Hats Off to You

{my storage solution}

I had yet another dilemma the other day… as we are still living from boxes and are nowhere near our vision of ‘custom made storage’.  I was getting fed up of having to rifle through every box to find a particular belt or scarf or hat.

“Enough’s enough,” I said to myself one day and went round the house removing all the old, white, plastic screw in hooks that the previous owner had left dotted about.  I decided which room, currently under repair, would be my makeshift dressing room and I set about screwing the hooks into the wall {they don’t do too much damage and the holes can easily be refilled}.

In addition to one of our favourite paintings, I also hung up my very random selection of winter hats {in readiness for cold winter crispiness} and my various belts, oh and a full length mirror… I got a little carried away!!!

I would love to hear about anyone else’s accidental or planned quick-fix storage solutions!

Oh, and I have been so busy over the weekend planting my new hedge… I will tell you about it in the next couple of days!  It’s all too exciting!

  1. Love your hat storage. When we first bought our house there were a couple of unconneced light fittings sticking out of the wall without shades on. I covered them in straw hats and added a few more along the wall. It was just a temporary measure to make it look tidier. That was ten years ago and they are still there!lol! I am a basket fan where storage is concerned.

    • I have a few of those light fittings – I might tray your straw hat idea, if I may!? My next acquisition (I know I’m dreaming, as they’re quite expensive) is a basket trunk as a coffee table, so that I can store all of our bits in there as well as it looking cosy by the fire!
