Easy DIY Storage Ideas

I have a few crafty friends who could really use a set up like this!

Is it true that junk expands to fill the space available?  Whatever the reason, most of us never seem to have enough.  No, not junk, Silly Sally – space!

Well, these storage ideas can be the answer to your problems. Now given that floor space is at a premium – as well as being a killer on the back, we need to think like a supermarket mogul.  Shelf space, my man – that’s the future!

Here are a few easy DIY storage ideas to get you started

Wicker Baskets

Have you seen these baskets attached to a wall to store household items? Well, you might think it’s unusual but these wicker baskets will definitely add beauty to your empty walls.

All you need to consider is how to secure them to your walls. You can start by drilling holes in your walls. You can use a level bar to make sure that the holes are level – especially if you’re using a rectangular wicker basket.

What are your thoughts on these baskets turned into towel holders – WIN or FAIL?
Wicker Baskets add a rustic look to your walls where you attach them.
PVC Shoe Storage

Too many shoes but don’t have a lot of shoe storage? This storage idea will make you store more shoes because you can extend them as much as you need them to be expanded. You can even arrange them in shapes that you want.

Folding Chairs

This is a great storage idea to create temporary or even permanent closet space. The chair can be folded when not in use. The seats will be great for storing toy baskets while the braces of the stands can be used as shirt hangers.

You can add more chairs if you want to, depending on how wide your wall space is.

This is a great solution to create temporary or even permanent closet space. The bottom rod of the fold away chairs can be used for hanging clothing, and the seat for storage. You can easily fold them away when not in use.
