Keep it together

Handy white crocks from IKEA, perfect for most things. . .

When it comes to organizing, I really believe in using what you have to keep your items together. Sometimes, however, what you have doesn’t work for your desired purpose. I use these white crocks for everything, but they weren’t cutting it for holding my heavier upholstery tools.

Fortunately for me, my husband is both handy and handsome, and he created this divider box so I can keep my tack hammer, webbing stretcher and mallet all in the same place. If your husband is more handsome than handy, you can find similar divided organizers almost anywhere-keep an eye out for utensil baskets or vintage milk bottle boxes in thrift and antique stores.
