Home storage ideas and more

There are some lovely ideas for built-in storage in the May Old-House Journal. (Remember when you decide to have a pedestal sink, you have to find storage elsewhere.) There's also a selection of decorative hooks--some with shelves--for storing things in plain sight. (I prefer Shaker peg boards; we have them in almost every room in our home.) I also enjoyed the article on the restoration of a Craftsman-style house. (I love colonnades!) And an article on restoration mistakes, which include improper paint prep and mixing metals, plus an article on row houses. Oh, when tracking down your home's history, don't forget Sanborn (fire insurance company) maps.
