I truly believe that base cabinets were placed on earth as some cosmic joke. Well, maybe it’s not that extreme, but it certainly is aggravating to try to store things in them. You either end up with everything right at the front and a ton of wasted space in the back, or you have to take everything out anytime that you need something. Adding drawers is the solution, but so many people tell me that while they love DIYing, they just don’t have the skills or tools to do something so drastic. However, there is an easy way to add pull-out drawers to bottom cabinets, and I am going to show you exactly how!
I have mentioned a few times, over the past month, that I have been working on my office/studio. I almost have everything exactly the way that I want it, except for the fact that I could use a bit more organization. I have so many magazines and binders that I need to keep, but as you know, magazines can cause a very cluttered looking design. Well, there was nothing for me to do but to get busy assembling some holders, but it makes for a good post! So, let me show you how to make magazine holders in a simple and easy fashion!
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.
Being a DIYing, organizing, obsessed, type person, I can really appreciate high quality, storage and organizing home products from other DIYers. That’s one of the reasons why I love shopping on Etsy. There is a whole world of handcrafted products just waiting to solve my home’s detailing needs. When I am looking to buy something customized or unique, it is one of the first places that I visit. So, today I thought that I would share with you these 8 wonderful finds!
One of my favorite places to shop for home storage and organizing products is the Container Store. They are right up there with Ikea, as far as I am concerned, when it comes to budget friendly items. I started shopping with them long before I started this blog, and I continue to pick up great quality items from them to this day. So, I thought that I would let you in on what I think of as their best kitchen gadgets for this year.
