Hope you all had a great weekend. I feel like I've been away for awhile...we've all been busy having so much fun with my sister and nieces. I've been wanting to share this DIY barn project with all of you for some time now. Hopefully it will inspire you to create your own unique storage system.
As my mother unpacked her collection of vintage toys and art materials, she soon found that she was in desperate need of more storage in her barn studio. Creating her own shelving unit with elements she already had was a creative and economical solution. My mother had an old ladder, which she positioned on the diagonal in a corner. We hunted around for left over barn wood and sawed them to size. By sliding them onto the steps and rungs of the ladder, we created a functional pyramid of organization. We added vintage gym locker baskets...wire egg baskets...
a seed sorter with old wooden berry baskets...metal library card catalog drawers...old picnic baskets...and a Balinese stacking lunch pail.
It's fun to have so many interesting places to put everything!
