Before There Was Container Store....
Boxes and Baskets and Bowls...
Instead of heading to the nearest Container Store, use a one-of-a-kind container to house an everyday object.
|Mom uses this beautiful old trunk as her coffee table. (and notice the basket/tray on top that holds a few little pretties). Inside she stores her Christmas Santa Claus collection.|
| Without a cabinet to hide anything in my powder room, I used this box to hold the tp. A few guests have noticed that the box is an old prune crate and laughed... get it?|
|Hmmm... What could be in Mom's flour box? Not flour! How about paper napkins???|
My sis-in-law is the queen of organizing and she is great about making sure everything has a place where it belongs. Mom and I try to channel her organizing abilities... but we still need lots of her help.... I always try and think, "What would Whitney do with this?"
|On my coffee table - Pretty bowl from my blue collection for the not pretty collection of remotes|
