DIY Paint Storage

My ever-growing craft paint collection was getting out of hand. The basket, boxes and bags were overflowing making it difficult to find the paint that I was searching for. Well they say necessity is the mother of invention right?
I needed something to hold all those paint bottles and be able to see them all at a glance.
I grabbed some wooden crafts boards from the home improvement store, cut them down to the sizes I needed. Then stapled them into a rectangle.
I stapled the rectangle onto a thin piece of scrap plywood cut to fit the outside dimensions of that rectangle.
Then I added the shelves and tilted them at an angle so that the paint bottles would stay put. If you want to make one, please visit my blog for more instructions, tools used, and size of boards to buy.

I made another paint storage shelf that is bigger and also holds stains, spray paint cans, those sample pots of paint! See it on the blog:
