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!
Regardless of what type of shelves that you have, whether they are built-in bookshelves, closet shelves, or kitchen cabinet shelves, it is always a good idea to have them to be adjustable. Adjustable shelves make it possible to customize your space to allow for very tall items or very small items. It also makes it possible to quickly add additional shelves. If you have ever wondered how to make shelves adjustable, the good news is that it is not hard at all!
Crates are a lot like wicker baskets. You can never have too many, and they are perfect for providing quick and easy storage. They also can serve as an addition to your home decor. You can find them in just about any home goods store. But, if you choose to make your own, you can dictate the strength and the design of the crate. And as luck would have it, crates are quite easy to make. To demonstrate how to build simple crates, I will use a few of my images to break the process down for you.
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.
