Stamp Bucket::Organization

I don't know about you, but I can never have too many stamps! I heart me some stamps! Unfortunately, I have so many, and not enough places to keep them. I have a few drawers where they are laid out and easily accessible. I also have a neat little stand I found while thrifting. That stand holds my most commonly used stamps, my 'go-to' stamps if you will.

While I was at said thrifting trip I found this hideous orange bucket. Totally ugly. And of course, I forgot to take a before a pic. But the after! Oh this after is so much better.

I repainted the bucket a very pretty blue and stamped the word 'stamps' on the front. So now I have a catch-all for those loose stamps that I use often, but not everyday

I just love reaching into this pretty bucket and pulling out wonderfully fun stamps. I also love the word stamps! I'm also a goofy dork!

Moral of this story? Never leave something at the thrift store just because it is a hideously, gross, ugly, orange thing. Paint does wonders my friends!

And don't forget to stop by and visit me at Layton Family Joy today!

I have my stamps in buckets at present; however, it is difficult to find the stamp I want without emptying the whole bucket. I cannot wait to have drawers to put the stamps into so that they lie flat! No room at present, but soon I will have a craft room and then the drawers will come. Yay!

Oh what a great DIY project. You are one clever and crafty girl.

I just finished a project that took 23 years to complete.
Come take a peek.
