DIY organization: all these beads and findings

While I was moving I showed you how I was organizing all my beads and findings, remember?
(it's HERE... in case you missed it!)

Anyway... That was working before, since all these boxes were inside a cabinet. 
A bit of a pain, every time I was looking for something specific, everything was getting out and about.

Well... Now I changed it and it's much MUCH better!
Here it is: my new and improved storage for beads and findings!
Love the fact that looks like a city skyline!



A trip to Leroy Merlin later, (it's like Home depot, with a french name!) and I found some tiny drawers organizers (these are meant for screws, nails and other "men" kind of things) and I ended up coming home with four. (hem...)



Big, pleasant surprise: these are sold as a set, but they are made of 12 single components and can be slide in and out creating a unit with the size you like...
I'm saying goodbye to all these random boxes and give all these pretty beads and findings a new and improved home!

I decided to go 'by color' rather than 'by category': 
before I had semi-precious beads in one box and sequins and beads in the others. 
But I believe that organizing by color will be easier and neater. 



Here how my shelves in the "soon to be ready" Crafty Basement in their "before and after" shot:


Lllllllove it!

    1. Hi Nancy, these are FERVI (http://www.ebay.it/itm/CASSETTA-CASSETTIERA-IN-PLASTICA-PORTA-MINUTERIA-16-CASSETTI-FERVI-Art-C085-16-/330673337911?pt=Utensili_manuali&hash=item4cfdaab637#ht_2738wt_911) and I don't know if the same brand is available in the States, Homedepot has something similar(but I don't know if each any drawer is detachable) (http://www.homedepot.com/Tools-Hardware-Tool-Storage-Organizers/h_d1/N-5yc1vZc28p/R-100023878/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&storeId=10051#.UGlQrrTQ_go) !
