I have been lusting after this Awesome Ikea RAskog cart FOREVER! It’s absolutely my favorite color…has wheels and its just the perfect size! (it does come in cream, dark gray and this light blue!)
I put an amazon link because our closest Ikea isn’t close…so it’s cheaper for me to go the amazon route! If you are close to Ikea it’s cheaper AT Ikea!
I have a craft room…but often like to spread out in the living room (because that is where the family is) So I thought one of these carts would be great…load it up with the supplies I need and wheel it from room to room. But as I was on pinterest I noticed that people have been using these cool carts in SO Many clever ways!

I thought I’d share what I put in ours in case you needed a bit of “Homework Station” inspiration. Up top I have a simple pencil box full of colored pencils, next to it scotch tape, a white-out pen thing-a-ma-bob, and a pencil sharpener. I also have little jars with kid scissors, crayons, pencils, gluesticks and erasers…you can never have too many erasers, am I right?
In the middle shelf I keep a big jar filled with fat markers, a small glass jar filled with fine tip markers, a mason jar of thick paint brushes, tempura paint, and a box of craft sticks.
The bottom shelf is for extra notebooks, folders, and paper. I keep a few of these fun plastic paper protectors I found in the Target Dollar Spot. You just slip a piece of paper into them and write on them with erasable markers…perfect for practicing spelling and writing and math!
