Build A Simple Storage Bin

Hi Everyone,

I'm starting to organize my sewing/painting/art supplies storage.  The paints have to be brought in every winter. Don't think 40 below would agree with them
I buy lots of my paints in larger pots and I might as well admit it, lots of paints period,
so large sturdy storage is a must.

This is my craft basket.  
Does anyone remember a weekly show named Aleene's Crafts? 
If you do you're probably as old as I am!

Garage Storage: Look up!

Finding Storage Space In Your Garage


Build a garage, accumulate stuff, park the car outside the garage. 
It's so easy to let that happen, isn't it? Our garage is overflowing, and winter
is not kind to vehicles up here in Alberta. There was valuable real estate going 
to waste up near the ceiling in our garage. I just had to figure out how to build
some shelves that wouldn't interfere with our rolling chrome racks, so I sat down
with my notepad (if I tried the plans in Sketchup, you would likely never see this
post!), and here is what I dreamed up.

Build A Flip Top Bench

Hi Everyone,

  I love a project that looks good, goes together quickly, and solves a storage issue. 
 My son and daughter-in-law have moved in to an older home, and we needed to pull a 
few organizational pieces together as temporary measures. They will be doing major 
renos next year, so it has to be something we can move out of the way and use 
later in another area. This bench is one. It can be used to store anything from 
mittens to magazines, and be used as an entry bench or a coffee table.
