Alright this one is fairly simple!
4 or 6 inch diameter PVC Pipe - I would suggest getting it in at least the 10 ft pipes and then, depending on where you go either have them cut it into 1 1/2 foot lengths or just do it yourself. Note: Depending on what you are trying to store you can increase or decrease the diameter of the pvc pipe. This is focusing on shoes so the 6 works better for my wife. However the 4 works better for our little kids.
Build your base first…for this we took 3 of the 6 inch diameter PVC pipe and put 3 together. Place a line of glue ( I use the Oatey 30863 PVC Heavy Duty Cement, Clear, 8-Ounce or Gorilla Glue) along where the PVC touches in the center. Note: Do this in a well ventilated area. I would think this would be obvious because of the fumes from the glue..but just want to put that out there.
Another suggestion is that, if you are going to stack them as we did, you make each line first….in other words if you are going to do 3 then glue those three together first….then place glue on top center of base and put the three you just glued on top.
Wipe off any excess glue quickly as this sets pretty fast.
Note: I always let it set for about 1 hour to be on the safe side. Also some people use primer..I have found that I do not need to do that for this type of project but if you are a perfectionist you may want to!
Repeat as many times as you want…or do as we did in our sons room and get creative…he now has the PVC surrounding the top of his bed and stores all his stuff there. This is a great space saver!

I’m looking for some way to store my yarn here. Back in FL it was all in boxes all over the house, but it’s brightly colored balls of color… might as well display that, right?
