Underbed Storage

Submitted by Jewels on Fri, 03/11/2011 - 14:43

This is my second project. I needed to utilize the storage space under one of our twin beds. It's really high off the ground since it's normally the top of a bunkbed. I thought these crates were perfect because not only do they fit well, but we are moving in 5 months and I love that these would look great at the bottom of a closet, under the bed, in the corner of a room, etc. Very versatile. I made these 1/2" shorter so they'd fit under the bed. I didn't need to make any adjustments, other than making the two end pieces just 1/2" shorter in height. The sides are just a little closer together than in Ana's plan. I spent about $70 on all 6 of them. $30 of that was for the wheels.
