Budget Friendly Craft Room Storage Solutions

Wood Pallet Storage DIY

This post has been a long time coming.  I originally shared it with It’s So Very Cheri a few weeks back.  I have been dying to show you ever since I started the project.  Here it is, dear readers.  Today, I am going to reveal part of my craft room organization – the pallet organizers!  This project was so rewarding because my creative space was in desperate need of help. 

You may have seen this picture in my post where I admitted I had a serious problem…

Craft room organizing

Something needed to happen, am I right?!  Storage solutions are abundant, but can be expensive when purchased in big box stores.  I was determined to get creative and come up with some budget friendly ways to get it together.

I decided it was time to go vertical and make use of the abundant wall space. While driving around and looking for garage I spied a huge pile of pallets at a local Brewery.  They were happy to part with 2 of them, which I loaded into my truck and brought home. 

I cleaned them with the hose, let them dry, then I spray painted them black with Krylon Dual (paint and primer in one). 

Next I mounted them onto my wall and attached various racks/shelves I picked up at various thrift stores.  There was not much planning here.  I just spray painted the racks so everything was black, and attached them to the pallets like I would attach them to the wall.  That way, the only wall holes are the ones for the pallet.  Everything else hangs on the pallet, and is adjustable.

I got the white horizontal tubs at the hardware store for $1.50 each.  They are great for fabric. 

Once you get the pallets hung, you can customize them to fit your needs.  Here are some examples…

I am super happy with my pallet storage units.  The only holes in the wall are where I hung the pallets. Best of all… free!  Yeah, it took some time and effort, but it was well worth it.
