If the bins begin to fall off the slides, try adding the lids to the bins. The lid helps them keep their shape. I used 3 similar units and put my big board (ironing) on the top. I mixed in several deep bins that hold spray starch and such.


Very clever and useful Nicole!


This looks like a great way to store current works in progress all neat and tidy and at your fingertips. I think it is so wonderful that you spend every weekend with your dad. You will cherish those moments for ever. My dad is 93 and is just now starting to forget things. I don't live close enough to see him all the time, but he is just a phone call away.


Hi Nicole. My darling Dad died aged 82, 4 1/2 years ago, and I miss him every day. My Mum is just adrift without him, and at 85 is now fragile. What a lovely word to describe her precious and uncertain state.
Thank you for your snippets of life with your dad; and I know that you know, every moment shared with him is a gift.


You are so lucky to still have your dad with you. And, he's fortunate to have his caring family to look after him. 'Fragile' is a good word to describe someone at that age. Your IKEA experience is exactly what I've heard...but the end product is worth the time & effort spent! Happy sewing this week!


truly a blessing...also a blessing that he still enjoys reading. he may need iron supplement. that has made a huge difference for me. I would bleed profusely at the slightest cut.

the balance thing is so worrisome. I just don't know that there is anything you can do for that at 96 yrs old. :(

I love the unit and will look for something similar. I know it's difficult sometimes with your dad but you are right- love him lots! We made two cross country trips last December to spend time with my 95 yo mother-in-law in her last days and it was so worth it. She had fallen, and was no longer able to use the phone, but knew we were there.
