We’re simple minded. Hmmm. We like simple stuff. Perfect. *This post contains affiliate links. Please read our full disclosure policy HERE.*
And before I show you how to make your own, you may be wondering why you’d want to. So I have two questions for you:
1.) Do you have kids?
2.) Do you live in a small home or in a home where making use of all available space is important?
If you answered yes to either question and especially if you answered yes to BOTH, then this is a great little DIY storage project. Especially if you’ve ever walked into your kiddo’s room and seen something like this…
If you only have a short moment to spare right now, then just watch this one-minute video tutorial. It will show you pretty much all you need to know. And if you have any questions afterward, just scroll on down for the answers.

how to make an easy rolling DIY underbed storage Ikea hack (in 5 minutes…without tools)
Honestly, DIY projects do not get much easier than this one. Ready?
1.) Flip your mesh bin upside down. Place one caster in one corner of your mesh bin.
2.) Place two zip ties into caster in preparation to attach.
Watch the video to see the easiest way to do this, but it’s fairly self-explanatory. With the bin upside-down, weave the zip tie through the bottom of the mesh bin up into the mesh basket, then back down through the mesh basket into the adjacent hole in your caster. Using a second zip tie, repeat this step for the other 2 holes in your caster.
3.) Holding caster in place, flip basket back over. Tighten zip ties.
With your bin right-side up, close the zip ties and tighten.
4.) Repeat steps for remaining 3 casters.
5.) Cut excess nylon and fill bin! You’re done.
It should take NO MORE than 5 minutes, tops. And no power tools required 🙂
I LOVE rolling storage. It’s much easier to use. These won’t scratch up your floors, and they aren’t heavy to lug around because of the wheels. We’ve done a similar project for toy storage in our home…
And they work GREAT. Go hide and seek what’s under those beds, and give that disarray a little DIY organizational piece of your mind.
