Craft room organization

As I organize my craft room, I wanted to come up with ways to store my supplies so they would be neat, clean and easy to get to.

Remember my last post about the cute labels I made for these plastic storage totes?

I want to show you the rest of the organization ideas I came up with in the room. I filed all my patterns and instructions for projects I've done in these file folders.

When we moved into our house, each room came with a set of Container Store wire drawers in every closet. Score! So instead of having all my fabric in plastic bags and huge boxes, I separated them by color and put them in the drawers.

These are quickly getting filled up!

I love how this looks and everything is so much more accessible.

If you'd like to see some of the other craft room projects I've done, go here for my DIY curtains, here for my sewing desk chair makeover, here for the pretty dresser makeover, and here for the coffee cup flower pot tutorial.

Linking up at these fun parties!


  1. Oh, how I dream of having my own craft room! I love the wire baskets...great tips, thanks for sharing!

  2. Great organization tips!

  3. These are some great tips, Lisa! I love those wire drawers for fabric. You're right, that was a SCORE! I like labeling tubs too. We have a closet in our bathroom that I had such a hard time keeping organized. I labeled tubs like you did in your craft room and left the lids off. I have tubs labeled "Bath" "Hair" "Face"... It's worked out great and keeps me from buying things we already have. I really need to file my patterns like you did. That's a great idea! Thanks for the inspiration :)

  4. This is great! I am pinning this later today...I need some good ideas, because our office is being turned into a craft room this winter. Yay!
