Who couldn’t use a little more DIY room organization especially when it comes to the craziness that is a craft room? From markers to paintbrushes and tools, there always seems to be a need when it comes to proper storage options for your precious craft supplies. I whipped up this quick and easy craft room organizer to help me on my endless pursuit to clean up my room and thought you guys would find it useful as well!
- Darice 3.75″ Galvanized Pails (3)
- Darice 1/2″ x 12″ Wood Dowel Rod
- Darice 1 1/4″ Wood Head Bead
- Darice 3″ Wood Cutout Circle
- Small Screws
- Darice Hot Glue Gun
- Darice Precision Pliers
- Drill/Drill Bits
Step 2. Once paint is completely dry, use a small screw to affix the head bead to the top of the dowel rod. You can use your drill or even a screwdriver since the head bead comes with a pre-drilled hole. Handy, huh? I really love my I SPY DIY 5-in-1 Metal Craft Hammer with 4 built-in screwdrivers. It’s super cute and functional!
Step 3. Use pliers to remove the galvanized pail handles. If you’d like, you can also use the pliers to remove one of the handle holders from each pail. Make sure only to remove one, you’ll be using the other one to screw through!
Step 5. Use small screws to affix the galvanized pails to the dowel rod. I had a hard time getting my large drill into such a small space so I ended up screwing them by hand with a screwdriver. You may have better luck though!
Step 6. Now that all the pails are attached to the dowel rod handle, you’ll find that the three pails are still very unstable since they’re only attached with small screws. This next step will probably make experienced woodworkers cringe but it totally helps with stability and gets the job done! Use a good amount of hot glue to attach the wood circle cutout to the bottom of the three pails. Once the glue has dried completely you’ll be surprised just how much more stable your craft room organizer is!
Step 7. All you have to do now to complete this DIY room organization project, is fill your craft organizer with supplies. Need to take them to another room? No problem, just carry the whole organizer by the handle and you’re good to go!
I hope you find this craft room organizer as useful as I do! One of the really fun things about this project is that you could easily use it to organize tons of different things in your house. I could totally see this used as a utensil carrier for picnics or a school supply desk organizer for your kids. The uses are endless!
