So I kind of went all out about three weeks ago and went in on The Rack deal by Back2Base-ix. Some of you might wonder why I spent over $300.00 on a paint organizer but I had some good reasons.
The first being that my original painting station was located in the basement of our 1912 dated home is something that the Blair Witch would have been jealous of and while it would be a great location for filming a B movie horror it’s not the most pleasant place to spend hours painting little toy soldiers.
So I’ve been painting for a couple of months now up in the corner of the main living area where my computer desk is located on a rickety old desk I got from Kijiji for free and a giant coffee table. While it certainly served my purposes it was a bit of an eyesore, space was at a premium and it wasn’t the best for organizing my projects, especially given that it had to share space with my laptop computer and monitor.
So around the time I got my new laptop I also got an L-shaped computer desk with the intent of matching the Rack that I’d ordered.
If you are thinking of organizing your workspace I couldn’t recommend this product more! While the acrylic versions are expensive, they are a very high quality and have just about every option available to you.
I ordered 7 pieces. The original 5 that come in the deal (A straight long section, 2 internal 90 degree corners and 2 external), the upgrade on the straight section to house 2 drawers, a 4 drawer system and a small tool rack.
The part that I was especially impressed with was that you can specify for each modular section what colour you want the base to be, what colour the actual racks will be and what kind of
paints you want them to house (Games Workshop, Vallejo, GW Hex, P3, etc). This was a perfect option for me as I use 4 different lines of paints depending on what kind of effect I want and this system would allow me to house all of my supplies in a neat and orderly manner.
each module can snap together with the next via a rare earth magnet system and once everything is together it looks quite slick indeed! I was even able to organize all of my paints by shade so I didn’t have to go hunting around in paint boxes.
