Crafty Storage Solutions

By Debbie Williams

Creating storage for craft and hobby items can be quite challenging - what to do with all those parts and pieces? Here are some of my favorite tips for conquering craft clutter, and finding a storage solution you can live with.

GENERAL HOBBY STORAGE: Stash It! Under bed storage boxes with lids (I recommend plastic since they last longer than cardboard), tackle boxes and fishing lure boxes for storing small items. Purge! Get rid of some of the things you've tucked away but are out of style (or your taste has changed). Donate to church craft groups or senior citizens groups.

BONUS ROOM: Use business furniture or a double clothes closet in a bedroom to create a niche for crafting or sewing. The doors can be closed to hide your work in progress. A folding screen can easily disguise a work area.

WORKTABLE: A card table or metal banquet table stores under the bed when not in use. This is great if your hobby room doubles as a bedroom. My husband has even used a large piece of plywood over the spare bedroom mattress as a workspace. This can easily be stored when guests visit.
