Today I am super excited to share an awesome Hanging Storage Shelf with you!
Do you remember at the beginning of this year when I did my Hall Closet Makeover? It has been awesome and I am so glad I have it. Even though it is much more efficient, it is still a small closet, and with 8 people it can get kind of tight, especially in the winter. Which is why (with no mudroom area) I decided I needed a small entry way hanging storage shelf and bench area.
boys room makeover, when I ripped out the closet. I am personal BFF's with the free section. :) For the bins I simply used my scrap wood from previous projects, I am endlessly clawing my way through scraps!
I started building things with free wood because I couldn't afford to buy new wood. In fact I prefer to do it this way, and only buy wood when I have to or need to. I would estimate this shelf would cost around $60 to $70 dollars if you had to buy the wood new, which is still WAY cheaper than PB!
Ryobi Jig Saw to cut out my semi circles. The wood I used for my sides was good wood, but had two coats of paint on it. Ugh! I sanded for a LONG time to get it stain ready.
Kreg K5 Pocket-Hole Jig I drilled lots of pocket holes, for building the shelf.
Since I like the industrial look of metal I added hardware cloth for an open look to the front of the bins, but you could easily do a solid wood front. I have done this method in my How to Extend a Dresser post as well as my Master closet makeover.

I am sharing the FREE building plans for this Hanging Storage Shelf with you over at BuildSomething.com! This is great new source for building plans and an awesome community. You can share you own plans there too! So please head on over and check out my plans, I would really appreciate it! I worked super hard on them so you can build your own!
Thanks for stopping by!
