Crate Book Storage for a Playroom

I Heart Organizing

It is a grand thing for kids to have a multitude of books, but not always so grand when it comes to storage. We are always on the lookout for fresh takes on book management. Here is one created for a playroom that is simple to make, inexpensive and looks great filled with a bunch of children's books.

Jen at I Heart Organizing is a whiz at getting things ship shape. She also has a creative eye when it comes to ordinary items, and this book storage project is a great example. Uninspiring craft store crates never looked so purposeful, and they fit in perfectly next to the entertainment center in her playroom.

The process involves painting the crates, cutting them in half and adding some hangers. She then cut an old folder to fit in the bottom so the books would not fall through the slots. Simple, straightforward and satisfying.
