I have been using plastic coffee and drink mix containers for storing various types of hardware, fasteners, etc. I find them very hand to use both in my shop and to take into the house, outside, and other places for repairs and projects. This is a simple shelf unit I built to store the containers. I used mostly scraps I had (I glued up a bunch of narrow stock left over from previous projects for the shelves). Finish is a milk paint; my shop is in an old barn and I like a combination of old and new for my equipment and cabinets. Thanks for looking!

Great looking storage, and reuse of containers. Nothing worse than digging thru coffee cans.

Country Time powdered lemonade mix? Looks like you use it, too. Crappy stuff, but the containers are hard to beat.

Thanks! An improvement from having these all scattered around . . .

Great storage project. I also like to re-purpose those empty powdered drink containers.

Have your say...
