    • Have It All

      An extra room allows you, your budding Picasso, and the rest of your family an entire studio. Smart use of space accommodates two full workstations -- with room to spare for a younger sibling.

    • Hung Up on Storage

      A canvas shoe organizer hung from clip-on curtain rings functions as a cool window treatment while storing art supplies. The pocket depth is perfect for colored pens and pencils, paintbrushes, and notepads of various sizes.

    • Space for Everything

      An entire wall of storage allows for a standing-height workstation. Add an adjustable shelving unit to give your children the space they need to let their creativity run wild.

    • Conquer Unruly Ribbon

      A mod paper towel holder is the perfect solution for wrangling unruly ribbon or twine. The end of the worktable becomes gift-wrap central with the addition of tall rolling bins for wrapping paper and a ribbon rod to keep spools ready to use.

    • See-Through Storage

      A see-through pocket organizer is perfect for keeping paints and other supplies handy and visible. Different-size pockets fit paint tubes, pencils, and notebooks, and the durable plastic can be taken down and rinsed for easy cleanup.

    • Plenty of Surface Area

      A 5-foot-long desktop provides plenty of surface space to spread out multiple projects and lay scrapbooks and photo albums flat. An adjustable chair allows both parents and children to work comfortably. If your child is a scrapbooker, consider placing a cutting mat at one end of the desk to protect the top from scratches and dings.

    • Clear Idea

      Clear glass jars are an inexpensive way to keep craft supplies organized. Use an old toothbrush holder to dry brushes and keep them upright.
