Using A Wooden Cigar Box With Compartments To Hold Artist Paint Brushes

Partitioned Wooden Cigar Box Makes Handy Paint Brush Holder In Your Art Studio Or Craft Space

A partitioned cigar box makes a great paint brush holder. I missed this gem yesterday at an art studio tag sale held on the first level of The Farmington Valley Arts Center in Avon, CT. But Lisa Ludwig, my studio neighbor on the second floor grabbed this really cool cigar box and is already making  good use of it.

  1. I LoVe popping in and perusing all the cool vintage and being inspired, so thank you Dianne for posting all the fun.
    This one took me by surprise. I am crazy about this cigar box, it's like none I've ever seen before.
    I'll be keeping my eye out for one of these.
    It is perfect for holding my ceramic tools also!
