I have a bit of a button problem.
We talked a little about hoarding on Monday,and I gotta say that buttons have always been a bit of a weakness in that regard.
I find it almost impossible to resist beautiful or unusual buttons, especially vintage ones. All those beautiful carved pieces of bakelite or shimmering glass or tiny pearls, just waiting to be put to good use. Who can pass them up?
The result was a desk drawer brimming with a random assortment of buttons. It was so messy and chaotic I’d often give up looking for a matching set when I needed then and simply… buy more buttons. Argh.
Ikea to the rescue, as usual.
This is a dignitet curtain wire mounted to the wall with 4 sets of riktig curtain clips. We installed it on a low wall in our hallway, not far from the fabric storage. I figured they didn’t need to be front and center in the workspace, since looking for buttons isn’t something I do every day.
I organized them by color. The best part is that I can clip matching buttons together on one clip, so no more searching around looking for matches.
They are super easy to flip through when I need something. I’m thinking about installing a second one for trims.
