Pax wardrobe toy storage

Kathryn in Canada found a simple and basic toy storage solution.

She says, “I found a huge stack of Ikea’s Pax wardrobe shelves in the As-is section. At $1 a package and 2 shelves per pack, I ended up buying each package. I think it was 30 or 32 packages in all, which left me with 60-some of these Pax shelves.

I designed a fairly simple shelf unit, and measured it to fit the Gles storage box, at $1.99/bin. It’s fairly simple and works great to store the little toys and books for the kids. Nothing fancy, and it does the job. At a very cheap price too! I think I used about 3-4 boards per shelf, 9 bins per shelf and made 2 in total.
