So I had to find a creative, stylish new storage solution.
Let me explain. I've recently hatched a nefarious plan to remove the closet doors and put a desk/vanity area in the guest room closet space (where all my supplies used to live), so the crafty stuff had to find a new home. It felt good to sort, purge and drop off the unwanted items at the Goodwill.
With the closet now off limits for storage, I had to get creative. I turned to these three key pieces: 1. The sideboard (an old ZGallerie purchase) that used to live in my hubs office and is now acting as a dresser in the guest bedroom. 2. The tufted storage ottoman I scored at HomeGoods. and 3. The vintage under the bed metal storage case I found at a local thrift shop. These three are secretly storing all of my craft supplies as well as everything our guests need while visiting.
|It's not really a secret.|
I used my rolling the sheets trick once again and the extra set fit inside one of these fabric bins perfectly. All of these storage containers came from my home away from home- Target. I painted some wooden cutouts, glued grosgrain ribbon over the handles and used a secret weapon (I'll be sharing more deets on this in the very near future) to make labels. I wanted the storage inside to coordinate with the gallery wall above, so when the doors are open it all flows nicely.
The other two sections are for ME and my crafty supplies - aka where I hoard grosgrain ribbon.
I fell head over heals for these floral fabric storage containers at Target. How pretty are they?! I picked up a pack of the silver Martha Stewart label holders at Staples. They stick to practically anything - including these fabric bins. And yes, my labels have little polka dots (#obsessedmuch) on them! I heart them so and can. not. wait. to show you all how easy they were to make!!
The tufted storage ottoman is where I crammed all of my fabric samples. They're all so much easier to get to now as I used to have them stacked on a fairly high shelf in the closet. No need for a step stool to reach them anymore, and no one but me knows they're in there.
The vintage under the bed storage container that fits perfectly underneath the sideboard-turned-dresser has been converted into a gift wrap storage box.
Everything I need to wrap a gift is right here in one easy-to-find-easy-to-access place!
Thrift stores are great places to find storage containers that marry form and function. I use a few vintage pieces to store out of season clothing in my master bedroom.
