Crafting Tip of the Week #155- Shoeless Shoe Storage

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I thought I would share a storage solution tip.

You know those shoe cubby storage units designed to hold your shoes?
Why not give it a try in your craft room?

I purchased one at Target on sale for under $15 USD and it has 15 cubbies.
I then purchased some really cute bins from the dollar spot at Target to place inside the cubbies and those hold my flowers.
Want to see?
Sorry for the poor quality of the photo but you get the idea.
I plan on painting those containers because they don't really match my decor and I wanted them to be a neutral color. Then I will hang really cute tags or make labels to place on them identifying the color of flower in each container.
The empty one is sitting on my craft table. I was able to separate my flowers by colors using this cubby system and it is working great for me. Whenever I want I simply grab the container I need, look through it and select my flower of choice. Then I can easily place the container back in the cubby.

You could certainly store other things as well. They are rather deep so you could fit 2 of these particular bins per cubby if you needed too. You don't necessarily need to place a storage container in the cubby hole. You can simply use as is to store your hand held tools, adhesives, punches, stamps, acrylic blocks, paints, etc...
You can definitely get a lot of products, embellishments, tools and other useful crafty items stored in one large surface area with definite separation.

I hope you found this tip helpful.
Have a wonderful week!
