Interior Design hints and tips
from Divine Shabby Chic – By Jane Richards
Hello and welcome to my hints & tips updates on The Bingley Hub Online.
This month we talk about storage, and that all too needed chore – De-cluttering.
We all know storage can be a problem, from the children’s toys to the paper work in the office, keeping things tidy can be a real chore.
Here are a few ideas to putting an end to your storage dilemma.
Caning Your Clutter
For the office/kitchen/bedroom or craft room, you can turn a tired tin can into a fabulous storage delight like this.
Paint them in your chosen colour, add a stylish trim to the centre and you have a container to turn your clutter into “Shabby Chic Heaven”.
Storage in a Suitcase/Trunk
Manage your mayhem with a vintage twist. Look out for old war time suitcases/trunks, they are an amazing find. By adding a coat of paint they can make an excellent table plus giving you the added bonus of storage. Or you could use the suitcase as a doggie bed ! Vintage heaven for pampered pooches to co-ordinate the look.
