DIY Storage for Fine Art Paintings

My paintings are everywhere!

I’m retired from the workforce now, and that means I have more time to paint. I get to paint as much as I want, whenever I want. However, now I find myself in a situation where I need more space to store all these paintings until they go to their new homes. I designed a lightweight yet sturdy art storage rack to store my fine art creations to remedy this.

A “Do-It-Yourself” Solution for Storing My Fine Art Creations

Pictured here is the art storage rack. My husband helped me build it.

My DIY storage rack for all the paintings I’m creating. As you can see, I have room to add more.

We used 1/2″ PVC pipe and the appropriate fittings to bring it all together. The overall size is approximately 3ft wide x 3ft tall x 2ft deep. Neither my husband nor I had ever worked with PVC before, so it was a bit of a learning experience for us, though not a difficult one. It wasn’t hard to build; it just took some thought as we were constructing it. The only tool required for this project was a PVC pipe cutter. And once the various pieces were ready, the assembly was quick and easy. I now have a sturdy DIY storage rack that works for my paintings and blank canvases.

What do you think of my solution? I’m satisfied with how the rack turned out. I’m quite confident you could build something similar if you decide to go the same route as me.
