We came across an old school gym bench at the thrift store and it fitted our wall exactly! We thought it would be cool to get a mid century wall system with that but the prices were extremely high! Besides, most of the colors didn't match that well. So i decided to make one myself. It was a very easy project and took me only half a day. The lowest shelf is a bit deeper as the rest so it could function as a desk/play table for our son!
Step 1: Mounting the Rails and Hooks to the Wall
At first i mounted the rail and the hooks to the wall, then i could see how individual shelves would look and decide how many cabinets i needed. For the shelves i used single pieces of plywood, for the desk part i had to glue two pieces together (it is 3.3 meters wide!). I also glued two pieces of plywood together to get the desk twice as thick as the shelves, that gave it a little more body.
Step 2: Making the Cabinets
Making the cabinets was very easy, it is nothing more than a box with a few hinges, I had all the plywood cut to size at the Home Depot so all i had to do was glue them together. I didn't want any screws to be in sight so i used dowels to put these in place. The hinges are very easy to use, no need for expensive tools, just a screw driver will do!
