Make Desk Organizing Cups with PVC
Here is another super-cute storage idea that can be made for very little money! Though $24.95 for the original isn’t bad, it only comes in three colors. This way if you make your own – for less than $10.00 including paint – you can have whatever color you want to match your decor plus the number of cubbies are entirely up to you!
- PVC pipe – I used 2″, 1-1/2″, 1-1/4″
- Liquid Nails
- Spray Paint
I used a miter saw (or you can use a handsaw and miter box) to cut the pipe in random lengths. I cut a 30 deg. bevel at one end of each pipe.
I used spray paint (Valspar in Gloss Frosty Berry) and painted each piece separately.
Once the pieces were dry, I arranged the pieces in a manner I was happy with – not an easy task – then glued the pieces together with dabs of Liquid Nails.
For the bottom, I put the entire assembly on a piece of cardboard and drew around the outside of the cubbies.
I cut it out with scissors, dabbed Liquid Nails on the bottom of the cubbies, and attached it to the cardboard.
Voila! All done!! Here is another quick and inexpensive project that would make a great gift… I know I keep pushing that but I am a huge crafting procrastinator!! Its my way of reminding myself!
Until next time,
