I'm super excited about this storage project!
It's one of those that I've been meaning to do...
and this is the year for a little more organization.
I had all these cans on the floor under the bottom shelf of our pantry.
I needed the storage space, but as you can see,
cans were spilling out. The space was so deep that it was hard to get to the cans and we lost track of what was there.
I love the look of some wood crates
and knew they would be perfect for storage in that space.
Picked up these beauties.
Because of the depth, I really wanted to add wheels to the crates,
so they could easily be pulled in and out.
Important to measure the height of your space with the height of the crate and added height of wheels to make sure they'll fit!
Bought some short wood screws and casters.
These little wheels will hold up to 50 lbs!
Stained the crates and them let dry over night.
Add the wheels.
Use an electric drill with phillips attachment-so much faster.
Make sure one end of the caster is screwing into the thick side piece of the crate
for a better hold.
I wanted to put cans in a couple of these,
so I nailed another wood slat across the bottom,
just to help hold the added weight.
I stained this piece too.
It doesn't take much to make my day...just a stained wood crate and casters!
Here it is in the pantry.
I'm using this one on the side for storage of garbage bags, paper towels
and other paper goods.
The whole pantry is getting a make over.
Check back for the full reveal!
In the meantime, make your own rollable storage crates!
Let us know how you use them for storage in the comment section.
