White elfa Craft Closet
Ultimate Creative Closet
This is the Creative Closet of my dreams! It was designed by an Elfa expert at my local store and installed by the Container Store team (shout-out for arriving early and getting it done in under an hour!).
With this organization system (and a little purging), this closet now holds everything that was falling out of this same, too-full closet before -- as well as SIX shelves of craft supplies from the garage -- photo albums, paper, adhesives, cutting instruments, patterns, greeting cards and more. The cabinet-depth drawers are turned so that they open into the center of my narrower-than-most closet. They hold all of my sewing fabric, gift bags/tissue paper/ribbon, and electronic cords. The counter-height "desk top" and the tool wall make it super-easy to write out a quick note or seal up a package. (A placemat holder and a K-Cup holder hanging from the center shelf hold mailing envelopes and labels.) NO MORE SEARCHING for patterns, supplies or cards!
Taking the doors off the closet was suggested by the designer, and I'm so glad I did. It makes me smile each time I walk by! Having everything so organized and easy-to-find has also inspired new creative projects!

Sewing it Up
I removed my sewing machine from a wooden cabinet and consolidated boxes of supplies and fabrics into this workspace.
Neat, efficient and looks great!

While on vacation in MN, I saw this craft closet on display and I knew I had to have it! I waited for it to go on sale and purchased the bottom secton only. I was NOT disappointed. It was very easy to put together and all four sections hooked together nicely. I was able to empty my workroom in the basement of my craft items and put them in their designated drawers with labels on the outside. The items including all my gift wrapping supplies are organized and easily accessible. It has made my life easier and I don't have to hunt for things anymore!

Sewing closet of my dreams!
We finally "let go" of our daughters closet since she's been married for a few years. Now I have the sewing and crafts closet of my dreams! Everything is right where I need it, not in other closets all over the house! And I can find everything since everything has it's own place!
I can work on projects and easily put supplies away - or leave it out until the next day. What a great feeling. Makes room in other closets so they are more organized, too! We were able to put this closet together ourselves with no problem. The directions are very clear and easy.
