I bet you are just dying to know what we keep in all those bins in the arts and crafts storage center! Okay, that might be an exaggeration, but I know I am
curious nosey like that…so I thought I would share. First let me note that we did not purchase anything specifically to fill up the bins. To fill them up we:
- Relocated supplies the kids already owned into one central place (before we had crayons in the pantry, markers in the cupboard, chalk in the garage, etc.)
- I donated items from my own craft stash (scrap paper, leftover project supplies, unopened supplies I bought and never used)
- My mom went through her stash and made significant donations (she had craft supplies leftover from when I was a kid…almost vintage pom poms and pipe cleaners)
I think this is great. I have been looking for ways to organize our small homeschool room, and this is my favorite idea.

Love this! Thanks for sharing! I’m a 4K teacher at Christian school and have been trying to figure out how to have a small free-art center. I think this is it! Thank you!!
LOVE IT! great job.
I am wondering if you can help me out with the inner measurements of these drawers? Trying to plan and hoping to make some Smart Store inserts from The Container Store work with these, but can’t find the inner dimensions of the drawers!
Thank you! Thank you! This is exactly what I was looking for to organize my kids supplies. I wanted something sturdy and not flimsy. A trip to ikea it is and it’s perfect. Thank you so much! Very helpful. Right now I am using older strange bins for this but things are falling out of the bins onto the floor. Not good!
This is so perfect for the space I have, thank you for the inspiration. I already have all the items in my Shopping List on IKEA. Quick Question, where did you get the wire bins?
Clearice, The wire wall bins are from the closet section at The Container Store. I think they were meant to hold shoes?!
