As you can see from the photos…I have a lot of paint. It was turning into quite a mess under my workbench and I wasn’t ever able to find anything. Well I couldn’t squeeze an expensive cabinet with sliders into the budget but I also wasn’t willing to wait months until I could….so I built this cabinet completely from scraps around my shop and with a simplistic drawer system that isn’t top of the line, but it still gets the job done. ; )
I built the frame and drawer supports from 3/4” wood, then the drawers themselves from 1/2” wood. I threw in a couple of screws to hang my paint brushes on the side, then some PVC with a piece of pool noodle shoved in the bottom to hold my smaller brushes.
I did spend about $9 for four casters, but with that being the only expense I was really pleased.
