My house is filled with boys, and while they have been through a lot of toys, Nerf has been a tried and true favorite. So we have A LOT of Nerf! Recently my youngest son has started customizing his Nerf with nice paint jobs, so we want to do a better job of caring for them.
BEFORE: Basically all the Nerf were thrown in a large plastic tub. Small parts sorting to the bottom and potentially lost forever.
AFTER: We used a tall bookshelf with the shelves removed and the back replaced with pegboard to display the best Nerf. A overdoor hanging shoe organizer was used for all the odds and ends. We stored the ammo and magazines on a nearby bookshelf in cute tins.
We got the bookshelf for free on FreeCycle. It was pretty flimsy, but the added pegboard from Home Depot helped make it more sturdy. It fits nicely into exactly the same spot of as the old plastic tub.

Now my son can show off his custom painted Nerf guns!
The Shoe Organizer was such a simple idea, but works perfectly! There are so many random things to hook onto the nerf and small guns, that this makes a great place for all the odds and ends.

Ammo and Clips go on near by book shelf. I Modge Podged a few coffee tins to store the bullets in.
So now we have the ultimate Nerf arsenal!
