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.
