Love Your Space Challenge: Jan 2nd

Hi dears! What a great response to our first challenge. If you missed it, you can find it here.  You can also read about the 31 day Love Your Space Challenge here.

We did a little with bookshelves yesterday, today’s challenge will help you with pretty and functional storage. jan2-loveyourspace-post

“Shop” the house for a couple of baskets or containers to store those toys, games, papers, (fill in the blank) out of site when not in use. Another great idea my friend Joanna from joyFULLYdwell did was use a blue trunk for a sofa table. living-room41 living-room living3-joy-579x800

  1. I love this idea! We just moved into a much bigger house (yay!), but it doesn’t have nearly the storage downstairs that our old house did. The house looks like a wreck because of this–but I’ll be fixing that soon! 🙂

    1. Congrats on your move!! We are right in the middle of a move but not sure whether we have to downsize or upsize yet. Have fun unpacking, organizing, decorating, and all of that fun stuff!

    1. 🙁 You will get there! Just having one lovely room to escape to is wonderful. We (meaning I) are always changing things but I try to keep one area for us to enjoy.

    1. That’s wonderful Vashti! By the way, I just love your name. The book of Esther is one of my favorite stories. 🙂 Happy New Year to you too!!

  2. I so need more storage in my house, but I love the look of less furniture. Plus, if I put a basket anywhere, there will be a cat snoozing in it. That’s not bad, right?

  3. I REALLY want the gold and turquoise tray and candle holders you have on the table!!! This is actually a great idea and the fact that you used the large, nice baskets makes it look so classy!
