Creative Vintage Storage

In place of guest post this week, we thought we would share a fabulous project we worked on with the Washington Post Express publication, creative vintage storage ideas!

Space for storage is almost always an issue in the older houses around this area (and everywhere)  – they have tiny closets and very little built in storage. So, how do we create storage that is still beautiful, interesting and adds style to a room? By using vintage pieces like crates, industrial-style roller racks and re-purposed china cabinets!

For this piece with Washington Post Express, we re-purposed a vintage china cabinet and turned it into a fab shoe closet. By adding extra shelving and displaying colorful shoes it creates not only storage, but something really pretty to look at. Here are a few fabulous vintage pieces in the shop & at Rough Luxe next month that would make perfect vintage storage pieces.

And here are a few inspirations we found on Pinterest to for how to use vintage pieces – like an old drawer as a bookcase – and vintage suitcases as drawers!

    LOVE these ideas. My husband and I have been struggling with storage that looks vintage for our vintage. You have some great ideas. I especially love the suitcases in a stack in a shelf. WOW!

    Wonderful pix and inspiration.
