Living Room Storage Idea

Declutter your living room shelf without going over the budget. This idea of mine is cheap but clever. I integrated storage and organization with decorating.

My original plan was to buy ready-made boxes or baskets but what stopped me is that I’m unsure of its size or color or if they go with the scheme I wanted. So I took another route…

Find an empty box, cut according to desired size. I made it sure that it fits to the space I want it in.


Wrap with cartolina to make the outer space even or flat before applying another layer of design.


Wrap with a desired wallpaper design. I chose wicker basket theme to match the color of my living room shelf which was handcrafted by my husband.

Put the little figurines and tiny wedding souvenirs inside the box. If someone wants to see them, they’re just within reach.


Make another 1 for the other side of the TV stand to have a symmetrical look.


I know it still looks cluttered, I’m just starting out to make my 40 sq. m. house cozier and more presentable by following blogs on home interior designs. 😉
