The supplies in the art room were getting out of hand, so we made a trip to Ikea.  Lucky for me, we took a wrong turn into the kitchen section and discovered these wooden silverware caddies.

I like that two small trays can stack the width of the large tray.  Supplies for a specific project can be grouped and carried to another room.  They would also be perfect for small tools and house projects.  Ikea’s site is notorious for not allowing you to buy directly, so you will need to make a trip.  (You can also find them here, but they are more expensive).  Clear zippered pouches keep small supplies visible but contained.

We keep a square of floral oil cloth under Ada’s easel.  It wipes off with a sponge and the retro patterns are always so cheery.  Now I don’t spend so much of my precious time in the studio cleaning up after the kids.
