wrapping station

 when we built our house, we had some oversights.  like no coat closet.  or broom closet.  which lead to nowhere for wrapping supplies storage. (or broom storage, or coat storage)

so i had to get creative.

our sofa table has become the perfect spot to store everything we need.  and its all accessible by the kids, who are honing their wrapping skills.

 the top 3 drawers hold all the smaller supplies.

the first drawer holds: ribbons and twine, and super small gift bags.

the second drawer holds gift tags and labels, tape, scissors, and a pen.

the third drawer hold tissue paper (which i am nearly out of, thanks to christmas gift wrapping).  we also have a couple rocks in that drawer to weigh down the tissue paper and hold it in place.

 i have a slight obsession with vintage luggage, but it does come in handy for storage.  these suitcases hold supplies neatly and discretely.

 i love wrapping paper from target’s $ spot.  not only is it just a buck, but it comes in short little rolls and fits perfectly in the suitcase.  for my longer rolls, i store them above the shelves in the playroom.

 the other suitcase holds gift boxes and bags.

how easy is that?!  what i love most is that it doesn’t looks like a wrapping station, but just part of my house!

    Love this idea! I have been trying to work out where I can put a wrapping station but the inspiration hasn’t hit me yet! Hopefully soon…

    We don’t have a coat closet either, and no where to store our vacuum. It kind of drives me crazy! We keep our wrapping stuff partially in the dining room dresser and partially downstairs.

    Happy New Year!

    I like this thought more than in the closet. I may have to look into this.

    Great way to justify your obsession with luggage!! Makes wrapping paper much more organized and pretty that way!

    OMGosh, how I love those vintage suitcases! What a fab idea to store gift wrap in them. I am having a serious issue with all of the holiday gift supplies that have taken over a corner of our bedroom. Now I’m inspired!

    Love your wrapping station! Always love your decorating and posts about your house. And, I actually had wondered on occasion if you stored items in your suitcases. I have one suitcase under my daughter’s bed for costumes, two in our hallway library for sewing supplies, and one in my bedroom for special papers – mostly artwork or notes/cards by my kiddos to someone else in our family. However, none of my suitcases are stripey like yours…jealous :) Blessings to you and yours!
