Storage Idea #2:  Repurpose an Old Door

DVD Storage
If you have one or two of these old doors lying around, use them! Decorate them, paint them and put them to use by having them hold DVDs in the family room.

Storage Idea #3:  Magazine Storage

If you are like me and hate to throw out magazines in case you want to read them again, use a rolling platform to put them underneath or beside your couch.

Storage Idea #4:  Wood Storage

Hidden Wall Storage

For those of you that use fireplaces, this idea will get your attention. Have a built-in closet that you can put your split wood in. A sliding door covers this little closet and will ensure you have storage for wood when it gets to be chilly in the house.

Storage Idea #7:  Built-in Wall Unit

Built In Wall Unit

A built-in wall unit is ideal for a family room that is narrow. You can have it built or build it yourself. You can store blankets and pillows in the unit when they are not being used.
