snord Posted January 14, 2014 Report Share Posted January 14, 2014 Hi all, just thought it was worth sharing. I was hunting for a paint rack to organize my paint desk, and my main goal was to save as much space as I could, so I was looking for a vertical solution. In my research I stumbled on these guys here that seem to have a nice acrylic solution. http://www.back2base-ix.com/index.php?_a=viewProd&productId=364 Problem is it only fits 54 bottles, so I would need 2, and it costs $55 each. Price is not bad considering other solutions that I found, but space was really my main concern. It turns out that my wife wanted to stop by IKEA this last weekend and while following her around I saw this: http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/catalog/products/10177606/ These baskets stack inside each other. I measured the square holes and it turns out the size is perfect for any paint bottle except GW. So I bought 2 baskets for a grand total of $7.50, cut the top of one basked leaving it 2 squares tall, cut the other leaving it 1 square tall, stacked the short inside the taller using a small piece of wire to keep them together and after 15 minutes of work, this is what I got: Simple, but very effective. Stores 141 bottles of paint in a quite compact space. Hope it helps someone out there also looking for a simple solution. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
