My pastel box....

I'm a newbie to pastels and don't have lots of them yet....yet. But what I do have was getting to be a pain to work with having them in several boxes. There are some nice boxes available, but they're not cheap and I'm not ready to buy one just yet. I found a post on Wet Canvas about making my own and today I tried it.

I bought a plastic 3 drawer chest at Hobby Lobby and made 2 of the trays that fit into the drawer.   The dividers are easily adjustable and the boxes are lined with corrugated to collect the dust.

I've got all my pastels in them and will make a couple more trays when I need them.  It's been so much nicer painting today!
