DIY Tape Storage Shelf
In my craft room I have been taking the time to research for each need and want I place in the craft room, I need something to store my tapes on.
Mr. Tip has all of his tapes up on the peg board on a long arm piece. Looks nice and tidy but a pain when you try to grab what you need, they all fall off the arm unless you want the first roll of tape.
I didn’t want that for my craft room so I searched for a better solution. This is what I came up with, I l♥ve my solution!
To see all of my progress in the craft room you can review here → CRAFT ROOM PROJECT
- two pieces of scrap wood 5″ x 8″
- a piece of wood trim size 2″ x 24″
- three 24″ dowel rods
- drill and drill bit the size of your dowel rod
- wood glue
- nail gun
- Taking the two pieces of 5″ x 8″ of wood and cut one of the sides to form a slant. If you need the measurements I used click here → PATTERN
- Drill three holes half way through your board with a drill bit the size of your dowel rod.
Placement of the holes
- measure ½ inch up from the bottom corner on the straight side
- measure ½ inch up from the bottom center
- 2 inches up from the front bottom corner on the slant side.
- Add wood glue inside of all 3 of the drilled holes.
- Tap all three of the dowel rods inside the drilled holes.
- Do the same thing with the other side panel.
Add a back brace to the back of the shelf. I am using a piece of trim left over from my storage unit. I cut the trim to 24 inches. Using wood glue and a nail gun to secure the side panel to the back brace.
Secure the rods to the side panels with the nail gun.
It works perfect! Creating a little curve to the front dowel rod holds the tape inside. Pretty cool huh?
- Paint your shelf. You can stand it or add wall hooks to hang on the wall like I did.
I added a hook to one side of my shelf to store my paint can openers. I could never find them before and ended up using a screwdriver to open my can of paint.
I am going to be so happy when working in my craft room, it will be so easy to grab what I need when working on a project.
