10 DIY Storage Solutions

10 DIY Storage SolutionsIf there’s one thing my craft room could always use, it’s more storage. No matter how much I try to clean (which let’s be honest, it’s really not that often) it seems like my stuff is just everywhere. Not only is it everywhere, but it will also be nowhere at the same time… at least nowhere that I can find.

But it’s totally a fixable problem! The good news about making your own storage is that it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money or require a ton of skill to pull off. And I think these ten diy storage solution certainly prove that!

I ended up leaving a bit of the background as a boarder so that I wouldn’t have to spend too much time worrying about getting perfect lines. All about efficiency over here people!

Make over those boring storage boxes with this easy decoupage tutorial!Apply a thin layer of decoupage to your surface then place your wrapping paper. Smooth out any bumps with your fingers and seal with another thin layer of decoupage on top. I was nervous that the decoupage would leave some trace on the surface, but it dried absolutely clear.
