Easy Ideas for Stylish Storage

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Stylish Storage It’s that time of year…time to purge the closets and clean out the drawers! I am already well into scary closet territory and I am discovering that I want some pretty options for storage…the kind that makes me smile when I open the closet door! So I pulled out some of my favorite ways to add a little style to those boring baskets and containers and I am sharing them with you!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT No-Sew Basket LinersFirst up…my no-sew basket liners…an easy way to help identify what’s inside and to add a little protective layer to your baskets!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT No-Sew Basket LinersI love using them for storing my ever-expanding collection of vintage silverplate flatware…and for serving them up at a buffet! You will find a detailed tutorial plus the free graphics here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT {Super Cheap} Pottery Barn Inspired Numbered BasketsA super-easy and super-cheap way to add some style to your storage baskets is by adding big number plaques! My Pottery Barn inspired numbered baskets were so easy to make…and the source for the numbers may surprise you! Find out more here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Faux Enamel French Number PlaquesAnother inexpensive way to add style is with my faux enamel French number plaques! They are easy and inexpensive to make, too! And, as usual, the free graphic is included with the tutorial here.

I also love my DIY grey willow French laundry basket…lots prettier than the plastic version that used to be in my closet!

It also had spent some time in my grandsons’ room with new wording on the chalkboard tag…jouets…French for toys! See how I turned an ordinary basket into faux willow topped off with a chalkboard tag here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Finding Farmhouse Style at WalmartAnd are some storage ideas with French farmhouse style…from Walmart! Yes…I found these great galvanized goodies at Walmart! And…hold on to your hats if you have not seen this post before…nothing was over $13…including that $10 olive bucket! See how to find them here. (And as of last night…everything was in stock online!)

Baby Kitty However, our co-host Baby Kitty seems to prefer the simplicity of a good, old-fashioned cardboard box! Must be a cat thing! Hmmm…thanks for the suggestion, big boy, but I think I’ll stick with my prettier options!

  6. Hi Debbie, I love creative storage also! I have been to Wal-Mart looking for that olive bucket. Why did I not think to look on line? Thanks for sharing your fun ideas! I'm ready to purge my sewing room closet. I love that kitty is not finicky and loves a cardboard box!

  8. Living in a small cottage, I like your ideas of stylish storage. But my cats also prefer cardboard boxes.

  9. You really need to put all of these decorating ideas in a book. It would save everyone from printing each of those lovelies out. Have a great year. Joyce
