cabinets, stairs with flip up steps and very narrow stairs. Each step goes up one at a time for each foot. It is sort of spaced so you are putting one foot per step with a steeper step. Very space-saving.
18 Life-Changing Organizing Ideas for Hard-to-Store Stuff
Basement Junk Storage.Use scrap plywood or oriented strand board to make shelves that fit snugly between the corner studs and support them with 1x1 cleats. These corner shelves are perfect for storing smaller items such as glues, oils, waxes and polishes, which get lost on larger shelves.
DIY: "The best loft-ladder type that I've built was using two 2x8 stringers & premade 5/4x14 bullnosed stair treads you can get at Lowe's/HomeDepot. I then used Kreg pocket-screws to fasten it all together. I'd say I have about $65 in material & 1.5 hrs labor."
DIY top loading cat litter boxes! I bought two 18-gallon plastic storage containers with lids (about $7.50 each). I decided I liked the idea of using the lid to trap the spare litter crumbs, so I bought 2 feet of grey stair-tread carpet($4) to adhere to the lid with some carpet adhesive double stick tape. My total material cost for TWO boxes was less than $25 — a fraction of any of my store bought options.
