Paul Budzik has again outdone himself with a new video showing how, for mere pennies, a drawer can be turned into an organized space for paints of all sizes. (not spray can bombs but bottles & jars)

I just did this to my new little cabinet I got for my hobby desk. Cost of 10' of flashing less than $5 at Home Depot. Used my oscillating cutter to cut into proper lengths. Took about an hour and a half to do and used about 6 feet of flashing.

That is a dang good idea but would need 10 drawers for all the paint I have.

You can get 10 17ml bottles per 10 inch section, actually mine measure 9 7/8". I've got 6 rows in a drawer so 60 bottles per drawer. A little 3m double sided tape secures them to the bottom of the drawer.
