The IKEA Hack: A vertical storage bin for artwork and canvas

A lot of us do more than just one craft, I also paint and do collage and I needed a sturdy storage bin for my canvas, masonite and completed artwork. However, the cost of a ready made storage bin from one of the art supply houses was out of my reach. They can cost in the hundreds, or even thousands of dollars!

Putting my head to the problem while wandering the aisles of IKEA one day, I realized that I could probably just make one myself. After all, I had already built a rack of GORM storage units for the craft/art studio area of my basement.  It's always been one of my life's ambitions to get an original design posted on the IKEA Hackers website, so with this goal to spur me on I created the GORM Vertical Artwork Storage Bin:

The free instructions for making this can be found at: IKEA Hackers: GORM Vertical Artwork Storage Bin.
