Organization is my passion and I am giddy when I can find unconventional storage ideas. Here are just a FEW I have around the house.
I use picnic baskets in my dining room to store big serving ware pieces. I love collecting dishes and need an overflow space. For example, I have a three tier platter I can’t fit in my kitchen cabinets or my dining room hutch. These picnic baskets, from an antique store, are perfect. They are deep, can easily be moved, and add character to my dining room.
Another option for storage is a bedroom dresser. This one was actually in my nursery! It has been painted several times over the years, but this is my favorite version. I use it to store electronics I want easy access to and some of my kiddo’s toys.
When we renovated our kitchen, I decided to get rid of our old canister set. But, I couldn’t really get rid of it. It’s perfectly good storage after all! They are now in my craft/office closet. They house anything you can imagine. Stick a cute label on it and you’re set!
So the dollar spot at Target is my greatest weakness. I will buy things, even if I don’t know what to do with them. I couldn’t pass up these accordion file folders with awesome patterns. I now have them hanging on a blank wall of my craft/office closet. I never knew what to do with this empty space and this is the perfect solution. I used heavy duty velcro to attach them to the wall. Be sure to put the scratchy part on the wall and the soft part on the file. I can easily remove the accordion file folder when I need to take it someplace else. It’s great storage for scrapbook pieces, bills, and different printer paper.
