I thought I’d give you a quick tour of how I store my art supplies. I’m a big fan of keeping my art supplies out where I can see them. I’m also a big fan of rolling carts….
I keep all of my paints (and gel mediums) in an industrial rolling cart – perfect for moving them around.
Rolls of wallpaper and wrapping paper hang out in a large vintage basket.
I keep smaller pieces of paper in a rolling cart of drawers, organized by color.
I keep more papers and book sources in a pink trunk. All my papers are out and easily accessible. I find that I don’t use my supplies unless I can SEE them in front of me.
I keep my ribbons in my very own tiered tray. If you’re interested, you can purchase one here.
Inks and such:
I keep my spray inks, ink pads, and alphabet stamps in tiered baskets. And I keep brushes, texture tools, and stencils in one of my rolling carts (from IKEA).
I keep more stencils and stamps in another rolling cart (from IKEA).
Pens, Pencils, and more
I keep small buckets of pens and pencils and other small stuff in a roundabout that sits on my studio table. Love this thing. I bought it from Create-ologie which no longer exists online.
I found these vintage containers and they’re perfect for holding small ephemera, such as buttons, stamps, and more.
