The container was so sturdy and stout that it was a shame to throw it out!

And you’re finished! Load it up with brushes, pens, pencils whatever! You now have an almost free organizer!

If vintage is your thing too, you will be happy to hear that Memphis, Tennessee will be having its first barn market in May: The Urban Barn Market. Whether you’re a fellow Memphian or from out of town this is an event that should not to be missed!
