I have a LOT of beads. They are in shoe boxes, storage bins, bags, all kinds of things. I spend more time digging around for beads than I do making anything. I really needed a storage solution that I could just look at and see what I have. I have the "Tiny Container" system which is great, but then I have to keep shuffling one off the there to get to what I need.
This grid rack is a relatively inexpensive solution. It took me all of 5 minutes to attach the feet. I bought a box of 8" grid hooks (qty 96) and I have happily spent the last evening and most of today organizing my beads. I had previously purchased tubes with hanging lids and labeled everything and now I can finally see the majority of what I have at a single glance. I will be eventually moving all the seed beads from the tiny container system and use that for findings, wire guardians, etc plus precious stones.
FYI, I have an awesome craft room that I don't get to use because I care for an elderly mother so I'm using the dining room table which puts me earshot of her. That's why I'm not nearly as organized as I'd like to be. I spend a lot of time running up and down the stairs LOL.
