In 1927 when this house was built as a vacation cottage, people evidently weren't concerned with storage. I have pockets bigger than my closets. There's no basement of course; underground is under water. And attics are not very popular here. So if we own it, there's a specific place for it.
Welcome to Storage Rehab.
Boxes: one of my favorite tricks for stashing clutter. You'd never know that I save greeting cards, candlescaping materials and cartoon action figures, would you? A little paint and ribbon made these faded mismatched babies into a set.
A painted basket and spaghetti sauce jars keep art supplies in order and at my fingertips. NEVER throw away jars. Ever. Just don't.
Where's the remote?
In a garage sale seagrass silverware caddy painted Spa Blue. It also keeps our coasters nearby nicely.
This little octopus has a secret...
...he's hiding our chopsticks! No more getting scuffed up in the silverware drawer.
And this long hair of mine has to go up and out of the way when the spray paint comes out. I'm a huge fan of hairsticks.
A short, square candle holder filled with small polished river rock turns my collection into a display.
Nope, this wasn't rocket science, but it works for us.
How about you? Any amazing organization tricks you'd care to share?
