Ok. If any of y’all are like me…I have gotten to where I keep sooooo much stuff always thinking, “hey, I could use this for …. something….someday”. Before ya know it, you are a hoarder of trash, our garage now looks as though I have a coffee and wine obsession (shhhh). Well while helping my husband clean out the shed and garage of the endless mountain of wood scraps, I decided to put some of these large coffee cans to use…..AT LAST “someday” has finally arrived!!
The great thing is that his shed does not have a finished interior which leaves endless options for storage, especially for the millions of pieces of wood. He has already been able to put that space to use but is for a lot of his larger pieces. Nothing for these smaller cuts of wood.
It’s pretty basic, just had to cut the bottom of the cans off and attach to studs with just screws. And voila, now he won’t have millions of pieces falling over and causing an even bigger mess. Makes me happy on sooo many levels!! We don’t have a lot of room as it is and this mess was beginning to give me anxiety. Finding pieces to use will now become easier and a lot faster!
Something like this could be very helpful for many things!! Plan on attaching more to hold all our rolls of chicken wire, window screen, cage wire! Could also paint them a really pretty color; attach to wall space in a closet or craft/work room to keep rolls of gift wrap or rolls of vinyl (hint hint Renee hehe)!!
