Hi everybody! Thanks so much for stopping in. I don’t have time to chit chat I have 20 minutes to get this typed up and pulled together before heading out to my in-laws 49th Anniversary Brunch at Cora’s. NOM! NOM!
I have a quick tutorial for you today. Whenever I run out of flat storage space, I start looking for ways to store upwards and invariably, foam board is part of the solution.
For $1.25 and one hour of your time, you can have a quick and easy storage solution. This is completely scalable depending on your needs but for the purpose of this tutorial, I used 2” increments.
- (1) sheet of foam board
- (1) piece of 8 x 8 cardstock
- Hot glue gun
STEP 2: I use a standard dollar store variety utility knife to cut out my pieces.
STEP 3: These pieces will form the steps and vertical risers. The 1/2” markers will act as guides later on during assembly to help you get a square and balanced unit.
STEP 4: I used a couple of bulldog clips to act as a spare pair of hands to hold down my first 2” length of foam board while I glued it to the stringers. After the first one was attached, I took it off and just did free assembly.
Wasn’t that easy? And quick too! Here it is all completed front and back.
And, it’s already found a home on top of my cabinets. Imagine the possibilities!
