Do you ever buy things just because you think they’re pretty–fully intending to use them for some “higher purpose”–only to get them home and use them as, well, decoration? That is my problem with boxes. I buy them, and my argument tends to be, “Well, they’re not just to look at. I can use them for storage too!”. Jeanette has the above boxes in her closet, and they look spectacular. Every inch of that closet looks spectacular! But what in the world goes in them?! Yeah…hmmm…storage.
Hey, I’m a hard-working woman. I can buy these without them having to serve a dual purpose, but what a bummer! There’s got to be something I can put in these things, right? These are in my guest room. Sure are pretty–sure are non-functioning!
My daughter’s room is nooooo problem. She’s got boxes and little tins (remember Target?) galore that are just meant to house little shoes the size of a pebble.
I even bought boxes for my office desk thinking, “Well, of course, I’ll find a use for them in there. Nope. Nothing. Zilch. Do have some faith in me. I have places already for many things, so it’s not like I just don’t have a clue. However, there’s gotta be some innovative idea that I’m missing here.
Fellow bloggers unite! Search over the hills and through the trees for some spectacular ideas for these beautiful, albeit, pretty useless boxes.
