White Stripe Storage Box

It’s hard to believe that we’ve been living in our new house for over 7 weeks. In addition to unpacking and painting, I’m quickly discovering that what worked in our old place is not necessarily going to work in our new. From paint colors to decor, we are rethinking everything as we start this new home chapter. And our most pressing need has been for new storage solutions in a variety of areas.

In our move we lost over 600 square feet of space. Although we gained some great storage (hello pantry and laundry room cabinets) we lost several rooms. We sold off and donated a lot of the big stuff, but storing the smaller stuff that we brought with us has required a little more creativity.

Our guest bathroom that once had the most amount of cabinet storage in all of the bathrooms in our home now has zero. So I quickly began looking for a cute basket or crate to hold toilet paper. I knew I was on to something when I came across the Skogsta wood handle box at IKEA.
