Visit your nearest big box store for budget-friendly storage ideas

Pro tips:

  • For a cohesive look, choose one colour scheme and stick to it (spray paint all components to match).
  • Do it yourself when you can, but enlist an extra pair of hands when you need it,e.g., installing shelves.
  • Use your imagination—from a gardener’s perspective, a pot lid holder can make a terrific glove rack, and a Lazy Susan a moveable potting surface.
