Guest Post : Creative Storage Solutions

Hello! I’m so happy to be helping Kelly by guest blogging during her maternity leave! My name is Jody and I’ve been fortunate enough to meet the new mommy through our involvement as Weddingbee.com bloggers. (I’m Mrs. Deviled Egg.) In addition to sharing my wedding story, I started a home blog, Creativity & Domesticity, where I post about renovations, decorating, recipes and crafty stuff.

One of my favorite things to do lately is shopping for things to make my house feel more like home. The rooms in our house are on the small side, so I have to be careful not to add too much and clutter it up. I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive and creative storage solutions that add style and function to our decor, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites.

I love this rustic crate-style organizer and think it would work great in a craft room or office. I can also see it as a display for small collectibles, like a variety of sea shells or vintage photographs and cameras, as shown.


Thinking of craft room storage, I would love to have a set up like this. I really like how the desk is made from open shelving units. This helps keep items easily accessible while your working. Shelves are an inexpensive base for a desk and you can use re-purpose an old door or used counter top to make a work surface.


Re-purposing everyday items for storage is such a great idea. I have a few, old muffin tins that would be perfect for use as jewelry storage. I can also see these tins filled with buttons and small scrapbooking supplies.


Of course, finding a way to organize pretty necklaces, bracelets and earrings that doubles as wall decor is also ideal. Collapsible peg racks like this one can be found on the cheap at any discount store.


My all time favorite re-purposed storage item is an old library card catalog. The drawers are perfect for stashing and organizing smaller items and the labels and draw pulls keep everything orderly and at your fingertips.

It would be a great addition to an office or craft space. Imagine all of the different sewing notions you could keep in one!


And the options aren’t limited to one room. I love the idea of using one as a buffet in your dining room or turning one into a bar for wine bottle storage.


Card catalogs can be hard to come by, but you can often find one listed on eBay or on Craigslist. They are also rather costly and heavy to transport. However, if you find one and are able to get it into your home, it is well worth the effort! The possibilities for storage are endless and they look fantastic in any space.

    I have noticed that online education is getting common because getting your degree online has changed into a popular alternative for many people. A lot of people have never had a possibility to attend a normal college or university nonetheless seek the improved earning possibilities and a better job that a Bachelor’s Degree affords. Still other folks might have a college degree in one course but wish to pursue something they now have an interest in.

    Thanks for the concepts you have discussed here. In addition, I believe there are many factors which keep your motor insurance premium decrease. One is, to contemplate buying vehicles that are from the good report on car insurance corporations. Cars which have been expensive are usually more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also based on the value of your truck, so the more pricey it is, then higher this premium you pay.

    Thanks for your submission. I also think laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular lately, and now will often be the only sort of computer found in a household. Simply because at the same time that they are becoming more and more cost-effective, their processing power is growing to the point where these are as highly effective as pc’s from just a few years ago.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    The very root of your writing whilst sounding agreeable at first, did not settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do nicely to fill in those breaks. If you can accomplish that, I would surely be impressed.

    Attualmente l più tecnologico e più forte resta di gran lunga l americano (come testimoniano le spese per la ricerca militare). Ma tra una decina di anni credo che il divario con L rossa cinese si andrà via via appianando. Certo è che gli USA, in un eventuale conflitto armato con la PRC non uscirebbero di certo facilmente e la vittoria finale, qualora riuscissero a raggiungerla, sarebbe ad un prezzo veramente pazzesco.

    Thanks for your helpful article. One other problem is that mesothelioma is generally due to the breathing of fibres from asbestos, which is a dangerous material. It is commonly observed among personnel in the engineering industry who have long exposure to asbestos. It can be caused by moving into asbestos insulated buildings for long periods of time, Genetics plays a huge role, and some people are more vulnerable on the risk in comparison with others.
