Storage Bin on Wheels

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. 




The plans for this project are here. I used my Kreg Jig to assemble
the entire thing!  I will be building two of these for my sewing room,
along with the matching table. The bins roll right underneath it.
I sanded the cut boards  and rounded all the edges before assembly
Here's the pocket hole placement for the front and back.

These are the bottom section pieces, all drilled and ready to put together. 
  

 


 The boards snug up so well with pocket holes.  No gaps!

For the stain, I used Early American by Minwax, and
Varathane's Diamond Coat in satin to protect the finish. 
Who knew 2x4's could look so good? 

This would make a great-looking table top!

The longest part is waiting for the stain to dry...


All finished!  The casters I took from an old TV stand, and
the handle was about $4 from Lowe's. 
This bin is BIG, so it can hold lots of paint pots!


  I love the rustic look. And the casters make it so easy to move around!
 These could hold fabric, sports equipment, blankets, the kids' toys, all kinds of things!

Have a great day, and happy building!

    1. Thank you Megin! I like to call it my workshop, but it's really me moving the car outside and stealing a corner of our garage! Have a great day!
