Hidden..VINTAGE Storage


I’ve been on a purging streak as of late

I’ve been playing with organizing here and there

We all have stuff that we need easy access to but don’t necessarily want it out on the countertop.

So I’ve been trying to inject some unique storage pieces

this cute little galvanized toolbox

but look what’s hiding inside.

vitamins and daily dosages of this & that

easy access which helps us

remember to take ‘em

without the ugly bottles on the counter

win, win!

and another storage option hiding place

is this vintage bank box

that I’ve just taken a piece of chalk to it for a simple, temporary typographical addition

I love me the #5!

In here I keep recent receipts {again - accessible yet contained}

I truly love vintage, rustic storage pieces rather than plastic tubs and containers.

Adding some charm while still getting the clutter contained & under control is never a bad combination!

  1. Those sure are some pretty storage solution contains!! I love all galvanized containers! Martina

  2. I'm glad you asked! :) I did a post on this same topic just a short while ago. Here are just a few of my storage ideas: http://studiovalerie.blogspot.com/2011/06/storage-with-style.html

    And I LOVE your tool box and your bank box! Don't you just love finding new ways to use the treasures you already have?


  3. Great idea! I love pretty storage!

  4. Love all your storage solutions, especially the vintage bank box! I use vintage baskets, old milk boxes, old tool boxes. Anything vintage is more appealing to my eye than clutter!

    Do you have an online shop?


  5. I just found and bought a vintage marshmallow tin yesterday that I now keep my sugar in. I know sugar isn't clutter but I sure like storing ANYTHING in something vintage and pretty. Love your storage solutions!

  6. I'm with you...I've tried to use plastic containers but they make my eyes itch! I'm lovin' those metal storage options...I'm still on the hunt for my own!

  7. Great storage idea. I love finding places for hidden treasures :-) Visiting from Sweet Peas and Bumblebees.

  8. I'll be keeping this thought in mind. I hate the plastic tub I use for my medicine!

    Thanks for the idea, Michelle

  9. So glad I found your blog...I am with you on the whole "hidden storage" thing. And if it's vintage, all the better! Love the tin look. This would be great for my Tuesday Club G.W. with Charm Bracelet Diva Pary going on right now! Would love to see you there!
