Homemade Crafty Storage Solutions
Instead of spending a fortune on storage for your crafty treasures, stop for a minute and have a look at what's already there....
I "borrowed" the removable plastic part (meant for knives, forks etc.) out of my dishwasher.
I've managed to easily fit 4 full sets brush markers...2 full sets permanent markers...15 various sized paint brushes...2 large pair & 2 smaller pair scissors...2 cutting knives..30 prisma colour pencils...3 full sets water colour pencils...5 pairs tweezers...2 pokey tools...large bone folder...hot foil pen...and some other bits and peices - WOW!
I also put lenghts of 'wire' meant for net curtains flat accross my wall to hang ribbon from so I can see at a glance what I've got, it looks really pretty too.
Also adorning my walls are several hanging pockets, the ones made from cotton or some kind of material like that,
The pockets hold my 8x8, 6x6 and the DCWV patterned paper packs nicely.
I can then stand back and see what looks good with what!
It's also really good for new ideas and inspiration.
My work desk is an old computer table. The slide out shelf is great for cutting mats, paper scraps ect.
I've filled the CD rack/tower up with clear CD cases that I use to store all my unmounted stamps in.
The rest of the space underneath is filled with inexpensive plastic boxes/tubs filled with all sorts of crafty wonders!
There's also all the fun of altering your new storage solutions too!
WOW!!! What I wouldn't give to see your craft room...it sounds amazing and packed to the brim with lots of wonderful "stash".
Thanks for all these wonderful storage ideas.
