super storage, vintage style
Ever wondered how stylists get those kids' rooms and work spaces in magazines to look so uniquely fun and interesting? Here's a fail safe way to make your space very special -- use vintage lunch pails and boxes, and vintage Ball jars, to hold all kinds of small stuff. Ball jars are widely available in the U.S. at estate and yard sales, antique shops, and flea markets, and cost between $3 and $12, depending on size and degree of rarity. We love the blue ones, but clear ones are less expensive. Lunch pails and boxes are a bit more expensive, but the cool old graphics make them so totally worth it!
