About Easy DIY Underbed Drawers
We used a bamboo bin to turn into a drawer. There are just a few adjustments we made when we used plastic instead of bamboo. we figured that people are more likely to use plastic bins as they are usually larger and less expensive than bamboo, so here is how you make a plastic underbed drawer!
Plastic bin at least 2 inches shorter than the bottom of your bed frame (I got mine on sale from my favorite store- the Container Store)
1 inch tall casters (I used these)
Short screws (I used 1/2 inch)
Hacksaw or wood saw
Cute fabric scrap
Hot glue gun
So the first thing you want to do is saw the wood shims to the appropriate length. If you dont care about screws sticking up in the bottom of your bin you can skip the wood shims all together. But assuming you dont want screws sticking up in the bottom of your bin, saw the wood shims so they are longer than the length of your casters to give yourself some room.
Next you will want to tape the wood shim into the corner where you intend to place the caster. Dont worry about taping it perfectly, this is just so it wont fall off when you turn the bin upside down
Turn the bin upside down and place the caster where you intend it to be. While holding the wood shim in place, drill the screw through the plastic and wood shim. If you need to, place a washer on the screw. I had to do this because the width of the screw head was smaller than the screw holes in the casters.
Repeat step three for all holes on the caster. Then repeat steps two and three for each corner on the plastic bin.
Turn over, remove masking tape, and admire your awesome new underbed drawer!
