Rainbow creative station

07 Mar 2024

Let the creative juices flow while still keeping things tidy with this simple organiser.

artists will thank you.  

You will need:


Step one: On two of the wood pieces, measure where the six holes (per piece) should go and mark with pencil. Cut the holes using the spade drill bit down to 50mm deep.

Step two: Sand the wood pieces, including the holes then wipe with a damp cloth. Stain all the wood pieces in Resene Bask. Leave to dry. 

Step three: On one piece with the holes, paint the first six colours of the rainbow in circles on the front side of the piece. We used Resene Get Reddy, Resene Princess, Resene Hi Jinx, Resene Fizz, Resene Tutti Frutti and Resene Snap. On the second piece, repeat with the remaining five colours - we used Resene Dancing Girl, Resene Cotton Wool, Resene Gull Grey, Resene Twizel and Resene Jaguar. We left the last one blank to use to store erasers, pencil sharpeners, etc. 

Step four: Once dry, stack the second piece on to the piece without any holes. Glue together using wood glue. 

Step five: Glue the first piece on to the front of the wood piece without any holes. Leave to dry according to instructions.
