Craft room and storage

I'm always looking for new functional and pretty ways to store my stash of supplies. Here are a few I've gleaned from different sites - I have mentioned the source if I know it.

Here's a cute and easy ribbon storage idea from Amber at Givers Log using an assortment of candlesticks.

Check out this wonderful embellishment storage - I believe it is 6' tall by 4' wide!
Love this idea for storing lever punches using a curtain rod. Wish I had more wall space!

Jars of goodies stored in an old wooden soda crate (scrumdilydilly.blogspot.com).

Check out this beautiful old library card file. Susan at westcoastcrafty.wordpress.com stores her jewelry findings in this!

Another great ribbon storage solution using wire baskets hung on the wall. (Pretty too.)

A very functional way to store buttons and tiny embellishments using the inexpensive plastic "floss containers." I like how the boxes are labeled!

And one of my favorites for storing craft paint bottles (momto2GRITs at 2Ps) using two wire racks held together with ribbon and hung on the wall:

Hope this gives you some clever ideas for storage.

I have been on the lookout for 1 of those library card files for years! They were also used to store microfishe copies and for scout tickets, etc. in the oil & gas biz. I had a whole wall of them in my office.... what I would give for them now!

Susan, my friend in TN did a variation of the punch storage. She used a sturdy frame found on clearance @ Hobby Lobby, painted it black, attached a piece of painted wood securely (a color coordinated w/her craft room)(may have been particle board) to the back of the frame & then mounted sturdy black cafe rods to front of frame.... works & looks great!
