Do you love to organize with attractive storage? We recently updated the small  laundry room in our MS rental for under $50 by adding DIY shelves and a brush stroke feature wall. Those shelves add so much style and function, the wall is super quick and bold (and easy to paint over - key if you're renting!) but maybe my favorite piece in the room is that vintage storage caddy.

I found this piece years ago at a thrift store and loved the narrow footprint. It's the perfect piece to tuck away in any small corner. I had been using it as craft storage but when we moved to TX and madeover our laundry room for under $100, I decided to use it in the room for extra storage. However, it wasn't really functioning well for us until I added the baskets!

If you're interested in the full tutorial of this vintage storage caddy makeover, as well as how I numbered the baskets, please read Update a Cabinet with Numbered Baskets. Baskets are amazing, but numbered baskets are a game changer! When the kids or Mr DIY are looking for something (ie: sunblock), I can direct them to the exact place "the sunblock is in the number 3 basket"!!

Keeping my family organized helps the whole house to function better, don't you agree?
