My wife found a similar picture on Pinterest and asked me to build one to help organize our backpacks, school lunch boxes, and gym bags. Pretty simple to make, using cabinet grade plywood with pine face frame. Then finishing it with cabinet paint (gray & white).

My one big mess up is the size. Looking at a picture on Pinterest I did not have the overall dimensions so I sized it according to our house. Next time I’ll do a little more research on the height before starting a project. But the great thing is my wife is happy, now I can go back to making things I want to make.

Love it! I agree, what’s wrong with the size?

Nice job! It looks great for just having a picture to go by and no dimensions.

Nice! Seconding Travis’s question of what’s wrong? My wife has been asking me to build some cubbies similar to this in our garage for a few years, so I’d love to know what you would have done differently a second time around.

Have your say...
