How to organize your acrylic paints

Do it just like they do at the art store! This is an easy way to organize and store your paints so that they don't take up a lot of space. (Great for artists living in a small space!)


you'll need :

a peg board

peg board rods, hooks, etc.

binder clips


(you can find your pegboard and accessories at most hardware store.)


this is really simple and easy. just put your peg board up and put all your rods & hooks where you want them on the board. then take your binder clips and clamp your paint. you should be able to hang 3-5 on each rod depending on the size of the paint.


I also had an old shower caddy laying around so I hung that up there too. This way I can store bottles too! The little things holding my brushes at the bottom are pencil holders that are made to go on peg boards. I love them!
