Decorating 101

Well, I've got all my wheat...now, where do I put it? Does anyone have any ideas of how I can incorporate 30 white buckets into my decorating scheme?

make a huge craft table and put it all underneath. DO you have a basement. find a home for it down there.

Good luck!

WOW! And they're not even unstacked yet! I can't wait...mine will be coming in a month or so...and I have less space than you do!

Hmmm...under and behind anything and everything! Let us know what you come up with. :-)

I've seen this article ... somewhere! You pile the buckets at each end of your couch, then cover with tablecloths or my favorite ... line them up in front of your couch to make a coffee table.

Good luck:)

I have a stool turned upside down under the big box my wall clock came in and covered with a baby blanket and a sheer curtain, topped with a lamp and decorating bowl sitting between two of my dining room chairs for a conversation area. I think the food storage buckets would be a little more sturdy. You could also paint the sides and make little cushions to place on top of them and use it around the makeshift coffee table for extra seating.

I love all your suggestions. In the end, I stuck them all in the closet under the stairs. HOWEVER... that is only about half of what I need for grain, plus I need more beans...so, those coffee & end tables might just be the next new items in my house!

Wow, 30 buckets! I built a bookshelf out of white buckets before, but it was a pain to get the stuff out when I needed it. Plus that was only a few buckets! I'm glad you found space under your stairs! :)

I do what Maine Mom said...and I tuck a few cases into everybody's closets! :)

Captains bed. You build a huge wooden frame for the mattress, have it up high, and underneath the bed be accessible on one side. Loads of room for storage.

And hey, good for you!
