The name of the game in my son's nursery is "storage solutions." Our biggest organization problem right now is his sweet little baby wardrobe. We have little room for a dresser, and the space under the changing table is taken up with diapers, burp cloths, and linens. What we DO have is a very large built-in bookshelf—with more space than we need for all his books and toys. Below, see how I transformed some plain wooden boxes from Ikea into makeshift, attractive "drawers" with handles. Each drawer cost me less than $12 (if you consider that I used leftover paint from the room), is very lightweight, and is much handier than a regular old bin.

With the functional aspect of the project complete, I'm now considering stenciling a design onto them, and polyurethaning them to make them really last. I'm also thinking of lining the bottom of the inside with pretty scrapbook paper, even though you'd never see it! Any thoughts/suggestions?
