Happy Saturday! If you’re new around here, every Saturday we share a new DIY video over on our YouTube channel (if you haven’t already, we’d love to have you subscribe to be the first to see our new content each week!) Today, we’re walking you through LIVE building a really simple, really versatile version of our popular rustic wall bins.
How to Build an Easy Wooden Wall Bin

We built this wall bin from reclaimed pallet wood, and simplified it even more than the original to make it a quick and easy beginner build – no angled cuts, just straight cuts. You could easily build this yourself without ANY power tools — an inexpensive miter box and saw and a hammer and nails is all you really need. And on top of seeing how quick and easy it is to build this with just a hammer and nails, you get to see how our dynamic Remodelaholic duo *really* works together 😉
This simplified version features all straight cuts, which makes the building even easier and actually makes the storage even more versatile — just around our house, we tried out these wood bins with plants in our kitchen window;
paint, glue, and supplies in the garage; and in the bathroom for towels, toilet paper, and toiletries like lotion and hairspray.
You can use a nicer grade of wood and stain it for a classy department store style (and wouldn’t these labels holders be fun to add!) or stick with a less expensive board and paint or stain it to match your decor. So versatile to fit wherever you need a bit of added storage space — in an entryway, kids room, craft room or office, even in a closet!
We’d love to hear where you’ll be using these wall bins — and let us know what else you’d love to see us build!
Don’t forget to check out the original plans for the angled wall bins, too!
