Stylish Storage

decoupage chest by martha stewart Stylish Storage Good Monday to you!  Are you ready to see some stylish storage?  Get ready to be inspired to organize!  How do you like this fancy little cabinet?  It’s a simple generic set of drawers that’s been dressed up with a fancy stencil.  Very clever.

This is a little vintage side table that’s been painted cream and outfitted as a hanging file folder on rolling casters.  hanging file from old table by bhg Stylish Storage

Saucers and teacups make lovely containers for jewelry.  If you are like me,  it is much easier to keep things organized when they look pretty! jewelry storage by martha stewart Stylish Storage

double desks with plexiglass panel by martha stewart Stylish Storage Create a his-and-hers office by pushing 2 identical desks together in the middle of a room.  Have a piece of tinted plexiglass cut and slide between the two desks to create a message board.

Simple wooden boxes or old dresser drawers can slide easily under your bed for storage with the addition of casters. under bed boxes by martha stewart Stylish Storage

cigar recipe box by bhg Stylish Storage I love this inventive recipe box.  Cigar boxes have such interesting graphics – just add an interesting drawer pull and stack a few on a shelf in the kitchen for easy access.

Save your old paint cans – a little wallpaper or scrapbook paper adds personality and pizazz to storage of pencils, markers, and other office supplies.  paint cans as stylish storage via bhg Stylish Storage

message center via bhg Stylish Storage Install a peg board and slap some chalkboard paint on the inside of a kitchen cabinet to make a message center that closes to reduce visual clutter.

Need more room in your closet?  Try hanging pegboards on the wall.  Add a few hooks where you can hang belts, purses, scarves, etc.  Squeeze as much storage out of a small space as you can. closet pegboard by martha stewart Stylish Storage
