Thanks so much to all who attended my stream recently when I made the second S T I C K L E S Spinner Storage Unit (SSSU), and a massive THANK YOU to Miss Amelia for stealing the show LOL.
My first SSSU ended up being very shabby chic, frilly and soft colours, more of a show piece than a useable piece. My second (and hopefully final) SSSU came out very plain, and as ArteDar said "a work horse" LOL. Because that's exactly what it looks like - tough and ready to be knocked around - and USED!
Anyway, the SSSU will take you quite a long time to create. It takes approximately 3 hours per unit (there are 4 in total). By the time you cut out all the chipboard (also cutting the angles of the ledges) and gluing it all together. So in total it probably took me (including embellishing the first SSSU) 18 hours. The prep time is just as time-consuming as gluing it all together!
There will be no written instructions for this storage unit, however I do have a document containing the chipboard and cardstock dimensions if you'd like to give this one a go!

Anyway, I think it came out great for my use. I like things to be practical (so don't know where the shabby chic version came from LOL) so I can use most of the items I make - this is why I make so many storage units. I love to craft but cannot stand making things just for the heck of it.
Please let me know by commenting below if you decide to make one of these. I would love to see photos and/or videos!!!
