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.

Shoe lover? I certainly am, but living in Brooklyn with limited space can sometimes cause chaos in the closet. An easy way to organize your shoes is with some tension rods! 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.

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 I originally made this storage unit for my daughter but used boy-friendly colors, on the off chance that she doesn't want it.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...
I have always done a lot of entertaining at home but have never had a proper bar. Which meant I was always digging through cupboards to find my bar supplies when friends were over...and not always finding what I was looking for.I finally decided to get a fold up bar cabinet that would give me easy access to everything when I needed it, but not take up much room when I didn't. The problem was that all of the cabinets I liked were really expensive.
The last 2 times we've been to the beach near my house, we've found a TON of washed up sand dollars. All different sizes. Some as small as a nickel and some much larger. However, the little ones are so delicate that lots of them broke before we got them home. I hated the thought of throwing them all away so I searched the internet for ideas on what to do with broken shells and saw some cute ideas that inspired me. Here is what I came up with...
Halloween is coming and we are having a Party this year and we need a few decorations. So I decided to start by making a giant spiders web to hang on the outside of our house.This project started with 15 plastic grocery bags and a regular household iron.
instead of buying into the run of the mill party decorations for kids, why not design and make your own....First up : Party bags!! use this easy printing technique to create your own design party bags....
These Halloween Gift Bags are so cute and fun to make! I’ll even teach you how to print on the bags if your printer can’t pull through the little ones.

I have some nightstands by the bed, but this guy can store much more and is an easy arms reach beside you! You can grab a cheap over the door organizer, and with a simple cut down the middle and some grommets and ribbon create a great bedside storage unit. This will give you storage on both sides of the bed and a variety of pockets to keep things neat and tidy. We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers.

I don't know about you, but my coat closet is always a wreck. There's just so many coats and so little space. Even after I go through our stash and clean out what we don't use anymore (which I have to do often now that my kids are growing so quickly), the closet is still a mess. I found out about this hack and was quite dubious if it would actually organize my closet, but I gotta tell you, it really works! And you know what I used to organize it? A soda can! Yup, you heard me. A soda can is what saved my closet.
Okay, so I have to admit, I have A LOT of shoes. I'm not the type to put away my summer shoes during winter, because you never know when you need a pair of flip flops or open-toe heels during the colder months (call me crazy but I don't stick with the close-toe heel rule...if there is one). Because I don't put away my summer shoes, coupled with the fact that I have a ridiculously small closet, it can look like a hot mess with the quickness. My closet is in my son's room, so even if I line my shoes up nicely, he eventually gets in there and messes them up. Hence, my need for a solution!
Did you know that air plants are powerful air purifiers? Or that they take up water and nutrients through their leaves? These fascinating plants are found growing on trees and rocks in their native habitats, opening up some wonderfully creative ways to display them in your homes.
Finding this small desk turned out to be just the right piece to try the gold dipped technique that I had been drooling over for so long. This makeover was done several years ago but I came across some old pics before I even knew about blogging and thought this was share worthy. So here is how this project went down!I started this project in the usual fashion by cleaning and sanding any areas that are rough. Especially with this piece because of the metallic that I have planned on using. Metallics are not forgiving with a lumpy bumpy finish. It needs to be super smooth for the gold dipped look so I took my time with it.
This is the perfect dream desk for anyone looking to save space in a stylish fashion. This is a wall mounted with a few built-in items. Starting with the back panel this is mounted to the wall with the French cleat system and wrapped with RF LED strip controlled by a remote. To the left corner, there’s a drink holder. In the middle section of the desk, there is an integrated power outlet with two USB port. To the right of that, there’s a small desk grommet to pass wires through giving the desk a clean look. As a way to stay wire-free, there is a hidden wireless charger. The bottom is removable so if any electronics ever fail you can easily replace it. Last but not least the desk is designed as a two-part system to easily break down and transport.
