Shoe Rack Craft Punch Storage

Punching Martha Stewart…Martha Stewart Punches

I rarely go to garage sales, but this morning I was on my way to Lowe’s to get some bead board for another project and I was summoned by a sign announcing “Huge Garage Sale”.  Sometimes the stars align just right and you get pointed in the direction of a great sale.  LOL!

I was so excited to find the perfect thing for my craft punches and for only FIVE DOLLARS!!  (Say what?!)  Yes, FIVE DOLLARS!

$5 Garage Sale Shoe Rack

Behind the shoe rack is some of the bead board I just had cut at Lowes.

Here it is!!  (What? It’s just a shoe rack.  You got us all excited over a shoe rack?)  Well, wait until you see how awesome it is at non-shoe storage!

Shoe Rack Become Paper Punch Storage

You are so shoe-rack-beautiful to me…

TA DA!!!  Well, whaddya think?  I super love this shoe rack turned punch rack.
It’s SHOERIFFICPUNCH A LICIOUS…GREAT!  Some of my punches didn’t really fit so I’m keeping them in one of the black buckets I showed you here.  I’m down to one bucket now though!  YAY!  I realized that if I can’t see the the punches, I rarely use them.  Hopefully, I’ll use them more now that they are displayed and easy to grab.

Another Punch Storage Idea

 A lot of people store their punches on over-the-door shoe holders like this one: Over The Door Clear Shoe Organizer.  That’s a great idea too!

  3. I would not have thought of that, thanks for all the great ideas for those of us that don’t think outside the box lol

    1. Thank you all for the nice comments! I’m glad you liked my idea! 🙂

  4. I have a wooden cd or video rack that I have hung on my wall above my desk. I keep my cricut cartridges in it. They are similar in size to videos so they fit perfectly. The other thing I love are old printer boxes. I have mounted 2 of those on my wall above my desk and they are perfect for stamps. Hope someone finds these ideas helpful.

    1. Annied,
      I LOVE your cd/video rack idea!! I better stay away from garage sales for a while or I’ll be snapping up all the cd/video racks that I see. AWESOME storage ideas!

    1. Kim T,
      I am SO glad I stopped by that garage sale. The only problem? Now I want to go to more garage sales. LOL!

  6. What a great idea for storing these. Mine right now are all over the place, in a drawer, in my traveling paper tote pockets….I have to try to remember where I have them stored when I want to use them. Time to look into another option, this one looks good.

  7. What a great idea Joy! Of course mine are stored differently…. My hubby built me a rotating punch holder…. 😉
    I LOVE that thing…. Of course I’ve out grown it and told him I would like another one… He thinks I’m NUTS! LOL
    I think I would need a 5 foot rotating punch holder instead of a 2 1/2 ft. one! LOL I’m soooo addicted to punches! ugh!

    Have a great day! 😉

    1. WOW Theresa!! A rotating punch holder! A 5 foot rotating punch holder? Ok, you’re hubby is awesome to make that! How cool! Here’s hoping he builds you a 5 ft one. 🙂

    Annied! Wow thanks SO much for the video rack idea! As soon as I read it I spun around in my chair and looked to the top of my 12×12 pigeon hole wall and there it is… My old school video drawers! Whoop! Now I just have to wait for hubby to finish washing the dog so he can reach up to get it down for me :/ Why oh why was I born without patience?

    PS Joy, you ROCK! I am sending John out to the garage right after he gets down my video drawers to build me something similar!
