Paint Brush Organizer from the Thrift Store

I am still on my craft supply organizing kick and thought I would show off my paint brush organizer from the thrift store.  I had a great thrift store score months ago but the inspiration on what to do with it did not hit me until recently.  A letter or desk organizer actually makes a great place to put your paint brushes.

I found this letter organizer at the thrift store for only $2.  It has amazing detail so I had to grab it.  It is actually plastic and just looks like wood.  Faux wood I guess you could say.  I broke out my Americana gloss enamels for this one.  I ended up only using the Primary Yellow.  I gave up on the two tone idea after this picture was taken but did not go back and take another.  Y’all will forgive me right?

I literally just painted many, many coats with my Gloss Enamels and a brush.  The faux wood was so dark that it took a while to get it covered.  You can still see those gorgeous details but I think they look so much better in bright glossy yellow.

I started by organizing buttons in mason jars and now I am organizing paint brushes in a letter organizer.  Do you see a trend?  Y’all stay tuned as I hope to have an organized craft area to show you soon.  For now I will enjoy this bright yellow paint brush organizer all by itself.
