Like many crafters my tools and art supplies sometimes get unruly and try to take over my work areas. I needed to come up with a workable solution and came up with this

It started out as this.


I purchased this exact one thinking it would help me organize my bills better, but it never quite worked out and then paperless bills came and it became an unruly collector of anything paper. I had contemplated tossing it out but I still love they way it looked, just not they way it worked- so I removed the dividers, which require me to remove some of the molding, I left  a few of the dividers  and then sanded the entire thing and gave it a couple coats of paint

It still wasn't as functional as I wanted it so I made removable inserts to help out using, what else, cardboard from food boxes




I finished the inserts they same way as I finished the art pen case
