clever storage

.
These old wooden boxes look stylish and unique but without trying too hard.
Love them placed next to the super sleek stool.

Such a great use for old drawers! That's all they are, painted, backed with wallpaper and placed sideways. Not my preferred colour but love the idea and the wallpaper backing.

Love this storage solution. Really wish i'd thought of doing this years ago BEFORE i had my stairs carpeted (big regret). You can't even tell there are hidden drawers there when closed. Definitely an essential project for my next house.... one day, far far away.....

Moondoggie! I can't get back to view your blog again, can you edit your profile and select share profile :)

There, I think I've sorted it - I didn't realise I'd 'unshared' it. Let me know if it still doesn't work.

The drawers in the stairs are brilliant. I've never seen this before, and yet it seems so obvious!
