I was looking for a creative, accessible, and cheap way to organize Nate's art supplies. My parents got him a table and chairs for Christmas and I wanted something to sit on the table to hold his crayons, markets, stamps, and chalk, so that he could create when ever the mood took hold.
I'm sure there is something I could have purchased, but I happened to have a Longaberger basket divided protector hanging around. It was sturdy, had little divided sections for all the different art supplies, it was clear, so Nate could see what he had to work with, and it was free. So I put it to work. I filled it up with his art supplies and sat it in the middle of his table where it has been performing its duties beautifully ever since.
