When you open the Workbox all the way out, there is still empty space on the exterior sides. Way too narrow for the paint tube holder.....but I do have a sewing machine.....
Yep, I cut that thing down to 5 pockets wide and 5 rows. I did give up some storage, but I managed to get 3-5 tubes of paint into each pocket. Note - it's important to store paint tubes like this so that they don't leak out. If you've had that happen once, it's more than enough!
Is that a perfect fit? For the most part, it's completely out of site....yet easy to get to when I need to refill a palette.
I took the seam binding off the part I had cut away and used it to finish off the piece I'm keeping. Hard to tell that it was cut. Gotta love a good seam ripper!
And for now, I'm using command hooks to hold it up. 5# each hook - it stayed overnight so I think it's good. But I'll come up with something a little more permanent down the line. (Time for a run to Home Depot?)
I know that I'm going to be moving. Maybe sooner than I'm ready (ok, are you ever ready to move?) I have my name on a waiting list for an apartment in a 55+ community. A whole block away! It's where mom lived and my youngest sister lives there now. I told them I'd take a studio, but I know I would then move into a 1 bedroom when one came available. I've told myself that ALL my art stuff (excluding sewing) has to fit into this Workbox. When I first said that....I really didn't think I meant hanging from the outside as well. But it works!
Maybe I should come up with a business designing add-ons for the Workbox3.0. This is kind of fun!!! Hmmmm....what can I hang from the other side???
Hope you are having a fun day!
