Finding Storage in Wasted Spaces

I wish I could take credit for this one. I saw a picture while surfing the Internet once, where someone used a tension rod under their sink for this same purpose. I decided to use a closet rod set-up to be more sturdy.


My laundry room is VERY small. But it's an out-of-the-way space and I love using every square inch for storage.


Behind the door...when space is limited, might as well start stacking UP.
We used the same closet-rod-idea in my daughter's room to store all her purses.

These are shower curtain hooks and key rings on a metal rod.

I've been scarce around Blogland lately. Notice some special orders I've been working on, below. At least I haven't been sitting around eating Bon-Bons!! :-D

Those are some great ideas - thanks for sharing them. Judging from the pretty creations you turn out, I somehow get the feeling you do not sit around eating bon bons. :D I am so hoping to get enough of the "stuff" out of here, so that I don't have to keep looking for extra storage space - will see how it goes.
Have a great week.

I'm sure you don't have many idle moments girl! I love the idea for the spray bottles...have to check if I have enough clearance to do that. So handy! Your bluebirds are really handsome...are they going to a 4th of July party?

You make the most adorable things ML! I've been kind of MIA too what with all the hoopla with a preemie grandgirl and summer visits with the sweetpeas. Great ideas for storage. I need to do that with my large collection of purses. Mimi

Thank you for sharing...love all your organizing techniques....the drip catcher idea is BRILLIANT!!!

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

Total genius. Also I'm so impressed with how much stuff you are able to fit! And I thought I was the queen of cramming 12 pounds of stuff in a 5 pound sack, so to speak. ;)

Cute (!!) creations. Oh...should I not be sitting around eating bon bons! Rats!

Cheryl said...

Stephanie said...
