There are some very good ideas in this collection - some are just too cutesy or craftsy, but others like the bathroom storage and the inspiration board appeal and the treasure box sets the mind to working


Some of these are good ideas. I like the soap container thing as a gift idea. However, I personally, don't want CRAFT IDEAS to store craft suppiles. I don't need more little boxes or plastic bottles cluttering my work space. I want actiual storage solutions. Something clean and clutter-free, especially for a small space. Does anyone have ideas? Can someone direct me to a good site?

FaveCraft is the best of the best for any and all of any craft idea you could think of and most of them are quite easy. Another thing is you may see a craft and put your own ideas into it.

After using the drawers from a dresser with a little help the dresser could be used for a bookcase or additional shelf space.

I purchased decorative boxes (or plain) at the dollar store and used colorful wallpaper that matched the room decor (in this instance the bathroom). I roughed up the surface of the boxes, and the cheap plastic garbage can, then paste the paper on the sides or top. Now I have a complete set for one room that matches. And if I change my decor, I simple peel off the paper and start fresh with a new design.
