Rethinking Storage...

I love this twist for displaying all your items found on Living Etc.. Instead
of a typical bookshelf, why not trim down a console table and mount it to
your wall. I like it! {I now need the wall space and a console}.


You could also paint or stain crates and stack them for shelving and/or
a room divider. Instead of stacking them one on top of another, you could
turn and arrange them differently, even leaving some holes to place something in.
Stairs can take up ample space in a home, so be sure to use if for
additional storage. I have seen shelves and drawers built into stairs,
but never shoe shelves {clever if in the right location}.

Now, lets just swoon at some more storage and organization.

I love the last one with the books displayed as if they're at a store. I think it makes it much more enticing to pick one up.

I love the baskets with the luggage labels on them; my favourite. I also love the old trunk in the last photo.

Storage is something to think about especially if we do not have enough space at home or in our workplace but we still want to get organized. With the help of cabinets, shelves or storage spaces, we can be able to move freely and feel comfortable.

This is a fantastic post. Me and my wife have just got married and moved into our new home and we're really struggling for storage space. Some really fantastic ideas. The shoe shelves are a brilliant idea but I don't want to encourage my wife to buy even more shoes ha!
