New England Stamper: Weekend Inspiration - more storage ideas

August 25, 2011

Weekend Inspiration - more storage ideas

Happy weekend everyone! We're waiting for hurricane Irene to hit us here on the East Coast. Lots of rain so far, no wind yet, but we're bracing ourselves! We've put away everything in the yard and are sitting it out at home. So while I'm stuck inside, I thought I'd share some more imaginative storage ideas I found this week.

Amy Powers created this adorable suitcase to house her craft supplies - isn't it just to die for! She shows how she made it step-by-step on her blog.



And another adorable suitcase was spotted over at Grey Likes Wedding. Now, I just need to find a cute vintage suitcase to repurpose!


This next item made me squeal - how much fun is it to store supplies in a brush like this? Better than cleaning with it!

And here's another one that left me speechless - why not put your pencils in a vintage cheese grater?


The glitter season will be upon us soon! Arlette at Polka Dot Pineapple stores hers in salt and pepper shakers - how clever and pretty is that?

Here's a way to use those cute ice cube trays that the kids make us buy at the store, then it's impossible to the ice cubes out of them. Instead of letting them gather dust in the cupboard, you could use them store little doodads on your desk. I bet your kids would love to use them too!


This last piece of inspiration isn't exactly a storage item, but it sure is pretty! Tina from Sweet Floweret decided to pretty up the trash cans in her home with this fun trash bag holder. She has a tutorial on her blog if you want to create some too.

Thanks for stopping by - have a wonderful weekend. Stay warm and dry if you're in the path of the hurricane!
