Inspiring Idea: DIY Rolling Storage & End Table

I love these multi-purpose ideas. Adding wheels to a picnic basket! Storage and a convenient table — right where you need it!

    Miss Melissa, how are you my dear and how are your articles with the interiors magazine website going?

    I’m a bit behind on “the goss” since I’ve been a way – but just wanted to pop by and say hi and send you a hug by cyber mail

    Much love and smiles

    *THAT* is a clever idea!

  3. Brandee

    Love this idea! Very simple.

    I see you like concealing uglies. I’m in the process of concealing a few uglies around my house. I’ll have to post them when I’m done.

    Isn’t that a great idea! I love it, too. And, is that a lady slipper?

    I didn’t realize they could grow like that. I know that they’re protected in my state. Now I’ll have to do some research.

    Hope that you’re having a great weekend!

    That’s an interesting picnic basket use!

    I adore and have two picnic baskets! This is a phenomenal idea. But my dogs would chew at the wicker! So mine are now (after one precious one was chewed on and thrown out) placed high atop the bookshelves. But I absolutely love this idea! Have to think of one made of wood or, better yet, steel for me… Your ideas, so inspiring!

    Melissa – That is just so cute and practical. Don’t you just love baskets?
    I have never seen this idea before and might just try it. There are tons of things you could store in there depending what room it was in.

    Hi Melissa

    We arrived home yesterday morning and will leave again, tomorrow morning. Back to the lake for more R&R. I’ve been working away at the ol’ back porch, today. Now I’m enjoying visiting!

    Thanks so much for your sweet words and for posting the photos. It was a wonderful treat to scroll down and see all the outdoor spaces and the creative concealment ideas!

    Have a great week!

    Well that is just perfect! I could use a dozen…..

    Oh, that is SO clever!

  11. At Home Redesigns

    And a great way to store reading material too. Very clever!

    Thanks Melissa for your comment on my blog! I’m not that tweaked out about my lack of “commenters,” I was mostly just talking (typing?) out loud. :)

    Anyway, I love your blog! And thanks so much for reading mine!

    Take care!

    PS – I’m still not sure how to respond to comments on my page. I don’t think that you get my responses to my comment on a comment… unless you have the comment feed. Thus, I’m filling your post with unrelated information. *evil grin*

    Great idea! I love baskets, too. Thanks for visiting me.
    Hugs, Susan

    Holy Cow- it never occurred to me to put wheels on everyday ordinary things- My mind is “wheeling” I’m so going to do that.
    another great idea!

  17. Jrizzo

    What a great idea! Gotta love that Martha! Jen R

    I LOVE it – what a great project!

  21. Shelia

    Thank you, Melissa, for stopping by for tea. I’m glad you enjoyed yourself. I think I’ll take a stroll thru your beautiful pictures again. Have a lovely day!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

    Love this idea – thanks for sharing it. I think it could work in my daughter’s room.

  23. Madelyn

    This is such a fantastic idea! Perfect to conceal the little things that clutter the house but still look oh so chic!
