DIY Plastic Bin Redo
Redo Plastic Bin with pegboard
I had two white plastic storage bins from Walmart, that I didn't know what to do with. I did know that I needed a place for all my makeup and hair stuff. I saw a post about redoing the bins and ran with it.
The bins are Sterilite 3 Drawer Cart- White. I attached them with zip-ties in the back
I bought some peg boards sheet from Home Depot and cut them to cover the sides.
After wrapping the sides with the Con-tact Drawer/Shelf Liner, I punched the holes out with a small screwdriver and attached the sides to the bin.
I used zip-ties to attach the peg boards.
For the top I used 1/2 plywood that I had left over. Cut it to size and wrapped that in the Con-tact Drawer/Shelf Liner. I attached it with small screws to the top corners. It was cut to allow for a small overhang to cover the sides. I used 3/4" corner molding. That was attached with nail glue.
I just cut some scrapbook paper down to size and slide them in the front. I attached them with double sided tape. I might laminate them in the future.
For added storage I attached 2 PVC pipes, that I covered in teal duct tape, to the sides with the zip-ties.
Close up of the PVC pipe as holders.
Enjoyed the project?

Karen Ann Schaub on Aug 28, 2017I think you did an excellent job and its a wonderful idea. Couldbe used for arts & crafts, thinking of using it for a sewing table and then keeping my sewing supplies in all the drawers. Thanks for the idea.
