Today is the first day of Spring! But in New England it is still cold. But that did not stop me from starting to think about spring cleaning and spring storage. Every year at this time I start to think about changing over the kids bedroom – lighter sheets and comforters, etc. (ok, maybe we will wait a week or two to change over the flannels). Bringing out some fun spring decor and adding in functional storage solutions can change the whole look of the room. Do you ever notice how sometimes the children’s bedrooms can easily become messy? I like storage options that are small, fit in with the decor and provide a nice balance. I always like the options at Wayfair which has great storage items for the home (and everything else you could possibly need for your home). Strategically placed at the end of a bed like in the photo below, this storage bench from Wayfair is a nice solution to keep clutter at bay. It comes with the bins so all the little items your kids gather has a place. Another option that looks great is the tufted storage ottoman (and it also provides a seating area). Check out Wayfair.com for more home decor options and a great resource for spring storage and spring home makeover ideas!
You know I love my jewelry but keeping it organized can be a real pain. To hang or not to hang? To put in a tray or not? Here are some neat solutions to solve that jewelry storage problem.
The container store has some great storage solutions like the Green EVA Jewelry Store. It is made of dense foam to help protect the jewelry and can be stored in a drawer. This is great for watches, earrings and rings. The Green EVA Modular Drawer Organizers are so inexpensive you can buy a whole bunch and customize it as you wish as they are stackable.
I do have the Pottery Barn Teen wire storage trays but instead of using them for jewelry I use them for my bath products!
I like this tray from Bed Bath & Beyond as it keeps sterling from tarnishing. The trays have a dark brown faux leather exterior, a tan faux suede interior, and a lining treated with what the web site calls – Eliminox – which keeps sterling tarnish resistant for up to 30 years with normal use.
If you have a ton of earrings try this folding earring rack from get organized
For those with tweens the Bling Hangit jewelry hanger is cute and you can store earrings and necklaces.
Here’s to spring cleaning with our jewelry!
