I will readily admit that my love of embellishments and office supplies are only surpassed by my love for organization! That doesn't mean I'm always organized ... just that I'm always organizing! Often this means that a storage solution I set up is only temporary, as I will find a better solution down the road. It was a vintage find at a local antique store that finally helped me to finalize my embellishment storage.
Here is the final form of storage for (most) of my embellishments:
This fabulous chest has 121 drawers, approximately 3 x 4 x 6 inches in size. And, making it even better, the top surface is the perfect depth for our Stack & Store Caddies to hold smaller items. I have 6 of them already with room for 1 or 2 more.
Here is a photo of this piece as I found it. I actually walked away at first, but hurried back before I even made it out of the store.
It has obviously received a new paint job (leaving the drawers themselves untouched), and I added 121 (make that 119 - two are still missing) little drawer label holders. That was a labor of love for certain. It took ages to find reasonably priced label holders, and then I had a devil of a time finding the right size screws. Then, once the supplies were found, I had to use a nail to 'pre-drill' each hole and hand drill each screw as only my glasses repair kit screw driver would fit the necessary screws. Countless hours were spent on this job, but the results are well worth it!
Here are a few photos of the types of items stored in these drawers:
Do you have small embellishments that need storage? What solutions have you found that work for you? Do you have room for the Stack & Store Caddies? Or perhaps you have shallow drawer space in which you could place Stampin' Store Containers (labeled and on their sides, with dividers to keep them from rolling around). If you would like to discuss a storage option with me, let me know - I've tried a lot of methods over the years, maybe I can help!
Happy Crafting and Organizing,
