Paint brush storage: We love this tip from the summer 2016 issue of DIY magazine – repurpose some shutters to quickly add vertical storage space to your craft room. Use S hooks to hang pencil cups (brocade pencil cup shown) and organize your most used painting brushes. Try the pink Edison pencil cup ($8.00 retail) from Design ideas to add a fun splash of color!
