With this always in the back of my mind, each time I
browse a yard sale or the Goodwill I keep an eye

and baskets to hold all my treasured art supplies.
|This fine wood box once held gloves. I added the|
black cigar box to replace the missing drawer.
As we near the completion of the ceiling and walls
of the studio renovation (for the step-by-step tutorial

little imagination (and occasionally surfing the
web for ideas!) to create fun and funky storage.

|You can't go wrong with the photo boxes you can|
find on sale for a few dollars at craft stores.

have the added bonus of a rope handle.
