Recycled furniture (part II) – storage solutions

It is safe to say that almost everyone suffers from storage issues – we never have enough space for our things (whether they are worthy of keeping or not!).

Already I have shared my love for using recycled items in my home in a recent post, however I forgot to share the variety of recycled storage solutions I have collected over the years. I have found my solutions in the most unlikely places.

Dump your doorstops – it’s time to upgrade…

Recently I have become obsessed with doorstops. Maybe because I have had to rely on them a bit lately.

With the weather verging on 40° this past week, then the ‘cool change’ sweeping over us so quickly (dropping the temperature by 10° in the same number of minutes), Melbournians are very used to opening up the house to get the cross-breeze. The cool change is usually accompanied by a strong wind, which requires the use of doorstops to overcome the slamming of doors (resulting in pictures falling off the wall). It must be noted, I am describing the summer activities of those without air conditioning, those who would give up a kidney are ever so thankful for a cool change, combined with a strong wind to push it into the far reaches of their homes!)
