Using Cubby Storage In Your BedRoom
I LOVE cubby storage, as most of you know who have followed me for awhile, so I decided to utilize them in our bedroom. I am in the process of slowly making over our bedroom.
We don’t have the finances to go into a beautiful bedroom set (that happens when you have eight kids right? Everything else like college and food come first! lol) so we do the best we can with what we have. I also love Ikea, and I found some tall cubby storage units that we could use to help with our clothes storage.
We were storing our jeans, sweaters and sweatshirts on wire shelves in our closet. I tend to be more practical & functional than decorative, so I didn’t have a problem with open clothes storage in our room.
We have three of these cubby storage units in our rooms. They are five shelves tall, with Dave having two of them and I have one. This one is on the other side of the room from the top picture. I got him two baskets also to help out with socks and T-shirts.
We also got two smaller cubbies that are on either side of our bed. We each have two baskets in them. Yes that is my gun safe if anyone is wondering. You can see my cool pink gun on my pinterest board. (no nasty comments about me having a gun please)
There are plans to paint and also plans to make one of the cool headboards that I found on Evolution of Style blog. Isn’t this awesome? I pinned it on my DIY pinterest board . This is in her little girl’s bedroom. I loved it because it is right inbetween two windows which is the exact set up we have in our bedroom. I am still trying to decide on a paint color (not pink, I love it.. but poor Dave) and think my headboard will be the brown/black to match my Ikea pieces. Thoughts?
