I am not sure this is advise, but my scrap "area" is one of those skinny tables that fits behind the sofa. It has a series of 6 mini shelves in it and two drawers. I placed organizers and my cricut on top. For me, if it doesnt fit there....I dont need it right now. Not that I wouldn't love a larger space so I wouldnt have to dig through things all the time...but you work with what you have.
