I just shared with you yesterday my top 20 projects from 2014, and after the results of the reader survey I posted a few days back I have decided that not only am I going to start doing more of what I LOVE the most, but also what YOU guys want to see more of and that is building plans. But like I said yesterday… building is a little difficult in the winter here because I don’t have a heated workspace, but I will do my best to get done what I can in these frigid temperatures. We had a rather warm December so I was able to get this DIY Crate Storage Unit built : )
I was so excited when Ryobi asked me to join in with this fun campaign for getting organized this year! You all know I am a big fan of Ryobi tools, and this January they have teamed up with Crates and Pallets and a few other bloggers to give you some ideas on getting organized!
I built this little storage unit for my daughters room and all her drawing things. That little girl colors all day long and we are drowning in paper and crayons! So she needed a place to keep it all! I left a little space above the drawers for her to store her papers! She also keeps some in the drawers along with all her other stuff. It’s so cute to watch her organize everything! But I have to say, the best thing about this crate storage unit is that because it’s on wheels when you turn it around… it’s a chalkboard.

The casters and chalkboard are totally optional. You can leave the back open if you prefer and I suggest not using the casters if you will be putting it on carpet, just because it’s taller than it is wide.
And because Ryobi and Crates and Pallets are so generous, they are giving away this Nail Gun and the same pallets I used to create this so you can make you’re very own! : ) All you have to do to enter is sign into your Ryobi Nation Account or create one (it’s totally free).
