DIY Under the Bed Storage Crates

This post is brought to you by Life Storage.

Good morning! One of my loves (after all things crafty!) is organization! I just love finding clever, fun & aesthetically pleasing ways to organize all the things. Recently I was over on the Life Storage blog sharing how we added TONS of storage under one of my kiddos’ beds. This is one of those projects that I asked myself why we didn’t do this years ago! It was so easy, looks amazing & these storage crates hold so much stuff! You can get the tutorial right here. Buuuuuut first, stick around for a little bit. I’m sharing some of my favorite organization posts with you, too! Keep reading, if you’re an organization junkie like me. ha!
