Boys room: Nerf Storage

Today I'm sharing an idea for Nerf Gun storage for our boys room.

My son is a toy gun fanatic.  
I'm sure there are lots of opinions about whether children should have toy guns.  
But he does.  He loves playing like he's a spy or army guy (like his dad). 
  We store the small nerf guns and bullets in a bucket on his bookshelf.  
But we didn't have a good system to store the large ones... until now!

I purchased a few of these bygel rails from Ikea.  

I attached 2 rails to a 4 foot pine board that I painted black.  
To hang the guns from the rails, I used bygel s hooks, also from Ikea, and 
S hooks I purchased from Home Depot.    

Most of the guns have pretty hand places to hang from the S hook.

This system works so well.  
My son can see what guns he has (so hopefully we don't buy double again) 
and he even hangs them up when he's done playing with them.  Bonus!  


  1. This is a brilliant idea! I need to do something like this for my house because I am forever tripping over my kids guns, especially in the summer.

  2. Love it! It looks like something out of a spy movie or something hehe... (that ubiquitous scene with the gun closet/chest/trunk of the car) Thanks for joining us at Idea Box Link Party! Hope to have you party with us again this week--party is live at 6am Thursday!

  3. If I could put holes in our rental walls I would totally do this! My son has to store all of his "weapons" in a tall-plastic laundry basket. This looks really great!! Thanks for sharing at The Creative Circle.

  5. I bet my son wishes we had so many Nerf guns that we need a dedicated rack for them. Haha. Although on that note, I kind of wish we did too... that would be fun for the whole family :)

  6. I and my son are big fan of nerf gun. Your post really help me so much. Thank for share !

  7. How did you attach the pine to the wall? Did you screw that in and how many screws did you use? Love it

    1. I used wood screws in each of the corners and then used 2 in the top and bottom in the middle. I didn't use wall anchors. It has stayed up with no problem.


Thanks for your comments!
