Spare room into a study, craftroom, storeroom, playroom









This spare room had 2 king single beds in it and not much else. Very unused and adding us zero value. SO....... the beds went and Clever Cube from Bunnings came in.  I was like a machine putting 7 clever cube units together in a couple of hours..

2 x 4 by 4's

2 x 2 by 4's

2 x 2 by 2's

1 x 1 by 1

We had a bamboo bench top in the garage so was able to use that as our table top.

As you can see in the picture i have put a 2x2 in front of the 2x4. This was intentionally done for a few reasons.  1 it holds the table top up and 2 we had long items like printers and craft items. As the cubes are not super deep this helps store the long items. And things not used as often are in cube inserts pushed in behind. (We have the kids toys in them for when the nephews come over) 

Oversized pillows on the floor laying on, the kids love it. 

Its amazing what Clever Cube shelving and a bit of imagination can do.

Great project @Carol_Prime. I am sure this will inspire others. You can never have enough storage, especially with kids around.
