The New Tool Cubby is larger than the original, opening up a whole new range of possibilities both creative and functional. Creators can now utilize more storage space inside, creating room for more of what they love.

“I love my New Tool Cubby and I’m so happy that Create Room made a new version to fit the Dreambox 2 perfectly. Sometimes, I think collecting pens is as fun as using them so I have a lot! I love being able to make my favorite ones super accessible. I also like to store a few random tools like my craft knife - it’s out of reach of my little kids but right there when I need it!” - Rachel Timmerman, Analytical Mommy

When designing the features of the New Tool Cubby, we wanted to make certain all our creators could enjoy it, regardless of their furniture setup. See below how this desktop organizer fits anywhere, including the DreamBox 1, DreamBox 2, and other Create Room furniture.


DreamBox 2

In the DreamBox 2, the New Tool Cubby is designed specifically to fit vertically inside the middle section of the Center Box for the most ideal workflow. (It can be stored horizontally in the Large Tote sections or the Side Box too!)

The New Tool Cubby is designed to fit perfectly within the center section of the Center Box and in the Side Boxes.

DreamBox 1

Regarding the DreamBox 1, The New Tool Cubby still fits perfectly inside the left or right-hand sections of the Center Box. You can place it horizontally or vertically in the Large Tote sections.

TableTop + Other Create Room Furniture

The New Tool Cubby is designed to seamlessly fit in the DreamBox 2 or rest comfortably on tabletops. This means that whether you're working in a cozy corner of your home, office, or dedicated craft space, this organizer can easily be moved back and forth.

The New Tool Cubby can sit in the DreamBox underneath the center shelves, or on the table as you work.

When needed, creators like Karen can also move their Tool Cubby to the table of their Sew Station, DreamCart, or Cubby for easy access.

“I love that the inside can be custom configured and that it can be moved to wherever I am creating. It’s very easy to keep it horizontal or vertical which gives us lots of options on where to store it!” - Karen Fitzgibbons

In addition to bigger storage and more customization options, the New Tool Cubby also allows you to organize important tools front and center. Now that your tools are thoughtfully organized and easily within reach, you're more likely to find inspiration for new projects striking when you least expect it.

 “The new Tool Cubby was the thing I did not know I needed. It was super easy to assemble and now I can visually see the colors I have available to help me draft up a new project. I am certain that as my needs change, I will be able to change the tools inside to fit them." - Karen Martinez, Mommabearsays
