Pick up a crate, you're gonna want to copy this mom's clever DIY

Kids may be small, but the messes that come with them aren't. Small toys, stuffed animals, and blocks are just a few things you may trip over upon entering your child's bedroom. Luckily, cleaning up the mess is simple when you have the right supplies.
Purchasing storage tubs, totes, and crates is great, but it may not satisfy your long-term, decorative, or budgetary needs. Take matters into your own hands and clean up the mess with these easy and fun storage DIYs to wrangle your tot's toys.
