Organized Craft Cart {The Fantastic Five}

 
 
 
I have recently begun “crafting” again, and I realizes I needed an area
to keep my crafty fun organized.
 
Enter…
 
…my newly reorganized 
Craft Cart Corner!



I wish-dream-drool over all those cool craft rooms posted on Pinterest,but our home does not have a space for such loveliness at this stage in my life.

With homeschooling and babysitting a gaggle of kiddos, our extra rooms are at full capacity.
 
Also, we do not have a big budget for “extras,” like fancy containers and storage shelves,
(Oh to win the lottery!) so I re-purposed a variety of items to keep my supplies nice and neat.



So sit back, grab a cup of coffee, and check out the pictures of my Craft Cart Corner…




*********************************
For the bulk of my craft supplies, I store them on…
 
 
…an old microwave cart.
 
On the bottom shelf…
 
 
…I have used old shoe boxes to store…
 
 
…my glue gun (and extra glue sticks)…
 
 
… vinyl and fabric scraps…
 
 
…yarn scraps and felt scraps.

The middle shelf…
 
 
…contains a variety of re-purposed containers, including…
 
 
…a tea tin…
 
 
…an Oreo tin…
 
 
…and a card box.

Perhaps my favorite re-purposed containers are… 
 
…several old baby food containers.

They are the perfect size to store all kinds of small buttons and do-dads.
On the top shelf is a large tub…
 
 
…which contains a lot of my scrapbooking papers and such.
 



When I am not using the cart…
 
 
..I can easily roll the cart into the space between the kitchen counter and our baker’s cabinet. 

Behind the cart…
 
 
…I slipped my cutting board behind the cart.
 
 
In front of the cutting board,  I have placed three zipper file containers…
 

 
…which contain specialty scrapbook papers and stickers.
 
On top of the cart, I also store the yarn I use in different
crochet projects.

I sorted them by color into three different containers…
 

In front of the yarn containers is another tin, which I store scraps of paper.
 
 
On top of the paper scrap tin…
 
…is a bag containing finished scarflettes, brooches, and yarn/fabric flowers.
 
The pink shoe boxes in front of the finished project bag contain finished card projects.
 

The baker’s cabinet also contains some of my crafting supplies.
 
 
Underneath the cabinet  are my sewing boxes.
 

On the ledge…
 

…I used an old paper towel holder to hold my Washi tape…
 

…a little tin to hold different glues and hole punches…
 
 
…and a basket with different scissors, needles, punches, and such.
 
On the other side of the baker’s cabinet, beside the high chair,
I store my sewing machine.
Whew!
There you go…
 
…a little tour of my Craft Cart Corner.

I hope you were able to get an idea or two as you tackle your Spring cleaning 
“to do” list!
