DIY Craft Cabinets

DIY Cabinet

When it comes to storing supplies, cabinet design is important. Generally, small but numerous compartments are the best way to separate and store art materials.

Make a craft storage cabinet out of upcycled materials for an one-of-a-kind piece of furniture. Paint the cabinet a vibrant color to add personality and style.

Multiple Compartments

When it comes to crafting, many supplies come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Larger items like paints, markers and pens require multiple containers to keep them organized. Smaller items such as paper clips, scissors and nails may be stored in a cutlery tray or storage container.

The best craft cabinet designs are ones that include a lot of small and medium-sized compartments. This makes it easier to find what you need when working on a project and prevents them from getting lost in the bottom of a drawer. Using storage on the inside of cabinet doors is another great way to take advantage of empty space. It’s also ideal for keeping items that should be hidden from view, such as a set of gift bags or cleaning products.

Another great way to customize your DIY craft storage cabinet is by painting it. You can use a vibrant colour or a fun pattern to make it truly your own. You can also add other hardware such as handles or knobs to the cabinets to match your decor.

For a super affordable craft storage solution, you can transform an old cabinet into a functional craft room. This IKEA hack is very simple to do and uses basic materials you likely already have around the house. The result is a craft cabinet that looks like it’s part of the rest of your room.

Towering Shelves

There’s no reason craft storage can’t be both practical and beautiful. If you’re in the market for something stylish and functional, look for cabinets that feature a tower-like design with shelves on multiple sides that can be stacked in tiers. They’re great for storing small items such as pins and needles or rolls of measuring tape. This style of shelf can also be mounted to a wall to save space on your desk or counter.

Another popular storage option is drawers. The advantage of this style is that you can create separate dividers to store different types of supplies and make them more accessible when you need them. The downside is that drawers can be more difficult to keep organized since it’s easy for items to get lost in the bottom of the pile or slip through the openings. To combat this, you can add dividers or purchase pre-made drawer organizers to increase organization.

If you’re looking for something a bit more luxurious, try this wooden cabinet by Sauder. It’s a gorgeous addition to any room and has plenty of storage space to suit your needs. It’s on wheels so it’s easy to maneuver and even has a tabletop you can use as a work surface.

If the price tag on these luxury crafts storage solutions is too steep, consider buying a used dresser or china cabinet that you can convert into your own DIY craft cabinet. A dresser is a particularly good option for this because the top can fold out to act as a workspace. This is especially useful for people with limited floor space because it allows you to keep your craft supplies close without sacrificing too much space.

Hexagon Shelves

Hexagon shelves are a fun twist on floating shelf storage. They’re easy to build and look fantastic in a living room or home office. Plus, they can also be used as a decorative element to make any vignette pop.

If you’re looking for a creative way to organize your craft supplies, this DIY project is for you. With the help of a little paint and wood glue, you can turn an old cabinet into a gorgeous and functional craft storage solution. This project is especially great for those who have limited space to work.

The key to making these hexagon shelves is ensuring that all of the pieces are cut at a consistent length and angle. The best way to do this is by using a miter saw with a stop block. This will ensure that your cuts are straight and prevents kickback, which can be disastrous if you’re working with wood.

Once you’ve cut all of the pieces, you can assemble them together to create your DIY hexagon shelves. Before gluing them together, spread a thin layer of wood glue on the edges of each piece. Then, use a long strip of tape to secure the pieces together and prevent them from falling apart. Leave the taped-up shelves to dry for 24 hours.

These DIY painted hexagon shelves are an ideal storage solution for yarn balls, as well as any other colorful items you may have in your home. Not only do they keep everything organized and easy to find, but they’re also a nice accent to any bare wall. Plus, you can always add more to the shelf if you need more space for your supplies.


Most people love IKEA furniture because it’s affordable and practical but that doesn’t mean you have to be a professional designer to get the look you want for your space. Using clever hacks, you can take a basic IKEA shelf and turn it into something truly beautiful. You can elevate a simple cabinet with metallic tape like @crack_the_shutters did on her IKEA BESTA cabinet, or add rattan doors for a trendy style (and premium look). The possibilities are endless!

IKEA’s popular KALLAX shelves are a favourite for DIY craft cabinets because they can be stacked and customized with doors, drawers and storage baskets. They can also be trimmed with moulding to create a completely custom built-in piece for your home office, like this one from Studio 36.

A apothecary cabinet is an essential for any craft room but they’re often quite expensive to buy new. Luckily, IKEA CANADIAN-style sideboards are super affordable to buy and easy to convert into your own DIY apothecary cabinet. You can use an IKEA Expedit for this project as it has all the right dimensions, or you could build your own from scratch with an IKEA Malm dresser and some hardwood plywood.

Everyone dreams of having a beautiful built-in cabinet in their home office but that kind of furniture can be incredibly pricey to purchase and install. EHD alum Stephanie from Studio 36 solves this problem with a creative IKEA hack on the HEMNES bookshelf that looks custom but doesn’t cost a fortune.

You can add a beautiful shiplap look to any piece of furniture with some simple wood strips and paint. This IKEA Rast hack by My Rehab Life is the perfect example and will make any craft supplies look stylish and neat. You can even apply the wood strip technique to an IKEA Ivar cabinet for a fun and unique look that would look great in a kids’ room.

Fold Out Cabinet

If you’re looking for a storage solution that offers more space than a traditional craft table, but still doesn’t eat up all the floor space in your home, a fold out cabinet is a great choice. It allows you to store all of your supplies while also providing a place to work on projects. This type of storage can be wall-mounted or put on a stand depending on your preference. You can also choose from a variety of sizes to find the one that fits your needs best.

When crafting a fold out cabinet, it’s important to start by measuring and cutting all of the wood. This ensures that everything is the correct size and will fit together properly. It’s also a good idea to use a power saw for this step to make sure the cuts are clean and precise. Once all of the pieces are cut, they should be sanded to smooth out any rough edges.

Finally, it’s important to test the cabinet to make sure that it opens and closes smoothly and that all of the shelves are even. This will prevent any potential problems with the storage cabinet and ensure that it can provide the space-saving storage solution you need.

If you’re in the market for a stylish craft storage cabinet, this modern option from John Lewis is a perfect choice.
