With KonMari by Marie Kondo taking the organizational world by storm, we thought there was no better time than now to share how you can achieve an organized and tidy home using vintage elements.
As you can imagine, we’ve collected our fair share of vintage crates, totes, baskets and even shelving units over the years. Today, we are showing you how to incorporate these vintage items into your home to provide the perfect rustic touch, plus provide organization. Now that’s a win-win!
VINTAGE SHELVING UNIT
We LOVE incorporating vintage shelving units into our home organization. Rustic pieces like the one pictured below, provide a level of depth to your room decor, along with a way to easily display and house anything from books to toys or even dishes.
