This post is a sort of continuation of the last. You may have noticed that I added a new category to my shop: Storage Solutions. This is mainly for two reasons. I love rusty metal and old wood, and these things commonly make up the various buckets, boxes, bins, and baskets I fall in love with so often.
These items can add a depth of unrivaled character to a room, not to mention the practical side – they have stood the test of time and continue to outlive many modern storage solutions. There’s also a LOT of cool upcycled and vintage-style items out there for stashing stuff. Let’s see what I have today….
|A former chicken feed bin serves as an awesome countertop organizer for the kitchen! Who woulda thunk?|
A soda crate bathroom caddy – awesome!
|Locker baskets make fantastic storage containers – most importantly, you can see what’s in them.|
|Or use an old barn wood ladder for storing blankets or towels in a bathroom.|
|Get creative with vintage tins!|
|Or let a vintage hardware cabinet be the focal point of a room.|
Vintage items are amazingly useful. They are classic and durable, and often can be tweaked or upcycled into something else. They are fun. They have personality to spare and add a rich, homey feeling to a space. Enjoy them.
Maybe you’re saying to yourself, “Courtney, those locker baskets are just awesome, but where can I find some?” Well, I just happen to have – BAM!
