Living in Manhattan, space is a quite limited (and that’s an understatement). I recently moved to my 430 square foot apartment and downsized considerably, so many of my craft supplies got tossed or donated. Everything had to go except for the essentials (like glitter!).
I was surprised to have a tiny nook of extra space in my Hemnes wardrobe, and it seemed quite luxurious to turn it into a fun storage area: a craft cubby.
STEP 1) Buy fun sheet of paper from a craft store or get a roll of cute wrapping paper. Cut it to fit the back panel and adhere (I mounting squares)
STEP 2) Set out the items that you have and group them in like piles (identify a couple items that can be hung and set aside). Find quirky decorative containers for each and place them on the shelf: vases, baskets, votive holders, etc.
STEP 3) Place sticky hooks on the walls where you want to hang scissors, glue gun, or other items. If they don’t lay flat, get “S hooks” at the hardware store for under $1 and that’ll get things to lay flat against the wall.
STEP 4) Slap flat items on the wall using Velcro. I have a decorative calculator I access often I velcroed to the wall. In college, my roommate and I often lost our remote controls and it really helped to velcro the thing to the wall next to the TV. Basically, velcro can be your best friend.
