Need more space for drinks? Separate them and scatter as needed. Dying for a little breathing room? Stack ’em in a corner to open up the space.

If you’re not the crafty type, just stick a succulent and some metallic garland in there like IKEA did and call it festive.
Swap wrapping paper for an…oven mitt?!
You read that right. Up your gift-giving game and “wrap” that cheese knife for your mom in another handy kitchen item.

No one will ever be the wiser.

Chairs, benches, the foot of the bed in the guest room…you name it and a fluffy sheepskin will make it 10 times cozier.
