Open storage for children's things makes sense but there are always some things that could stand to be behind closed doors. I give my kids the run of basic art supplies - paper, crayons, markers, oil pastels and colored pencils. It's all kept out in the open and is easily accessible.
But things like scissors, glitter, and glue I keep in an armoire in the dining room. They're not hidden but they're not out either. I loved seeing that Courtney of Reckless Glamour also keeps her craft supplies in a closed wardrobe. Closed storage means there is no visual clutter and young kids will need to ask first before accessing dangerous or messy supplies. Plus check out the special finish on the wardrobe. Courtney gave it a distressed paint job to give it a vintage feel. For details on this project and to see this wardrobe's "before" shot, check out Reckless Glamour.
