Cans for Storage

Clean tin cans are just the right size to store pencils, scissors, markers, and other small things. Don’t you love the look of them clustered together on a narrow shelf like this? You can leave the labels on if they’re interesting, strip them off like in the photo above, or cover the cans with fabric or paper of your own. It really depends on what look you’re going for with your craft room.

  1. Oh you are so lucky to be getting a craft room!!!! I would love one of those so I don’t have to spend more time digging stuff out and then putting it away again than I do actually crafting!!!
    Make sure you show us the end result!

  2. I am in the midst of a craft room redo – and turning the entire closet door into a chalkboard with the rest of my paint.Β  A photo frame with a piece of tin in it will be a magnetic board for notes, and a lazy susan from a yard sale find will hold jars with my supplies on a shelf next to my work table, so I can spin and choose without having to reach over other things.Β  A faded camp chair with a “slipcover” will be my hand sewing spot.

  3. Color-Coded Organizing

    Β These are awesome ideas. Peach crates are a great idea for extra storage. Add some paint and give it new life!
