Craft Storage

My crafts have gotten a bit out of control so it was time to organize them.  Using large baskets like the one below worked for awhile but over time, everything would pile on top of each other.

After searching Pinterest, I decided on a shelving unit from the children’s section at Ikea.

I used two Trofast frame units and twelve Trofast storage boxes.

The storage boxes come in different heights: 4″, 9″, and 14.25″.  I chose the 4″ boxes  because it prevents me from overfilling them.  By having more boxes, it also allows you to have more specific categories.  Here’s what I have in the boxes so far.

I like how all the crafts are organized in a compact space.  Now I can find things so much easier. =)
