Storage is one of those areas where we often compromise form for function. Yes, cardboard boxes and plastic tubs are practical, but attractive? Nuh-uh. If you are willing to spend the cash, you could pick up matching storage boxes—but there is another way. Here's an easy solution that is both affordable and adorable!
Wooden dresser-drawers are prime candidates for reuse in the home. Most times all you need to do is wipe them down and you're good to go—in this case, instant storage boxes that won't detract from your décor! Depending on the drawers you find, consider adding felt furniture pads to the underside to prevent damaging floors during the slide-action. If you are concerned about dust, tuck a piece of fabric over the contents. Under a sofa or even a bed, you can create a coherent look while saving on space with this simple and stylish storage solution!
