Isn't hidden storage the best? You can have the appearance of tidiness while drawers, doors, and boxes hide the clutter that maybe you just haven't had a chance to get to yet.
I'm a big fan of those storage boxes that fit snugly into a bookshelf. We use them to store things that just don't look pretty, like board games, video game controllers, and workout gear. I'm also a fan of reclaimed pallet crafts, so you know I did a double-take for these sweet storage boxes made from old pallets.
The page doesn't provide a tutorial, but building boxes is pretty simple. I am betting that you could just add a side and scale down this raised garden bed tutorial to make your box. If so, here's all you need:
- reclaimed wood pallet
- screws and drill bit for pre-drilling that screw size
- rope or drawer pulls of your choice
To make your box:
1. Measure your space.
2. Use this tutorial to figure out the wood sizes that you'll need, then cut them.
3. Screw them together.
4. Add the hardware. If you want to do rope, just drill two holes, string the rope through, and tie knots on the inside, so they don't pull out.
