Put the fun in functional with a clever craft station that the whole family can enjoy

Between crafts, home improvement projects and year-round gift-giving, it's no wonder families are looking to carve out a dedicated multi-purpose space. Make the most out of every inch of your home while keeping your supplies organized and accessible. Transform an underused closet into a sure-to-be loved craft station in just one weekend.


Stylish and versatile fabric bins are great for storing past projects and keepsakes. Designate a bin for each member of your household, and label the front for easy identification of contents.


Purchase a hanging shoe organizer, and hook it over your door for an easy visual grouping of craft supplies. Dedicate each pocket to a different item.


Dedicate the back of the door to memo and display boards. Paint a chalkboard with magnetic primer—you’ll have the option of either writing or hanging your reminders. Then add a corkboard for exhibiting finished crafts.


Maximize vertical space and keep your supplies within reach by screwing a pegboard to the closet’s back wall. Stay organized by grouping similar items together in wire baskets. Easily remove the baskets when you need them and hook them back on when you’re done.


For a quick and crafty update, purchase or repurpose metal pails, and decorate them with eye-catching wallpaper. Use them to hold multiples of your most commonly-used supplies—you’ll be well-stocked and ready to go for family craft days and home improvement projects.


Include rolling storage carts for easy access to supplies. Park carts under the desk, and move them out of the way when extra legroom is required.

quick tip

Inject lively pops of color throughout your multi-purpose space. Add warmth by painting your walls a refreshing spring hue, and create playful contrast with vibrant furnishings and accessories.
