Craft Supply Storage Dresser

If you enjoy doing crafts, then you know that supplies multiply!  I mean I have glues, paints, brushes, and paper all over the place.  It often looks like a bomb went off in my dining room when I am trying to get a project completed.  The worst part is I often stash things in different places, then I can't remember where I put them.  I have tried several solutions to organizing my supplies including making space in our storage room in the basement for my items.  The problem I found with that was I didn't enjoy doing crafts while sitting in my unfinished storage space; I mean, not too inspiring, so I would then have to drag everything upstairs which was a pain.  Can anyone relate?

One day I was sitting in my office and looking around when a light bulb went off: why couldn't I convert a dresser I had in the space to craft supply storage!  I proceeded to drag everything up from the basement (again!) and organize into the drawers in my dresser.

Here is the result.

You can see how I painted this dresser and gave it a new look with wrapping paper lined drawers here and here.

Let's talk about the storage ideas.  I turned my craft paints upside down and put them together by colors.  I also have a second drawer for stencils, painters tape, and other brushes.  In the long drawers, I used clear bins to organize scissors, tools, glues, my glue gun, pens, and other supplies.  I can see what I've got and can pull out a bin if I need to.

I'm excited to use this new storage system.  I feel like it's taking my crafting to a whole new level.

How do you organize your supplies?  I love hearing other peoples ideas!

    I love this idea! Just thought of it a few weeks ago! Looking through thrift stores now! Love how you stored everything! I especially love the color of your dresser. It looks distressed! Craft room will be a lighter teal. Dressers will be white!
