There are certain items in a DIYers toolkit that seem to become staples over time. One of those items for me is dowel rods. I love the versatility of dowel rods, and how they can provide solutions to many of our household problems. So, I thought I would compile a selection of some of my favorite ways to use dowel rods. I hope that it inspires some great DIY projects for you!
When people come to my house for the first time, they often inquire about my custom area under my stairways. Typically, they love the idea of having something in that wasted space, and they want to know how to do it. Well, I find that to be a loaded question most of the time. Because every stairway presents its own potential for problems, one answer doesn’t always fit all. However, I can show you how to add storage under stairways even when you have a few obstacles to deal with.
I have this closet that I have been ignoring for a while. It is connected to my studio and editing room, so I have been using it for storage. However, up until now, it had just been a small room crammed full of junk. Well, I finally got around to cleaning it out, and decided that I really should finish it out as an actual closet. The problem was that I didn’t want to spend the money for a system in a closet that will not see very much use. So, rather than go out and purchase a kit, I decided to use some left over melamine boards to make my own easy DIY closet system.
