I had so much fun making this wall a reality. I used to keep my yarn in plastic totes stacked a mile high in this office. I was hard for me to find anything and when I wanted to get something out of a tote it just so happened to be on the bottom of the stack. So something had to give. I got the Cubes from Walmart a few months ago in the clearance aisle. They are Mainstays brand and they were $10 for a set of 4. I knew they were not holding heavy college books or taking a beating in my garage so I didn’t mind that they were flimsy and pop together. I had a plan and they fit perfectly! My husband also bought wood and made custom cubbies on the bottom to provide a stable bottom and storage for my shipping supplies! He painted them black to blend in. Him building those was the only way to make them go all the way to the ceiling, and I never turn down extra storage! This project required a lot of planning and time. These cubes are really flimsy but my wonderful husband anchored them to the walls and used zip ties for all the corners. If you are not ready to do that, then I would strongly recommend you use something else because it will fall over and most likely come apart while you are trying to stuff them with yarn. I have complete trust in my husband so I kept the futon under it and plan to sit there while I work. This is also our guest bedroom and this Christmas my brother and sister in law will be sleeping with this above their heads. This will be a dream come true for my sister in law as she was the one who taught me how to knit about 4 yrs ago.
