Oh, how we love a stor­age so­lu­tion! Es­pe­cially when it’s one of yours.

A reader shares clever stor­age so­lu­tions.

A lovely old tim­ber cup­board was res­cued, re­painted and given a new lease of life as the stor­age cen­tre for Sam’s many cre­ative pursuits.

The cup­board was found col­lect­ing dust un­der an el­derly cou­ple’s house and bought for $20. Sam sanded back the orig­i­nal cream colour to make way for a bright white.

An eclec­tic col­lec­tion of jars is used to store cot­ton reels, rib­bons, washi tape, sewing tape, fab­ric scis­sors and more, plus but­tons, but­tons and more but­tons.

Cute black­board tags help keep the shelves or­gan­ised. A large wire bas­ket holds a col­lec­tion of spots and stripes from Sam’s “over flow­ing bounty of fab­rics.”

Sam uses colour­ful boxes to con­tain a host of smaller crafty items like stamps, twine and card­stock, as well as a grow­ing col­lec­tion of paint chips she up­cy­cles.

The bot­tom shelf is where Sam houses her “never-end­ing col­lec­tion of in­te­ri­ors mag­a­zines, in­clud­ing every is­sue of homes+ that I can’t bear to part with.”

Sam’s part­ner Dale re­moved the wooden pan­els in the doors and re­placed them with wire mesh.
