Organizing craft materials in a desk creates a space that has a dual purpose. The bulletin board is useful for posting sketches, supply lists, instructions or photos that inspire the creation of crafts. The desktop can house containers for pencils, brushes or a small spice drawer filled with various labeled supplies. For projects that require paper materials, a desk with a set of file drawers and drawer organizers is an option.

A sewing table concentrates a large quantity of materials to a designated section of a craft room. A long but narrow worktable makes a useful fabric station that houses a sewing machine and thread spools. Clear peg boards organize scissors and small containers. A small shelving unit stores journals, albums, craft books and knitting supplies.

If the craft room contains a closet, the space can be converted into a storage area. Containers such as glass jars, bins and shelves are utilized to house incomplete projects or materials that are not used often. Fabrics can be organized in clear containers, while artwork is stored in secure boxes of an appropriate size, and a wall-mounted bike rack makes handy gift wrapping storage. The closet doors are removed and replaced with drapes for easy and open access.
