It has been awhile since my last Manage it Monday! Since we moved to a new loft we decided it was also time to change the way we organized our clothes. Our new bedroom is pretty small so we knew we needed something that could hold a lot of clothes, but didn’t take up a lot of space. Here is what we came up with!

We purchased an industrial shelving unit from Home Depot and then found the wood crates on craigslist for five dollars a piece!

I love the look of the wood crates on the industrial shelves. It has a warmth to it while still giving it the “loft” feel that we love.

I worried that I wouldn’t like the open crates, but it has actually been really convenient! Everything is out in the open and it pushes me to be more organized when putting away laundry because it is out for everyone to see!

(And I have my trusty step stool if for any reason I need to get all the way to the top shelf) :)

Has anyone else created an unconventional dresser lately?

  1. Cute idea!!! And I have a bunch of those crates from the City Market — who can beat $2?!?

  2. I need some crates. I mean no room at the moment but I do want some ; ) Cute love the way it looks!

  3. I don’t know about the availability of the wood crates. I think this would work equally well with baskets.

    • Yes those crates were a lucky find! Baskets would be so cute as well! I originally was looking for a wire basket but couldn’t pass up the crate deal!

  4. This is so adorable! I am constantly moving and always looking for new, cheap ways to organize and clothes are always a thing that gets overlooked. This is both cute and totally doable! Thanks for the idea!
    I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    • We have used this for a couple months now and it has been great! Definitely would recommend it to anyone!
