You’ll Never Guess What This Woman did With a K-cup Holder She Bought at a Thrift Shop
You don’t even need to own a Keurig for this brilliant creation.
If you recall, K-cup pods are those little containers people with Keurigs use when brewing coffee.
A lot of times, people who have Keurigs also own a stand like this one that they use to store all the pods instead of putting them in a drawer or pantry.
The stands are really useful, and as it turns out, even so when it comes to things other than coffee!
Cassie from the blog, Kent Heartstrings, figured out how to repurpose the organizer in her craft room for paint storage!
“I found this Keurig carousel at the thrift store for a few bucks and knew I could figure out how to use it for something else,” Cassie wrote on her blog post about the project.
Then, she remembered her large collection of acrylic paints and the idea came to her.
“I desperately needed a way to keep all my acrylic paint organized and yet have them displayed so I could still see them colors easy enough,” Cassie wrote. “After a few adaptations this Keurig carousel was perfect!”
To start the project, the first thing she did was update the look of the metal organizer by spray painting it with a metallic gold.
Even the little change instantly made a big difference in the look of the piece.
After that, the only step left was to store the paint. However, the standard acrylic paint tube size was smaller than a regular k-pod and was slipping right through the openings.
Cassie was able to figure out how to keep the containers in place by feeding a piece of paper around the inside center of the stand.
“I found a thick piece of paper, almost like a cardboard texture, and fed it through, circled it around the middle pole until it was the thickness I needed to fill the gap in order for the acrylic paint containers to stay [sic],” Cassie wrote on her blog post about the project.
The end result is pretty amazing, and it’s a way to organize paints while still having them accessible — minus the clutter!
