Instead of digging through a basket of thread to find the shade you need, keep each spool at your fingertips with this handy rack.

Peg It Up
The key to keeping your floors and counters clutter free is taking storage vertically. Pegboards are an ideal solution since they can be customized to your specific needs.

Line Up Papers

While having a lot of your crafting supplies visible is convenient, some things you’ll want in bins to create a seamless look on shelves.

Buy it now at The Container Store, $6.99-$9.99.
Finding the right craft table to fit your needs is essential. Look for a clean work surface, deep drawers to store your every project needs and handy extras, like how this sewing table has a sliding storage space to hide away the sewing machine. Casters are an added bonus to give you the flexibility of moving the table, especially if your craft room doubles as another space in your home. Buy it now at South Shore Furniture, $250.
Keep It All Within Reach
Sometimes the tiniest of things are the hardest to keep organized. Make sure to have a small drawer cabinet in your craft room for storing buttons, beads, finishing nails and anything else that can get lost in the jumble of crafting. Clear drawers allow you to see what’s inside with a glance. Buy it now at The Container Store, $27.99.
Label, Label, Label
Any great organizer knows the power behind labeling. Find exactly what you need with a glance over your labels and save yourself the stress of forgetting where you put the red-and-white polka dot grosgrain ribbon. Buy it now at The Container Store, $2.49.
