Storage.....and craft room

Hello - I'm in a group and people were asking for storage ideas. So the files were to big to post into email, so figurd this would be the easier way plus you all may get an idea or two too!

I have posted pictures of my scrapbook room in the past you can see them here:  My Craft Room


Here are some additional photos of storage and ideas for storage.




So the flower compartments look a litte crappy...but that is because I was lazy and in a hurry. I should have done them the way I did my Copic storage, which is below. But, it works and they are separated! Foam board cost a couple bucks. 3 bucks tops. I think it's much cheaper than that though!



I bought these long towel racks from Ikea. They work great, however I didn't buy enough. I need like 2 or 3 more ;-))  Cost- about 2 bucks each!!!

My copic storage. I love it. it sits right in front of my work station and I just have to grab what I need. I like having the numbers in view. Nice thing is If I go anywhere, its a basket I just take it with me...no need to take them out and put them into anything else.


These are cut with an x-acto knife then put together. I have a basket using these for all my re-inkers and for my copics. I should have done my flowers like this, but it takes more work, more measureing, etc....but it looks SO much better. And, its quite sturdy. The foam board doesn't bow or anything with the weight of the re-inkers or markers. Cheap, inexpensive way for storage compartments.

Tracy, cool! You are getting so organized. I need to do that to my craft room too. I like your idea for the punches, as I have punches coming out of my ears. Problem is I don't actually have any free wall space...LOL. Have to think of something else...sigh.

Thanks for sharing the storage containers. I am slowly trying to get my room organized. I especially like the towel racks for the punches, right now mine are all in a box, then is always on the bottom of others whenever I need to use one. Take care.
