|Thje $40 shelving unit- without the electric blue trim (which I'll get to at some point)|
Made from extra plywood I had laying around, a few pine planks, and cheap batten strips this lil' truck and toy display case I built (it took a grand total of about 90 minutes- $40 in materials) is one example of just how to utilize the wasted space behind the doors in one's home- particularly helpful in small or tiny houses. The shelving here serves as both out of the way storage, and a low key display case of sorts. The shelving was measured to be just under the width of the door's trim, so that the door can still fully swing open to this 10' by 10' shared bedroom. This is one of the space saving tips from my book "Humble Homes, Simple Shacks".
This was built for an upcoming mini video "Tiny House Thrift"- for Tumbleweedhouses.com and blog. I'll also toss it up on www.youtube.com/relaxshacksdotcom
