{Creatively Frugal Craft Space Organization}

Friday, April 24, 2009

Been Spring Cleaning...I don't have a Craft Room, but I take up my share of real estate for sewing/crafting in our game room. So in giving my space a little more organization, I've been searching for FREE ways to organize all my loot. Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

~The Peanut Butter Jars I mentioned Wednesday:


~Urns for brushes, baby food jars for buttons


~Cereal Boxes for magazines, clipped ideas, sewing patterns


Photos:Craftzine


~A Pocket Organizer for tools, spools, supplies

~Repurposed, repainted & stenciled Hat/Gift Boxes

~Tiered Wire Basket, Hanging Fruit Baskets

~New Life for Old Furniture

~An Old Ladder for fabric

Such good ideas here. Don't know why I haven't thought of the cereals boxes! I have mounds of magazines that need a good home in my studio space. I have lots of old wallpaper that will cover them nicely! Now, the painted hat boxes are calling my name too...Love, love, love, the artwork on the hat boxes!

I'm impressed by the ingenious ideas for an office! I loved the hat boxes. I've been saving my TJ's coffee containers, I think I'm going to paint them white! They need a black design, too.

I love all of it! I use PB jars for storing my daughter's little collections.

You mentioned that you wanted some rabbit resistant plants. How about Phlox or Yarrow? They both come in several colors. Also, Vincas are rabbit resistant.

Good luck.

I LOVE repurposing things! It's one of my favorite things ever! I wish nothing in my house was being used for what it was meant for. Is that weird???
