Anyway! I'm always on the lookout for new, creative ideas both with sewing and with design. I saw this on Pinterest, pinned from a blog called "Storage and Glee."
What a great idea, right?
I am a serious sucker for storage. The Container Store is absolute heaven for me. So when I see an idea like this, I immediately make a mental note. Or I write it in my blog as my mental note clipboard is usually full.
As it happens, I am living now in my mother-in-law's house. She has moved to assisted living, where she has a wonderful little 2-bedroom apartment. It is small, and she took most of her stuff -- well, most of her furniture. I am slowly sifting through the rest of the house so I can move us in. It's a s-l-o-w process. Seriously. Snail's pace. Largely because I have all this school stuff to finish up for the semester.
In the course of cleaning out one of the closets, I found these.
I immediately thought "recycle bin!" My husband, who has been substitute teaching at the local vocational school, thought "horticulture department!"
And then I saw that photo on Pinterest. (which, by the way, you should follow in case you do not).
So I'm wondering if I could do something like that. The question is, what would these former flower vases hold?
I'm also wondering if I should just do something like this:
I dunno. Feel free to offer suggestions. I'm gonna think on it while I go write proposals, read George Sands, and draw a floorplan for a hobby store. I know, I know. Y'all wish you were me. : )
