Happy New Year! I’m excited for 2017 and have many projects, recipes, and decorating ideas to share with you this year. Have you made any resolutions for the new year? I did! Just two of them—to improve organization in my life and increase the presence of The Modern Nestling (TMN), my online store of upscale burp cloths for the modern baby and parent! I’m working on my first resolution with a simple and classic revolving storage piece to get my studio and TMN supplies better organized.
I purchased this revolving storage piece at Harbor Freight. Yes, it’s meant to be used in a workshop, but I had other ideas in my mind when I saw it! I plan to use this piece primarily in my studio for shipping labels and fabric samples. It may also make an appearance in the kitchen or on the dining room table when I entertain to hold candies and other bite-size desserts. This storage piece came in a compact box ready to be assembled with all the necessary nuts, bolts, and washers. The only additional tool you may require is a screwdriver, although I just hand-tightened the hardware on mine. The assembly was very easy, it took just over an hour to complete. Just follow the instructions included in the box and your piece will come together beautifully!
I like the two-tone aspect achieved with the black metal trays and dividers against the silver metallic hardware—the nuts and bolts. If you would like a different color for your revolving storage piece, grab a can of spray paint for metal and give it a few light even coats.
I’m well aware that I could’ve purchased a similar piece—fully assembled at a retail store, but I enjoyed the ability to stack the trays in the fashion of my choosing. I hope you get the chance to visit a Harbor Freight near you (bring their 20% coupon with you) and take a look at the revolving storage piece. When you get yours assembled, send me a photo and I will share it with all of my readers!
