I always kept all my art supplies in a drawer under my bed. But I am a bit of a hoarder so recently the drawer became a bit to small. And it was alright for a while but I kept pushing more and more things in that drawer.
So solution to my problem was simpel: A new cabinet for my art supplies.
Luckily my father had a small cabinet with three drawers like this one that would fit most of my supplies. So that was perfect.
When I got the cabinet it was really dusty so I cleaned it really well. I think I needed to clean it three times to get it completly clean.
When that was done I got all my art supplies out of the drawer it was currently in. This gave me a good idea of all the things I had and how I got sort them out.
I knew I wanted to make one drawer for paint and one drawer for supplies like pens, knives, pencils, glue etc. So I put al the thing in those two drawers. When I was reorganizing the old drawer I got the idea to fill the last remaining drawer with my portfolio and craft paper.
After everything was in the right drawer I was not really happy with the way the top drawer was layed out. It still looked really messy. So I got a few cardboard boxes to also organize that a bit beter.
It looks great. Everything is easy to acces so I know all the things that I have. I have no reason to forget things that I have or to be to lazy to do art just beause I am to lazy to get the supplies. It is all organized. Even my parents can find things to borrow again. (I am not sure if that last thing is a good thing.)
