Tension rods are honestly a staple in organization these days and this hack is no exception. By simply installing some tension rods in your closet you can rest your shoes in an orderly fashion easily. We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

Hi Everyone, today we are in Zari's room and muffin is also joining us. I wanted to make an adorable idea I saw about how to build a toy organizer for Zari's toys using Dollar Tree buckets! It looks really cute and works so well as well. Each compartment is for different toys and keeps things very organized. I decided to build the pyramid from 6 buckets and have three levels but you can build it as high as you would like. So are you ready to DIY? Here we go. For this project all you need are a few colored baskets from the dollar store and sharped edged object to make holes, and zipties to secure the buckets to one another. Projects with convenient items that you can just pick up at a local dollar store are my favorites!We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

We are having a Halloween party this year and before I get to all the house cleaning and yard work, well I had to make a few decorations! With these upcycled pumpkins I am calling the front display complete. And I am out of excuses for postponing my other chores.
Our home has a room converted from half of our garage that my husband uses as his "man cave". There's a really awkward closet that wasn't serving much of a purpose. So we worked with Ana White to come up with a door that also serves as a bookcase! And the best part? You can hardly tell it's a door! We chose to install a deadbolt and use the hidden closet for locking gun storage. It cost about $60 in lumber. For more photos and a link to the plans, you can see my post here http://www.killerbdesigns.com/is-it-a-bookcase-or-a-door/
My hallway was boring, ugly, dark, uninviting – you get the picture. Before we bought the house, the one wall across from the closet had a type of salt wash that made it very rough. I sanded it down and painted before we moved in, but never liked the hallway partly because it was dark and partly due to the bifold doors. Or should I say "bifold door."
When we first moved into our cute little farmhouse all three rooms had no closet doors. I'm one of those girls that likes to keep my home really really clean. But in the occasion that I need to get some quick cleaning done, I toss my "I-don't-know-what-to-do-with-you-pile" into the closet. We didn't have closet doors, so you can see how this was a NEED TO DO project. I love the look of painted white paneling and I wanted to incorporate something a bit more sleek into our bedrooms. If you don't know what we do for a living, head on over here to have a quick read. Our home is very rustic.
I tore out the simple shallow closet we had and put in a custom pantry with built in drawers. Huge improvement.
So I started my dining room… Oooooo 800 years ago. So yeah, of course, I’m kidding, But it was like a lifetime ago and it is driving me crazy. OK when you’re doing some sort of renovations or updates, and you’re doing it yourself, there are bound to be delays. In my case, there were lots of delays. I mean life happens. No..Seriously, Life happens. So here I am in my dining room getting things done. FINALLY! First on my list to complete is my window seat with additional storage.
Here is a tutorial on how I built and how you can build your own window seat.

Hi! It's Andrea from Target + Tory. I love to DIY, whereas Shannon loves to BUY. I knew our toy room was in need of a makeover when I could barely walk in it. The Ikea Expedit cubbies we had been using were NOT cutting it.

Our 5 year old Lab, Koby, was having surgery which meant spending several weeks in his crate. Because the crate would be in our main living space, I wanted a functional piece of furniture. After a Google search, I saw on Etsy, storage units with built in pet crates for over $900! I knew I could make one for much less.
I am always looking for inexpensive ways to create storage in my kids' rooms. I originally made this storage unit for my daughter but used boy-friendly colors, on the off chance that she doesn't want it. Turns out she wants it, but wants it painted fuchsia. This project uses wooden crates that I already had, a lazy susan mechanism, two pieces of wood for the lazy susan, a full length mirror, hooks, and scrap wood for shelving. **Just a note, my daughter is all of 5 ft 1 inch tall, so this project is the perfect height for her, but if I were making for myself... I would add another crate.** One of the comments below from Snuttall1947 was brilliant! She is making one of these for her bathroom. Imagine what a great space to store towels and bath products vertically. Just wanted to share, in case you miss this in the comments. So many great comments on where to use this: craft rooms, closets, pantries, pool areas, garages, laundry rooms and mudrooms... I hope I didn't forget any... Possibilities are endless...
