Art Supplies Caddy

While I love having all of my craft supplies hidden behind these amazing cabinets I built, one thing I have noticed is that, for my kids, if the art supplies are out in the open they are more apt to jump in and create. A couple of years ago Julie from Angry Julie Monday made a cute art caddy out of IKEA supplies.  It has been on my to-do list forever but my kids never really had a dedicated art spot until my studio was created.

I did a few things differently.  First, I kept my IKEA Snudda lazy susan au naturale.  Second, instead of drilling the galvanized pots to the bottom of the lazy susan I used really strong magnets from Lowes. The magnets don’t quite touch the bottom of the pots but they are strong enough to hold the pot in place, but not too strong my kids can’t remove it from the base. Third, I had to label mine with washi tape and my PTouch Labeler Smile (<—-It is still half off on Amazon!)
