Two Clever Storage Solutions

We’ve got family in town today and deadlines are hounding me, so I’ll just quickly share two storage solutions I spied on Pinterest:

1) Lillian at Domestic Simplicity used an IKEA spice rack as children’s book storage. They’re $3.99 each! What’s not to love!? I would love to see these used on the back of a bedroom door in an apartment. It’s a great small space trick. And of course the sky’s the limit with color options here.

2) Ana always has great (and totally achievable) wood-working tutorials. I love her laundry storage idea and wish I had one in our home. Anyone else feel like they’re doing laundry every single waking moment? The girls are starting to help me a little more and being able to sort them right out of the dryer would be a great time-saver for us!

Do you have a clever storage idea? I’d love to hear about it.

  1. I love that spice rack idea! It is perfect. Mental note made. Will retrieve later for my son's new room…

    thanks!

  2. I have been seeing so many clever DIY kids bookshelf ideas lately- but never a spice rack! My one-year old needs one of these, the books are out of control in a basket!

  3. If I had a six basket high laundry setup, I doubt I would ever do any laundry. And that would be great!

  4. Love the bookshelves! Makes me want to have one more baby and design a cute nursery!

    i just hung three of these in my nursery. i spray painted them aubergine from rustoleum… i NEED the laundry set up for sure!

  6. The laundry basket storage is GENIUS.

    The spice rack idea is so smart!!

  8. I love glass jars for storing items, like my make-up brushes and paint brushes. I can see things clearly-

    I have a similar laundry setup, but we use it on the other end of the laundry process – we sort our colors into three of the bins, with dark and white rags/towels going into the other two. It makes laundry day so much easier to sort once and NOT have piles all over the playroom floor (not that my toddler would mind!).
