I have finally completed my craft area transformation.  I have a spot in the laundry room for my craft supplies.  I was using a large cabinet to store everything but couldn’t keep it organized.  Things were piled on top of each other and it was hard to find what I needed.  I decided to ditch the cabinet and organize everything on the wall.  I love how it makes the room feel so much bigger.

I used the Bygel Rail and containers from Ikea to organize my scissors, paint brushes, and spray cans.

I used larger containers on the rail for my glue gun and punches.

I have tried several different ways to organize ribbon.  I tried the dowel through the basket, put them in containers…. nothing seemed to keep my ribbon from ending up in a tangled mess.  Until…. I found this awesome idea for organizing ribbon on Pinterest (here).  I used a plastic rain gutter.  The ribbon fits perfectly.  It’s easy to see what I have and the ribbon stays put on the roll.

For my paints, I used a spice rack from Ikea.

My wrapping paper fits nicely on the shelf brackets.

And last but not least, I used trash containers from Ikea as hanging baskets for the bows and tissue paper. I added a row of hooks for all of the gift bags.  Wrapping presents is much more enjoyable when you can find the right supplies!
