Creative Button Storage

Buttons!  Any crafter can tell you that they end up with too many buttons.  A jar, a tin, a bowl, there are lots of ways to store your buttons but when you end up needing specific colors it can be time consuming to look through all of your buttons to look for a matching set of blue buttons.
My crafting space doubles as our computer room so I have limited space.  Wall mounted would be best.   I was looking at our spice rack and got an idea...What if I used a spice rack for my buttons?   I found a nice acrylic rack that could be wall mounted.  It came with bottles included which was a big bonus.

I love it.  It doesn't take up any desk space and allows me to use more of my available space for storage.  Buttons are now separated by color and look rather pretty.

Now my buttons are sorted and easy to find when I'm looking for something specific.  To make it even easier to find what I'm looking for I labeled each container.
 


Easy and fun button storage.  I just have to remind myself that I really don't need anymore buttons.

Oh, I don't "need" them.
But I sure as hell want them. :)
