Self-confessed Clutter Bug!

I have to admit that I am a complete and total clutter bug, I have soooooo much stuff!!!! Storage is a real issue for me, however I have come up with a solution for displaying/storing wee knick-knacky things (is that even a real word? I'm sure you know what I mean) So here is the photo story...

 I started with a box (decoupage project that never came to fruition!)

 Took the lid off (YAY! This will make two storage units!)

 I glued cardboard jewellery boxes inside to create the compartments

 Decorated with  decoupage

The finished storage unit on my wall - I will be making more of these!
