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.
