I think about storage a lot. A LOT. Unfortunately, a closet isn’t a prerequisite for making a room a bedroom, so finding room for all your stuff requires some creativity. (Full disclosure: I have a closet and an at-capacity clothing rack in my apartment.) This DIY Ladder Wardrobe idea is smart and definitely has an old-apartment vibe. Plus, the tutorial makes for one sturdy piece!

Save wine bottles, make your own tables. 

Simply insert bottles in to openings in pieces of wood. In addition to use as table tops, the pieces of wood (in this case, they’re scrap wood sealed with a wax finish) can function as serving trays.

Brazilian designer Tati Guimarães designed this collection. We featured her metal frame that holds corks — for use as trivets, or to hang on a wall — on Unconsumption here (way back in June 2009!). Check out her site, Ciclus, for additional information.
