I don't know about you but I drop a lot of money in the beginning of the school year. My most frequent places to go are the dollar store and IKEA. The new IKEA catalog was just delivered to my house and the following items are on my top ten wish list. I won't purchase all of them, not enough coin, but I will look wistfully at them and perhaps purchase a few. What items are on your wish list this season?
From top left:
DRONA box $5.99
These slide right into the storage units. I use them at home to store a lot of craft supplies and toys. And though they are fabric they hold up really well. I would use these to hold craft supplies; felt, burlap, and raffia would all be so nicely put away in these bins. Plus they come in a bunch of colors.
RASKOG rolling storage cart $49.99
I foresee me putting all of my glazes on this three tiered cart. I could roll it out and in during those full clay weeks. Plus it looks so cool.
KVISSLE cable management box $9.99
I am fortunate enough to have a lot of technology in my art room. Which is great. All those messy cords are not great. They drive me crazy. This could help me feel better about the mess, you know just put it in a box.
ENUDDEN towel rack $5.99
I purchased two of these. I'll hang them one above the other near my rags. That way they won't get so foul smelling so fast … at least I hope so. For 6 bucks a piece it's worth a try to me. I can always use them to hang extra smocks.
SORTERA recycling bin with lid $9.99
I'm planning on going back for a few of these. I'm going to put them in the hallway outside my room to collect the items that I ask families to collect for me. I think this should alleviate kiddos interrupting my teaching to hand me a paper towel tube. They come in 2 sizes too.
BOLMEN step stool $7.99
My sinks are just too tall for those little Kinders. This should help.
MARIUS stool $4.99
I would like these to go around my computer table. They could easily be pushed under the table when not in use. It might even be helpful to a few extra for when we have visitors. They stack, so they would be easy to store.
IKEA PS 2014 coat rack $29.99
A splurge, but it would be nice to have something classy to hang my bags and coat on.
IKEA PS 1995 clock $39.99
I don't have a clock that's easy to see on one side of my room. I wish I had the cash to blow on this little item of beauty. (Plus, I could hide my key to the paper closet inside it so no one would take my stuff!)
KALLAX shelf $89.99
I actually have one of these already. I put doors on it and display 3-dimensional projects on it. I love it. I get lots of compliments on how it looks in the hallway and I would take another in a heart beat. The Drona boxes from above slide in perfectly for all your storage needs.
What about you guys, what's on your creative space wish list?
