3 Ways to Organize + Style Your Craft Room for Spring
With so many DIY projects on your to-do list, it’s only natural to feel the need to get your craft gear organized. It doesn’t matter whether you’re tackling your first spring sewing project, taking a Brit + Co class, or painting the weekend away — you deserve a space full of bright colors, cool organization, and fab decor to do your making. So pull all your supplies from the closet, treat yourself to some new furniture, and get busy. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions shows you how to beautify your craft room with eye-catching baskets and colorful storage that make keeping track of your supplies a whole lot easier. Scroll on to see how we’d style the craft room for the boho-chic lover, the minimalist, and the preppy #craftqueen.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC CRAFT ROOM
Crafting is a slippery slope of creative messes. You start with one small project, and the next thing you know, washi tape and glitter have taken over your house. To keep your boho-fab space organized, corral the clutter with cubby shelves and labeled boxes. Bring in customizable pegboards for much-needed wall storage, and incorporate a mix of jars, trays, and wire baskets to get everything off your table but still within reach.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMALIST CRAFT ROOM
Wall shelves, acrylic cubes, and the ever-helpful rolling cart will give your space the feel of a professional (and über-organized) craft studio. It’s the perfect sleek aesthetic if your hobbies include fashion illustration or jewelry making. Plus all the clear storage and the black and white furniture make those crafting materials so much easier to find.

HOW TO DECORATE A PREPPY CRAFT ROOM
Baskets and bins are the easiest way to hide clutter, but why hide the baskets themselves? Go all out and make wire baskets the focal point of your craft room with a large open storage unit. You’ll be able to see exactly what’s in each in a second! Place the polka dot and pink essentials in sight with a wall-mounted organizer or in a tray on your desk. As for the rest, tuck it away in metallic bins and pencil holders to keep your space as clean as possible.
