Unique Storage for your Sewing Room

With this subject I thought it would be fun to show you a few ideas on how to think outside the box.  Unique storage really is just using something that was intended for one thing and use it for something else.

When you see a ice cube tray– don’t think ice…think storage for little sewing bits.  What about suitcases, picnic baskets and vintage drawers and boxes.  The ideas are really unlimited– only limited by your own ideas.

I would even suggest walking around your home and finding a few new pieces of furniture that could use a move and new place to hang out.  Possibly it could even swap out for something that you have that isn’t working for you.

And- that bring me to another point. If it isn’t working for you and you complain every time you pull a drawer out because it doesn’t work- or the shelves aren’t deep enough, or it doesn’t fit the space it causes issues with the rest of the room.  No matter the complaint– take a look around and find a replacement.  That’s the cheapest route.  If you can’t find anything– then hit the thrift stores.  They usually have loads of furniture and you can customize it to what you need- color, style and whatever!  Time to have some fun!
