With three children, my house has been taken over by toys and clutter. In an effort to clean up and make the house more functional and enjoyable, we have been giving away old toys and coming up with processes to help keep our toys in the correct places. Today I am going to show you a VERY simple DIY featuring dollar store bins, some spray paint, and customizable tags. We now keep these bins at the bottom of the stairs and place toys that need to go back up in the playroom (which is upstairs) in each designated bin (one bin for each child). It has really helped my children understand that they need to be responsible for the toys they bring from/back to the playroom.
I love that this project only cost me about $2.00 per bin to make, and it is completely customizable. However, I would stick with a metallic spray paint so you get the higher end look of metal even though the bin is plastic.
I hope you enjoy making your own metallic organization bins using old plastic bins or dollar store bins.
