Have you ever wanted your craft room to look like all those amazing and beautiful ones you see every day on TV or in magazines? Trust me I have it too. I have so many crafting materials that they are slowly taking over the whole room, so I’m afraid they will take over my whole house soon if I don’t do something about it.
Each craft room is unique and is used for different activities, thus requiring different approaches. If you’re a sewer, for example, then your biggest problem is probably too many spools of thread, needles, scissors, sequins, and many more tools. If you are an art lover, you may have a collection of brushes, an unknown number of different shades of paints, sketchbooks, etc. which also needs to be stored. However, there is another option. You may be a lover of all crafts. If you love sewing, painting, knitting, and anything else you can think of, you definitely need some ideas to make your craft room look neater and more organized.
Most of the ideas that I am going to share with you are cheap and easy to take advantage of. Take a look at these ideas and choose the one that best suits your taste.
I had been struggling to find an easy and convenient way to organize and store my craft paints. Like every painter, I wanted to be able to make my choice easier when choosing a color, without having to search forever in a box or drawer. So I think I finally found my way!
I bought several PVC pipe fittings (you can also buy a long one that you will have to cut into smaller ones). You will be surprised how cheap they are! Think of a design and roll up your sleeves. Provide a glue, and then glue the pipes with a brush. When you assemble the pipes the way you want, you have the perfect storage for your craft paints. You can hang it on a wall or just put it on a desk or table. Wanting more color in my life, I painted the pipes and now I have a nice place for my supplies that I can easily access.
The best part is that you don’t need to clean this “construction”. Instead, you can buy new pipes and put together a new design! Isn’t that cool?
If you have hundreds or maybe thousands of sequins, you will definitely find the following storage idea very useful. Since I wanted to keep my sequins in a portable place and take it with me everywhere, I bought myself a jewelry box. Best of all, its sections are removable and it was also very easy for me to put the colored labels. There is also a rich variety of jars or plastic containers, which can be placed on a table or in a drawer. A very useful idea is to store them by color. You don’t want to waste your free time searching for that exact color, do you?
Cleaning a craft room is just as important as cleaning any other room in your house. First make sure you tidy up the place, put everything in its place. Then start with one cleaning procedure at a time. Dust surfaces first, then vacuum carpets or mop bare floors, wipe out drawers, etc. Spend 20 minutes every day cleaning. In a few simple steps, the craft room will be immaculate.
