Acrylic Paint Organization

I’ve spent the last few weeks trying to come up with a plan to reorganize certain parts of my apartment. I have been living there for a few years and kinda dropped the ball on some projects that I didn’t finish when I first moved in. I started off with my art room/office.

I tackled the closet first to see what art supplies I had, and organized everything by adding in a metal shelf. I also spray painted everything gold to match the decor with the rest of the house.

When cleaning, I realized that I had QUITE the extensive collection of small acrylic paints from over the years. When it came to my acrylic paint collection, I needed to come up with a solution to find colors quickly. I ordered these plastic baskets from Amazon and spray painted them gold. I used Rustoleum’s Metallic Gold which I ordered from Target.

While the baskets were drying, I lined the inside of the closet doors with <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="http://&lt;!– wp:paragraph –> <p>While the baskets were drying, I lined the inside of the closet doors with marble Con-Tact paper<a href="https://www.target.com/p/con-tact-18–34–x-20–39–creative-covering-multipurpose-marble-shelf-liner-white/-/A-54345585&quot; target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">https://www.target.com/p/con-tact-18–34–x-20–39–creative-covering-multipurpose-marble-shelf-liner-white/-/A-54345585</a></p&gt; marble Con-Tact paper and marked off every 6 inches to hang the baskets so that the paints were able to fit comfortably.

Once the baskets were ready to hang, I used regular screws (keeping in mind their length so that they did not poke through the door) on either side of basket where their first hole was. I used a level to make sure each basket was hung straight.

Once the first basket was hung, it was easier to match up the sides and screws. Once they were all up I was ready to start adding my paints!

I still need to paint the screws gold so they blend in

I can’t wait to finish the rest of the office! Check my instagram this week for pics of the results!
