Mrs. Fixit: Craft Paint Storage

I love painting all of my tag sale and flea market finds with acrylic craft paints. Toting them here and there is a pain but I went to a workshop and found the perfect solution.

A standard 16 x 9 toolbox with a tool tray inside is exactly what you need to keep everything neat, organized and ready for painting.

Two ounce craft paints can fit perfectly in the bottom of the toolbox and there is so much room, that I was able to fit 55 bottles in it.

Here's a tip - if you store your paints upside down, you can easily see and choose the color that you need.

All of my brushes, sponges and other applicators fit easily into the top tool tray so they are right where I need them.

One of my favorite things about this toolbox is that if a bottle of paint happens to leak, it won't seep through and make a mess. Also the plastic can be easily cleaned up.

How is that for easy and portable craft paint storage? It just goes to show you ? always think outside the box.
