Hacks and ideas to solve your craft room storage woes.
If there’s one thing I know about DIY, is that you need storage — storage for supplies, tools, leftover bits and bobs, paused projects (you know, the macrame tapestry from 2018?) and for future projects.
Luckily for us, IKEA is synonymous with storage. And with a bit of hacking, you can make it to store all your craft supplies.
Let’s take a look at some craft rooms and see how they do it.
The crafting table
#1 LACK cutting table
There are many ways to build a craft table. This one from Brooke is one of the easiest I’ve seen, made from 12 LACK side tables. The space beneath the LACK table tops provided space for storage, which she organized with baskets and bins.
IKEA kitchen cabinets are great for craft rooms as well. I love how the IKEA Home Tour Squad transformed this back room into a craft space. The island, built from SEKTION cabinets, works as a cutting table. There are also kitchen cabinets towards the wall for a small pantry and hung up high for closed storage.
What’s more, if you don’t have lots of space you can use the IVAR fold up table module to create an all-in-one craft desk.
Hang them up
Another IKEA Home Tour Squad craft room makeover provided some great ideas there.
This one in particular (from the 2:00 mark) caught my eye. The DIGNITET curtain wire holds up the tubes of paint and turns them into a beautiful display. Below that the GRUNDTAL rail and caddies for brushes, pens, etc. (GRUNDTAL is discontinued. Replace it with the current KUNGSFORS system)
Obviously, the SKÅDIS is made with crafters in mind. Use the SKÅDIS hooks to hang up your range of brushes and tools and containers for smaller items.
