Organize craft paints with recycled cans

Do you have as much craft paint as I do?  Storing that rainbow of paint can be difficult, especially if you want it in such a way that you can easily tell at a glance what colors you have on hand or find the one you need.  Angie at The Country Chic Cottage had a great idea; she used an assortment of cans and tins to display her collection in an orderly fashion.  Imagine the time you'll save by not having to hunt for colors, and the money you'll save by not accidentally ending up with a half a dozen bottles of the same shade!  [how to organize craft paints with recycled cans]

Project estimate:

  • Craft paints, on hand
  • Recycled cans, on hand

Total:  Free!

    Love this idea! I don’t paint that much but this would be a great way to store it if I decide to branch into that aspect.

    This is a great idea for my Ikea craft shelves – those 18 x 18 box units. My dear one built me a fold down table (never folded yet!) that’s attached to the unit. Anyway, I can find cans to fill one of the boxes! Thanks!
