Feeling squeezed

Last night, as I struggled to get around my bedroom to change the sheets on my bed, I got to thinking about storage solutions for small spaces. Particularly, small bedrooms. I am unsure of the exact deminsions of my bedroom, but I do know that with a queen sized bed, and two small dressers in there I really don’t have a lot of space left over to work with. I purchased bed raisers in hopes that I would follow through, and actually use them, but alas, that has not yet happened.  But once,  I finally do get off my lazy blogging bum and do it that should provide some great space to store out of season clothing items.

However, I’ll still have to find a place to store shoes, in season clothes, accessories (because a girl must have her twenty gazilion vintage broaches and leaf pendents.) So, it got me to thinking about unique yet attractive storage solutions.

Here’s an idea I found on the HGTV website, the homeowners used shelving to create storage and visual interest. I have something similar in my junk room office. Except the version I have is a bit more industrial.

Here’s another thing I’ve been really excited about, but not followed through with. I bought several really cool vintage looking mirrors at an estate sale a few weeks ago, and still haven’t put them up. Partly because I don’t know where to hang them, and mostly because I’m just a lazy blogging fool. I’m hoping this picture inspires me to hang my cute little mirrors.

This one, I loved the idea, but I know it would never work for me. Since my house is so small none of the walls are thick enough for something like this. But a pretty picture none the less. Thanks to the writers of HGTV for providing such pretty pictures and great ideas.
