Dehydrated Food Storage Wall


Dehydrated Food Storage Wall before

Here's a great starting point for our dehydrated food storage wall!

When it's time to create more storage space for your buckets or bins, and boxes, check out my great wall of storage that started with a blank wall (well, I took some artwork down and moved a chair first!)

When you've found suitable space it's time to either go in person, or online, to source a closet organizer!

If there's truly no room in the house itself, please consider putting your closet organizer out in the garage (preferably an air-conditioned garage if you're that fortunate).

My husband went to the local hardware store and purchased two of the cheapest closet organizers that span 5' to 8' width and two extra 48" wire shelves. Turns out I still need some extra shelf-supporting clips, but they're on their way!





If you don't have such a helpful-hubby (or wife!), then by all means, shop online and have it delivered! See the ClosetMaid system(s) at Amazon.com by clicking on the Amazon ad. It's not very hard to put together these closet systems – get a spirit level and just follow the instructions that are included in the closet shipping boxes. From start to finish, it took about three hours to do the whole job!

Dehydrated Food Storage Wall half way

I do intend to have some drapery on a rod for the dehydrated food storage wall, so that the whole shelving unit can be hidden behind it.

I may have another row of shelves right on top as there's still enough room left on the four uprights to do that but I'm not sure if I'll be able to access it ... but right now I'm worn out, so maybe tomorrow!

I just wanted to share this with you all to give you an idea of what you can do at your home.

Easy Food Dehydrating & Safe Food Storage

Use Some Spare Drapes!

Total cost so far: $100

(NOTE: the price of the closet rack has shot up to around $130 since I got mine but don't let that put you off if you need to buy the organizer; also my $100 cost didn't include the food and buckets!!!) and I was SURE I had some drapes up in the attic ...

Yessss! I found the drapes ...  I used round curtain rings which I sewed to the tops of the curtains.





Storage Wall Is Finished!


Food Wall finally, with curtains!

Well look at that – I finally finished the wall – it only took me around six months to get "a round tuit"!!!

I simply used an old curtain rod and wired it up to the top of the shelving's upright posts (drilled a hole in the tops first for the wire).

We all agree it certainly looks much better!

And unless you know better, it looks like there's a giant window behind it ... yeah, right! :-)
