It might be a bit premature to be thinking about wrapping presents for the holidays but it's never to early for clever storage ideas. Jennifer (from The Felt Mouse) is a crafter--which explains her great selection of wrapping and decorative paper. But when the couple added carpet in the bedroom, their previous under-the-bed storage solutions for their wrapping paper became no longer useful...Storage containers for underneath the bed run around 6-7 inches in height. Once Jennifer added new carpet to the bedroom, the available space could no longer house their previous containers. The solution? DIY storage! A board complete with a handle and loops for bungee cords allows for easy access to Jennifer's wrapping paper collection. We also like how the couple utilizes under-the-bed storage for shallow containers (instead of using bedside tables). Because the room is bite-sized, there's no extra space for more furniture. In another part of the house, instead of irregular sized boxes taking up room on their Expedit, Jennifer stores board games in glass containers. Game pieces are corralled for all to see which give the space a playful vibe.
