My wife graciously allowed me to redo an area in our basement that was the previous owner's pool room as a gaming/painting area. Finally got the walls reainted from their ugly green, and my cabinets and countertop for my painting station installed. Oh, and TV with Roku installed. Next up is the paint rack for my extensive collection of craft paints.
The painting station:
Reaper paints are in the drawer to my immediate left.
My craft paint collection:
A Wire mesh cube rack from Amazon that I'll be converting to a wall mounted paint rack using 3d printed parts.
My 3d printer churning out some of the standoffs I designed to mount the mesh:
And the first half dozen standoffs printed, and ready for wall mounting tomorrow:
This is what works for me:
You can find these 16qt Sterilite tubs in a variety of places. I just picked up some at CVS for less than $5 each. They hold at least 44 regular sized blisters, more if you are willing to pack them Tetris-like. They are a convenient size, will hold a lot of figures without getting too heavy, and of course they stack.
I use Google docs (free) to create an inventory spreadsheet, which I then print out and tape on top for easy reference.
I'd like to organize my reaper miniatures. Are there any inventory management apps out there?
An app that's able to use the camera to scan bar codes would be a huge time saver.
I've seen one that does this for your DVD collection.
Anything like that available?
Can anyone recommend one?
Hi all! I haven't posted here in a while as I had to take a break from painting to do some remodeling on my house. That was two years ago. Finally able to get back to this hobby I love so I wanted to organize my paint desk some. I designed some paint racks to store my mini paints and figured that someone else might benefit from them as well. I posted them on Thingiverse for all to use. Totally free and open source!!
I am adding to them as people ask for additional brands of paint and other configurations. If anyone prints them and needs some changes or additional options just let me know and I will be happy to see what I can do.
Looking forward to getting involved again in this great community!!

I'm in desperate need of organizing my work area. While cleaning, I found a small stack of foam core sheets. So, I formed a plan to get rid of some foam core sheets, open up some storage, and organize my painting area, all at the same time.
Here's the project, presented wordlessly:
Darn. I've run out of storage space already. I think I'll have to make a second one at least, what with more paint coming in from mail order and Reaper Kickstarters.
Dimensions are 15" wide by 13" deep by 12-1/2" tall with a capacity of 126 bottles.
Total material used for this project: just under 3 standard-sized sheets of foam board.
It would have been 2-1/2 sheets, but on Tuesday the backboard went missing, and I accused the boys of taking it and playing with it and not returning it; on Wednesday I discovered the piece back where it was before after I had cut a replacement, and I accused the boys of returning it secretly to cover their earlier misdemeanor; and on Thursday my wife asked if I had noticed that I had got the foam core piece back, since she had borrowed it as a backdrop for taking eBay sale photos. I formally apologized to the boys for even suspecting them.
