It's a bit daunting to look at an empty WorkBox and see all those little holes waiting to be filled with the plastic shelf brackets:
My top tip? Look at the instructions! They will tell you exactly which holes to place the brackets in to properly fit every bin. You can always customize later, but I found it was easiest to follow the directions and go from there.
I had T help me install some of the shelves, especially the ones that I had a hard time reaching (baby belly kept me from getting into the back of the highest spots). The bins were a breeze! Along with the velcro pouches, the bins come flattened in boxes like this:
Putting them together is as simple as opening the bin, slipping the sturdy lined bottom piece in, and popping it onto a shelf. The skinny bins also have a "stabilizer" that goes into the back; just a quick extra step, but it helps them hold more.
I won't lie. It was pretty exhilarating to look at that big WorkBox full of empty bins, just waiting to be filled with crafty goodness. I know I can't be the only one who gets a kick out of empty bins, right? Right?
Here's a very quick video I put together to show you just how easy the shelves and bins are. It was hard to film one-handed, but I wanted to give you a close-up look before the big reveal. (You'll have to click over to the blog to see the video if you're viewing this in a reader or email! I had some trouble with it last night, but hopefully it will work today)
I'm almost finished adding my stuff to the WorkBox...I can't believe it! Stay tuned for a look at how we will use our extra space for a mom and kid play area. And there just might be a fun little Giveaway from my friends at The Original ScrapBox!
What's your favorite part of the organizing process?
(Side note: Please do keep us in your thoughts and prayers today. I have an ultrasound scheduled to take a peek at baby boy's kidneys. Thank you!)
