Common kitchen cabinets can only hold so much space, and it can be all too easy to over-stock your shelves with those ambitious trips to the grocery store. So, when it comes to home kitchen customization, I’m all about maximizing the storage potential of those smaller spaces that often go by unnoticed. One frequent example of these often-underused areas are the narrow absent spaces that are created by the distance between a refrigerator and whatever it rests beside—whether it be a counter-top, dishwasher, cabinet box, an ending wall, etc.
My neighbours were having a lot of building work done over the summer and, they had a skip(dumpster) outside their house full of lovely bits of scrap wood. I rescued some of this wood and combined it with some old road maps to make some fabulous ornaments for my home.This isn't the first time I've combined maps and wood I made a map printed pallet frame you can see here.
I wanted something fun for my table this year. Even though it will be used for the first time during our Thanksgiving dinner I made it so it could be used throughout the entire year.The estimated cost of this project is assuming you already have a cutting machine and most of the materials. I had most everything at home left over from different projects. The only thing I purchased were the handles.
I store a lot of things in mason jars all over in our house -- dry goods, candy, and craft supplies in my craft room.
Since I love everything vintage, I use my collection of vintage blue mason jars to store many of my craft and DIY supplies in them.
When I found inexpensive white plastic Ball mason jar lids that look so much nicer in our white kitchen, I updated the jars on our kitchen shelf with these white Ball "storage caps."...
Today I wanted to make some spring style Tissue Mason Jars . I don’t know about you but in my house it is the season for sneezing! so what better to remedy this ! Then with fun spring time color jars , with customized words on them ! The best part about these is there so many different ways to decorate and express your personal taste to these from the color to embellishments . The first things you will need to do is stop your local craft and grocery store and pick up these items .mason jars 32ozround kleen tissueemblishments of your choice burlapfoam paperhot glue gunglue sticksbaking sodastir sticks paint of your choice chalk sealervinyl So I decided that I wanted to make my own chalk paint for these jars . If you would like to do the same it’s quick n easy . Just make sure to use it within 48 hrs of making it . For every cup of latex paint Use 3 tablespoons cool water and 1/2 cup baking soda and stir well .so now after making your paint let’s get to painting . Give it two even coats and let dry at least an hour . then add your vinyl . Spray sealer in a ventilated area .Let dry for twenty minutes. Then add extra embellishments .i used foam paper and burlap and glued them together and cut a cross in the middle for the tissue to come out . Followed by me gluing that to the top of the inner ring of the mason jar Lid . I then added the tissue paper. Pulled it threw , twisted the lid . And there you have it ! Your very own tissue mason jar !
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.
Got any pickle jars lying around? Don't toss them before you see these great DIY's!To begin, take off the label by soaking the pickle jar in a sink full of warm water & add 1 cup of vinegar. After the labels are off wash with dish soap to make sure the jar is clean.
I love recycling items to create craft projects! I recently attended a community cookout and managed to collect lots and lots of empty beer and soda cans. It's a great way to repurpose discarded or unwanted items into creating some of my crafting ideas. I've had a couple of projects swirling around in my thoughts - one of which is a candleholder. A candle holder that looks chic and modern but so easy to make! And the best part - you can use it indoors or out!

This project is very much in the same vein as the yarn ball tree I did a couple weeks ago, but this one is MUCH less time consuming and I think it is a bit cuter too hehe... This mitten / glove tree can be created with your bag of misfits that many households have or you can order some gloves in bulk for crazy cheap as I did! Simply make a chicken wire base and hot glue the gloves on for this Dr. Suess looking mitten tree!
The double door base cabinet turned into a giant mess of pots and pans and Tupperware. I need a solution to make it more useable.This worked so well I did it in another project too.
