Today I'm sharing how I store all of my craft tools...
in a craft tower made from old pans.
I had this random pile of pans in storage that I have collected from the thrift stores over the years.
So I put them to use.
I used some table legs, also purchased at the thrift store, but these are similar.
The other supplies I used were these round, wooden plaques, (amazon affiliate links)
Here is how I put it together.
For the wood to wood connections, I used wood glue.
For wood to metal connections, I used e6000.
Then I just sat the tower on top of the lazy susan.
The tower is a bit heavy and a little awkwardly tippy so putting something heavy in the bottom pan, like the metal stamps, really helped to stabilize it.
In the top pan, I put mason jars filled with markers, pens and oft used craft tools.
In the second pan, I put various glues and adhesives.
The bottom pan has random craft supplies like glitter, metal stamps, a tape measure, etc.
In case you couldn't tell, this pic isn't staged at all. :)
This craft tower sits on my desk exactly like this.
I love having all of my supplies close at hand.
Maybe next time you're in the thrift store, you'll look at those junky cake pans and possibly see different ways to use them!
