Clever Repurposed Kid’s Storage Solutions
There’s no better time than now to make sure your little ones are organized and clutter free. Here are some of my favorite repurposed kid’s storage solutions to get your kid’s rooms organized.
Upcycle a Drawer
Add casters to old drawers for convenient under the bed storage. This awesome tutorial is by Grillo Designs.
Double Duty Display
Use frames to hang accessories like hats, purses and other items.
Turn a dresser into two night stands
Here’s a fun DIY video by Laci Jane showing you how to make two mirrored night stands out of an old dresser!
Upcycle a Plant Hanger
One of my oldest DIY projects, use a plant hanger for stuffed animal storage. It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do!
Stencil Recycle Bins
Another great project by Grillo Designs, use a recycle bin for toys for an industrial look.
Other Repurposed Kid’s Storage Solution Ideas
- Repurpose an old computer/media cabinet for kid’s toy storage. The depth of these cabinets are perfect and keeps the clutter and toys hidden away. Add storage cubes, baskets, or shelves inside. You can also add a tension rod to hang things for another storage solution. Also consider adding hooks on the inside doors to hang other items or display your child’s artwork as well.
- Repurpose office storage containers for your child’s supplies. An unused letter or mail sorter is the perfect size for lotions, wash clothes, and bath wash. Use a pencil holder for cotton balls or Q-tips. Use bins for diapers or blankets. Add decorative paper or photos to match the nursery decor.
- Repurpose kitchen tools like rolling pins and baking pans to hold jewelry and pictures. Baking pans are magnetic, and perfect for holding artwork or notes. Another option is to paint the baking pans with chalkboard paint. Use S hooks on the rolling pins to hang hats or purses.
- Repurpose a chest of drawers for tools as a side table with extra storage. Metal tool boxes are perfect for a little boys room. Red is a great color too!
