Running out storage space in your bedroom? Look under the bed! Old dresser drawers will turn this underutilized space into smart storage. Watch and learn how easy it is.

Boost your bedroom storage by making your own underbed storage. Start with a salvaged dresser drawer. You'll also need tack cloth, drop cloth, a medium paintbrush, primer, paint, paint triangles, pencil, four sets of screws, casters, drill. First, protect your work surface with a drop cloth. Then, clean the door with a tack cloth. [MUSIC] Place the drawer on the triangles. [MUSIC] Next prime the drawer. Inside and out. [MUSIC] Once the drawer is primed paint the inside of the drawer a fun color. [MUSIC] Once the paint is dry paint the outside with gloss paint which is more durable and easier to clean. [MUSIC] Once the paint is dry, turn the drawer upside down. Position the casters and mark the drill holes with a pencil. Drill holes through the four corners, add the casters by drilling screws down through the caster, one at a time. Now you have the extra storage under the bed to stash linens, blankets, and more.
