An Organized Workroom Part 2

  workroom studio organization, craft, the altered past blog

Welcome back!  I'm so glad you joined me for part two of my Organized Workroom post.  If you missed part 1, you can check it out here:  An Organized Workroom Post 1

Today, I'm showing you more of the storage methods I use in my workroom.  Since I do altered art projects along with my DIY home projects, it requires hoarding keeping lots of various doodads, tchotchkes, treasures.  My family would probably disagree but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Seriously, it's not really hoarding if it's organized, right???  Nevermind, don't answer that.

I use a chalkboard near the door to write down my projects and materials needed.
This vintage match holder is perfect to hold extra chalk.

This old stereo cabinet was gutted and now used to store my supplies.
The old pull-out turntable drawer works perfectly for holding lots of paint bottles.
The vintage apothecary jars hold everything from junk metal pieces to rubber stamps.
Jars and jars of treasures...buttons, knobs, die, keys, dominoes, clothespin, tags, and more!

Wine box, wooden bowl, jar, and other dishes help keep things contained
An old miner's basket hung from the ceiling with pulleys holds spools of ribbons.  Out of the way but still within reach!

An old frame with chicken wire, broken teapot and sugar bowl are great for holding tools
Are you ready for my workroom's secret??!  Check it out!

The faux columns on each side of the mantel...they have secrets. ;)
They are actually built-in storage cabinets!
Whew!  That was quite a tour.  Thank you for sticking around to the end.  I hope you find some inspiration and ideas for your own workroom!

God bless!
Angie

  1. Love all the different containers you've used...you can see what's in each jar instead of having to pull it out and open to see what's in it (my issue-I need to make labels). Love the hidden storage! Great idea! Thanks for the inspiration!
