Hidden Storage

My favorite kind!
It holds more tennis cans! My
favorite free storage containers.
It's hidden behind my laundry room door.
I had the idea and Larry built it in no-time
 this morning before leaving on a
 business trip. He knew I couldn't wait.
This is better than flowers!
We had enough 3-1/2X1-1/2 wood in the 
garage for this emergency project. 
It just fits in the space behind the door.
It's not been 'detailed' yet with putty and 
paint. I had to test it out and load it up 
with tennis cans. I couldn't wait.
This kind of project can keep me happy
and playing organizing for hours.
I should paint it, but I'm in no hurry.
This works for me!

Cheers!

  13. Please send Larry over here right now; see if he can bring a few tennis cans too. I've never seen this tennis can idea before, I may not be able to sleep tonight. Heading to tennis court trash can tomorrow.

  14. Have you ever wanted to visit Chicago? Cause I'm open to having some help getting organized by you, the Organizing Queen. This is such a great idea for small spaces, like my home. I have nooks like this and never thought of using before. My 1929 Charmer really lacks on closets, so ideas like this will really help me out. Now remember if you ever in Chicago....Thanks for sharing your inspiration at Sunday's Best Party!
