Rolling Underbed Storage

Rolling Underbed Storage
A couple months ago, I picked up a drawer at a local re-building center and 4 casters for $3 -  to make an underbed storage container for my son's room. 

This was so incredibly easy to do.  First I laid the drawer on a tarp, removed the handle and gave it two coats of bright red paint.

Once it was dry, I added the casters to the bottom.
Finally, I threaded a piece of rope through the holes where the handle was previously and made a rope handle to make it easy for him to pull out.
I ended up finishing this project in less than 30 minutes and I think it came out pretty stinkin' cute!
You can't even buy a plastic tote for under $3!
What do you think?
