Containers from My Studio
Here are a few tips that I especially like:
- Create Stations - "If you’re lucky enough to have a bit of a square studio, with 3-4 walls, make each side of the room (and the center!) into a station. One wall could be focused on sewing materials, while the other wall features an easel and wall shelves with paint supplies and brushes."
- Use Containers - "Corral paint brushes, pens, and other tall tools into pretty jars and baskets. Organize your button collection into old spice jars, and keep them lined up in a drawer. The more you can organize like items together, the more you’ll be able to find." Note: I use Hello Kitty and Heart-Decorated Pails to store my brushes and tools. I like the shot of color and fun that the decorative pails add to my studio. I purchased the containers for a $1. each at Target.
- Go Vertical - "Have a lot of empty walls in your studio? It’s time to try organizing vertically! Whether you install floor to ceiling shelving units, or you just want a few boxes nailed to the wall, take advantage of having your supplies at eye level, but off your floor and desk spaces."
