I’ve decided that it’s time to share some of the amazing storage ideas for the Craft Room and hopefully it will motivate me to tidy up.
I desperately need to.

24 Amazing Storage Ideas That You Will Freakin’ Love!
My craft room is coming down with craft supplies, and I love finding new ways to organise my favourite products.
The above image is of Leenah’s desk from Finding Nana; I love this lady!
A pure talent and I’m very envious of her organising skills.
My 3 Favourite Storage Options From This Post:
1. Putting these Alex drawers* on tall legs and adding this type of desktop storage* is genius.
2.Use tiered snap ware storage* (this seems to be the highest rated & highest quality) for projects that you can hide in a closet.
3.Using this kind of divided storage crate* is perfect for storing paints or glimmer misting sprays
I’ve been trying to find this Ikea cabinet for ages, it’s no longer being made, and I wish it were!
First craft storage idea – Wall shelves and baskets
It’s gorgeous, and I love all of the baskets like these* that Leenah uses to organise her supplies.
I had to get my hands on one of those Smiggle cases* and I LOVE it! It holds all of my lettering supplies.
Plenty Of Storage Under This Extra Long Desk
I had to share this little room because that stool almost matches my fabulous vintage chair that I found on Gumtree!
I love those little white drawers underneath the desk, I can’t find drawers the same but I’ve found some that are quite similar distressed style drawers* available on Amazon. Speaking of desks… have you seen this Crea Ultimate Crafting desk?! Be still my beating heart! It has SO much storage!!!
The palette style wood on the wall with hooks was a great idea for hanging storage. Via this link.
Little drawer units* (there are some great options on Amazon).
Custom Built Drawers Are A Clever Use Of Space
These marvellous custom-built drawers are from Stephanie Lynn. I thought it was a very good idea to add drawer dividers to the drawers.
Use Vintage Luggage & Vanity Cases For On The Go Crafting
This is my Samsonite case that I empty out and refill with whatever craft supplies I need for a project I am working on. I’m obsessed with this train case that I recently discovered and it’s next on my wishlist.
The pink ones are to die for!
Vanity cases make great, travel-friendly craft storage!Click To Tweet
Small wooden trugs* make great storage for ribbons* and spools*.
Aren’t Eva’s ideas beautiful? Her craft room is to die for! Visit the minty house blog
Wire Baskets just like these* make gorgeous storage for fabric.
And now we get to my newest favourite blog!
Magda Mizera is an excellent scrapbooker and crafter and has lovely craft storage on her desk.
Go and find Jars*, tins* and old wooden boxes* to store your crafty goodies! I love this little box with her Heidi Swapp Color Shine Sprays*. The blue Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray is THE most incredible, intense shade of metallic blue! I’d love a car in that shade.
This desk via Cotton Blue is fabulous!
Use the top of a dressing table (can be purchased separately).
Fabric & Ribbons Galore
I know this is a shop… but I thought the ribbon storage and fabric on bolts was a very inspiring way to display your fabric and ribbon stash. Via this link.
I love Maureen Mae’s craft room, and I love the consistency in the jars, i.e., not all mixed.
Two set styles in this image and arranged in a rather lovely manner!
Visit Maureen Mae’s Flickr page.
Go Higher Baby
I really love how these Alex drawers* have been put on a table to make them at a more manageable height.
These geometric style custom drawer knobs are rather unique aren’t they. They’re made from wooden blocks and just painted.
I also love how the table top Ikea Moppe drawers* have been painted in pastel shades.
The little shelving units and lots of drawers are excellent and very necessary in any craft room. Via Marga Marina
Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind
This would be perfect for me to organise my December daily art supplies.
This post was from me, using Cath Kidston Tupperware, washi tape and parcel tags for ribbons, trims and seam binding storage.
Get cute lunch boxes like these to use as storage for your ribbons!!
My ribbons in my little Cath Kidston lunch box from the 2012 range.
Make Use Of Divided Crates
Use A Tiered Cupcake Stand
I love them because they’re affordable!
This is a marvellous custom built (by a family member) storage rack for all these tickets!
Visit Janna’s blog to see all her lovely craft storage.
There are more photos of her studio on her Instagram feed.
The little tin buckets are a cute way to store tapes and small things; I’d love in pastel shades, please.
Divided Metal Tins
Barbara Picnic (amazing name) has a blog with an amazing name – The Picnic Basket; I love her organised counter. Initially, I thought these were spray painted vintage bread tins but they’re containers from the Land Of Nod.
Customise A Closet
I love it! It’s such a bright space, and I began organising all of my supplies in take-out containers you can buy from the £/$ stores. Via Armelle Blog.
I’ve since updated to sturdier plastic storage like thise* after the lids became damaged a little too easily and split completely.
Vintage Market baskets are great ideas for wallpaper storage!
A rather smart idea – wire wall storage used as craft storage! Via Joss and Main. I checked out some wire wall storage, and there are some copper coloured ones to die for!
I think I’m going to have to look for some bottle crates like this one.
