A friend of mine from High School shared a great project she made. Her name is Sandy Long Moffet and she proves the saying “Necessity is the mother of Invention”
Sandy said “I was looking for a LARGE sturdy clothing sorter that I could also move around on casters. So I bought a wire shelving unit. I cut out the shelving wires on one shelf leaving just the frame and then sewed myself a bag with dividers and used velcro around the top so that I can wash the bag when needed. It is so much sturdier and bigger than the ones you buy in the store and it has storage. One thing that I might have done differently that I could still add on now is at the bottom of each corner have tie on or velcro tabs around the posts so that the bag stays perfectly straight and neat.”
Isn’t this GREAT!! I’ve purchased laundry sorters before and have been frustrated with how flimsy they are. This is an ingenious way to make it yourself and end up with a much better product. Here are a few more details…
“The wheels or castors came separate but were located right next to the wire shelving units that I bought I think at Home Depot or Lowe's. You can buy any size wire shelving unit that you want. I bought one that with castors the height easily passed through a doorway so that I could take it out of my laundry room for cleaning the floors etc. The one I bought had 5 shelves in it. There are a lot of variations in price depending on the size you want.
Home Depot has all sorts of these wire racks, so does Costco. We just used a hammer to the back side of the rack to release it from the frame.”
THANK YOU Sandy for sharing this great project with us. I can’t wait to make one myself!Pin It Now!
