Easy Crate Shelving on a Budget

2 Materials
$50
10 Minutes
Easy

We’re 2 gals who feel like there is no such thing as being too organized. It’s simply not possible. And we truly believe that the best way to be organized & STAY ORGANIZED, is to give everything a designated spot to call “home.” This project can help do just that! The best part about this project is that it will take you less than 5 minutes to create and you only need 2 supplies...crates and binder clips.


You can check out the full step-by-step tutorial in this blog post.

We found a variety of crates and Michaels and scooped them up with a coupon. We then got XL binder clips.

Figure out the exact configuration you want and then use the XL binder clips to secure the crates together. Play around to get the perfect storage unit for your space.

We styled this crate unit for a mudroom, but this shelving unit could work anywhere! We love the idea of using this to corral toys in a playroom!

Finally, you can customize this crate storage to fit the decor of your home. Stain the wood crates, paint them, spray paint the binder clips a fun color…make it reflect your home and your personality!

    Good idea! Ive been trying to think of a way to get shoes off the floor and into their own corralled space.
