I've recently had to decrease my office/hobby room space by half to make room for a nursery. As such, I've had to find ways to get everything into the smaller space which has resulted in some interesting challenges. Previously for paint storage I had a large plastic case for the small Testors jars and an old DVD rack for the spray cans. With the new space arrangement I didn't have the desk space for the small jars and not a lot of real estate to have the DVD rack. So, I built this little cabinet that slides between my desk and the wall. The two bottom drawers are just tall enough for the larger paint cans (ie Krylon) and the top, smaller drawers are big enough to hold the smaller paint cans (ie Testors One-Shot) as well as my Testors jars. This has the added bonus of giving me a bit more space to work on. These pictures were taken in my dad's garage right after I finished building this with my phone so they're a little fuzzy. I'm still trying to find my proper camera so I can show before/progress/after pictures of the rooms.

The cabinet is constructed mostly with 5/8" white melamine board with the drawers themselves being solid wood drawers from a kitchen cabinet cut down to size. I'm not the best carpenter, go easy on me! :unsure:

Maybe not, but that looks a heck of a lot better than if I had tried to build it! :lol:
