Using rustic antique pieces to make craft organization a part of your decor

Happy New Year everyone! This time of year I always get the urge to go through my things, organize and purge. How about you? I’ve recently been working on how to best utilize our space in our second bedroom – that functions as our guest room, garage, office, and my craft room. Which has been quite challenging! The space gets most often used by me and my etsy projects, so I tried to make my supplies as accessible as possible, without making it look like the crafts are taking over. I decided to make the way I stored things a part of the decor. Here is what I came up with!

Using clothespins and wooden spools to wrap my ribbon and fabric scraps and placing them in large mason jars.

Using pretty baskets to store fabric and scraps.  And check out my vintage sugar and coffee tins that I found at a garage sale! Those hold all my adhesives and office supplies! You’d never know! 🙂

Turning coke crates right side up makes for a great wall piece and creates slots to organize pretty pieces like my bakers twine, washi tape and tag collection.  Use short mason jars to fit in the slots too!

And I found this lovely card organizer at the long beach antique market and decided I would just put my card collection on display!

And I love this piece we received as a wedding gift from pottery barn. It’s been a great way to organize crafts and it looks great hanging on the wall! Again, using mason jars in a slotted piece gives each item its place!

I know this space of ours will constantly change, but for now it’s working pretty well! Happy organizing!!
