So many people want to know how I store my DecoArt Paints (their 2 fl. oz bottles fit).  I shared HERE in May 2014 and thought I would up-date this in my Studio Remodel.


I used 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/Lowe’s for about $2.50-$3.00 for a 4′ section and installed them into the studs with screws approximately 5″ between the shelves.  There is a natural lip on them to keep your items secure.

Here is the installation in my New Studio. A HUGE Thank You to Mary who helped me get those up!!  I have yet to fill all the shelves but want you to get an idea.  I spray painted all mine white.  Thanks to my daughter for putting all the paints up (she knows her Mom’s OCD all too well and did a great job!)….


Chicks with power tools got it going on!

Stepping onto a brand new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining stuck in a situation which is no longer exists, or never did.”
