SEWING ROOM STORAGE OPTIONS...

...are you like me, always looking for new storage options in the sewing room?  My dream sewing space would be at least double the size that I have now - WOULDN'T THAT BE NICE!  But even then, I'd just fill it up to the brim and still need to figure out storage options to hid some of this stuff.  Like most people who sew, I am highly bless to have all of my sewing stuff - I just LOVE it all, but my space does tend to get a little disorderly and crowded.  I noticed these treasure chests while shopping at one of my cleaning supply stores - Family Dollar.


I actually have them in three sizes, the smallest one (not pictured) is half the size of the one pictured in the front. 
I have two of the larger chests.  I use one for dark lining fabric, and the other for light colored linings.  One mid sized chest holds my interfacings and the other is used for my collection of shoulder pads.


The two large chests are housed on my book shelves until there's a need for the stuff in them.  Of course the dream sewing space would have double this amount of shelving.  I hope to one day have matching magazine storage containers - or maybe one day cover them in matching fabric or maybe even burlap (great idea that I haven't been able to get around to as of yet). And SINCE I'M ALREADY DEEP INTO THIS DAY DREAM; a walk-in closet filled with rows and rows of shelves for my fabric stash, oodles of drawers for patterns, and of course great lighting.   A GIRL CAN DREAM - RIGHT???

 What type(s) of great storage options have you incorporated into your sewing space???

  2. My goodness, Faye! These chests are just beautiful as well as perfect for storage. I am ashamed to say that my sewing room still represents a chaotic mess but you have given me an idea. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Brenda the chests were priced so nicely that I couldn't pass them up. Plus I've used them twice already for props at school, so I guess they are multi purpose items.

  3. Those chests make a lovely addition to your room. I use 14.99 organizers from Wally world and my back room has 3 of the deep7 foot storage shelves for fabric and books, nothing pretty like your chests. I am blessed to have nice cabinets in my studio section.

  4. Having enough cabinets in your studio is a big plus I can imagine Bunny. And those 7 foot storage shelves sound like the ideal storage options.
