Make Your Own PVC Storage System

Individual storage compartments for sorting everyday objects is always good for workspace organisation. Like a cafeteria tray for your junk drawer or home office, this simple, pre-built storage system is an easy, inexpensive and attractive DIY when you've got some PVC on-hand.

Most types of organisational storage are great for several pieces of the same type of item (think filing cabinet). But this PVC version keeps loose singular items in check and isn't that difficult to make.

This project is as easy as cutting PVC pipe, gluing it together and giving it a coat of paint. Check out home DIY weblog Ohdeedoh for more suggestions on adhesive type and calculating the exact amount of PVC needed for the project.

    Does it have a base, or if you (or an unsuspecting person) lift this to move it, are all your pens/stuff going to go everywhere?

    My 13yo did something like this as a project for school. He used three different diameter tubes cut to different heights and angles. He then glued the pieces together on a 'Lazy Susan' base and used it as a circular desk organiser. Unfortunately he then buried it under all the other junk on his desk. But it was a nice idea!
