The Dish Room - Storing Pillows Too

A Stroll Thru Life
Now I know that one of the things we all have in common is a "million" decor pillows.  We have them on the beds, sofas, chairs, benches and any place we can find to add a pop of color, comfort and style.  I just counted and I currently have 27 on my furniture and beds throughout the whole house.  Good grief, that is a lot of pillows.  Can you believe that I have even more that I am not using.  Of course you can. I want to change them out for the season and whenever I decide to change my color schemes.  This means I own a lot of pillows.

Where do I put all those pillows and how do I store them so I can find the ones I want.  There are a lot of ways to store them, but I needed something that could fit in a confined space.  I wanted them easily accessible, so my Dish Room is what I chose.

 The minute we moved into this home I knew that the space under the stairs would be my "Dish Room".  It is right next to the kitchen, has plenty of space and I needed somewhere to store my dish hoard.  I've even thinned out my dish stash, but there is still a lot.

It seems like I have a pillow hoarding problem as well as a dish problem.
 I've stored them in drawers before and that works great, but I don't have room for a chest in this space, so I got one of those fabric closet storage hanging cubes and it works perfectly.  6 cubes so I could sort by color.

I purged a ton and still had this many (42), and this doesn't count some of the fancy sequin ones that I didn't want to fold.  (They are in the guest closet stacked on a shelf.)  A few years back I showed you how to take all the stuffing out of your pillows and add a zipper or velcro to them even if you don't sew.  So much easier to just have pillow covers rather than trying to store the whole pillow.

Napkins are another item that is hard to store.  I use to have them in a drawer in the entertainment center since it was next to the kitchen.  That worked great.  You can see all the colors and choose what you want.

For the dish room I am using this purple plastic storage drawer unit .  It was in my laundry room in the old house to hold all of my craft paints and things.  Now it holds all my napkins and napkin rings and I can sort them by color and get to what I need really easily.

So easy to see the colors and patterns and find just what I am looking for if you fold and stack them like cards.

A few trays on the top shelf along with table runners and everything is easy access.

So what is your secret for storing all those pillows?
