I saw this idea over at Funky Junk Interiors a while ago and finally got around to carrying it out in my craft room. I had an old Coca-Cola crate in the basement that I’ve been wanting to do something clever with and this fits the clever criteria for me. I cleaned it up with the hose outside and it gave it a light coat of clear polyurethane.

I grouped my acrylic paint colors by color family in the little cubbies and now I have a great acrylic craft paint storage solution. So much better than the plastic shoe boxes that my paints used to be stored in – I love it!
