You've heard me say it before...I'M A CRAFT HOARDER!!! But, I am an ORGANIZED craft hoarder!!! And, I LOVE it when there are new craft storage goodies on the market, and Tim Holtz has some great new ones through his Idea-ology line...The Industrial Storage Cart and the Supply Spinner!
Speaking of traveling...I plan to take my storage cart on the road with me to hold all my demo loot. Not only do my seven drawers need to be secure while I'm on the go (Just like the locking wheels.), I am also a freakishly strong woman, and have the tendency to really pull on thing...like drawers. So I came up with a way to secure my drawers from coming out of the cart when I slam on the brakes, and when I use my muscles to open the drawers! Here's a new use for Tim's Elastic Bands!!!
I affixed a band to the end (About three inches away from the back.) of each drawer around the bars they slide into. The drawers still open smooth as butter, but now cannot come off the bars and onto the floor!!! The pack of Elastic Bands has 15 in them, and you only need 14. Will all of you need them? NO! But if you travel a lot and are really strong and man handle things, then this is a good solution for you! Plus, it doesn't look bad at all.
|Of course I had to label the seven drawers! I used Tag Labels and Long Fasteners and added them to each drawer. It looks fabulous! The possibilities are endless for making the cart all yours!|
In case you are wondering, the drawers are big enough to hold 12x12 paper stacks, and are three inches deep, so you can get a lot of loot in all seven of them!
Now I'm off to reorganize my crafty cave, as you saw from the photos that it needs it...don't judge!!! Have a happy day!!!Supplies:
I hope your hands get creatively dirty soon!
