Coke Crate Paint Cubby


When you pick painting as a profession, it piles up on you.

Before you know it, it consumes your world.


I'm a visual person and just looking at paint colors

fuels my fire for inspiration.

Before last night, my paint bottles were tucked away in a plastic bin.

 Unseen and forgotten.

Not a spark for inspiration in sight.

Till I met Meg...

Ya'll. She Rocks!

My words won't do her justice so I will just let you visit and fall in love.

Well.. 

She posted a coke crate holding her paints and I just had to...too :)




Marc came home from work last night and it was raining hard.

I gave him a minute to change out of his dress clothes then I hit him up.


He didn't even groan this time!

Progress ladies ;)


So he hung two of these lil darlings up for me and now I'm all kinda inspired!


I even cleaned out and pitched 1/2 of them away.

Now I have a new love for my stash.


Thank you Meg for inspiring my socks off.

And thank you hunny for tromping in the rain to fetch my coke crates and hang em.

You are the best hunny a crafty gal could ask for!

  1. What a creative way to store your paint. I am the kind of person who has to have her "stuff" out to be creative. If I put it up, it's our of mind. Great idea!

  3. Don't know if you know this about me or not, but, I am a die-hard Coca Cola fanatic! I even have a big Coke container in my back yard that I fill with flowers in the summer. Those look really cute on your wall. A friend gave me one and I made a Fairy Garden out of it.

    Cute, cute, cute.

  6. Love the Coke crates. I have a similar storage system in my studio/hobby room. I don't have cool Coke crates but I did find some rustic wood cubbies at a yard sale and store my paints in a similar fashion.

  8. I love that you found Meg. She has a lot of great ideas. I have been following her for quite some time, and it really makes me want to go back to Kansas to the Barn antique place where she takes her craft weekend ladies. SO FUN!!!
