Yesterday I told you that I save everything right? Well here's a good example of why! I wanted a good way to store my Copic markers by color. I had the cases they came in, but that wasn't really working for me. I remembered I had seen someone who used a wine rack and clear plastic cups on the internet (this was probably a year or two ago and I remembered how much I liked it, so I don't really have a website to refer you to on that one).
One night Jeff & I were stopping at the Verizon store, which happens to be right next door to Pier I Imports, so I popped in there & picked up a couple of the wine racks you see here, they were only $12 each and came in black or silver. Well I can't tell you how hard it was to find the right sized cups to fit in those racks!! I didn't want to spend a fortune, I didn't want glass, what was I going to do? Then it hit me…Pringles cans!!
I'm so happy with the way this turned out. The Pringles cans were perfect, because I could cut them down to any size with my xacto knife, then I just cut an angle out of the top of each one so I could reach in & grab my colors easily. I covered each can with SU! Flirtatious Specialty dsp. The 3 racks were just the right size, but if when I have too many markers, I can just add another rack 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
