However I have finished one little task thats been nagging me for a while, a new paint rack.
I lashed out on one of those four level carosels, and I have to say... really not impressed. The 'American craftmanship' the box proudly states equates to wobbly, with plastic trays too big to grip a citadel pot, and too tight to allow Vallejo or Reaper paints to comfortably sit. That, and the thing takes up one hell of a lot of space. I tried to love it... put brushes in the little holders... rebuilt it with different heights...I guess it suits some people, but for me, I just wanted to see everything at once and have my desk space back.
So, one night, armed with nothing but a packing knife, a metal ruler, lollypop sticks, some bostick glue, sticky tape and a bunch of MDF sheets I use to make wargaming scenery, I knocked up the TOWER OF DOOOOM!
Total cost, about ten bucks.
|Its alive. ALIVE!!|
So this is the entire four level carousels contents. As you can see, plenty of room left and I am taking up about an eighth of the space. It holds seventy dropper bottles and slightly less citadel pots. Two of these should do the trick, unless I get seriously addicted to collecting paint. Hmmm....
