As the nesting continues at Just a Girl’s house, I have turned to art supplies. I used to store everything in a drawer inside pencil boxes, but that just never worked well enough. So I decided to try something else.
I bought this box years ago (to put diapers in, if that tells you how long ago!) at Target. I thought it was the perfect solution for my art supplies.
Of course, we’ve got to have some cute containers for all those supplies, and I liked the idea of soup cans. Yup…just plain ol’ cans from the pantry. Rip the paper off, wash them out, and you’re done.
My original plan was to spray paint them some fun colors, but I ended up loving the sleek contrast of them compared to all the color from the supplies. Silver they stay.
You could always head to the dollar section at Target and buy these. I love them.
Now when my kids want to draw or color, they know that they go into the hutch and get this bad boy out. They know they aren’t done picking up until everything is put back into its place and the box is stored away.
It may seem like an excess of supplies, but when you can buy crayons for .10 cents a box right now, this is the time to buy!
