Using space under the bed for storage is always useful, especially when it comes to children’s rooms.

Do you struggle with finding space to store all your children’s toys and miscellaneous items? If so, these storage units should definitely be your next DIY project.

Think about making your own rollable storage units, start by gathering a bunch of old baskets you have around the house. Another option is using any old clothing drawers you might have.

The next step is to attach wheels to the bottom of your chosen storage unit. This will make it easy to pull out quickly from under the bed when you need to access that toy bear your child needs before bed. Here’s a simple, step by step guide to follow.

DIY Wall Storage

Adding storage units to walls is a great way to save space and add a fun feel to your child’s room. They are also ideal for storing shoes and books that would normally be left in a mess on the floor.

If you are making the wall shelves from scratch this is probably not an activity to involve the children in.

However, a great idea is to find old crates and wooden boxes to use instead. You can re-paint them and let the children decorate them in any way they desire. Once they’ve finished you can mount the shelves on the walls yourself.

They are functional while adding a splash or colour and charm to your child’s room. An extra bonus is that you will save all that money by not investing in brand new shelving units.


Old wallpaper is a fantastic decorating material to use in children’s rooms. You can use it to decorate wall shelves, old clothing wardrobes or any furniture that needs to be brought back to life.

All that’s needed is old wallpaper, scissors and glue making it a fun and manageable DIY activity to do with your children.

Something I really enjoyed making in craft class at school was woven baskets. We used materials like straw, twigs and any other natural materials we could find.

We typically made this basket around Easter time as it acts as a fun egg holder.

However, to make a woven basket that is perfect year round, here is a wonderful example of a DIY fabric bowl you can make with your children.

Labelling clothing drawers with the days of the week and Lego or toy boxes by colour is a quick and easy way to organise your storage.

Get your kids involved by letting them draw creative labels for all the drawers. Another idea is to cut out fabric letters and get your children to decorate them with glitter. After all, children love to play with a bit of glitter.

Go out and grab some fabric or quilt and get creative with the kids. Let them select the different fabrics and you do the stitching for them. It’s the perfect Sunday afternoon activity!
