sorry for laughing (with you not at you of course).....that just put a picture in my mind of this morning when DH was spraypainting a craft table he made for me (yeah!!)..he was spray painting outside...of course....and a huge gust of wind..oh well you know... spray painting may be fast but has it's drawbacks.
Great job!!! I love organizers and this is great! I love how you have tailored\designed it to fit the boxes. Now you have room for more stamps.lol (Painting the dowels after gluing sounds just like something I'd do.lol)
What a treasure drove you've got!! Can you drill holes in them? Jewelry maybe. Looks like they'd be great for pictures\mosaics. Can't wait to see what you come up with. An absolutely great find. Lovely colors. ()Some of those pieces remind me of zipper pulls (I think they are called))
