Rolling Storage Drawers

I’m so excited to team up with a talented group of bloggers to kick off Remodelaholic’s #PlywoodPretty week.  We’re all sharing projects that we’ve made using plywood.  Trust me – you’re going to want to go out and stock up on plywood.

We recently purchased a futon for Connor’s playroom so we had extra room for guests when they come to visit.  We have out of town guests at least once a month so now the playroom can also be used as another guest room.

But, I quickly realized that toys love to hide under there.  It could also be where Connor likes to put them when it’s time to clean his playroom.

Thankfully I was able to solve this problem with these fabulous DIY Storage Drawers.  They slide right under the futon and now store all of Connor’s LEGO’s, board games, and more.  I built them so they covered the entire width and depth of the futon adding lots of additional storage.  And guess what?  No more toys rolling under the futon.

I don’t know about you but there are two things that make me very happy – organizing things and a great DIY project.  There is just something so satisfying about building a project exactly how you pictured it in your mind.  And, now a space that’s usually a mess looks fantastic.

  • Plywood
  • 1 x 4 common board
  • Drill with Phillips drill bit and pilot bit
  • Wood screws
  • 2 cabinet pulls
  • Table saw – optional
  • wood filler
  • sand paper
  • paint and paint brush
  • Swivel Plate Caster Wheels – 4 pack

DIY Storage Drawers Directions


  1. Start by cutting the plywood to the size you want.  I had mine cut 26 x 26.  You can do this yourself with your saw or have Home Depot do it.  I’m all about having them do it for me so it fits in my car.
  2. Next, we need to cut our side boards.  Start by cutting the two opposite ends to the width of the plywood.  Drill pilot holes and attach from underneath using wood screws.
  3. Measure width between two boards.  Cut opposite side boards and attach with wood screws.
  4. Cover screws with wood filler.  Once dry, lightly sand and paint wood drawers.
  5. Attach swivel casters.
