    One option for adding another shelving tier would be to add a shelf above the bottom close hanger rod. If you had available height to bump the top hanger rod up a bit, this might provide room for an additional shelf. That's the nice thing about designs like this, you can tweak them as you go.

    • Nice work! Did you also make the brown pieces on the shelf?
      By RYOBI NATION, on February 12, 2018
      • Thanks, this was a fun project in that we were able to tailor it to her needs. The pieces on the display shelves are musical rain sticks from Madagascar.

      • I am sure it's very practical, too! We all need functional storage. What's next on your to-build list?

    • Nice! I need to build one of these
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on February 12, 2018
      • Thanks, it was very easy build. It wraps around three walls of the room, providing about 30 linear feet of display space.

    • I Like this! Might use this idea to showcase my son's legos.
      By Shrub0, on February 13, 2018

    • Creative use of that space! What's up next on your to-build list?
      By RYOBI NATION, on February 12, 2018
      • Thanks. I've never made cutting boards and am hoping to make a few as gifts for friends. I'm also inspired by all of the creative tables I've seen on Ryobi Nation and would like to make one.
        By grover959, on February 12, 2018
      • Awesome! We will be on the look-out for more projects from you! Happy building!

    Awesome job, I really like the wood tone and color combination. Your work table with tool storage is really cool as well.

    • Wow! You would never know it was even there! Nicely done!
      By RYOBI NATION, on November 16, 2017
      • Thanks. I was inspired by the recent hidden treasure how-to's in Ryobi Nation and am now looking for other areas throughout the house where I can take advantage of hidden storage.
        By grover959, on November 16, 2017

    • Very Cool

      By olivegirl, on November 16, 2017

    • That is amazing!!!!! It is so flush with the rest of the cabinet you can't even tell its there! And it's such a good use of that wasted space! I want to build this is in my house! Thanks for the idea!
      By TARZANTHEJEDI, on November 16, 2017
      • Thanks, I bought my drawer slides in a 12 pack and am looking forward to doing more projects like this.
        By grover959, on February 18, 2018

      By jennifersplace03, on September 25, 2017

    • This is great!
      By dwirving68, on September 25, 2017

    • Excellent work! What paint and process did you use? I always end up with stickiness when I paint surfaces like this.
      By mjjones, on October 7, 2017
      • Thanks. I applied Zinsser 123 stain block / primer to the MDF with a foam roller and once dry, lightly sanded before painting. I then used a general purpose paint (Rustloeum Painters Touch) in gloss. For small projects I've had good success applying paint on MDF projects with a foam roller. For big projects I use an HLVP sprayer, it cuts my painting time in half and provides a crystal clear finish without brush or roller marks. With my particular HVLP sprayer I have to slightly thin latex paint but many of the newer sprayers can spray without thinning. For projects that have a lot of hand contact, I apply a couple thin coats of clear coat (Polycrylic) for additional protection. I really like using an HVLP sprayer to apply Polycrylic because it's super easy to spray and cleanup. I've used the same technique when applying a protective clear coat to kitchen cabinets after painting them and they're held up really well. Good luck on your projects.

    • Simple, yet purposeful! Sleek way to keep the kiddos cool!
      By RYOBI Nation, on August 28, 2017
      • Thanks and it was super inexpensive to build!
        By jennifersplace03, on August 29, 2017

    • I love this idea and would love to make it for our backyard. Is there info somewhere on how you made it?
      By Amoore0206, on October 7, 2017
      • We came up with the design ourselves and determined optimal size as we constructed it to accommodate the canvas cover she had purchased. We determined that buying treated 2x4's and ripping them into 2x2's was cost effective and provided lots of strength without being too heavy. A great place to start is the top of the frame by drilling a hole between the two boards on each side and bolting them together. Having them bolted in place allows you experiment and determine the best angle (pitch). Once we had the angle we wanted we tightened bolt to keep this angle and then repeated the steps for the other side. One thing that helped us was to clamp the boards to together as we mocked up a design. We experimented a bit to confirm the height and overall size and then glued and screwed everything together. The final height allowed 6'6" of clearance in the center. She was able to move it around a few times to determine placement and best shade cover. Once she found the best location we anchored it to the ground by using long tent spikes in each corner. To secure the canvas cover, one side of the structure has eye screws and S hooks, the other side is similar but has a turnbuckle between them that makes it easy to tighten or loosen the canvas. This also makes it easy to remove and store the canvas during the winter. Good luck.

    • Such a great idea to make it re-arrangeable. We're fans of all that green too! ;)
