With 2 full-time university students in the house and 2 more enrolling next year, having everything organised is an absolute must for me. Ever since I can remember I have collected boxes, crates and tins in all shapes and sizes which has all stood me in good stead over the years. You can leave them as-is if you favour a vintage look, or cover it with anything from beautiful wrapping paper to mock leather — the possibilities are literally endless.
Our earlier post on getting organised had such an amazing response from you guys that we’ve decided to make it a regular feature on our blog. Let us know what you think and share some of your own ideas!
Wooden library card file cabinet — great for organizing supplies or photos. Or how about placing it in the kitchen and filling the drawers with recipe cards, spices or other small utensils.
Milk bottle carrier — fill with supplies, potted plants or herbs in the kitchen!
Well-ordered junk drawer with expandable organisers
Altered cans — very pretty and good for storing almost anything.
Floor to ceiling shelving
Shelves made from old wooden crates; love the wire baskets!
