Step 1: Purchase your product and Organize your tools.
(Obviously you can't complete a project without doing this step)
- 1/2 inch x 8ft x 5 ft sheet of partical board. We didn't want the texture of plywood to come through and wanted a smooth finish so it looked decent after paint.
- 1" x 2" x 8ft Boards(1 to 2) (We had some extra wood laying around so we used that but this is approximately the measurements you could purchase.
- 2" x 2" x 8ft Board (1). (Again we had this on hand but purchased from our local hardware store)
- Handful of 2 to 3 inch screws.
Step 2: Measure Twice, Cut Once.
Obviously every area is going to be different or if you are making a moveable organizer than the size you want to make depends.
We made measurements so that the organizer was built in and kind of blended in with the wall.
First we measured the height. We wanted to be able to fit 3 large laundry baskets in the organizer. You can make adjustments for more or less if you please.
We then measured the width of each basket and then then compensated for the width of the supports that we would slide each basket onto. We didn't make a support for the bottom one because we figured it could just slide and sit on the floor.
We then continued to make the measurements for each support that we used.
Step 3: Put it all together.
We then pieced it all together and made adjustments here and there as needed.
All it needs now is paint and décor. I will post pictures once I get to that point. Hopefully that is soon.
