350 IHeart: Way Basics & a GIVEAWAY!

This week's giveaway is kindly sponsored by Way Basics.


Paper based storage furniture became the foundation of their initial introduction for the brand.  Their founder thought it would be fun to create a recycling bin made from recycled paper, since it's one of the most commonly recycled materials.  It would be flat and then pop open like a paper grocery bag, but a much fancier design.  You would throw all of your recyclables in it, and then recycle the entire thing.  Pop another one open and recycling starts again.  Simple.  Elegant.

In their packages, you won't find any mysterious collections or screws and nails, or complicated diagrams and instructions.  That is because you can put their unique zBoards together without tools or hardware.  Super-strong 3M brand adhesive strips let you fit the pieces neatly together.  Just peel, stick and you're done!




Way Basics Manhattan Storage Bench is multi-functional as a storage bench for the garage, entry way, sandals, and you can even sit on it to put on your shoes.  Live in a small space, it's also a great coffee table or laptop desk in front of the couch.  What will YOU organize with it?




a Rafflecopter giveaway

  75. Fabulous!! I just went to the Way Basics website. I believe I found just the thing I have been looking for. I was looking for storage solutions for two long walls (they are both around 15 feet long) with a lower ceiling height. I wanted to be able to have seating and lots of storage.I think using a mix of their cubes, bookcases, and storage benches is just the answer. I like that I would be able to design it the way I want and that I can use baskets and bins. I just placed an order for a white 3 Cubby Stackable Storage Bench.

    I love the idea of the Manhattan Storage Bench and Table. So many uses; toy storage, bedding storage, shoe storage, decoration storage, pillow storage, a coffee table, a child's art table, etc, etc. The list can go on and on. You could add the Way Basic stools for more options.

    Jen, thank you so much for sharing this site! I have so many ideas floating through my head now.
