Art Station

Up until now, I have had art supplies scattered all over the house.
Paints and brushes were kept in the hall closet, crayons in the kids room, markers and colored pencils at my desk. I decided that I wanted a place where I could keep all of these items in one place that was easy enough for the kids to get to on their own.
Here is what I came up with.

All of the pencils, markers and crayons are kept at the bottom and both girls can easily reach them.
The paint in on the third tier which is high enough that my two year old can not reach them without assistance. (My four year old can reach them but she knows that she must ask before getting them down.)
In the top bin I keep a bunch of clothes pins. I have a wire strung across a wall in the girls room. We use the clothes pins to display their creations up on the wire. It is so easy to change out the artwork and saves space on our refrigerator.
Our art station sits on top of  some sterilite drawers that are full of construction paper, regular computer paper, and lined paper.

I am so happy with this set up. Now the girls are able to color without having to wait for me to get out the supplies and even though the messier supplies (paint and glue) are located in the same area. I don't have to worry about the kids getting into them and making a huge mess.
