      • Jen - Can you please tell me how you secured wooden divider from Ikea?ReplyCancel

        • susan - Hi Jen,

          We actually used the metal brackets designed for the white wire shelves that people often hang in their garages. We bought ours at Menards but I see them at every hardware store. Also, it’s nice bc they are sold in brown so they matched the wood.ReplyCancel

        • susan - Hi Jen, thanks for following along.

          My husband put them together for me. He gave an explanation of how in one of the comments in this post.
