Studio Storage Tips Part 1: Paints/Inks/Stamps OH MY!

I get asked a lot how I store many of the items in my studio so I thought I would address some of them here on my blog.  My favorite storage is my mini "shelves" on my wall where I store my favorite DecoArt Paints, Inks and just some of my stamps…..

This is simply t-grid metal 4' strip for an acoustic drop down ceiling that you see in most commercial uses.  I purchased the 4' strips at Home Depot for about $2.50/each and installed them into the studs with screws.  There is a natural lip on them to keep your items secure.

Very low cost and keeps everything right on display at your fingertips (plus it looks pretty).

I will tell you that this storage does go all the way up the wall and I just added the bottom "shelf" this week to house more paints (I guess you could say I am slightly addicted to DecoArt paints).

Stay tuned for more tips from my studio……..please let me know if you have questions on how I store particular items.  Always happy to share!
