Bows, tissue paper, gift boxes, oh my! Instead of tossing these in a box (where they'll surely get smashed), repurpose a rolling cart. Blogger Whitney Mier of This Little House of Mine chose the IKEA Raskog utility cart for her quick and easy wrapping station.
Is there anything the IKEA Raskog utility cart cannot do? Cassidy Tuttle of Succulents and Sunshine lined the top shelf of the Raskog with window screening then filled it with soil, moss (to mask the soil) and succulents. Small potted succulents fill the other two shelves.
Bundles of wrapping paper rolls can be tricky to transport from space to space. Keep them all nice and tidy inside of a rolling mesh laundry basket. Thanks to their height, you can see the different styles of paper popping out the top, and lockable casters will help make them kid and pet proof.
Dorm room space is at a premium, so movable furniture is key. That's why we love this rolling, open storage. It's perfect for pantry storage, and you can steal a shelf for beauty essentials or office supplies when your kitchen stash is running low.
To give this contemporary kitchen a unique and edgy feel, designers Cortney and Bob Novogratz integrate industrial vintage pieces, like the rusty red rolling cart and metal shop stools, as well as thrift store accessories.
A chrome rolling cart brings functionality and storage to a small bathroom. With a stone vessel sink on top, the cart transforms into a creative vanity solution. Gray wallpaper in a faint plaid pattern adds sophistication and masculine appeal.
A circular steel rolling cart with shelves is used as make-shift bar space in a hallway with hardwood flooring. Nearby, a wood table with an accordion-style base displays a vase with yellow flowers under a framed mirror.
Two very different looking tables handsomely contrast each other in this connecting space. A very modern circular rolling bar cart made of polished chrome sits in the living room while in the nearby foyer, a tall wood table with an accordion base makes for a stunning entryway.
Mini refrigerators are useful, but they aren't all that attractive. Personalize your dorm room refrigerator using strips of washi tape. We created an abstract stripe design with metallic gold tape. Chalkboard adhesive over the freezer allows you to further personalize the appliance. A light turquoise stacked shelf creates a cute and useful pantry for food and kitchen accessory storage.
