Hanging shelves for storing craft bits?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am trying to give things a home! at the moment all my craft bits are shoved underneath my daughters cot (in our bedroom). I have an armchair near the bed and was wondering it I could have one of these haning above it and dropping down behind for my craft things? It is meant for wardrobes but i dont see why i cant hang it from a wall just put some nails through the back ofr something.

what does everyone think? would it look messy ?
any other ideas how to use the space behind the chair (it sits on a corner at an angle so room behind)
I am new to the organizing world

I can not see how you would attach it to the wall. The tabs for threading the rail through are in the middle, so half of each shelf sits behind the rail.

l also don't find them that sturdy. We have one in DD's wardrobe and I find it quite tricky getting folded clothes in and out.

I would either stack plastic boxes or look for a tall narrow shelf to stand on the floor. I've seen some corner units to go in bathrooms which might work.

What kind of craft bits are you needing to store, that might give me more ideas.

I agree that these shelves tend to lean forward or backward, so the stuff might fall out of them and I don't know how you would attach them.

What about some pretty "hat boxes" or storage boxes stacked up behind the chair from big to small?

How about the plastic drawer towers on wheels. I don't know if you get them in the UK (I'm sure you must) but here they are made by companies like Rubbermaid and Gracious Home. You get a set of drawers on optional casters. The drawers keep everything clean, and they are transparent so you can see in easily, and the casters mean you can easily roll them out of the space behind the chair for access.
They look something like this http://www.containerstore.com/browse...RODID=10015491
