Kid in a candy store - scrap storage

I've had this dream of a craft room inspired by an old fashioned candy shoppe because surrounded by craft supplies I really am like I kid in a candy store.

To help that along I put some of my colorful bits and pieces in jars with lids that I spray painted black. Recently I added a thrift store find to hold my scraps of yarn that I've wound into balls.

It's colorful like candy so it works, doesn't it? :)

Below: my recycled food jars with painted lids store my buttons and ribbon scraps.

It's just a start, but it has to start somewhere!

What do you dream your craft space to look like?

That sounds like a lot of fun. You're off to a great start. I dream that my space is much larger with a lot more light!
