Photo above - empty seed bead vials and containers
I have a collection of Seed Beads, it may not be the biggest collection but it takes up space and has always proved a challenge not only in how to contain those tiny beads but where to store the containers themselves.
Photos above and Below - A box full of empty seed bead containers.
Fortunately I came up with an idea and, even more fortunately, my dearest hubby was the one that made my idea into reality by creating the storage space that I needed. He strongly believes in the saying; "A happy wife makes for a happy life".
This was just a standard drawer that he replaced the glides on making it a full extension drawer. Then he crafted the wooden shelf insert, which is based upon those spice storage inserts that one can purchase for their kitchen drawers.
Photos above and below - Every inch is utilized and I can see at a glance just what I have.
All those empty containers in that box at the top of my blog are from the beads in these photos. I've discovered a lovely plastic jar that has a screw on lid, so the past few days I've been emptying old vials, boxes and other containers (even little baggies) of seed beads and putting them into these wonderful jars. No more spilled beads caused from trying to pull off those annoying snap-on vial tops. Must admit creating all those labels is what took FOREVER !
Now there's only problem, I need another drawer just like this one!
