Can we talk for a minute? Do you have the same organizing issues we do? LOTS of crafting supplies and no idea how to organize them? Yep, we hear ya! So let me share a few {like 9} ideas on storing and organizing all that beautiful craft paint you have.

These craft paint storage ideas are not just functional, they are stylish and beautiful too. Whether you have 10 bottles of paint or 100, each of these ideas can be tailored to fit your needs.

So let's take a closer look at each, ok?

Finding Home shares how she stores her craft paint in a vintage toolbox. A great option if you want to keep your paints handy on a table or shelf.

Another cute tabletop option is this fun spice rack paint caddy upcycle by  The Palette Muse. This would be a great option if you have a smaller collection of paint and a dedicated spot for painting.

Now, if you love craft paint and have quite a bit, this door storage shelves idea by  Natalme is awesome! She even color coordinates it. Nice!

Over here at Uncommon Designs, Trish used a divided cube to organize and store her DecoArt craft paints by color. So pretty and useful!

Fun and functional. This wall unit with baskets for the paints by Unskinny Boppy is a great way to get organized and keep everything off the floor too.

Mad in Crafts shares another option to get the paint up and out of the way and it even adds a bit of wall art. These wire shelves are a great idea and economical as well.

Got a cabinet door? Then you can create this brilliant idea by 100 Directions. Such a great idea if you are short on space and all your paint is easy to see and access.

Love collecting and antiquing? Then you just might already have what Clean Mama used to organize her paints. These old drink crates make a great way to separate and organize the paints by color.

Finally, Today's Creative Blog has a whimsical way to store paints with pvc pipe. What a great way to create geometric wall art at the same time.

So there you go! Inspired yet? Let me leave you with my number one reason to get that craft paint saves you money and time! Yep, no more trying to find it or wondering if you have the right color. If it is all in one place and organized, you have more time  for the fun part...creating!

I store paint in clip-top plastic containers marked with the general color of the contents (red, yellow,white,light blue, etc.). They fit well on large bookshelves and make it easier to find the color I need. Although paint display looks beautiful stored on racks, for me, it is impractical as I have too much of it. (sound familiar?)

I was given a sturdy, 4 drawer file cabinet and used it to store paints/supplies. Each drawer holds a color (reds/pinks, blues/violets/greens, white/creams/black yellows/oranges) This way I was able to even view different shades of one color blend. There was even room for those sponge brushes, pens, color pencils, etc.

It seems this blog article is quite old, so it might help to have links to the shelf and door ideas to see if they are still available.
