scrapbook album storage wall cubby

About This Project

I needed something to hang above my scrapbook table to hold alot of heavy albums and supplies.  I got instruction from Ana's  General Store Cubbies plan but I modified it to 48" long since the boards were already 48" long.  I went with 30" tall so it would hold the 12"x12" format scrapbooks comfortably.  I hadn't bought my pocket jig at this point yet so I just used glue and screws stratigically so they are mostly hidden.  I already had some trim so I threw some of that on there to cover a couple flaws. 

I then made the bulletin board hanging below it.  It is a ceiling tile cut in half and painted the wall color.  I used the miter saw (yikes!) and even made some awesome 45 degree joints for the frame!  Before I added the frame, I fastened some ribbons criss-crossed to tuck things behind.  This picture doesn't show the final addition: some undercabinet lighting. 

Now I just need to build a new TABLE to go under it!

Estimated Cost: 
about $25
Estimated Time Investment: 
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Required Skill Level: 
Beginner
Type of Wood: 
pine: three 1x12x4' (is was cheaper to buy 2 four footers than 1 eight footer) one 1x12x6' and then some scrap 1x4's and trim. also used a couple 1x2's for hanging support underneath
Finish Used: 
several coats white paint -behr interior semi-gloss I already had.

What did you use to hang it

What did you use to hang it on the wall? Did you nail on those picture frame mounts, or how did you do it?
