Are you trying to stay cool and look for something to do inside over this hot weekend? Why not organize your craft supplies? Maybe you can hit a few thrift shops or garage sales. Did you see the July 4th post by Julie? If you didn't, make sure you scroll back to her post, she just shared some wonderful storage ideas for her craft supplies. I loved her idea, so here I am with a similar post. I love thrift stores, vintage shops, and garage sales for finding my crafty containers.
|This is one of my favorite storage ideas. It's an old 7-Up crate. I keep things in it that I|
am using that week for classes. It is really handy to use. What's really
nice is that most of my "most" needed supplies actually fit into those compartments.
|I love mix matched glass jars mixed with my old jars and vintage finds.|
Inside these containers I am storing my old clothes pins, thread spools, trims, and scrabble pieces.
|Storage for my paint brushes, mini spools, and wood letters.|
|Old Mason jars and gum ball machines for my buttons. Behind the jars|
you might notice a long basement window, it was perfect after I cleaned it up, painted it black
and added a rope to hang my tags or mini bingo cards from.
|Here is an old wire trio of baskets perfect for my twin, rope, and burlap.|
|I love the old shaped shadow boxes. This one I used for some of my bakers twine|
& some of my mini vintage finds.
I hope you enjoyed a peak at some of my favorite storage ideas. I am constantly adding new things to my craft rooms.. or should I say, I am constantly adding "old" things to my craft rooms. What old things do you have in your craft room? I hope I inspired you just a little bit to add some more old vintage finds to your craft rooms.
By the way, I forgot to introduce myself and this is my first post for Practical Scrappers.
I am one of their many new Designers and I am happy to be here~
