A Handy Storage Solution for Small Spaces

Like many people, one of my New Year’s resolutions was to get more organized. This awesome swivel storage cabinet from the Solutions website is at the top of my post-holiday wish list.

The cabinet is tall and narrow, but manages to pack 10 storage cubbies, three hooks for coats or jackets, six photo slots, a mirror, a chalkboard, a corkboard, and a dry-erase board into one convenient location.

It doesn’t include the storage baskets that are shown in the photo, but I don’t think it would be too difficult to find similar baskets online.

The cabinet is made of MDF and wood veneer. It measures 15¾” X 15¾” X 64¼”H and requires a special shipping surcharge of $10 because of the oversized box it comes in.

Reviewers say the cabinet is sturdy, looks nice for the price, and is relatively easy to put together. Several people mentioned it being hard to move, though. If you decide to buy one, it might be a good idea to put it together in the room where you’re planning to use it.

The storage cabinet comes in your choice of walnut or a white finish. I’m partial to the walnut myself, but mostly because anything white in my home seems to be magnet for sticky little fingerprints.

I think this cabinet would be perfect for a kitchen or the entryway of your home. Both areas tend to attract a lot of clutter, especially if you have kids. This cabinet seems like a great way to give all of those little odds and ends a place of their own.

    Would this be likely to tip over and crash to the floor in case of an earthquake. I live in earthquake country.

    I really like this but think I need about 10 of them along a long wall to store all my clutter.
