Scraps & Trash

This isn’t the most beautiful of projects but it’s one I’m pretty proud of for some reason. As I was cleaning out some kitchen drawers I found all these baby food containers that we were saving. I had used a few of them in the garage for this and that already but was struck with the thought that they would be the perfect little parts containers if only they could be organized somehow. A few minutes later I had the plans drawn up and a couple hours later I had this hanging on the wall. Made of scrap plywood & nailed together.

Huh…those were glass jars back when my spawn were that age. You drop these, they don’t shatter into toe-piercing shards. Definitely an improvement. Nice rack.

You can never have to much storage and using scrap makes it that much better.

Neat storage idea!

Great idea! Just think…..the more kids you have, the more storage containers you get!
