Craft Room Organization Ideas



Today, I thought I would share some photos from my craft studio.  I have 2 separate areas- one for fabric, one for paper products.  I'll show you the fabric storage first.

This is actually a shoe cupboard that I found at home depot in the closet organizer section.  I use it for smaller scraps of fabric, and have tried to separated the sections into different colors. 


This bookshelf is for larger cuts of fabric.  The bottom is filled with Minky Chenille, so it's great to have a large area for that.  The top is at least 1 yard cuts, and I've wrapped them around acid free Comic Magazine boards (purchased at a Comic book store in Halifax).  Here's a closer photo of the mini bolts.


Now, on to the paper/stamp side.  I had my father-in-law and brother-in-law build me some shelving for the stamps and 12 x 12 paper holders.  I don't know what I would do without these shelves.


Underneath the shelves for the wood mounted stamps, I hung an old curtain rod, and put a ton of pinch clips on it.  I clip all my sets of stickers and rub ons here.

Beside the stamp shelf, I hung up a pegboard, it houses all sorts of small items and my rulers for quilting.  Great place to hang scissors/cutters and all sorts of things that little hands should not be touching.
To the left of the peg board is punch storage.  Again, I used 2 old curtain rods tucked close to the wall and the punches are nestled nicely in the corner.
My paper craft table is just a full sheet of MDF with trim on the front, then I glued some fabric on the back side of the trim.  We laid that on top of 2 shelves (again, thank you Poppy!).
There are lots of cute storage baskets available for cheap at grocery stores and office supply stores, you just have to look around. 



I use this for craft show table display, but it comes in handy to store clear stamps by Stampin Up!

Hopefully, you found some of these ideas helpful, I'd love to know of any storage solutions that work for you too.  Have a great day!!  Linking up to the Needle and Thread Network

LOVE your space! I've been reorganizing mine with comic book boards too. I love seeing the fabric on the vertical. Thanks for sharing it!

Your space is tidy. I clean and then 10 minutes later I drag stuff out on the open table or ironing board.
