Here’s week two in Vicki Welsh’s REAL Studio Tour.
This week, we’re all going to talk our favorite storage solutions. For me, it’s covered plastic boxes! Here in Redlands, it’s dusty, well dirty! I open the windows in my studio a LOT, it’s the hottest room in the house. Lots of dirt gets blown in, and I’ve discovered that it blows in lots of dirt. Most of the boxes I use are Sterilite, this size. They’re big enough to hold several yards of fabric, but not so big that fabric gets totally lost in the bottom. They are also inexpensive, so I can buy a bunch without spending a bunch! This way, when I find a way to stash a bunch of these, I can swap out one I need for one that’s holding a certain group of fabrics or a particular UFO that I’m not working on. I stack a bunch of these in the closet:
But the boxes I use the most often are stored in a special storage cart by hubby and I built to fit them!
This cart also hols an ironing board, in front of which I spend a lot of time.
I’ve discovered that for me, it was worth it to buy boxes that are the same size – they stack neatly on top of one another, and again, make it easy to swap one out for the other, so I can keep the things I use the most often out where they can be easily reached!
