Today's organization topic was from a question posted directly to the Studio Calico message board. asking fellow crafters how they store their mists in their spaces. Now that there are so many different varieties of spray mists, what is the best way to store them?
I love that there are so many different ways that other crafters are storing their mists. I love the creativity and often ingenious ideas that you smart peeps come up with. I am always so inspired after seeing these great organizational ideas. Here are a few I am hi-lighting this month
Spinning Storage Options:
I found THIS image on Pinterest showcasing how Kinsey Wilson's is using her awesome Harbor Freight 12" Revolving Four Tray Bin to store mists. I love that she is able to get all of her mists on the top of this storage piece, plus she has room for all other kinds of crafty supplies as well. I also adore that this Revolving Tray Bin is very economically priced, and can easily be altered with paint or washi tape to match your decor. It also looks great in the original black metal finish as Kinsey has done. You can check out your local Harbor Freight to see if they have one, or you can order it online directly HERE. Another great thing about this particular piece is that it takes up very little counter space and is only 12" round, but offers up four shelves of storage!
THIS storage idea was pinned from an image I found at Scrapbook.com by Created4you. This Caddy is perfect for storing paint, but the creator found that it also worked perfectly for storing mists. I could not find a link for where to purchase this particular item, but I still think it is a great example of using a pre-existing product that was made for one purpose, and using it for something else entirely. It also reminds me of spice racks, and I have seen many crafters effectively using spice racks to store creative supplies.
This is how Danielle is storing her fabulous mist collection now. The girl loves her some mist doesn't she? I love looking at her collection, pure eye candy. She recently moved into a new scrap space and her handy hubby hung these three crown molding shelves for her. She loves that she can easily get to them while she scraps at her desk below.
The next two images are from my studio. I found this storage shelf a few years ago at Michael's craft store. I purchased it with a 40% off coupon and a gift card and I believe it was right around $60 for the shelf. It has been a really great investment for me and I love that it is a very flexible storage piece. I am currently using this for mist storage, as well as embossing powder, and buttons. I think I will be moving sequins to the bottom shelf soon however and buttons to another location.
Unfortunately, after several attempts, I cannot find a link to this exact storage piece, but if you go to your local Michael's I still see very similar shelves every time I stop by. I also found this smaller desktop storage piece on their website HERE.
