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!
