Clever Craft Storage: 10 Ideas for Using Vintage Crates & Trays

Like many crafters I find myself with a surplus of small items. Whether it's thread, or twine, or more thread, or paint, or even more thread, I seem to have amassed quite a collection of tiny, necessary objects. Lucky for all the crafters out there, vintage crates and drawers are perfect for stowing the little things that accumulate.
