From 'Flea Market Style' by Emily Chalmers - I'd love a patchwork wall in my craft room :) or maybe with sample pots of paint?
entryway with fairylights - oh yes! when I paint the hallway and make it all lovely, this will make a gorgeous finishing touch :)
Ikea Socker - just bought one of these, thinking of using it for yarn storage for now.

If I ever get one of these, this is a nice way to display it Scored one today from a charity shop! Properly adjustable too and looks like it's never been used. Not vintage, but it looks great dressed up in my craft space and will be useful too :) Burlap, Craft Space, Chicken Wire, Christmas, Display, Craft Room, Petticoat, Vintage Inspired, Crafts

pole with things hanging off - I have one somewhere, might work on gorm...
I want some of these cute and cheap Ikea jars
I just bought this little house, minus the shapes which I don't need, from bargain corner for a quid. I'm going to make it pretty and use it for storage :)
I have a dome topped chest not too dissimilar to this, soon to be on show more. It is tatty, but I have no idea if I'd be devaluing it to do it up or not...
make my own fabric box storage But... I want to be able to see what's in the boxes. I don't want more ugly plastic boxes, so I'd prefer pretty fabric ones. What to do? How about incorporating a window made of perspex, that thin plastic stuff from those cheap Ikea frames, or floppier transparent stuff whatever it's called. It might just work!
this is why I need lots of bookcases...
We bought a pot of the colour on the left, Russian Velvet 3 of the Dulux colourmix system. At least, I think it's that colour - we scored a ready made rejected pot for almost a quarter of the price! It's for the hall. It might be a bit in your face, but it will make a strong first impression!!! I fancy using small highlights in orange, gold, purple and or teal. And maybe orange on the ceiling... wear shades if you visit :D
This is the stair basket. I was disappointed in the base, it is not as secure as I would like, fine while it's on the stairs, not sure I'd want to be picking it up with stuff in - not ideal for a box, but they look nice.
GORM Shelving unit IKEA Untreated wood; can be treated with oil or glazing paint for a personal touch and a more durable surface. also has bins & things to store stuff that you can get! Idea, Pantri, Ikea Garage Storage, Shelving Units, Garage Shelving, Basements, Apart, Gorm Ikea, Basement Storage
Just put this in the cupboard under the stair, to put plastic boxes full of stuff on :) Had to trim the tops of one side to fit, it's snug but works.

Flower basket wall storage- i did this when we had a small home next to my side of the bed since i had no room for a table. i used a basket with a flat bottom so i could even put a cup in there. it worked beautifully.
