10 Upcycled, Recycled, and Repurposed Craft Room Storage Ideas

Finding organization methods that work is sometimes challenging but finding organization methods that work for a craft room can be even more challenging than usual. There are just so many different supplies and materials that come in all shapes and sizes!

I like my craft studio to be pretty but functional and I’m all about upcycling and repurposing here at Little Vintage Cottage so today I'm sharing 10 upcycled, recycled, and repurposed (plus pretty!) craft storage ideas.

Craft Room Storage Ideas


1) Repurpose an armoire or old computer desk by converting it into a "craft closet". Add shelves and drawers and be sure to take advantage of every available space by adding hanging storage inside the doors for small items.

2) Repurpose a crib bed spring into handy hanging storage. This is perfect for renters too because it can just lean against the wall so no holes in the walls! Elevate it by placing it on top of a low dresser to save on floor space.

3) Upcycle old baking pans into space saving, convenient storage.

4) Repurpose a hanging planter into yarn storage. Yarn can be bulky and hard to store. This is an easy way to keep out of the way and it looks pretty too!

5) Recycle plain-Jane jars to hold small supplies.

6) Repurpose a spice rack for paint storage. This one will hold 16 bottles of paint in a compact, space saving way and it spins for easy access!
