Storage Solutions for Small Spaces

Are you short on storage space? Are you wondering where else can you possibly store your stuff? If you are tight on space here are some ideas you may not have thought of. So let’s make Use of all Unused Spaces

Under The Bed

 Modern Style

I really love how the whole mattress lifts up here. This way you get to use all the space underneath. Even though everything is hidden underneath, I would have to see how easy you could lift it to know rather or not it is safe for little children.

Drawers under the bed are always a plus for extra storage and easy access. They make a great place to store clothes, toys, or blankets.

  Raised Bed

This setup is perfect for small bedrooms. It gives you storage in front, drawers at the end, and you could also add storage under the stairs.

Tote Sliders

Totes are a made for storage, but what do you do with all the totes once they are filled? Well here is an answer to that, slide them above your head.

 Ceiling Bookshelves

This idea is wonderful for large book collections to be placed where they are not taking up space for other items. Since you want to read books, the ladder makes perfect to be able to access them often.


Between the Studs


The way this kitchen is set up, this wall would not be able to used without getting in the way. So a built in cabinet is perfect to add storage and still be able to open the refridgerator and drawers.

Make Your Own Make Up Vanity

 Here are five different vanity set ups that you can make yourself.

Vanity with Lights and Ribbons

Unique vanity lights made with white Christmas lights and ribbon.


vanity with straightner storage

 I love how the shelf has holders for the straightener and blow dryer. This is a great idea since you could store it while it’s still hot. I would have to add one for a curling iron as well, but worth it.


suitcase vanity

Love the idea of using an old suitcase as a vanity. I would make it float though; I’m not a big fan of the legs.


Shelves and Mirror Vanity

Mirror on the wall with two floating shelves underneath. Nice clean look.


Table and Mirror Vanity

I saved the best for last. I love all the storage they have fit into this area. The glass top is an amazing idea so you can see what is there without making a huge mess.


Repurposed Challenge #2 ( Dresser – 25 )

I was challenged by Michelle to find 25 ways to repurpose a dresser. This one was a little hard because most repurposed dressers I found were actually upcycled dressers. In another words, most dressers were still used as dressers they were just upcycled to look nicer. However, after several days of searching, I think I found a good list. Some are used as storage but not for clothes…..
