Limited floor space can drive you up the wall. Luckily, there are so many wonderful options these days for bookshelves and wall storage that go far beyond your typical styles. These products are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to pieces that are big on both function and form. — Heather and Vanessa from At the Picket Fence
Markson Rolling Modular Storage - $59
Reminiscent of a rolling door, this space-saving beauty has tons of potential for any room in the house. Use it in the kitchen, the pantry, a playroom or even the dining room.
Down to the Wire Wall Bin - $39
Who doesn't need more storage options in their kids' rooms? If my kids had these darling hanging baskets, I might actually be able to vacuum their floors more often.
Renee Shelf - $139
These hanging shelves have such a wonderful vintage feel to them. The crisscross pattern on the sides adds so much charm and character.

Talk about chippy charm! This darling wall shelf not only has hooks for hanging items, but cubby boxes that are perfect for dropping off the mail, keys and the random assortment of things that wind up in your kids' pockets.

Perfect for that quick reminder or message, this chalkboard and basket combination would add function and charm to any wall.

No more tripping on those skateboards in the garage! This storage solution even has places to put their safety gear. Now I just have to figure out how to get them to actually put it all away.
Conceal Floating Bookshelf - $13.50
These "invisible" floating shelves turn your books into works of art on the wall. I think even Jane Austen would approve of her tomes being displayed like this.
Birdcage Magazine Rack - $39
I just love it when form meets function. These birdcage-style magazine racks do dual purpose by turning a decorative element into something that is also perfectly useful.
Bird Nest Coat Rack - $60
This would put a smile on my face every day if it were hanging in my house. The sweet birds and nests add a wonderful element of whimsy, and the fact that you can decorate the nests seasonally is definitely a bonus.
Ekby Alex/Ekby Valter Shelf With Drawer - $54.99
With floor space often being a hot commodity, a series of shelves with drawers going up the wall would be a great way of providing much-needed storage for those things you might not want on display.
Tide Pool Side Shelf - $200
The sweet simplicity of this shelf makes it perfect for any child's room. Use it as a bedside stand or a place to stack towels in the bathroom. The possibilities are endless.
Bolo Wall Hook, Black - $39.95
Hang your hat on a hat? Why not? Go daring and hang three of these Bolos in a row.
Zinc Wall Shelf Profile - $295
Sleek and sophisticated is the name of the game with this beautiful zinc shelf. It happily takes a back seat in order to let your decor shine.
Seagrass 3 Tier Wall Basket - $49.99
I absolutely love this three-tier seagrass basket! The natural tones work with all styles, and I could see it being used for magazines, linens or, as you see here, bathroom storage.
Metal Wall Basket - $33.95
I recently used metal wall baskets similar to these for storing my son's Lego instructions. It just goes to show how something so simple can be a clever way to maximize space and get rid of clutter.

This is such an adorable way to display those mementos in style! And the vintage clothespins only enhance the farmhouse feel.
