Our kid’s bedroom didn’t have a good storage to keep their toys organizes. So we decided to build this piece to keep their toys at least in one area. A lot of time they had their toys on the floor in a corner but now with this DIY Storage for Toys that we built will help them keep it more organized. Here are the step to build it.
- Cut and Attach Bottom Piece to Backside
- Attach Sides with Pocket Hole Screws
- Attach the Front Board to the Sideboards
- Assemble the Upper Section of the Storage
- Finish by Attaching the Front Piece
This is a very simple and inexpensive project to build using only plywood. Material cost about $35, depending on what type of plywood you purchase.
My wife built this Toys storage mainly by herself. See the video below.

Step 1 – Cut and Attach Bottom Piece to Backside
Cut all pieces to dimensions provided in the cut list using a miter saw and/or table saw. Drill pocket holes with Kreg Jig. Then attach the back sideboard to the bottom board.
Step 2 – Attach Sides with Pocket Hole Screws
Next attached the sides using 1 1/4″ Pocket hole screws.

Then attach the front piece.

Now for the upper section attached the smaller sides to the bottom board. Make sure that the front sideboards are flushed and the backside has 3/4″ space.
