Embarassing but true

Why are you embarassed? The paper bag storage system has a certain understated charm. It makes a bold statement without being too flamboyant.

Where did you get those bags? Ralphs?

If you do, would you mind posting how much you pay for materials? I could use some extra storage space myself, but moneys a bit tight. This looks like it might be a pretty cheap solution.

Here is what I did:

I have three of these shelves, except in chrome:


I then assembled smaller shelves in an "h' formation using 3/4"x4" oak that runs the length of the shelf. One row of DVDs fits on the "top" of the H, and the other infront on the actual metal shelf. I have 3 units, and currently there are six shelves of 9 filled with DVDs, 4 filled with books and 2 with collectibles (but they will change to DVDs very soon.

These shelves are heavy duty and are on wheels and are very easy to move around. I will post some pics when I get home...

Go to Ikea, buy the Gorm rack. The 30 cm deep shelves will hold 2 rows of dvds, about 100 per shelf or so, and 7 shelves can be fitted. Add in some back and side pieces of 1 x 4 and your done. If you have a few tools (drill, screwdriver, ratchet, sand paper), cost is around 50 bucks or less. Will be a bit of labor to sand it down and drill a few holes but it's cheap, holds a ton, can be painted, can be expanded, and can be taken apart easily if moving. You could always build from scratch with pine 1 x 4 as well. Home Depot could cut everything to size.

I just got all the material and started building it last night!!! Total was about $52 before tax! I also bought some spraypaint that bonds to PVC, those were about $4 a can. Should turn out pretty nice. I'll post pics when I get it done!

Here's a thread currently taking place at Home Theater Spot.

I'm too lazy to type it again, so here's what I posted there for my solution:

I had a "half wall" with a shelf on top of it, and removed the panelling below the shelf. I actually built a "frame" around the studs with 1x4's. I then drilled holes on the sides and put pegs in them, so that the shelves are adjustable.

Here's a pic . We actually rent, and the landlord is going to paint the whole basement, so eventually, the walls and shelves will be the same color. This pic shows them only primed. Plus there's another 1 1/2 shelves full of DVDs since this was taken...

But I want them all to be consistent and like the look of the ones pictured, so I might just order them online.

Check out the official site (http://www.rubbermaid.com) and they might offer some options or a store locator.
