Actually only my storage room is yelling at me. But it's January and January is my favorite month for organizing.
It didn't always look this bad, and I have cleaned and organized the room before, you just wouldn't know by looking at it. See the blue bins all the way in the top left? Totally organized, you just can't get to them. What you can't see by looking at the picture, is that one of the bottom blue bins has collapsed from the weight of the upper bins.
What I liked about her garage shelving was that it was made entirely out of 2x4's, so I could fit it into my car easily, and it was listed as going together in about 3 hours. Perfect!
Knowing that I wanted to tackle my storage room and that there was going to be a blizzard I stocked up. Not on the normal toilet paper and milk, but on 24's. I ended up using 10, 2x4's 66 1/2 , 28, 2x4's, 8ft long and a box of screws.
Right now 2x4's at Lowes and Home Depot are running just under $2.50. What that means is that you can get all the lumber you need for 16 feet of floor to ceiling shelving, for under $100.
I measured out and marked my shorter 2x4's. I only have 6 here because my original plan was to only do one set of shelving 8ft long and then reevaluate the plans.
If you've ever visited my site http://scavengerchic.com/, you'll know that whenever and wherever I can use pallet wood I do. It's free, what could be better?
For 16 feet of shelving, I used 5 of these ladders.
Measure your space and figure out how large the bins are that you want to include on your shelving and adjust as necessary.
Not everything that was in the room made it's way back. I did end up with a couple of trash bags of junk and a car full for a quick trip to the dump. The luggage is nested to take up half of its original space.
I'm so excited, I can actually walk into the room without tripping over anything and my house has officially stopped yelling at me.
For more before and after pictures, as well as a few organization tips I hope you get a chance to come and visit. See ya soon. I hope I've inspired ya.
