How to Create Craft Paint Storage in Old Drawers

This project came about as a result of an exciting new opportunity for me! A couple of months ago, I became part of the DecoArt Art Room Team. You’ve probably seen DecoArt products (craft paint, decoupage medium, stencils, etc.) at your favorite craft store…and you’ve definitely seen little bottles of their paints in my project photos over the years. They were my favorite brand long before I got a chance to work with them.

I had seen this idea on Pinterest not too long ago because I thought it was a fantastic way to organize the itty-bits in my Craft Room. Over the years, I have collected and gathered any number of small “bits”… buttons, beads, jewelry findings, bells, pom poms…you get the picture. So I had added “Spice Rack” to my never-ending list of things to hunt for in thrift stores. This post contains affiliate links for your crafting convenience.Read more ›
