A great compromise of form and function. This Pottery Barn inspired cubby organizer is part of a modular set that can be used in combination with other modular pieces (see image 2), or it can be used alone!


Follow the steps below to complete this project.


Assemble Frame

Join both 25 1/2" and 24" 1x6" boards using wood glue and 2 inch, 16 gauge finishing nails. This will form a 25 1/2" square.


Vertical Divider

Insert remaining 1"x 6"x 24" board centered vertically. Glue and secure using 2" 18 gauge finish nails.


Shelf Insert

Using (2) of the 1"x 6"x 11 3/4" boards and the 1"x 6"x 7 1/2" board, and form a "I". Make sure that the 7 1/2" board is centered on both 11 3/4" boards. Use wood glue and reinforce with 2" 16 gauge finish nails.



Insert the pre-assembled "I" shelf so that the base of the bottom board is 17" from the top of the unit. On the right hand side, insert the remaining 1"x 6"x 11 3/4" board. Position it so that the bottom of the board is 13" from the top of the unit.


Front Rails

Attach the 25 1/2" 1x2" board(s) to the face of the unit using wood glue and 2 inch 16 gauge finishing nails.


Back Support

Attach the remaining 24" 1x2"board using wood glue and 2 inch 16 gauge finishing nails. This is an ideal place to attach the unit to the wall, or you can attach hanging hardware to the back.



Fill all nail holes with wood filler. Sand smooth, then apply desire stain and/or paint.
