Paint Storage

Hi Everyone!

It has been a crazy last couple of weeks here.. Although our upcoming move back across the country is not happening for 3 more months, there is a lot of planning that has been needing to take place and the time to start is now...

We are downsizing our home by moving back, our house in NC has almost 1000 square feet less than this rental house here in Austin. We will be having garage sale to help fund our move and rid us of some clutter in the process, so I have been consumed in the daunting task of deciding what goes and what stays.

One thing I know for sure is that I will not be parting with my paint. No way.

I have found what works best for me, is being able to see my paint, each shade in view.

There are some bigger tubes, that don't easily stand up, that are behind the small containers of paint.

There are also some of my smaller already-stuccoed-but-not-yet-painted vases stuck behind the paint, waiting ever-so-patiently for me to be inspired to paint them.

About once a month or so, I have the girls lay out all of the paint on the floor and sort them by color, and put them back on the shelves. They loooove to do this for me, and I looooove them to do this for me.

But, it doesn't take long for me to jumble them up again, and Allison and Emily will no doubt whine and say "Moooom! You messed it up!" and then they excitedly say, "Can we sort them for you? Please? Please?"
Happy Weekend, Everyone!

I'm sure it is so much easier to find things when they are in order. And you have such great helpers. You are very lucky!
