Needing Some Organization Inspiration

Our toy room is also our school room and I'm feeling over-crowded and boxed in since Christmas. We've got TONS of books and TONS of art supplies. I'd love some crafty/cute inspiration on how to get that part organized. I think by most people's standards I'm pretty organized but it just feels like it could be more efficient or creative. Any pics or ideas to share.

We primarily use workbooks/library books and I have a stack of books for each kids' lessons for the day but I'm thinking about some type of box or shelf that could hang on the wall?? I don't have anything that can be closed off like drawers or cabinets in the room and I'd like the bins etc. to look pretty without spending a fortune.

What about a magazine rack that hangs on the Wall or spice racks for the books maybe one for each child? I also like the concept of rain gutter shelves.

Spice racks and little glass Jars can be great to sort small arte and crafts things.

I've never heard of the spice rack bookshelves and that may be exactly what I'm looking for. Here's a link:

I don't have any long stretches of wall space for the rain gutter shelves but these look sturdy and I think they are just the right size. Thanks! Now I've still got to tackle the art supplies.
