13.  Great shelves rock!  Can you have too many shelves??  I think not!  I could use a different section for each project I’m working on these days!  It seems like I never have enough time to complete something all at one time.  I know I’m not alone with that!

16.  Cubbies make great storage…I’ll take a wall of them!  You can mix and match yard sale finds and create your own unique cabinet like this one from Debee at Art as Life .  I love the drawer pulls!

I’ve also seen stacked shoe organizers used to create a bunch of cubbies in small areas.  Try a couple for your craft room or closet.

    My workshop is such a mess, I cannot believe people can have their stuff all organized and clean and aligned ;). I cannot create in a tidy room – I feel kinda stuck. That being said, I still think an organized craft room would be nice – there are so many great ideas in your post!

    Love, love, love the look, but….I would challenge anyone to try to get me this organized!! If you, as an artist, use several different mediums, there is just no way!! Especially those of use who are up-cycling!! Felted sweaters cannot hang/stack nice and neat! When I am workink it is all over everywhere!! I have found I must “organize as best I can about once a month to keep my head above “stuff” LOL.
    Andrey, don’t feel bad, you are not amone!!

    My sewing studio is very hard to keep organized when I am in the middle of several projects. There are some great ideas I can’t wait to try. I have a huge closet with shelves. I think I am going to invest is some smaller bins to keep supplies organized.

    LOVE the hanging ribbon! I always hate hiding my ribbon, especially because then I forget what I have on hand. Thank you for this and all of the other great tips. It will be very easy to organize my crafting supplies, now :)
