I have a 2-drawer unit from a vintage sewing machine, which I found at the flea market. Those two drawers sit on my sewing table and hold all my thread spools. It seemed a good idea, but over time the threads have mingled and have become a bit of a jumbled mess...
painted it Krylon 'Celery',
and hung it next to the sewing table.No more digging. And I can actually see at a glance what colors I do or don't have.
I feel very organized now.
