1 Crate Brush Organizer
These crates are available in school supply or craft stores. The home department of your nearest mall likely also carries them. Get some, give one side the chalkboard treatment, and then use said crates for organizing your craft supplies. You can also give your crates different paint colors according to the supplies that you plan to store. For example: red for paint brushes, blue for sewing notions, etc.
How cute! If I had enough air dry clay, I'd be making something similar to this, for sure. For those who want to give this DIY craft room project a try, you will also need a mold, paper and scissors, paint, and sanding block. Your mold can be a mug or any container with a shape or size you want to follow. For the button lid, you can go the extra mile and poke holes. Once it dries, thread embroidery floss like an actual button.

I've always loved craft room DIY projects involving embroidery hoops. If you add pretty fabric to the equation, you got yourself an irresistibly cute storage idea. The great thing about this is that you can sew pockets according to the items that you plan to store. You can sew wide ones for packets of sewing needles or narrow ones for seam rippers, thread snippers, and other long tools.

This is a great alternative to the crate idea we've featured here. For this mini basket DIY to work, you will need to find thick wool felt. Leather should work, too. The pattern is a simple “plus sign” shape with the sides sewn together. Add buttons as embellishment.
