Hello, My Friends!~~~
I keep the stash of vintage goodies that I use in Dime Store Chic creations in the basement hallway that leads to my studio which is tucked away in the corner of the basement. It's a real room and I do love my creative space so much. But you may (or may not) be interested to see where I store the bulk of the vintage materials I use in my creations. The photos aren't too glamorous but it may give you an idea of how you can use any available space in your home for storage--cheap storage.
First I start with simple wooden storage shelves we found at IKEA. Then I got some fruit/produce boxes from the local warehouse store. Some of them I decorated with a little paper on the end. I have so many little vintage crafty goodies that these boxes are the perfect place to store them AND to see them. The boxes weigh very little when empty and are learge and shallow enough to allow me to search though the goods within to find the right piece for the right project.
That's about it. Very simple. Cost effective too. I really love those produce/fruit boxes for storage!
Oh and here is a sneak peek at what I am working on...
