I have a small area in which I do a lot of crafts. My collection of wrapping paper seems to grow this time of the year. Here's a way I make my small area more efficient and a space saver with cup hooks, wood dowels and plastic or metal chains. I suspend the chains underneath my shelves and run my dowels through the chains. The chains are attached underneath the counter with cup hooks.
