Everybody needs storage and if you want to keep your space neat, tidy and organized you're going to need a lot of it! We've got storage bins, baskets, boxes and furniture pieces.If you want to have a fully functional organized home you're going to need a little bit of both.
Why I Love: I love the idea of a patterned basket weave! These baskets come in three different sizes and a variety of color ways. Since these have a chevron pattern I would keep them exposed in a room. It will add a charming touch to any space.
Exposed Table Storage
Why I Love: If you have some cute accent pieces that also serve a functional purpose use a storage piece that will expose them. This is a great way to add a decorative element. I love this light blue double stacked table. This could be an easy DIY project. The distressed dark charcoal piece provides drawer storage and would look great in a cottage chic space.
Why I Love: Boxes are always a good storage piece. It's an easy way to store pictures, dog toys, magazines, etc. If you can find a cute pattern they can look great exposed on a table like this. Find some to match your decor!
Why I Love: I love the colors and the mix matched hardware. The style of this piece is adorable, but the stripes give it that extra touch. Drawers are good storage for delicate clothing, or throw blankets.
DIY Storage Box
Here is a cheap, but cute way to get some of your own unique storage boxes.
1. Photo Boxes: I got mine from Hobby Lobby
2. Glue glider
4. Decorative wrapping paper
Lets Get Going
Here is the plain black photo box I picked up at Hobby Lobby. They have a few different colors and even a couple of patterns.
Lay out your lid face down on your wrapping paper. Mine had a grid so I left 2 rows on each side.
Cut out the paper, just like a present.
Roll your glue glider over the interior edges of the long sides.
Fold down paper over the long edges, pressing down over the glue. Be sure to pull firmly.
Fold the ends just like a present. Place glue on the interior edges of the shorter sides just like you did in step 3. Fold over the paper and press firmly over the glue.
Your lid is complete!
Now you have a fun super cute storage box! Add a fun colorful label to top it off!
Be inspired and create!
