4 Easy Organizing Ideas For Your Craft Room (I’m Letting You Look In My Drawers!)


Ready to organize your craft room?  Here are 4 ideas that I utilize in my craft room to help keep me organized.

ONE:
Is your rubber stamp collection out of hand?  Here’s a trick to help corral all those pieces.

I use inexpensive plastic frames turned upside down for rubber stamp storage.  If you don’t want to purchase these frames, use shoebox lids…they’re free!

You don’t have to worry about ink getting on things and they fit nicely in drawers.  They are also easy to transport when you need to use them.  Just grab the picture-frame-turned-tray and go!

TWO:
Use vintage cups and saucers to organize small items in your drawers.

I found this charming set of French Limoges custard cups and saucers and they give me something pretty to look at when I’m searching for small pieces.

Hint:  These are also great for holding jewelry in your boudoir drawers.

THREE:
Use vintage metal tole pieces and muffin tins to hold all sorts of crafting materials.

A vintage tole napkin holder now holds my Valentine gift bags that I’ll be using next month.

I keep all kinds of tags in this tole container.

I have several muffin tins that I use in and out of drawers.  I also have some that I have spray painted white.

FOUR:

A vintage train rack and wooden hangers help keep pretty ribbons tidy.

I wrap ribbon around manilla or white card tags and use jute to tie them to vintage wooden painted hangers.

I also organize items in vintage containers. Pencils, markers, etc. fit into sugar bowls, mustard crocks, etc. When I am thrifting and see something unique, I try to envision how to use it for a different purpose. Storage can be pretty or boring and pretty wins.

The stuff in my drawers must not be cute cuz when I try to organize it, I have to put it all right back where I took it out. I guess no one will ever look in my drawers!

This is so pretty Kim and what a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. I love the little cups where you have your buttons!
