into the closet

This is the closet in my spare bedroom turned crafty space. Just opening the doors makes me happy.

    Wow! Way to be organized, lady! You've inspired me to go to Target and get some more bins :)
  • Elena @ Hot Pink Stitches 5y

    So now I have to know...what are all the different bin categories you have? I usually classify by craft type, since I have dabbled in so many.

    OK Pink Stargazer- I have added a note on top of each box telling you what is inside. I hope that helps you out a little. I too have a LOT of different supplies. I like this system because it is very easy to change and rotate and expand. I labeled each box with a Brother labeler and they are super easy to peel off and relabel. Good luck with your bins!

    Wow! You rock!!! Off to Target I go! :)

    wait. did you do this during a nap time? because seriously - you need to teach me some time management skills if you did. I suck at managing my nap times. I just want to browse the internet. No work for the lazy girl!

    and now for my next message (I CAN'T STOP!) ... can you give me details about the storage boxes you're using? Rubbermaid? How many and what sizes? I'm curious because it's the PERFECT fit in that closet and I can't seem to get my crap organized no matter HOW HARD I try ... it's all over the basement living room and spilling in to the utility room and, yeah, I keep buying more. I can't figure out a good organizing method, but this seems not only doable, but also like the upkeep wouldn't be too bad. Do you have the front of the boxes labeled? Is this all of your stuff or do you have more stuff somewhere else also? Do you get in this closet every day, or is this more the type of stuff that you use less frequently and have the more frequently used stuff elsewhere?

    I'm sorry that I have so many questions. I'm almost as in love with this as I am your washi tape organizer! ALMOST.

    Ok, you seriously crack me up! Here's a few answers
    1- I did this closet before I had my baby. But the rest of this room was done after she was mobile. More pictures of that are coming, promise.
    2-Storage Boxes- All from Walmart. It took several trips to fit them all in my little neon. The bottom big one's are actually stacking drawers. But the whole drawer pulls out easily so you can dig through them easily, or so you can move them around without moving the whole closet. I do this often. The next shelf up is all 12x12 paper organizers. They have these at Joann's too. Next shelf up- far right is a tackle box full of my beading stuff. And the rest of those little boxes are clear stacking with hinged lids. They come in three sixes, and all three sizes stack on top of each other neatly. These are a combo of like 6.5x6.5 and 6.5x13 inch boxes. The top shelf is all Rubbermaid lidded boxes. This is just a standard size closet in my standard size spare bedroom. After we hung the shelves (totally adjustable, Rubbermaid Brand from Home Depot) I measured everything. Then I took my list of measurements and a measuring tape and went shopping. And I bought what would fit.
    3- (Am I only on 3? haha :o) The front of every box is labeled with a P-touch labeler. They peel off easily so it's easy to change them.
    4- This is almost all my stuff. I have a few things that stay on my little desk and a bookcase with fabric and books and canvas's and stuff.
    5- These closet doors are almost always open. I get in here every single day. My desk is on the wall directly opposite this closet, so when I need something it's easy to turn around and find it. But when I did this closet originally this bedroom was being used as a bedroom. So I picked the system I did so that I could easily carry the few boxes I wanted to use into the dining room and do my crafty business on the table.
    6- Tape organizer plans coming this month. I swears!
