But, I was craving for ‘new junk blood’, so on my way back home from an appointment, I swerved into a thrift store parking lot to see if anything spoke to me.
As usual, I was about to exit the doors empty handed, when I walked by a bunch of vintage, clear glass creamers.
So I picked up just the ones I liked, and head out with something new! Finally!
Giddy with my new purchase, they were washed, then set on the window sill.
And there they sat. For a good long week. I just couldn’t come up with a use for them right off the bat.
So today, I picked them up, and carried them into each room.
“What can you do…”
Ending up downstairs in my paint studio, I was at a loss. Sheesh.
But once they were huddled together on my worktable, I noticed their varying heights.
This could be a very handy visual aid of sizing something….
Perfect! In every way! They were about to become screw organizers for my little indoor work station!
So, I needed to make them a home.
Remember my old table top paint studio organizer you saw HERE?
Well, I decided to dedicate it to the screws and drill.
KonMari would not be happy with me. She thinks we should only have ONE place for certain things to avoid overload.
I’d say she’s absolutely right!
But since I build indoors AND out, I’m always carting my tools all over the land, so they’re always in the wrong place right when you need them. I really need two tool stations with a mini one indoors.
“I mean, KonMari, you have no idea how much stuff I have to trip over on the way to the workshop! With a loaded cordless drill in hand, I’m liable to kill myself!”
I obviously have a little tidying themed night reading yet to do…
Anyway, one little pallet plank cut to size sealed the deal for an extra shelf. It was screwed (affiliate link) to the table top from the outside, and all was well.
Remember my rusty tool themed work station? The funnel string dispenser was revitalized once again. This time to stay.
I love the creamers for screws, because you can see what’s inside, and you can bring them with you.
These little vintage glass creamers for organizing screws are just perfect!
