Getting Organized w/Shelves & Rolling Storage

Hi!  I don’t know about you but when I am juggling a hundred projects/tasks and start feeling over whelmed nothing helps like getting organized!  If you have been reading for a while you know that storage is limited in my house so many times we will have furniture and projects piled up all over the house including (especially) in my office.

The last couple weeks have been crazy busy, which is great!  I am not complaining but does require that I get organized so I feel better about everything.  When we renovated our house a couple years ago we moved a closet in the office/guest room and never hung any shelves so I asked my husband if he would help by installing some Home Depot shelves so I could put away some of the “stuff” hanging around my office all the time.  he said yes!! Yahoo!

I of course forgot to do a before picture but here are a couple afters.

The fab shelves my hubby did! Home Depot Specials:-)

After! Look at all that stuff I can put away!!

So the other glorious project my husband helped with was putting casters (wheels) on these two vintage boxes.  I have been just dying to do this and they turned out amazing. Just think instead of all those plastic containers you can have some “green” storage by refurbishing these cool old wood boxes.  How cute is this storage, great for pillows, toys, dry foods, laundry detergent, just about anything!

It just rolls right into the closet

Look at those wheels!

Here is the large one, how awesome is that! yes I am selling them email if interested

I can even see these holding sodas or other items in the bottom of a pantry or laundry supplies in a laundry room.  So many options for these fun guys, this is an easy DIY project that gives you storage with a little patina!

    Boxes = brilliant! Love this idea! I’m thinking my daughters toys…..maybe laundry, oh possibilities are endless!

  2. I think that is a great idea, I hoard vintage wooden boxes and tool boxes, I have one that would work great with castors. Thanks for the idea!

  3. I have an antique stove – an Oriole, that sits up on Queen Anne legs. I have a vintage pink crate – that I put roller balls on years ago. It holds my cookie sheets, muffin pans, and pot lids – works like a dream!
    I roll it in and out, under my stove for extra storage.
    Gotta love vintage!
