    I love this idea so much! i have been looking for a cute way to store some outdoor items on my patio, in my apartment. Do you have any ideas for making this a tad easier to get in and out of the storage containers? Or I may have it wrong where these pretty easy to get into?

    Thanks and love your ideas!!!

      Thank you , glad you like this project! I only used the containers for things I didn’t need to get to often, because it was somewhat cumbersome to get to the containers. For my LA apartment, I built a simple lounging bench that has a top with a door to get to the containers. That might be a better solution for you. Here’s the link: Hope this helps and thanks for watching! Isabelle

    I’m going to do this project this weekend! What size plastic storage bins did you use? I can’t tell from the video. Thanks!
