DIY Hanging Diaper Caddy
Storage is massively important in a nursery, so thinking outside the box (or basket) is always a good change up plan.
When I saw these hanging planters at IKEA I knew they would be perfect for…something. I had no idea what but there was no way I was going to continue to live my life without them.
Insert the boy wonder’s nursery. They are the perfect size for baby gear and so so cute.
The original idea was to hang them from the ceiling but it felt a little too swingy. So I grabbed some copper bits from my garage and whipped up the wall bracket.
To make this you’ll need:
(2) 12” pieces of 3/4” Copper pipe **You can buy this precut at Home Depot! If you have some laying around like I did you’ll need a pipe cutter to cut it!
(2) 3/4” Copper Caps
(1) 3/4” Copper Elbow
(2) 3/4” Copper Pipe Straps
Start by cutting your pipe (if you didn’t buy the precut pieces)
Connect both pieces with the 90 degree elbow forming an L shape.
Attach the caps to the ends of the pipe
Use your stud finder to track down the stud in the wall that you need to attach it to. If it were me I would ONLY attach it to a stud, I wouldn’t use drywall anchors because the planters are a little bit heavy, and hello, there’s a baby.
Once every thing is mounted to the wall, fill your planters with the necessities and hang!
This is one of those killer projects that can be done in less than 10 minutes, so if you’ve got a need for a little more space put it at the top of your DIY list!
