Sono Tube Storage Bins

Maybe we should be spending more time at Home Depot. If we did we might come up with something clever like these stackable storage bins made from sono tubes (heavy cardboard tubes used for pouring concrete columns). We think this could be a pretty perfect way to wrangle toys and stuffed animals.

Kirsty lives in Melbourne and is the DIY mind behind this sono tube project. She turned three large tubes on their sides and fastened them, along with three small ones, together with nylon webbing and velcro. The cost? About $6 Australian – excellent! Here in the States, sono tubing is sold in most home improvement stores like Home Depot or Lowes as well as some large hardware stores. You could use any number of tubes and configure them however you like.
