Necessity is the mother of invention/motivation! I had a problem; too many airbrush paint jars and not enough storage area to effectively use them. I came up with this idea.

I used 4 10’ PVC pipes cut into 3-1/4” and 2-5/8” lengths. I carefully used PVC pipe cement to attached to each other long ways. As you can see it makes a nice design. After all the tubes were cut and cemented together I constructed a simple box to hold the storage units. I used 15 min epoxy to attach the pipes to the box back, seems to be holding the honeycomb in place.

I move around when painting so I wanted to attach to the wall as well as my easel. I used my old reliable cleat attachment, so now I can move my paints with me.

I made extra storage units but probably not enough. Nice little project that works, I can see all my paints and colors at a glance now!

Great idea!

Laziness is what really invents things—we are always looking for an easier; but, still relaible way to do things!
