In the Craft Room: Book Storage

book storage

I have hopped on the Ikea bandwagon.  There, I said it and I feel much better about myself.  If you aren’t on this wagon, I suggest you jump on with both hands…or both feet….however that saying goes! 🙂

Now I am not some Ikea spokesperson, but I own exactly one item from Ikea and that has left me wanting more!  What is this one item?  I am fairly certain it is the most well-known item in the sewing /crafting world based on the number of pins, shares, and features it has had over the past several years.  What is this item?  It is the Raskog Utility cart in turquoise.  Of course it comes in other colors, but this was the color I choose.

When I received the item, I really scratched my head on the best way to use it.  Should it hold my  tools, fabric, patterns….I really wasn’t sure.  I played around with many different options, until it finally became the place I keep my most favorite and special books.  And I have to say, I adore it!





With its little wheels, I can move it anywhere I need to and with its sturdy metal construction, I can stack as much stuff in it as needed.

Do you have an Ikea cart?  How do you use it?  I would love to hear from you as I am debating getting another one! 🙂

Have a wonderful day everyone!!

    Yes, I asked for and received two of these great carts for Christmas. I love them! I use one for books with the top shelf holding my cup of
    pens, my planner and the book(s) I am currently reading. The second cart holds sewing I’m planning to work on for Spring and Summer. The top shelf holds my sewing basket, my tin of scissors and my sewing notebook. I love these carts and highly recommend them. I also really love your lovely blog. Thank you, Julie

    • Hi Julie!
      What a fabulous idea for holding sewing projects! I will definitely be doing that with my next cart!
      Thank you so much for commenting and your lovely words about my blog!
