Quick, Inexpensive Storage in My Craft Room

Back in January and February, I showed you my Craft Space.  I used a huge armoire and it really held a lot.
Well, I'm sure you won't be surprised to know that it sure didn't take long to need a little more space in there!  It seems I have a lot of a) little things, that seem to get lost in a box or a drawer, and b) spray paint cans, which no matter where they are or how neat they are lined up, you knock over one and they all seem to fall.
I found one of these for about $5:
I cut it in between the seams on the bottom to make it fit inside the doors of my craft armoire.  On the right side, I just folded it case I want it bigger later.  My sweet, taller-than-me husband put some screws up at the top of my door to hang it by.
Suddenly, I have a lot of storage for my spray paint cans and lots of little pockets for the little things.  I couldn't get a picture of the other side, but I just screwed the bottom piece that I cut off (about 1/3 of the organizer) to the door on the other side.  Yay!  More storage is always good!  Now, I'm going to go finish filling those pockets!
Happy Monday to you!
