Unique and Imaginative Wall Storage Ideas
By Pamela Cole Harris
Everyone can use more organization in their lives (except those
misguided souls who alphabetize their spices, canned goods and
color-coordinate their laundry supplies!). Additional wall
storage can help bring that organization into your home. And
original and unusual wall storage ideas can help organization
become décor pizzazz! Here are some ideas to get you started:
- If you have old fruit crates or soda pop crates, attach them
to the wall to become a wonderful storage unit to display
books or knicknacks. You can paint the units to match your
décor or leave the original labels and wood to create a
rustic and unusual centerpiece of your room.
- Do you have an old garden bench or one of those wooden
benches which are frequently beside dining tables or in
entry halls? Try it attaching upside down on the wall. Use
the shelf created by the bench top to display collections.
Just think of using a white distressed bench as a shelf for
teddy bears in a child's room.
- Old wooden hangers can make beautiful storage units for
jewelry, ties, and even shoes. Paint the hangers a solid
color and let dry. Then add decorative touches such as
hand-painted flowers or stripes. Or wrap the hangers with
strips of fabric using glue to adhere the strips to the
wood. When the hanger is completely wrapped, cover with a
decoupage finish. Attach to the wall with painted or plain
- Want a wonderful idea for towel storage in a bathroom? Try
attaching a window box or planter to the wall and fill with
folded towels and washcloths, soaps or creams. Add trim and
paint to make a unique storage unit.
- Need an easily accessible place to store your pots and pans?
Attach a narrow wrought iron curtain rod with decorative
finials to the wall. You can hang the pans from S-hooks
which have been hooked over the rod. A great idea!
Use your own imagination to turn everyday objects into storage
areas. You might come up with the perfect solution to your
organization needs. Hmmm.any ideas for storing the 20 years
back issues of "Better Homes and Gardens"?
