To put an end to bedroom clutter, you need a variety of smart storage solutions. These easy projects help you maximize your space and ensure that your clothing, books and décor all have a spot to call home.
1. Under-the-Bed Repurposed Drawers
Spruce up a worn drawer by adding a colorful new front panel, and then add wheels to create a smart storage container that saves space and makes organizing easy.
Paint in color(s) of your choice
4 rigid casters
*Tip: Measure the front of the drawer, and then take the measurements to your local home improvement store and have the fiberboard cut to size. For a finished look, get it cut 1 inch longer than the drawer on all sides.
- Paint fiberboard, and then let dry completely. Keep a roll of Bounty paper towels handy in case of paint spills. Once dry, attach knobs to the front side
- Turn the drawer over. Use a screwdriver to attach one caster to each corner
- Screw the finished fiberboard to the front of the drawer. For a clean look, screw it on from the inside of the drawer
Tip: If the drawer has a thin bottom, turn it over and use wood glue to secure a piece of 1-inch-wide wood along the width of the drawer. Then attach casters.
Tip: Hang an old drawer on any wall to create a cute shelf in seconds. For extra storage, install pieces of sturdy wood within the drawer to serve as shelves. Or line the back of the drawer with hooks and hang it by the front door to catch keys and knick-knacks.
2. Side “Tables” with a Storage Option
Instead of opting for traditional side tables, use tall, thin bookshelves. This not only adds visual interest to your headboards but also opens up more space for storing and displaying smaller items.
Tip: Fill the space above your headboard and between the side table shelves with a long traditional shelf for even more decorative storage.
