Creative Armoir Storage

Well, we finally got the library shelves finished and all the books put away! Yippee! I’ll be back to share how that turned out with you very soon, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, I’ve obviously had storage space on my mind lately (what with the addition of a whole wall of bookshelves and all), so when the folks from Chairish, an online marketplace for vintage furniture, reached out to me about putting together some ideas for keeping clutter down, I was all about it! Specifically, I hopped on board to show a less common use for a classic piece of furniture – a vintage armoire.

Back before closets were a thing, an armoire, or wardrobe, was originally meant to hold clothes. (Or possibly Narnia.) Now that closets are pretty much standard though, what is one to do with these seemingly irrelevant pieces? Well, these days, you can pretty much fill your vintage armoire with whatever you like. Use it to hold dinnerware, turn it into a bar cabinet, use it to organize your shoe collection. Whatever floats your boat.

Since this is a creative blog… you can probably guess what I chose to fill my imaginary armoire with:

I mean, how perfect would it be to store all your art or craft supplies in a vintage armoire like this one? Especially if your craft space is in a room that pulls double duty, like a guest room, for example. Work to your heart’s delight, then just close the cabinet doors and you once again have a beautiful piece of decorative vintage furniture.

Chairish has a huge selection of vintage armoires like this one, so be sure to check them out. And if you’re interested in any of the other items in the inspiration board above, here is a handy list of sources for you:
