Since picking up a paintbrush last year and learning to paint and draw, I have acquired a nice selection of brushes. Some are great, and some not. I have a few favourites that I like to use. Because I have brushes for different things – like brushes just for watercolours and some just for acrylics, I like to keep them separate. I also like to keep brushes together that I use often.
In my attempts at re-purposing items I have been storing my brushes in jars.
I think one of those is a Branston Pickle jar! Oh, and my daughter gave me the mug that says ‘MUM’! The mug contains brushes that I haven’t used yet or don’t use often. Unfortunately, the mug is a bit short for all of those brushes as it keeps tipping over and the jars are too narrow in the neck to hold much.
I was thinking that I needed something to store my brushes in that were a bit taller, wider, and prettier. This is what I found …
I think they are vases. I really love them as they are pretty and they hold my brushes! I get to have my mug back to drink out of and I can use these glasses for a vase as a table setting as they are not too tall! 🙂 They also cost less than £2 each from the charity shop! How cool is that!
