Learn all about the Create Room cubby and see for yourself how much stuff it can hold! Perfect craft storage system!
If you have been in the crafting community for a while then I’m sure you’ve seen the videos of the amazing Dreambox by Create Room. I know that big boy has been on my wish list for a long time!
But did you know that Create Room also sells other furniture that is super useful for any type of crafter?? Their other furniture items consist of a cool sew station, a dreamcart, and a cubby!
Create Room sent me a craft cubby to try it out and I was amazed at how much stuff it actually held! So let’s talk first about what comes in the box and then I wanted to give you a few tips when setting it up.

What Comes in the Create Room Cubby Box
The Create Room cubby came in two separate boxes. One is the cubby itself and the other is the drawers I ordered and the shelves.
The assembly of the craft cubby was really straight forward and pretty quick. There are really only a few boards you have to assemble and all the screws and parts come in labeled bags.
The cubby itself measures 28″ wide x 15″ deep x 28.5″ tall. It is nice and compact to fit really anywhere! You can even get more than one and stack them on top of each other to create even more storage especially if you have a small crafting space.
You can place the tracks in anyway you want to customize where you want the drawers. I put all my large flat drawers on oneside since I knew I would store my iron on vinyl in those.
When ordering the cubby, you will select between two different sets of drawers. Both types come with three shelves and 16 tracks.
- DiviDrawers – These come in three different sizes, 2 XL, 5 Large, and 6 Medium drawers.
- InView Tote Package – These come in two different sizes, a shoe box size and large flat tote. They are completely clear on all sides so you can see what is in them. These are the ones I have!
The drawers are nice and long. Much longer than some other bins I got from Amazon, as you can tell from the picture below.
Look at how many acrylic paint bottles just one Inview tote holds!
Tips for Putting Together Cubby
As I mentioned above the assembly was pretty easy. The only part that we had to redo a few times was trying to figure out how much room we needed to leave in between the tracks for the different size drawers!
So to make it easy for you, here are a few tips:
- The long flat drawers will rest on the tracks themselves (no shelves). We found the perfect spacing to give the large drawers room was two peg holes in between the tracks. My top drawer track was placed on the second hole down from the top and then I left two holes in between and placed another. The tracks insert easily with just a push!
Then they slide nice and easy right on the tracks.
- For the shoebox size tote, you will use the 3 shelves that are included. The shelves rest right on top of the track. I found that 4 peg holes in between the tracks to work perfectly!
- 6 of the shoe box totes will fit on the shelves and then the other 4 will sit on the bottom of the cubby (2 on each side).
Organizing Craft Supplies in Cubby
Ok, let’s start putting craft supplies in the cubby! I had a ton of craft supplies I wanted to fit inside including lots of glitter, rolls of HTV, glue gun supplies, jewelry making supplies, different glues, paints, and more!
If you’ve been following me for a while you know I have redone my craft room multiple times because I have craft supplies in the office, dining room, kitchen and beyond!
Can you believe all of this stuff fit in this compact storage unit and that I can actually easily see what’s in the drawers?!!
The flat drawers really can fit two layers of rolled vinyl in them. So luckily I have more space in them for my ever growing collection of iron on vinyl! I love using slap bracelets on them to keep the rolls contained!
The drawers hold all of my bottles of glue, paint, mod podge, etc perfectly and they are really easy to pull out and grab what I need!
Yes, I also have a thing with glitter!
You can always put a piece of cardstock in the InView drawers and then label all the drawers but I prefer to see where everything is!
