Hello! Today's post is about the smaller details that make a house a home...and make it so much prettier too. Today I'm sharing tips on ways to hide those unsightly home items (the stuff you can't really throw out, but have no idea where or how to store it).
Whether you purchase your storage, or get creative and make your own, hopefully you'll walk away with some simple ideas to implement in your home!
Decorative crates are everywhere it seems! Buy them new, or find them at thrift stores or yard sales and "clean them up" Below is an example of an old wire crate found at a local thrift shop. It was cleaned, spray painted gold, and fabric lined:
2. Smaller containers
Hide the small stuff with these smart "home-made" solutions.....
Using empty coffee cans or soup cans, place contact paper around them and label using label stickers. These are great for pantry items, art supplies, bathroom items, or anything small you want organized, and looking pretty!
3. Bookshelves or hutches
Bookshelves and hutches are great ways to store "things" in a pretty way. You can hide smaller items in baskets or crates, and fill the gaps in with your decor....
Storing items non-traditionally in hutches is something we do often in our home. It's fun to use furniture in different ways, and helps to avoid the "shoving everything into drawers and closets" syndrome. When something looks nice, we are more likely to continue that trend, putting all those "things" back where they belong.
And there you have it. Simple storage options that will not only help you organize, but provide a pretty way to display all those things that clutter up the house! They are especially great when you are expecting company! Just hide that clutter and you're good to go!
What do you use to hide all the clutter? Have you ever made your own storage?
