Fabric Storage Closet in my Office/Craft Room

I am sure all home decor bloggers have a stash of fabric laying around.  I know I do.  Before rearranging our office/craft room, all of my fabric was shoved into a box.  I had no idea what fabrics I had nor could I find what I needed if I did need it.  

When I decided to redo the office, I knew that I wanted my fabric to be stored in a way that I could see all the fabric I have.  I added so much storage space in the office that I could dedicate a whole bookcase to just my fabric.  So that is what I did.

I bought a Billy bookcase from Ikea and added a Billy Morebo glass door to use as the closet.

To store the fabric, I made mini bolts of fabric with several pieces of foam core from Walmart.  I measured and marked a 20x30 piece of foam core to get eight 7.5x10 mini bolts.

Because I have so much fabric, some of the fabric spilled into another billy bookcase in that room.

I love that I am able to see what fabric I have on hand now.  What do you think?  How do you store your fabric?

The office/craft room is almost done and I can't wait to show you the whole thing.  It is so organized.  A great place to work.

Don't forget, my Tuesday link party is still going on.  I would love it if you would link up.


  1. Lauren, it's beautiful and so organized; just the way I like things in my craft room to be! Excellent idea you had using an IKEA billy bookcase and then using pieces of foam core! I really can't wait to see your craft room! ;-) Hope you are having a great weekend!

  2. I love that you used the foam boards as cores for the bolts. Such a good idea!!! We'll be featuring this over at Someday Crafts tomorrow and we'd love it if you stopped by! :)

  3. Such a wonderful idea!! I was actually trying to figure out a way to store and organize my fabric last night.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Such a great idea. LOVED the way it turned out! It's so much nicer when you can actually see what you have :)

  5. This is a fantastic idea! I have piles of fabric everywhere and can never find what I'm looking for. I like the mini bolts made of foam core. Great idea. I'll probably be copy catting this one!

  6. It's so neat and tidy! I love it.

  7. Love those mini bolts! Must add this to my To Do List
