Zoo storage for furry friends

Material: Ikea Gorm shelf, 4 elastic bands for fitness

Description: I took down 6 boards that made up the 3 shelves and then I painted the different elements that make up the shelf.

Then I set the top and the bottom shelf. I nailed the 6 boards on the front and back of the shelf (in purple in the picture) to attach the elastic.

I cut 2 of the 4 bands and I fixed them in place with a staple gun.

I kept the width of two other bands that I set on the sides of the shelf.

    Yes, no child needs so many furries … but many of them own them. At least my children :-) ) Good idea

    Very nice use of color. We stuffed them in Trofast drawers and called it bunkbeds. No child needs so many furries but with enough nearby friends and relatives the darn things tend to breed like bunnies.

      We have done the same thing, we call it a “bear hotel” and you’re spot on about them seeming to multiply. I’m very close to just insisting on a ban to any new additions!

    Nice, even I can’t really imagine, why smbody would need so much “furry friends”.

    Booh they looked like in a cage: free the furs !! :-) ))
    I like the colors and the idea. Maybe I would have put some wooden planks on the sides so that furs are more contained but…it’s nice.
