My craft room is also my bedroom and I have a loft bed with my school desk and a chair under it, but I need more space as I sew, paint, bead, and just love to craft in general. My room is dedicated to my crafts yet it is so small I have a craft desk in the corner with a small book shelf. Any ideas?
Oh, I feel your pain! Organization for crafters is not easy even with a whole studio dedicated to crafting. Plus you are more than likely on a tight budget while going to school. My first thought was a chest which could hold supplies a bit hidden, but available easily. You really need to think about what kind of supplies you use. A set of simple shelving on a wall might help. I often “display” my supplies like room accents. I put my tools in mason jars and line them up on a shelve in an eye-pleasing manner. I also use stackable organizers, from shoe boxes to plastic containers. I just keep stacking up! I also get rid of bulky packaging when possible, it seems to make room for actual supplies.
Please share your organizational tips for small spaces! Let’s get clutter-free in 2011
