CRAFT AND HOBBY SUPPLY ORGANIZATION AND STORAGE

Crafts and hobbies are great creative outlets. Painting, scrapbooking, knitting, sculpting, drawing, and sewing are popular ways to pass the time and create something unique for yourself or others. No matter what you hobby is, it is probably safe to say that it is hard to find the space that you need to keep your supplies organized. Having a dedicated space is great, but if you are in a small or crowded space, it can be very difficult to find room to keep it all together. This is why we've consulted the professional organizers and home decorators at Only Hangers. Use these ideas to create a perfect work and storage area for your craft and hobby supplies with little or no space.

Workspace

Almost every craft or hobby requires a work surface. Folding tables are great because you can put them away when you are done with them. You may be able to use an ironing board that folds neatly into a hanging cabinet. You can also build one yourself. Simply screw hinges into an appropriate sized table top or board and attach it to studs in the wall. Place a hook at the top for securing it in an upright position, and you've got yourself a folding workspace. Don't forget to attach a support leg or legs that swing out on hinges when you open it.

Hidden Craft Area

Repurpose an old dresser, desk, baker's rack, or other piece of furniture and turn it into your personal storage and work area. Paint it to match the décor of the room and people will never suspect all of the things you have stored away in there. You can also use cabinets above the washer and dryer. You may only need to keep stain remover, laundry detergent, bleach and fabric softener in there. The extra space could be perfect for storing your craft and hobby supplies in stackable bins.

Closets

Make space in your closet using space saving hangers for your clothes. Visit Only Hangers for different styles of hangers that can be used for coordinating outfits or getting things like bathing suits, ties, and scarves off of the shelves and out of your drawers. This will give you space to store art and craft supplies. You may have the space that you need already, it's just a matter of discovering it.
