16 Organizing Solutions: Inspiration for the Upcoming Talent Scouting Event for Cottages & Bungalows Mag

Pin It
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!

  1. I'm very excited about this, Amy! As I mentioned to you in a comment, we just downsized {gosh, almost a year ago already} and I have had to adapt and really pay attention to what I use in our home for storage and organization. I'm going to work on a post this week and link up!
