Elsie’s Super Secret Storage Cabinet

Today’s post is a little random, but sometimes that’s my favorite type of post. ? When we first moved in, I took a lot of comfort in finding ways to get organized. I wanted to get out of boxes as soon as possible and my first priority was to child proof all my skincare and things I hide from our children, like essential oils. I started searching for cabinet that had moveable shelves that I can use to store all sorts of stuff!

This is the exact cabinet I got. It’s currently sold out, but it says it’s coming back in September. Here are a couple similar options I found: 1, 2.

I swapped out the hardware on my cabinet for this Etsy set… much prettier! Swapping out the hardware that comes with your furniture is almost always a good idea. Makes it more personal!

What I love most about this cabinet is that I can organize it over and over and over again. At the moment, I am using it for skincare and fun accessories.

I ordered these headband holders, but other than that I used containers I already had for storage and it was so much fun. I used some ceramics from my old bathroom and office. I was thinking about hanging jewelry along the top back wall, but haven’t tried that yet. The other thing I hide at the top of the shelf are my rings… my children LOVE to wear my rings, and to be honest, it’s terrifying. I can’t even tell you how many little gold rings Nova has lost at this point.

On the top shelf is my skincare stuff. It makes me happy to have it all in one spot and always be able to find what I need and swap stuff around without keeping it ALL on my bathroom counter. I also keep things like nail polish up here.

Below that, I stored a few of my special bags, my headband collection, and my fancy shoes— which I wear basically never right now, but I can’t wait to wear them again someday.

Oh! I also have a huge collection of scarves, mostly vintage, that I keep in a basket. They’re fun for getting dressed fast!

Thanks so much for reading! I’d love to hear about your quarantine storage projects as well! xx- Elsie
