trones clothes hamper
sandrine repurposed the trones shoe storage as a clothes hamper, all properly labelled – “white”, “black”, “color” and “delicate”.

space for inspiration
jenni found a super solution to the problem of wanting a wall-sized inspiration/bulletin board without having to put large and multiple holes in the wall. the hultet curtain/room divider is lightweight and hangs from the crown molding in her craft room. she says, “i tapped my entire supply of clothes pins getting the ‘board’ started, but i know it will hold hundreds more images and photos.”

    I love the sugar shaker idea, but my containers from Ikea won’t open once I put my spices in them. They are now purely decorative.

    Very clever! Seems like it would inspire you to change it a lot just because it is so simple to do.
