Sure! I'd take a picture but the big fiasco at my house tonight is that we can't find the camera (of course, the day before a major holiday involving lots of family and cute outfits).
Along the bottom shelf I have four big baskets. I have a whole big basket for coloring, and keep both the crayons and the coloring books in there. Another big basket for paints, including smocks. There's a basket for collage, which is kind of a catch-all for little things that we've picked up: pompoms, foam shapes, googly eyes, popsicle sticks. Not very Waldrofy it's true, but sometimes you just need some googly eyes! The fourth basket has play-dough, and it takes up a whole basket because we've managed to amass a lot of weird little tools and stuff.
Above that we have some smaller baskets. Also on that shelf is paper. I try to reuse paper whenever possible, including sometimes junk mail or old wrapping paper. That's stacked to the side, and yes it always looks messy, but since everything else is in baskets I don't mind so much. We have smaller baskets for: adhesives (glue and tape), markers, stamps, yarn and fiber, and fabric scraps.
For my stuff, I have a mix of big, medium, and small boxes from this
line. As I said, they're just cardboard but they're fairly strong. I don't think strong enough to handle daily rough handling from my kids, but good enough for my purposes. The big ones are for quilting (mostly templates, some oversized patterns, a few larger tools), embroidery (lots of kits), and yarn kits. Medium sized ones hold patterns (I have 8 of those alone!), and one each for ribbon, lace, fasteners (my catch-all for buttons, snaps, extra zippers), and trim (braid, piping, elastic). Small ones hold either fabric scraps, or materials for specific crafts: I have one for beading, one for lace crochet. The Ikea ones have little metal slots in the front, so I just hand-wrote what was in each box.
I also have two little wooden chests similar to this
, but with different sized drawers. In the two long drawers (they go the whole length of the chest) I have knitting needles and scissors. There are medium-sized drawers that go halfway, and then small ones that go 1/3. I can't remember what's in all of them, but I know I have separate drawers for pins, needles, marking pens/pencils, blades, quilting notions, bias tape makers, etc. Each drawer is labeled just with labeling tape.
Do you have an Ikea near you? They have tons and tons and tons of storage systems and options, and many of them are very nice wooden ones. I already had shelves, so what I basically did was measure the shelves I had and then I went to Ikea and figured out which baskets and boxes best fit the space available, with the least amount of leftover room. Then I went home and sorted things in ways that made sense from a labeling perspective. I had to be able to describe what was in each basket in two words or less!
Even if you don't have an Ikea, someplace like World Market where they sell a lot of different baskets might work.
