I've mentioned Russell & Mackenna a couple times, but never in a post focused on colorful storage; it's time to rectify that, especially since you can choose from 33 paint colors. Update: See the discount coupon, good through February 15, 2010.
Russell & Mackenna also started a company called Paint My Furniture. As the web site says: "Rather than sending your old wood furniture to the landfill, we can revive it with a splash of color." For those who aren't do-it-yourselfers, and live near in or near Maryland, this might be a nice option.
