Craft supply storage and organization is always a struggle for me in my craft room. I’ve been struggling with good storage for all my acrylic paints for several months. I don’t have a huge room to work in, so I try to take advantage of every bit of space available. I finally found a system that works perfectly for me!
I have, to put it mildly, a lot of acrylic paint since I do some freelance work for DecoArt. I used to keep paints in a couple plastic shoebox containers in a cubby-type shelf, but I outgrew that system. And the “giant box on the floor” system was less than ideal also.
I finally was able to carve out a vertical wall space when i discovered these spice racks from Ikea. Once I rotated and moved the file cabinet to the spot in the photo, the spice racks fit perfectly in that wall space next to my desk.
I can fit 16 bottles across each shelf, and each shelf can hold 2 rows (32 bottles/shelf). Of course, my perfectionist tendencies require all the bottles to be arranged by type, then by color. There is also extra space left over for my finishes, and my paint pyramids are handy there too.
Hope you enjoyed this peek into my craft cave, and that my solution helps with a tricky storage issue in your space! Do you have a storage solution you are thrilled with too?
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time…
