DIY Undershelf/Cupboard Storage

I've been seeing a very clever idea, but they tend to get expensive! The one pictured below is $17.99 on Amazon:

That seems expensive to me. If I was going to use it in my kitchen or something, I'd probably shop around and buy one. However, I wanted to use it in my laundry room for rags, so not many people were going to see it.

Steps to make one from a box.

I used a Bojangles box, mainly because of its size and it's what I had on hand. I also used two wire hangers, duct tape, wrapping paper, clear tape, and a ribbon.

Step 1:
Step 2 & 3:
Cut the tops off the wire hangers.
I folded the ends of the hanger toward the middle and taped the middle with duct tape, then folded it in half.

Step 4:

Step 5: Decorate the box as you choose. I used wrapping paper, but you can do it however you choose. I forgot to take a pic of this step.

Step 6:


  1. TOO COOL!!!! I need to do this!!!!!! THANKS!!!

  2. It really has made it easy to grab a rag when I need it! I may have to make a couple more for other items.
