Knitting Storage Totes Are A Great Idea
Large tote bags like these, are brilliant for storing a wide range of things from children’s toys to nightwear, shoes, and towels. If you want to store yarn, definitely go for a waterproof bag. Just in case. There was an incident with coffee and I still get emotional talking about it.
They’re also highly convenient as they can be easily hung from pegs on the back of the door (check these out for pretty!) meaning they won’t take up much excess room at all.
Furthermore, tote bags are lightweight and easy to carry around so can be taken with you on family holidays without much problem!
Spinning Stationery Organizer
I own a gigantic version of this from approximately It stores pretty much.. all of my pens. Which is ideal. If you need to have all of your office supplies in one place, instead of everywhere else in your home, grab one of these mini carousels!
Torie Jayne's Acrylic Drawers
I’ve been following Torie Jayne for years and I’m sure you can see why!
Her little sewing corner is absolutely beautiful and full of my favouritepastel shades.
Go up the wall with shelving and use acrylic drawers and organization to store your supplies.
Torie Jayne also has a giant dresser for her supplies and uses hooks and little wire baskets to store her fabric. Are we even going to talk about those Trunks?! Holy crap! They’re amazing! I’m in love with those colours. They’re my go to shades for colour meditations.
This craft room is absolutely stunning!
Unfortunately I’ve been unable to find a source for this image but of course, we spy the insanely popular Ikea Raskog cart!
The fact that picture ledges like these, have been used up the wall as additional storage really impresses me.
I have some of these ledges and it’s a great way to optimize wall space.
If you flip the ledges upside down then you avoid the little lip and get even more space.
Pastel shades are my favourite so this is a complete wall of happiness for me. Once you find the crates that you want to use, stock up on chalk paint!
Vintage Desk Organizer
I’ve featured something similar to this nifty organizer in the post 15 Amazing Craft Storage Ideas To Steal Now! for storing washi tape (my FAVOURITE type of stationery).
Using a DIY dowel rod organizer for organizing your sewing thread is a genius idea!!

The Secret Compartment Chair
Furniture takes up quite a bit of floor space, so if you’re thinking about buying new chairs, a bed or suite, look for designs with plenty of hidden storage. They’re my true secret weapon.
Sofas with storage underneath the seats are great for keeping everything from books to newspapers, and beds with pull out drawers often have the capacity to store spare bed sheets and pillow covers.
You can always customise your own chair like this fabulous little kiddos chair by Craptastic Katie.
Conquering the Fabric Pile
Don’t forget to add handles like these so you can pull it in and out easily! I love this idea and would love to create some units like those for the cupboard under our stairs. It has truly inspired me. Thanks Katie from Smile Like You Mean It Blog! These are my absolute favourite handles, they look so fancy!
Crates On Wall
There are many storage solutions for small spaces, but if you are pushed for space it’s well worth putting up some sturdy shelves.
Shelves or crates can be placed on any empty wall and have the ability to hold everything from photographs and ornaments to DVDs and folders.
What’s more, when you’re thinking about where to put the shelves, don’t forget about wasted wall space which often goes unused.
Flip Down Wall Art Desk
Ana White creates the most amazing DIY projects that double up as craft furniture!
I’m a huge fan of this blog and the instructions are very straight forward.
If you don’t feel like building one of these, I would definitely go for the lazy girl’s option! You can purchase similar ones here.
Organised Sewing Supplies
Her quilting blog is incredible!!! It’s hard not to adore her little sewing space with lots of organization!
I’m a huge fan of modular storage, especially the one from Decor by the Sea Shore!
Luckily I own a huge Ikea Kallax unit like this one, that stores all of my craft supplies.

Craft Room In A Small Space
I am in love with the SewCanDo Small space sewing nook! Everything has been beautifully organised with a display desk from the Original Scrapbox Company, unfortunately, it’s no longer available but they have an amazing solution to keep your sewing accoutrements compact. But scroll up and check out the sewing box!
I need to decorate the small bedroom first before we see what money is left over for even more craft room furniture! We are now short on space so a little hustling will have to happen for sure.

Craft Room Organization - Paint Storage Box
This DIY Wine crate storage is simply fabulous! You can buy similar crates right here.
Personally, I wouldn’t be bothered to create one of these because I’m incredibly lazy but it’s a really good tutorial.
Giant Peg Board
Going up the walls and using a giant pegboard is a great idea for utilizing every available inch of space. I freakin love that pegboard AND I have that little spinning stationery carousel. It’s no longer available to purchase but this is a similar version if it had been hit by a ray gun and made smaller.
If you enjoy this post of excellent storage solutions, I would be so grateful if you would share it with your friends! Especially if they need help with their storage organization.
