Share your storage solutions!

I've juuuuuuuussst about brought DH round to the idea of Ikea Expedit storage for my scrap corner (I can't fit the big one in, but can fir a 2-hole wide one with another piece of furniture next to it).

Can you share your photos please so I can prove it works (and 12x12 CM albums fit)? What have you used inside the spaces? Ikea boxes or other stuff? I'm not keen on the plastic boxes - are the doors good or do you forget what they're hiding And do they reduce the available space

I bough 3 FLORT boxes (which zip closed) and are perfect for my many, many swaps - would they fit or are they going to have to stay elsewhere?

Many thanks for your help

Here is my craft room with the expedit furniture. We had just moved in to this house so it's not all put together yet. You can see the albums on the shelf though -- the albums are CM 12 x 12 albums. I love the Expedit -- they are in my craft room, the boys' playroom, and their schoolroom (I homeschool).

Hopefully you are able to view the pictures.

I use the Itso large fabric bins from Target. They fit perfectly.

Good luck!

I love this, but haven't seen or heard of it previously. Where do you purchase?


Looks beautiful & lots of storage and organizing.

Congrats on new home

I'd share a photo, Mazda, if only I could get Photobucket to work for me this morning. I have the 2x4. It holds my 12x12 albums just fine, but it will NOT hold albums if you put the doors on because they take up space. The doors fit IN the spaces rather than flush on the front. The squares are ~33.5 cm /side 13.25 inches.

Thanks :-)! Since the picture, I have actually bought another table and moved both (back to back) to the center of the room. I bought 2 more 2x2 cubes and put them all against the wall where the desk used to be. It's messy right now and I don't have a nice picture to share.

The furniture is from IKEA.

Please excuse the weird angle - I was trying to get as much in as possible.

Thanks I'll show to DH later. mlktwins I am sooo jealous of your huge (and tidy!) craft space - I have one alcove in the dining room for storage plus about 1/3 of the space on one edge of the conservatory (which will take the 2-wide expedit and one storage tower for 12x12 paper - eventually!).
