Inexpensive Craft Room Storage

Inexpensive Craft Room Storage Containers

I'm so excited to be moving into a new craft room that already has built-in shelving. Remember the picture I shared a while back? Here's a refresher:


It's kind of ugly right now, but after some paint and trim, I'm going to fill it up with all the things I love and it will be awesome

Since I've got the craft room on the brain, I've been on the prowl for cute, inexpensive storage options. I found these clear storage boxes at ConsumerCrafts (afflink).
They are perfect for holding paper, cards and half-finished projects. And they come in 8 1/2x11, 12x12 and 5x7 sizes. So much better than the cardboard boxes my supplies used to be shoved in.
I really like that they are see-through so I know exactly what supplies I have.
But they are a little plain as-is.
Adorable die-cut chalkboard label stickers to the rescue! Can it get any easier?


Now I can label each bin and keep everything dust-free, organized, and easy to see!


Just a quick tip... don't forget to season your chalkboard labels before writing on them for the first time. It's easy: just rub chalk over the entire surface, then wipe clean and your labels will be seasoned and ready to write on.

Thank you, ConsumerCrafts for sponsoring this post!
