Box it Up-- Stylish Laquered Stationery Boxes

My poor husband has a real problem with saving every piece of paper he's ever received. Seriously- he has rental agreements, paycheck stubs, etc. dating back for like 10 years. While he does a good job of filing those papers away, he does not do a terribly good job of filing the current month's collection of papers. I was tempted to show you a picture of his desk, but I'm too embarassed. Making matters worse, his office is in the front room of our house, in place of a formal living room.

Solution: stylish lacquered boxes. I've been looking for ones that will fit 8 1/2 x 11 paper and I've finally found them! Several of them in fact! Below, are various sizes of boxes and sources.

  1. What a beautiful selection of boxes! I love the black and white, but I would take the orange, green, or the beautiful wood finish... Now if I just had some equally elegant things to stash inside.
