Dokument Hanging Storage Bins

Materials: Dokument Trash Cans, towel hangers, drill, wire nippers
Description: Needing some storage for projects currently in the pipeline, I purchased six Dokument wire mesh trash cans. Since my office/studio is small, I wanted them out of the way. Hence, this project was born.

Using my wire nippers, I snipped a few wires on one side of each bin, making two holes large enough to fit over the towel holders.

Then, I mounted the towel holders on the wall…actually it is a fake door.

The holes in the bins slip right over the towel holders and mount easily on the wall. They are easy to take down and put up, and I can see through them to the project materials.

Once I figured it all out, it didn’t take me much more than an hour to accomplish.

    It’s not the most aesthetically pleasing but practical enough for the garage, basement or a projects room. Good work!

    Great idea. Some people need to see everything inside the bins because they are the visually oriented type.

    IDEA! To the people commenting about the “Dokument’s”. They are the product name, not what is inside the bins.
