Yes, we are a bit obsessed with storage.  Living in a small space and being a crafter aren’t always a good match. Whenever possible, we both look for furniture with built-in storage.  A coffee table/blanket chest can serve as craft storage. Or those great new ottomans at CostPlus that have storage AND a tray built-in.  There’s your craft work table in 2 square feet.

One of our best finds was a Duo-Bed daybed that a friend was selling.  It looks like a funky 60s couch, but the seat cushion pulls out into a single bed.  You can just see the plastic blanket box underneath, which houses the knitting yarn stash.  The best part of the Duo-Bed is the backrest, which flips up to reveal a small bookcase. Just the right height for DVD storage – or storing cones of weaving yarn. Nothing gets dusty and you can see all your supplies at once.

“Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up.” – A. A. Milne
