Made a Storage/Shelf With Plastic Crates for Daughters Room for $16

I found these small plastic crates at the store Five Below for just $2 a piece.
They connect together with a small peg and hole and a snap on the sides.
To hang, I simply drilled a hole in the bottom of each crate, used an anchor and screw to attach to the wall and Viola! I would also recommend using a large flat metal washer behind the screw, since the plastic can crack, it will also add stability.
The hardest part was getting the stickers off the back. ;)
***For those that have expressed concern about the height of the crates, my house is a ranch and the upstairs ceilings are low. Two walls are slanted, so wall space is limited, I had to be creative. My daughter is almost 8 and is tall, so with the help of a small step stool, she can reach her toys. If your child is smaller, I would recommend hanging these crates lower.

    Storage bins are the easiest to work with especially when you have an empty wall to work as a canvas. I had also thought of the plastic crates cracking when I first saw your post but now I have taken note to fix a washer at the back of the screw.

    I love organization and making things fit in small places! It is so satisfying and having an organized room helps you have an organized mind. I am obsessed with creating new spaces and shelves to have more bedroom storage. http://www.builtins.net.au/
