DIY Marker Storage for under $10. With the introduction of Blendabilities Alcohol Markers, I knew that I needed a handy, inexpensive way to store my markers. The icing on the cake is that my marker storage is stylish too.
I Easily have room for all 48 current Stampin' Write Markers, 42 Blendabilities and the Color Lifter. Plus, it would be super easy to build up for 6 additional cavities.
Here's how we made my Marker Storage for Under $10. First a trip to a Home Improvement or Hardware store was in order. I purchased a 10' section of 1-1/2" PVC or Drain Pipe and a can of PVC Cement. That's it!
Joe cut 5" lengths of drain pipe with his Miter Saw. This pipe was really dirty (it's meant for drains), so it received a thorough washing.
Next, we (we meaning Joe, I watched) clamped together 7 pipes to form the base. The clamps held everything in place for assembly.
Next, Joe Brushed on PVC Cement as he added the second layer of 6 pipes.
We added four layers, but we could have continued building for even more marker storage. If Stampin' Up! adds even more lovely Blendabilities (Oh, the joy of new toys), I will certainly add a few more layers. I love that I can store so many markers in such a small footprint of space.
You may not want to hang out with your new Marker Storage While it is drying. The fumes may make you a little loopy. Trust me, admire it later.
Blendabilities Alcohol Markers Update-Stampin' Up! expects to have enough inventory to meet customer demand at the end of June or early July.
Have a fabulous day,
