Brilliant Idea for Stencil Storage!

Thanks to a post on StencilGirl Talk, by Carolyn Dube, sharing how she and Maria McGuire store their stencils, I've been able to adapt their idea to fit my studio space and now I've got a great way to store my stencils, while keeping them visible and easily accessible!  My method also gives me some shelf space to store my magazines!


In this shot you can see the J Hooks (S-11655) along with the labels I've made so I can organize the stencils alphabetically by designer. [note: the above line gets you to the Canadian warehouse for U-Line.  If you want the US link, it's available in Carolyn's post on StencilGirl Talk]

Only $20 for four feet of closet shelving complete with the hardware needed to hang it, an easy installation (make sure you're screwing into studs if you plan to have any weight on the shelf!), plus the J hooks and its ready to use!

Thanks so much Carolyn and Maria!  I never would have thought of this fabulous idea without your inspiration! It's the perfect solution since I don't have room for those amazing racks that you use!

  4. Great idea!! Mine are in binders and drawers where I can't see them. This is so much better.

    1. Yes, if you're like me, if you can't see them you don't likely use them (or not as much as you would if they were visible and tempting you).
