If you are anything like me you don't just have one junk drawer... you have one too many! I know there are a lot of solutions out there to help you get organized, but why not repurpose something you have on hand to help clean the clutter. If you have some empty tissue boxes lying around this quick and easy storage solution is perfect for you! Just a little glue and fabric and these aren't simply helpful, but cute too!
I needed space on my kitchen counter so I used a couple of old microwave plates, some DVD's, glue, grout and resin to seal the whole thing.
I am not sure if this is good news or bad news for you- but we are in the last week of July. You know what that means?? School is just around the corner! Although I don’t have kiddos yet I always love walking the aisles at Target and getting inspired to organize my house. Part of that means getting restock easy and accessible (as well as cute!). I recently just designed my guest bedroom so I figured it was time to get the guest bedroom bathroom snazzy right?Photo Credit Anya McInroy Original Blog Post: http://zestitup.com/diy-belt-bathroom-shelf/
Two of our three Workshop Wednesday segments were in Steph's kitchen. First we shared a look back at our Aspect Peel and Stick backsplash projects. You can see that here on Hometalk. We installed this two weeks ago and have been very pleased with how it has held up.

Even though this is a gingerbread garland , unfortunately it's not the edible kind. A bit like the super cute gingerbread man advent calendar I made this year too!I don't know about you, but as a family we get swamped with cardboard packaging this time of the year. Everyone seems to be doing most of their Christmas shopping on Amazon! I decided to reuse some of the Amazon boxes for a fun festive decoration.
My bathroom vanity is minuscule. A "master" bath and closet were put in the space that would just make a decent closet, or bath, but is way too small for both. The vanity has almost no counter space. I have tried different solutions in the past, but most require resting the vertical storage units on the floor or the vanity. There simply isn't space for most solutions, so I had to think outside the box.
I desired some kind of shelf for my workshop tools, but wasn't really sure what to build. I mean, the sky's the limit where workshops are concerned, and the stuff you buy is usually expensive!
And then I glanced at the pile of junk on the floor, with a pallet sitting right on top. Taunting me to make it into something incredible.
Not one to bypass a good challenge, I flipped that lowly little pallet into a tool storage shelf that I'm so in love with, I wouldn't trade it for anything! Ok, maybe a trip to Hawaii......

Doing laundry is already such a hassle, and tripping over those laundry baskets filled with clothes doesn't make it any more enjoyable.

Hi everyone! I have a new post for you guys, but this one is going to be talking about the one thing we dread the most. Cleaning, more specifically, organizing our home. Listening to Marie Kondo’s “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing”. Inspired me to craft this neat and cute idea from using a basic water bottle, a zipper, and some washi tape.______________________________________________________________________________________________"We have a special treat for Hometalkers today!

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...
Hey there creative people! Who doesn't love a good yard sale overflowing with old useless treasures? I know I sure do! A couple of weeks ago I went to a local neighborhood yard sale where I found a wooden spice rack for a dollar. I thought to myself that I could definitely give it a new life. Normally I would paint something like this, but I wanted to do something different this time around. My creative wheels in my head started to turn and I remembered that I had a beautiful vintage themed floral fabric. I thought with some perforated lace like fabric and some cup hooks that it could become a jewelry organizer.
