I don't know how clever this storage idea is, but i've been inspired by this thread.
Today, I added 2 storage baskets under our free standing chairs. The baskets are attached to the chair frames with velcro strips. I sewed the velcro to fabric, though the velcro alone worked just fine. Just in case anyone is wondering, "why bother hanging baskets from the chair frame?"...we tried first to use a tote under the chair & the chair could not be pulled out without moving the tote. This seemed like a solution to that little annoyance. And, though the picture looks like the basket is on the floor, it's actually about 3" off. I'm thinking the baskets will be a good place for light weight items...books, magazines, games, etc. (A place to stash that stuff that takes over the table.)
The area under & around our table could be better utilized. I'd love to see more ideas for this area.
