With the "Organizing Solutions: Room by Room" Talent Scouting Event only a week away, I thought I'd scour the WhisperWood Cottage archives to see if I could inspire you with some organizational ideas. Here are 16 organization projects that I've done over the years. While putting them together, I noticed a trend...most of them use repurposed vintage pieces! Click the links below each photo to see the full posts.
The first two photos were featured in the current issue of Cottages & Bungalows Magazine. Thanks, C&B!
