Furniture for Sewing Storage

There are a lot of sewists out there who aren’t able to have their own creative spot in the home or a separate room in the house….one that allows you to shut the door and hide your mess, I mean creativity.
Sometimes our spaces overwhelm the designated spot in the home and you’ll need to find other places to hide your sewing supplies- right in plain site.  Hide your supplies and sewing spot in plain site! Furniture for sewing storage can come in different shapes and sizes. Time to think differently.

Using large tubs for storing the items you don’t use as often is the best bet here as well.  Get that batting, christmas fabric you use only once a year, extra large backing fabric and those bits that you don’t need to see but only when you need it out of the main space.  Put those in the garage or in a basement storage room.  Make sure you label them well so they don’t get lost!

Having only the items that you really need on hand is the best way to keep things under control.  You will be able to use pieces of furniture to hide what you need.

Inspiration on how you can hide your sewing supplies in plain site~

no credit found- but this is a closet in a bedroom.

Drop Down Work Table- Love how the leg is the trim of the box when it’s on the wall closed.


Hutch- these are perfect for hiding supplies.  Especially if they have doors on the front that close and are wood and not glass.


Hope Chests- these aren’t as popular as they used to be (I have one!) but this is such a great idea! They are huge and lined with cedar so your fabric won’t get attacked by bugs.


Other than the sewing machine on top, you can’t tell what’s inside and it is on wheels so you can move it anywhere that works for the moment.

    I have that Sauder craft table, the white one. It is even white, lol. I absolutely love it. It is the best buy for the money out there and I have a second one, oak, in my craft/train room. The right side holds all my thread and the pockets on the left hinged door holds cutters, scissors, all my tools.

    Since I am in the process of turning my office-dining room into a multi-purpose room by adding sewing and craft capabilities to it and since I use a credenza for a desk, I purchased another credenza to use as my sewing machine table. It has much more sewing space than the cabinet I was using as well as having enclosed shelves on one end and two drawers on the other end. I also replaced my round dining table and four chairs with a 5′ rectangular table and was lucky enough to find four chairs with casters, two of which I use in the dining room (the other two are in use on the patio) along with two non-rolling dining chairs. I purchased a set of four bed risers ($4.99 USD at Walmart)to elevate my table by 5″ when I need to cut out something thus saving my back! My remaining fabric collection (a lot was donated) and a chest of drawers of notions have to remain in my storage building because I also have three bookcases and a china cabinet plus three doors in this room. It’s not that big; it’s that full — but it will work and I’ll enjoy using it as soon as I get it organized.
