Each time I went to start or finish a project or even find a pair of scissors it was mass chaos digging through the piles.
Target had the bookshelf on sale for $18, and I grabbed some fabric bins and jars at the dollar store.
The metal silverware lazy susan I found at JoAnn's on clearance, and it works excellently for holding pens, ribbon, and scissors.
Love these little "candy" jars. I used them to sort my ribbon scraps and buttons.
I moved all my paint up higher and out of the reach of children, added the second bar on the ribbon organizer, and hung these little Target dollar bin cans full of misc items.
These things have never had a home and are constantly being tossed around the table. I finally came up with a good storage solution. This way I'll always know where they are. Excellent.
