metal findings (my Tim Holtz findings enjoy a dedicated row of drawers!).

What do ya think – is this one for you? And if so, how would you use it?

Don’t forget: a quick coat of paint could completely change the look of this little baby! 

Potential Cons:
The drawers on this particular unit were a bit wonky – you’d want to check all the drawers in a similar unit to make sure they slide in and out easily.

I swapped a few around and was able to get a good fit on each drawer – an easy fix!

Price: $139.99 (Again, reasonable, but I would want a little bit better finish for the price, or lower price for the level of finish.)


Option Seven: Wooden 5-Drawer Unit on Casters

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items - Hobby Lobby Take II - Wooden 5-Drawers Unit (image)

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Wooden 5-Drawer Unit On Casters

I would love a unit like this for my adhesives!

I have quite a collection of different types stored in a similar unit, but my unit isn’t mobile so I end up running back and forth a lot during project creation (not efficient use of my creative time!).

Ding!

Idea Time: I may just add casters to mine!

This unit would work well for anything short and/or that can be laid on its side, as long as you can quickly and easily see what’s in the drawer without a bunch of shuffling of items.

After all, we want to make it easy on ourselves and spend our time creating, not searching or rearranging, right?

These drawers could work well for supplies for embroidery, cross-stitch and needlepoint; or quilling; or, for pens, pencils and art markers used for art journaling and/or drawing.

They’d also be ideal for jewelry-making tools and beads and findings, as well as your finished creations and the supplies to price and display them.

How would you use this type of unit?

Potential Cons:
Because of the way the drawers slide into the frame, you’d need to make sure your stored items lie flat and clear the upper edge of the frame so they don’t get caught when you push the drawers in and pull them out – not a problem, just a consideration if you’re not neat in the way you replace items after using them.

Price: $97.99 (Reasonable considering the quality – comparable units may be available for less. What do you think?)


Option Eight: Multi-Colored Thin-Drawer Unit

Craftroom Storage: Unique Items – Hobby Lobby Take II – Multi-Colored Thin-Drawer Unit

Oh be still my heart…again! I so wanted to take this home with me!

It’s a good thing I’m traveling (and it wouldn’t make sense to pay to ship this) ’cause I’m a sucker for this type of drawer unit – you too?

I must have owned a print shop at one time because I love printers trays and blocks and this type of drawer unit.

This would be perfect for setting up “color drawers,” drawers in which papercrafting embellishments of all types are sorted by color, making it easy to see at a glance every type of embellishment you own in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, etc.

This would also work for storing: wood-mounted stamps and ink pads; sheets of specialty papers; knitting needles and crochet hooks and the accompanying accessories (stitch counters, etc.); paint brushes; art pens, pencils and markers and accompanying supplies (erasers, sharpeners, stubs, etc.); tubes of liquid adhesive; adhesive runners and refills; spools or bobbins of thread (organized in drawer dividers or baggies); and, anything else that doesn’t require much drawer height.

And finally, how cool would this be for jewelry-making supplies and finished pieces? PER-FECT!

Wjat do you think – is this the type of craft storage unit you’d immediately fall head over heals in love with, just like I did?

How would you use this drawer unit if you had one?

Well, that’s it for another round of unique storage items.

We’d love to hear your thoughts,
