Tuesday Display Chain #6 Peek-A-Boo

Robyn picked todays theme Peek~A~Boo and wanted to know how we store,hide or stash things.Well let me tell you in my house there are a ton of these.I'm going to keep it simple though as I don't want you to know all my little secret clutter hiding spots..LoL...The old slant desk below holds all my bills that aren't stacked on the table,mail,taxes... oh and a antique civil war era paper magazine that I haven't had a chance to look at since I bought it 5 months ago.When company comes it's easy to grab everything piled on the table and throw it in here.Instant clean up!! Old stepback ..When my hubby redid and extended our only bathroom I lost my pantry so this became the new pantry..
Top holds all my food,bottom (not picture) holds my mixer,blender,bread machine and whatever else I can stack in there.

My miniature stepback bottom hides...

Candles and extra holders...

My biggest problem is books,cookbooks and magazines they are stashed a little here and there all over the house. In the living room I have a huge leather ottoman that opens that's a great place to stuff them,hubby tried to move it and it wieghs like 200lbs so that would be my biggest challange to find a place for magazines and books.Maybe I'll find something while checking everyone else Peek~A~Boo places. Primlish is hosting this week while misi is away so drop her a thank you and check out the other chain links.Harvest Blessings!~Amy

Great post...I have a desk just like that without legs. It is the best for hiding stuff.
Liked the candle cupboard too. I also hide mine in a cabinet, wouldn't want hubby seeing how mant i have already as I head to the check out counter with just two more!! LOL...
