If you’re like me, then you have a LOT of crafty
crap priceless tools and supplies. Being as that we were tight on space, I had to get creative with where to house all these amazing tools, supplies, and projects and so I turned to an underutilized coat closet just off the kitchen. I normally craft at my dining room table and even though I know my family LOVED pushing aside my crafty things at dinner time (NOT!) I decided the underutilized coat closet would be renamed – wait for it – THE CRAFT CLOSET! Cute, huh?
Okay, so first let’s take a look at what I was working with. Some time before the organization actually happened, my husband installed just regular shelves inside the closet using supplies from Home Depot.
Not cute, huh? I had lazily thrown my supplies and tools in there and it was just not inspiring at all. Not to mention that nothing actually had a SPOT, so when it came time to find something, I was left searching and searching, which isn’t fun. So, I took my butt over to Target and got some nifty storage boxes, magazine holders, and labels and then I got to work. I knew I wanted to put the things I use the most at eye level which would be my Cricut and stamp stuff. I also knew I needed my box with all my paper on the ground because it was heavy and that way I could just slide it out. Lastly, my tall mobile caddies needed to go at the top because they took up the most vertical space and they were fairly light to get down.
I also hung a shoe rack thingy (Bed Bath and Beyond – don’t forget your coupon!) over the door for all my punches. The clear-ish box next to the Cricut holds my cord for the Cricut. I also went to the Dollar Tree and got some tiny buckets for teeny tiny things that needed a home.
Here is a breakdown of each shelf and what I found most useful to group together:
And let’s do one more “Before/After” picture just for fun and to show how great it looks compared to how awful and unorganized it looked before.
Well, that’s it. So much more inspiring and tidy! If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would be so appreciative if you shared it, or pinned it, or whatever suits your fancy. I hope to see you back soon. Thanks for stopping by!
