A while back I posted an article about how Dave turned one of Que Tal‘s hanging lockers into a storage bin area that made far better use of the space for our purposes.
Okay, you can argue that turning a hanging locker into something better isn’t really a galley topic, but my opinion is that any storage improvement has a domino effect through the boat . . . all the way to the galley! It sure did that on Que Tal, where improving my clothing storage meant that I was better able to utilize other lockers for galley stuff instead of having to use the space for off-season clothing.
So I was really thrilled when Karla Vialle sent me this note and photos of the finished locker and their boat, Aria:
A while back you posted an article about turning hanging storage into shelf like tub storage. What a great idea! I have long been frustrated by the miss use of a great space and that wrinkles are so much worse in a small closet! So my wonderful husband just finished adding shelves to my closet and opening up storage possibilities elsewhere. Just wanted to share and thank you!
Dave and I were frankly intimidated by the idea of trying to shelve a hanging locker — no one is ever going to mistake either of us for a carpenter! But after seeing what Karla’s husband did, I think it wouldn’t have been nearly as hard as we imagined. Yeah, I think we could have done it.
Have you done any neat storage transformation projects? I particularly love galley projects, such as Sami’s Can Pantry, but would love to hear about any. If you’re willing to share photos, leave a note in the comments and I’ll write you back with where to send them.
