Q: We have an open set-up in our house so one messy room can be seen throughout the house. We do our arts-and-crafts projects in the kitchen so there are always crayons, markers, papers spread out. While I try to keep some sense of order it is nearly impossible. I have spent way too much time trying to find an organizational system. I am wondering what others do to keep the supplies in control. I have room for a piece of furniture that is about 30" wide - just can't find anything that would do the job and look decent in our open kitchen! Any suggestions??
