A Dozen Easy and Quick Storage and Organization Ideas for the Kid’s Room
“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.” ~ Benjamin Franklin
After Christmas and birthday parties it seems like the perfect time to get organized, purge, and make room for new toys. For me, I am ALWAYS looking for ways to reorganize my daughter’s artwork, clothes, toys, and all things that come with kids. Here are a few DIY storage and organization ideas for the kid’s room.
DIY Storage Solutions
Pictured above, I found this bench at a thrift store and made it over with a little paint and added a seat cushion. It is perfect for quiet reading time, plus, the seat is a drawer that holds books. I created a little reading nook in my daughters room and used picture frame shelves to display and organize books as well.
Refinish some wooden crates and add wheels for easy mobility. These can be painted any color to match your child’s decor. Get creative and add a design with stencils.
Don’t throw away drawers from unwanted dressers. Upcycle them into roll away storage for under the kid’s beds by Grillo Designs. Paint the inside and out to add interest and depth.
Does your child have a lot of small dolls and action figures? We have a ton of Shopkins, Toozies, and Calico Critters that are perfect for this one. Organize small items in see-though containers from the dollar bin at retail stores.
A true trash to treasure, I found a plant hanger in the trash and upcycled it into hanging stuffed animal toy storage by cleaning it, painting it, and adding whimsical embellishments.
Cubed storage shelves are versatile and hold a lot of toys. Add a little flare to boring shelves with patterned duct tape. The best part is when you are in the mood to change it, fabric duct tape will peal right off.
Organize on the Wall
Don’t forget to utilize your wall space! Organization on the wall doubles as artwork.
Make these easy artwork display frames and hang your child’s favorite school art projects.
Similar to the artwork display, when your child grows, switch it up a bit. We went from preschool artwork to framed purses and hats to double as wall art. I used the same ones, just repainted them with metallic paint to brighten them up.
I found a broken coat hanger in the clearance section of a retail store and with a little paint and TLC, I have a hanger for coats, backpacks, and hats for my daughter’s room. When she got older, I moved this into her walk in closet for added storage.
If you have a kid in sports, this is a great way to display their medals and achievements. I painted this old sign with chalkboard paint so you can change the word of the day.
Make your own To Do and Memo center by stenciling cork boards together with ribbon. I recycled a food cardboard box to use as a little caddy to hold pens and paper.
Here’s a bonus one! Make this cool rope trash can!
