If you are looking for some DIY wire shelving HACKS that are easy and inexpensive, this list Of ideas will REALLY help you To get organized.
Let me just start by saying…I hate wire shelving! Okay, maybe I should say, I used to hate wire shelving.
Small bottles and cans tip over sideways if you don’t put them down in exactly the right place. If you store towels or clothes on them, some bits of fabric are always sticking down through the holes. And those fabric bits become unwanted cat toys (there is nothing more tempting to a cat than being able to pull fabric through a hole with her claws).
So imagine my dismay when I first got the keys to my house and walked from room to room opening the doors, and every single closet had wire shelves! Ack!! Thinking back on it now, I probably should have expected that…since that’s standard for builder-grade houses like mine, but at the time I was totally unprepared.
I’m sure you can guess what the first thing I did to my house was. Replace all of those wire shelves with proper shelving units.
And that created my next problem: I had all of these wire shelves (and there were lots of them!) taking up space in the garage. I don’t like to throw those kinds of things out, so I have been on a mission to find creative ways to repurpose wire shelving.
