So you move into a new place and you're a little short on furniture. Although you can find simple pieces on Craigslist that can make do for temporary times, it's not always in the budget.

Check out this creative solution that will keep your stuff in reach until you find the perfect storage solution, or rather, if you're like me, until you can afford it.

Over at Hometone they've shared an inexpensive way to make some temporary storage. You could easily spray paint them or cover them with paper to give it a more couture look. It will obviously still be a cardboard shelf, but there's something to be said for making do with what you have until you can bring perfect pieces into your life.

Sure, you can leave things packed away in boxes and avoid the whole fiasco, but coming from someone who still has things in boxes from a year ago, the idea is rather tempting just to be able to easily access things until I find my perfect Mid Century shelving.

Check out Hometone for the instructions to make your own, or leave us your opinion on this idea in the comments below.
