I have started to round up some creative storage containers that can be used to reorganize my sewing area. My space is neither messy nor disorganized, but it's not very appealing. I'm tired of supplies being stashed in humdrum cardboard boxes and boring plastic bins in the closet. It's time to make this a well-ordered, imaginative and cheery space.
I found a couple of fun pieces at a flea market last weekend and a few others were right here in my own house.
This little doll sized hutch only stands 17 inches high.
It has 2 nice sized drawers and shelves that could display small things.
Maybe I should paint it. What do you think?
I've had this Marjolein Bastin hat box for several years.
Time to put it to better use in the sewing room?
My daughter used this stair-step shelf while she was in college.
Now it might help my organization project go vertical.
Fabric pens would look nice in a bluebird planter.
This wooden filing box was once used for recipes
Hmmmmm... rickrack and trims would fit nicely.
I found a little powder tin with a tight fitting lid.
So many possible uses for it.
This is just the beginning. My eyes are peeled for interesting flowerpots, boxes, baskets, baking pans, and other items that can be repurposed. What are your favorite storage and organization solutions? I'm certain to find oodles of clever ideas and artistic inspiration when I browse "Where Bloggers Create 2011".
