Today we have a special treat for you! Tracee Dock recently emailed me (Jen Cameron) about a cool revolving organizational bin she found, then decorated. I asked her if she would be willing to share it with our AJE readers. As you can see, she agreed to. Enjoy!
Last week I met with local Kansas City area bead artists and designers, Tanya Goodwin and Sharyl MacMillian Nelson for brunch to share creations. Then we were off to a crafty girl’s favorite place to shop: Harbor Freight and Tool! I did not get out of there without a couple of purchases AND amongst them a new organizational item to share. Sharyl kindly lent me her 25% off coupon for this nifty organizational spinner
Here’s a picture of the spinning organizer in the box. $19.99 before the coupon.
Here’s the pieces and parts!
To line the trays, I took some 12″ scrap book paper…paper clipped four pieces together and traced the bottom of one of the trays and cut just inside the lines for a perfect fit!
I have to admit I was temped to spray paint it, but there were a lot of black shiny pieces to prep and since I had the paper and it was going in my basement to hold clay cutters I resisted and besides….I was really excited to put it together. I like projects like this!
Next the assembly and yes there were over 70 little nuts and bolts to fasten on the dividers, but it went fast once I got the rhythm and it was a great day to sit on the screen porch with a project.
So here’s the finished project!
I really can’t believe I waited so long to come up with something this good to organize tools I use ALL the time. It holds all my cutters…divided by shape with a couple of sections left to spare.
I can’t help but think I’d like to have another one for my studio upstairs. There are certainly lots of things up there that could use homes too, and I might just pick up a can of turquoise spray paint for the next one. I’ve also got some more great papers I’d love to use for another!
