Rollaway Toy Storage Crate

Now that the presents have all been unwrapped are you wondering where you are going to store them all??? Desiree from Camelot Art Creations made this rolling storage bin to corral all the toys that threaten to take over her living area each day. The beauty of this piece is that it allows her children to be accountable for cleaning up themselves since it requires simply throwing the toys into the crate. Desiree built her crate for free using pallet wood, but if building’s not your thing, you could also doctor up an unfinished crate from the craft store.

Simple Toy Box with Safety Lid

diy toy box

With the help of Ana White’s plans, Jaime from That’s My Letter built this simple, modern toy box with inset sides and a personalized lid. And let me just say this baby covers all the bases when it comes to safety with a child safe closure that holds its position and a cut-out in front so no little fingers get pinched!  The lumber and hardware cost less than half of the retail price, making this DIY version a beautiful and budget-friendly option.

Keep Toys Tidy with Cube Bookshelves

With a generously-sized closet and no need for a dresser, Hillary from The Friendly Home had plenty of space for furniture in her daughter’s bedroom. She already had a set of bookcases. Unfortunately, they happened to be “cheap, ugly, and “not very sturdy” bookcases that Hillary was more than eager to replace. She said goodbye to the laminate shelving and built a pair of solid wood cubby shelves following plans from Ana White. Hillary loves how the cube design keeps book standing up and allows for hidden storage so everything looks neat and tidy.

Large Fold-n-Go Wood Cubby

I recently shared the foldable and portable caddy that Michelle from Chalkboard Blue fashioned after Pottery Barn Kids’ numbered wall cubbies. The smaller design was perfect for holding utensils and other fixings for summer barbeques. Well, that’s not all, Folks!  Michelle also created a larger version of her fold-n-go wooden tote that sports a handle, hinges, and a latch just like its little brother. Michelle says, “I love how this tote can be folded up and used to transport items or stretched out along a wall or closed up again for storage!”

Build Your Own Kids Armoire

Here’s the latest DIY furniture addition to her daughter’s big girl room from Whitney at Shanty 2 Chic. Whitney followed plans from Ana White to construct this gorgeous armoire that is jam packed with storage. The inside has both shelves and drawers so there’s plenty of room for clothes, toys, and even a television. My favorite part is that you can simply shut the doors to hide away any mess. That’s my favorite way to clean {wink}!

Rolling Storage Crate

If you’ve got kids, you know that toy storage is a must. And, if you’re like me, you know it’s nice if that toy storage is cute to boot {wink}! Meaghan from 2sisters2cities gave an unfinished craft store crate a designer look with some stain, casters, and a stencil. Using a ready-made crate is a great option if you want to save money with DIY but skip the power tools.
