The best craft storage solutions to finally organize your craft room once and for all. Paper storage, pegboard organization, drawer storage and more!

Right now it is early January and that means everyone is usually itching to get clean and organized after the wash of holiday clutter. I recently completely revolutionized my entire craft loft and it turned out amazing!

One of the biggest keys to my success with craft organization is learning to select the right craft storage solutions so everything has a proper place. And I even took it to the next level with categorizing my craft stock, so I always know what I have for a project. Believe me, it is a HUGE money and time saver! I also took the time to use my label maker, and create some labels for you (download below), to make sure everything was marked properly and easy to find.

Craft storage means shaking out the clutter

This is the hard part for us crafters. We want to keep everything because we believe there will surely be a purpose for this item in the future. Funny part? I have had things in my craft room for 8+ years and still haven’t found a project for them. So let me give you a tip: Before you start organizing everything in your new shiny craft storage containers PLEASE clear out some clutter.

Ask yourself the following 2 questions:

  1. Do I currently or in the near future have any projects CLEARLY planned for this supply or item?
  2. How long have I been holding onto this item? Longer than a year?

If you’ve been holding onto something longer then a year, and don’t see a clear purpose, then out it goes!

If it’s something that is in good shape with lots of supply life left to it, then consider donating it. Alternatively, you can find a crafty friend or Facebook group member to swap supplies with!

And if you just can’t bring yourself to throw it out then move it to a deep storage pile. Get it out of your craft storage space and up into an attic or closet. I would encourage you to still take stock of what this item(s) is, so you can refer to it if you ever what to pull it out and use it!

I go much deeper into this concept in my 3 Day Craft Revolution Challenge so be sure to sign up!

Storage built ins and book shelves

I really desired to have a wall of builtins but that was a little out of my price range to accomplish right now. So I knew when I found these amazing storage bookshelves, that looked like a built-in, I needed to have them for my craft room storage! Not only could the shelves hold a lot, but I loved that there were cabinets at the bottom to hide some containers and other items I didn’t want to be constantly visible! {Shop here}

    A coffee table! Yes, really! Why do I use a coffee table in my craft space? Two reasons. First I can slide storage bins underneath and second it is the PERFECT height to shoot craft video or picture tutorials on at a 90-degree angle! {Shop here}

    Declutter Your Craft Desk

    Let’s be honest organization is one thing and trying to keep your desk tiny enough while creating a new project is another. Recently I discovered this tabletop wastebasket by Lots of Style that makes it so much easier to keep my workspace clutter-free when working with vinyl and paper projects.

    These little table-top trash cans are also very fun to decorate! Now when I have a pile of vinyl scraps I just through them right in this trashcan to keep them from hitting the floor. If you want one of these be sure to use my coupon code for a discount! Code: ABBI30
