Just because something is functional doesn’t mean it has to be drab. Many of the storage solutions available at Gardner Village are as cute as they are useful. More than that, they’re VERSATILE! Today, we’ll look at three unique items — one small, one medium, and one large — and how they can each be used in three unique ways to keep your home looking tidy AND fun!
STORAGE SOLUTION #1: Small Cake Stand
This idea takes the cake… and sets it aside. Instead, this cute wooden stand from Down to Earth is a great countertop pieces to use in the bathroom, the closet, or even the playroom. Sweet!
Make bath or shower time as gorgeous as it is relaxing with a grouping of beauty/bath essentials from Soulstice Day Spa and Salon.
This sleek cake stand can also keep your favorite fashion accessories, like these on-trend items from BohoChic Boutique, within arm’s reach.
Since the stand is made of wood and not nearly as fragile as the more commonly seen ceramic cake stand options, it can even make an interesting creativity station for the kiddos. Find these supplies and more at Storybook Nook.

This shallow basket also works well to keep your craft together, whether that’s a knitting design like this from Willow Hill Yarn Company, some paints brushes and paper from The Art Cottage, or any other supplies you need to compile.
