"W" is for Wall Bins

Build: diy wall bins

Back at it again today Ana White and I are sharing another handmade holiday gift build that's great for any age.  Ana has the plans for these perfect sized wall bins sure to be a much appreciated gift for anyone.

We're building our way towards the big day less than 5 weeks away!  Get started now on all your diy gift builds and your friends and family will be thanking you. 

Who needs cute storage?  Everyone!  I built these wall bins using Ana's plans here for two tween nieces but the finish options are endless and they would be great for boys, girls, adults or even in a nursery.

Borrowing from Land of Nod we used their Take Five Wall Bin as inspiration:

Theirs is obviously made from metal, we built our version using wood boards and costs about $25 in supplies.

The backing is inexpensive wrapping paper attached to 1/4" plywood using spray adhesive.
It makes a great contrast to the white bins.

Ana's plans are very easy to follow step-by-step with all the cuts.  You'll need a jigsaw for this build to cut out the stepped side pieces and after that it all comes together quickly.

How to make wall bins:

Follow Ana's plans here for lumber cuts.

Step 1: Cut the sides using a jigsaw.

Step 2: Add the cross supports.
Step 3: Finish nail the front pocket pieces in place.  Then putty, sand & paint.

Step 4: Before attaching the back board I used spray adhesive and wrapping paper to make a decorative background.

Step 5: Find the center of each bin and apply 3" black numbers.
