Okay…I know I’m not alone. Everyone loves to have plenty of closet space, correct? Honest truth is pretty much no one wants to clean them. (yes, I’m pointing at you. tee hee) Today, I’m going to show you how to refresh, organize and get a deep down closet spring cleaning. Yes, it can be done AND even be fun. This is my closet “before” that is about to explode with dirty laundry and all!
Are you always look for extra ways to store things? It seems as though there is always room for improvement in the area of storage in the average home. I like to try to make better use of what I already have too. It can even be as simple as finding new purpose for a spot in our home. When I spied this message center at the thrift store I had no idea that it would lead me to create entry storage.
It was kinda like if you give a mouse a cookie story (much like my patio makeover), except this is the thrifted message center sort of ballooning project. The idea was to show you how to get organized, but then it grew and I’m so happy it did because here is what I did with it…
Do you ever find yourself saying, “I wish I had more storage space”? Finding ways to add more storage space is always in demand, and this DIY tutorial is going to help you create a very versatile piece for your home. The best part is that once you build this wooden storage bin, you will have the ability to recreate it again and again making use of it in ever so many ways.
For this project, I am creating a storage bin for my kitchen since we are in the middle of a remodel. I, for one, am tired of having my counter look like this when we are trying to either ripen our fruits or just don’t have anywhere to put our goods. Can you blame me?

Ready to get started building one of your own? You can build this in as many tiers as you want, and even mount it to the wall. Mix it up and add legs or feet to create a different style of bin. Have fun with it!
Sometimes things don’t always go as planned, but they eventually turn out right or even better than planned, right? I am debuting my Christmas present today, one month late. tsk. You see, my husband had but one request from me for a gift. I wanted a DIY workbench that would allow me to not only store all my tools, but also be mobile and have an awesome work surface to boot. Not too tall an order, right?
Things were going as planned until we all got sick the week before Christmas, and then life goes on and it takes awhile to get back on course. So, FINALLY I can say I have my gift that both my husband and I can enjoy. I am one happy junkin’ mama. (yes, it is 20 degrees outside, sunny, and a great day to work! This is how I always look.)
Last winter I began a mission to dejunk my garage (aka my workshop). I am not a clutter bug and while I was pregnant I couldn’t work and my work piled up, literally.
Not long ago, I shared a picture on Facebook that really went crazy. It wasn’t of a furniture piece I had thrifted and refinished, or of a DIY room remodel. Nope. It was a picture of my sewing fabric storage.
My sewing space has been an evolving process and is always being tweaked to suit me better. Rarely these days do I get much of a chance to sit in my hallowed nook, but on occasion I make time to do what I love. SEW!
