Paint Storage Ideas

Hello friends and welcome to another Friday of tips and tricks that we love to share with you. This week I am sharing Paint Storage Ideas! I am really in the mood to purge and organize all the things, but it’s much simpler and less overwhelming if I break it down into rooms or categories. So today, my focus is on organizing my paint collection, and maybe it’s something you need to organize too! 

There are all kinds of ways to organize and store your paint. The key is finding what works for you and your space. Here are some really great ideas to inspire you to organize your paint collection too!

Color coordinate your paints in a crate that has different compartments.

Store paints in buckets or baskets. Step it up a notch more and hang them on the wall.

Use a dresser to store your paints! You can add dividers or baskets if necessary.

Hang your paint from the wall by making these PVC and wire shelves!

This fold down desk is pretty cool and even has paint storage built right in.

Photo boxes are great for storing smaller bottles of paint. 

A hanging shoe storage bag for spray paint? Genius!

Spice racks can hold paints as well! 

This DIY rolling paint storage is really cool and convenient for small spaces. 

DIY shelves or a hutch works great for paint storage too. Be sure to measure your paint bottles and cans so you make your shelves the right height!

And there you have it, friends! Ten different ways to inspire you to organize and store you paint in a more convenient way for you. Do you have any other paint storage ideas? We’d love to hear from you!

Join us next week for more organizing tips! Have a great weekend, y’all!

DIY Recycled Doll Desk

Hello friends! As you know, my daughter and I love to craft together. She comes up with lots of great ideas, and I just love being creative with her. The other day after a grocery shopping trip to Walmart, she asked if we could use some of the leftover boxes and packages to make furniture for her doll house. I thought it was such a cute idea, so we thought we’d share the DIY Recycled Doll Desk with y’all too!

Didn’t it turn out super cute? Can’t even tell it was a Nature Valley™ Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars box and one of the yogurt containers from the Yoplait® Original Fridge Pack turned doll desk and chair. Now that you’ve seen it, I bet you and your little girl want to make one too! 

First you want to head to your local Walmart and pick up some of your favorite General Mills foods. Some of our favorites are Honey Nut Cheerios™, Yoplait® Original Fridge Pack, Mott’s Medleys® Fruit Snacks, Nature Valley™ Oats N Honey Granola Bars, and Totino’s™ Combination Pizza Party Pack. Bonus- when you purchase 5 participating items + scan the receipt with Box Tops for Education Bonus App, you earn $5 (50 Bonus Box Tops) towards your school (offer available through 1/31/18). 

Earn even more cash to help your school get what it needs through the Box Tops for Education® Bonus App. Turn your everyday receipts into cash for your school! It’s free and as easy. Here’s how it works:

  • Buy: Find offers. Buy Products.
  • Scan: Scan your receipt.
  • Earn Watch earnings stack up.

You can earn Bonus Box Tops in the Box Tops Bonus App in combination with the on-pack Box Tops clips and any other coupon, discount, store program or promotion. So be sure to cut out those Box Tops before you get your craft on!

Next, you’ll need tape measure/ruler, scissors, hot glue gun and glue, a pencil/marker, a razor blade, scrapbook paper, ribbon/lace, beads, and a ruler to get your recycled craft on. We measured the height of the desk to be 5 inches tall and 6 inches wide, because that’s what worked best with the size of doll/doll house we are working with (think 11.5 inch doll). We used one half of the Nature Valley™ Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars box for the desk, and set the other half aside for later. After measuring, cutting, and trimming the box, we covered it with scrapbook paper and hot glued on beads as the knobs. 

Didn’t it turn out so cute? Next we needed to make a chair, so we recycled a container from the Yoplait® Original Fridge Pack. We covered it with ribbon, paper, and lace and adhered everything with hot glue. 

Girly and pretty, perfect for my daughter’s doll house. 

Once we were finished did the he doll desk, we decide to make a recycled container to store all of our Box Tops! We used the other half of the Nature Valley™ Crunchy Oats ‘n Honey Granola Bars box, covered it in paper, and added glitter stickers and a slot to slip the Box Tops in. 

Now we have a cute place to keep them all so they don’t get lost or accidentally thrown away. 

Box Tops for Education is important to our family because education is important to our family. Although I no longer teach in the classroom anymore and I homeschool, we still support our local schools. Plus, my husband is a high school culinary arts teacher, so education ranks high in our home. 

Recycling is also important to us! So get creative with your ‘trash’ before you discard it! We had so much fun working together on these projects that it turned out to fit right in line with our goal of “less things, more experiences” this year. Get creative with your kids while also collecting those Box Tops for Education. 

Head to your local Walmart for participating General Mills products and download the Box Tops App (iTunes and Google Play) so that you can earn money for your schools too! 

Do you collect Box Tops too? What kinds of crafts are your kids’ favorites?
