Art Supplies Get a Pretty New Home

I love to create scrapbooks and mixed media journals and all sorts of artsy things, so my stash of supplies is, well, enormous. I have a slight sickness when it comes to organization and my things having a "home," so when the quantity of pretty glitter glues became overwhelming, a new container was needed for storing them. I use them alot, so I wanted them to be easily accessible, and of course, I wanted them to be in something "pretty!" ...in comes that wonderful man again...

A two by four and a drill and he was off to creating.
It was a little rough around the edges, but it was just what I wanted. It would fit perfectly on the art studio island!
I added some layers of paint and took the palm sander to it....then I hand sanded the edges of the holes where it was extra rough from the drill bit.....
 ...it looked so sweet loaded with those soft "sherbety" rainbow of colors!




 Did I mention he rocks?

This is so clever! You should make these and sell them -- all of us crafters know how annoying it is to have to shake our bottles all the time -- great idea!!
