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. 

Paint a wooden shutter a happy color and mount it to a wall as a mail sorter.

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!

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.

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. 

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.

Create mudroom storage with a simple bench, a few mounted knobs and hooks, and a shelf.  A galvanized tray holds shoes beneath the bench, while a galvanized pail holds shoes and boots.

    I really like the idea of peg board in the closet!!! I can think of all sorts of uses for that. My problem would be getting the pegboard hung.
