Storage Doesn't Have To Be Boring - Etsy Picks

Storage Doesn't Have To Be Boring - Etsy Picks
I live in a small cottage so adequate storage is a priority. I am a great believer in storage being  much more than a cupboard or some shelves. There are all sorts of containers out  there, some of which you may never have thought of as storage. Etsy is a treasure trove for these sort of things and here are my picks. Sorry but I couldn't resist the beautiful buffet in the bottom pic. Links are at the bottom of this post.
