If you enjoy creative storage solutions then making your own DIY Storage Bins can be easier than you think! Learn tips from this list of the best step-by-step tutorials.
DIY storage bins are fun and creative! Below I’ve listed DIY storage ideas that you might already have or you can make in almost no time with little money! I have lots of vintage pieces in my collections and these are some ideas for you to ponder.
HATBOXES are so great for storage and everything looks better in multiples:-)
One of my favorite useful and versatile ways to store items in my home is by having lots and lots of baskets and buckets on hand. Versatility is key when you want to pare down.
This is a carpet bag and I have a bucket inside of it to hold the water and flowers. I also use it for holding throws next to a chair and sometimes for magazine storage as well. Awesome storage bin and happen to love soft baskets like this one.
A vintage olive bucket holding flowers, faux in this case…and I photographed this in the spring. At the moment it’s holding firewood beside the mantel in our bedroom and it sometimes is used as a storage container for papers beside my desk.
You know this DIY FLOWER BUCKET by now and when I don’t have flowers on hand I use it for towel storage by the pool or in the laundry room.
MAKE IT…with my diy found HERE.

I love this – all the DIY storage I could ever want, all in one place! Thanks for making it so easy to find so many great ideas! ?
Lots of great storage tips here Janet. When it comes to storage I try to avoid plastic as much as possible. Snazzed up boxes are ideal and environmentally friendly also using fabrics is a great tip. Personally I like things up and away from the floor. Hanging shoes n boots is perfect. I would love to see your garage storage Janet. All your beautiful Christmas trees and various decor items. A clean n tidy garage does not happen often in the area where I live. Tattle tale sign is the car is parked outside because the inside of the garage is full. Lol. Again I use the walls for all that “stuff”. One can never have too many shelves or hooks!
Thanks for chiming in Linda and Happy New Year!
