Smart Storage Solutions

It’s official. ‘Spring Cleaning Fever’ has hit me and hit me HARD! Even with the record warm temperatures here in Canada, I have been itching to open the windows, get some air flow going on, and get organized. Clutter makes being cooped up inside so much harder, doesn’t it? One thing that Spring cleaning calls for is some storage solutions and I found some super cute ones on IShare Crafts this week! Today I’m sharing just six SMART (and super adorable) storage solutions to give my Spring cleaning the jump start it needs.

1. DIY Bell Jars

Bell Jars

Are these considered storage solutions? I’m sure I can stick something in here to get rid of some clutter. I would FIND something to put in these just so I could use them! What would you put in these DIY Bell Jars?

2. Map Boxes

Map BoxesBoxes are a smart way to store almost ANYTHING, but sometimes you don’t want to display them because they are…well….UGLY. I love this idea to dress up any old box using (love this) MAPS! I can see these pretties sitting on my living room shelves any day :)

3. Dressed Up Box

Yarn BoxNeed another box make-over idea? Decorating with yarn is huge right now, and I was drawn to this idea of covering a box, then wrapping it with coordinating yarn. How simple is this?

4. Custom Dust Cover

Dust CoverPretty up your closet storage by making a custom (and super cute) dust cover with your favorite fabric! What a fantastic gift this would make, too. Think: Prom, Baptism, Wedding…whatever!

5. Crib Spring Memo Board

Um…can you say “BRILLIANT” with me? This crib spring turned organizer does TWO jobs! Recycles old clutter AND helps you get organized. Yes, I’ll take one in white, please :)

6. Pringles Tube Layered Box

Pringles TubeSpeaking of upcycling old clutter, can you believe this gorgeous storage box is made from….get this…an old Pringles tube? Seriously, some people are just WAY too smart. I really, really love this.

It’s never too early to get into the “Spring cleaning” mode. And if you can swing creating some gorgeous storage solutions? Even better. I Share Crafts is such a phenomenal resource for all things DIY CRAFTY! Have you submitted your favorite craft idea, yet?

      Wondering what program you used for your St. Patricks Day Printables. I am looking for a good graphic program that is easy to navigate around.
