Peacefully Organized! {Bethany at Pitter & Glink}

Let’s give a warm Craft Storage Ideas welcome to Bethany Lee of Pitter & Glink!  You are going to fall in love with her studio.  I’d like to move in. 🙂

____________________________

I’m Bethany–a wife, mom to a furry “dog-ter,” English teacher, crafter, blogger, want-be-decorator, aspiring photographer, and costume jewelry lover.  It’s my desire to leave the world a little more beautiful than I found it.

In my craft room, I store supplies mainly in the hutch, closet, and desk.  I’m the kind of crafter who likes to be able to easily see my supplies.  If I can’t, I forget what I have to work with.  Having shelves in my closet and having glass doors on the top of my hutch make it very easy for me to see the supplies I have.  Using individual containers for certain types of supplies also helps keep me organized since I’m not a “one-craft pony.”

If it were up to me, I would have hung some shelves or other storage pieces on my walls.  My home is older and my walls are made of plaster, so hanging items on the wall is a headache.  I normally only hang items for which I can use Command Adhesive strips.

1. What kind of budget did you have when organizing your space?

Honestly, my budget was pretty non-existent.  I spent the least amount of money that I possibly could by doing almost everything myself, utilizing items I already had on hand, and making-over thrift store items.  Every piece of furniture in the room is either a DIY or a revamp, and most of the decor pieces are either thrift store finds or hand-me-downs from my grandmother.  And, well, there is that stool from my neighbor’s trash…

2. What was/is your greatest challenge?

My greatest challenge was the large amount of crafting supplies that I have.  I had to make them all fit in an organized way into a small room.  Making over the hutch from my grandmother’s house was a life-saver!  If it wasn’t for that piece, I don’t know that I would have been able to organize the room.

3. Are you a “organize it once” kind of girl, or are your storage solutions constantly evolving?

I like to “organize it once,” but since I’m a self-proclaimed craft supply hoarder, I am constantly trying to find ways to make the new stuff I buy fit without sacrificing the peaceful, organized look of the room.

4. What is one thing you’d like to improve about your storage/organization?

The plastic shelves in my closet are useful, but I really wish I could outfit the entire closet with some type of closet organization unit.  I would have so much more room to store things!
