I needed some space for LEGO storage but I wanted them accessible as well when I want to use them.
When I came across some MANDAL headboards in the IKEA as-is section, I slowly figured out what to do:
- MANDAL headboards
- GLIS boxes
- Binder clips
Wall mounted LEGO storage:
Using binder clips I could hang GLIS boxes to the MANDAL headboard. You have to detach the hinged covers first, then attach the binder clips to the boxes.
With the binder clips attached to the boxes, you can hang them easily on the headboard.
You can even put the covers back on to keep the dust out while not using the bricks.
