My colored pencil collection has outgrown its humble home. I knew it would happen. One solitary can that used to hold diced tomatoes simply cannot contain all the colored pencils I want to possess.
To give myself an attractive new way to store my art supplies, I first switched from a can of tomatoes to many cans of cannellini.
I picked up the spinny device, meanwhile, at Goodwill.
From there, it’s really just a matter of stripping and cleaning the cans, then drilling holes to bolt the cans in place.
Now it’s time to pretty up the cans, but that’s where I have to leave for the week. I stayed up very late drawing new “labels,” and this morning, I didn’t love them. If we’re going to log the hours, we want to love the results, right? Next week, I’ll be back to show you the pretty parts, and with any luck, we an all love them together!
