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.

In NYC, every nook and cranny should be utilized! As soon as you walk into this apartment, you're smacked in the face with a long and narrow hallway to your left and the only bathroom directly in front of you. Where do you drop your keys? The mail? Your purse? We hate shoes piling up on the floor more than anything, so we knew we had to come up with something creative. We had a 14" x 12" corner full of valuable real estate, but we knew we couldn't just install boring floating shelves or shop forever for a perfectly-sized, expensive piece of furniture. Reclaimed wood, old spindles, and plumbing fittings and piping would do just the trick. We created a tall corner unit with 5 shelves--perfect for catching those small everyday items that can otherwise make your entryway look cluttered.
Hi, I'm Amber Oliver! I hope if you enjoy this project you'll also stop by my blog!When you hear "builder grade" you probably have the same yellow/beige color I'm thinking of come to mind. You've seen those boring bathroom mirrors that are essentially just glass stuck to the wall. I teamed up with a Hometalker who had FIVE of these mirrors in her house and knew she needed an easy way to transform them.If you're in the Houston area, I can help you create this look for your home!

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! The days continue their relentless march into coat weather! It's been a fast and strange year, but, let's face it - the day will come whether we are ready or not, so, time to get ready. I enjoy decorating for Halloween, and many of the projects (like pumpkins and fall leaves) can be carried over to Thanksgiving with a few tweaks. So for this project, I decided to make a project that could look great for both.
Scandinavian-inspired kid’s rooms are full of color and toys–they are mini, magical wonderlands that are eclectic and modern, and have a distinct easiness about their style. We’ve always kept our son's toys out of his bedroom as he has a dedicated play space on our lower level, but in his recent room re-do I wanted to create a more playful, imaginative atmosphere. His itty-bitty bedroom makes storage options limited, so I set out to find a toy storage solution with a small footprint that was cheap, modern, and fit with the Scandinavian theme.
When we scored 100+ free pallets, I knew I wanted to make things from them. There is so much inspiration out there these days here on Hometalk, Pinterest and Blogs etc! So when my daughter told me she needed a toybox for my grandson this is the first thing I made!
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. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.
We recently moved into a new house and are slowly tackling our space. The only room still not unpacked is the office. The problem is that we had built-ins at our last house that we DIY'ed and LOVED... so it was time to build and paint our own AGAIN. Let me show you how we did it!
I really wanted to give our main floor hallway a makeover. It was pretty dark and drab. The hallway is wide and I knew that built-ins would look great along the wall, plus they would be very useful. Custom built-ins are pretty expensive to have made - hence my idea of DIY thrift store bookcases!
Do you have one of those plastic storage bins lying around? You know, the ones we use for moving, storing decorations and tucking away clutter? I've found another great use for these bins - a toy box! Create a playful toy box with a bin, fabric and a little glue.
Are you running out of room for your books? I was, but I found unused space for them. You probably have this extra space too!This 1-day storage hack works on top of cabinets and other furniture. It’s a great way to avoid putting more storage on the floor, when you’re running out of space. This Book Storage Idea doubles the space on top of cabinets, dressers, desks, etc.And the build is so simple. You can use lumber, MDF, or plywood for this build. If you have enough scraps already, like I did, bonus!! You can adjust the length and depth on this build to fit your space perfectly. Just be sure to run a support under long shelves to prevent sag. I used a 1×3 for mine.See the full DIY and more build pictures here.
Back in January, while the rest of the world was cleaning, organizing, and purging. Closets, cabinets, kid's rooms, and basements. I had one thing on my mind- to get rid of all the scrap lumber hiding throughout the house.
The wall over my couch was just begging for some art. But I'm constantly changing up the frames and art in my home, so I didn't want to hang a large gallery wall and have holes to fill when I wanted a new look.So I decided to build a DIY picture ledge custom to my couch area.
