Desk organizer lazy susan

January always brings on the urge to de-clutter and organize.  This cute desk organizer lazy susan was the perfect start to getting my desk in order and it’s a simple build made entirely with scrap wood!

Good morning my friends!

Happy 2021 (I hope) – or at the very least – Happy fresh start!

It’s a new year – with vaccines a reality!!  

I’ve also consumed just about all of the Holiday treats in my fridge, so just having those gone will constitute […]

Face Mask Storage Rack

Looking for a way to organize face masks for easy grab-and-go, or home-and-remove?  Today I’m showing a simple mask storage rack you can make using dollar store items!

Good morning, good morning!!

I’m in a GREAT mood today – which is actually quite contrary to my cranky week.

Maybe it’s the Fall weather, maybe it’s that my window box over my garage is looking so spectacular (I think anyways) or maybe it’s because I’ve (finally) finished SO MANY outstanding projects that a weight […]

Freestanding coat rack with shelves

You don’t need to have a fancy mudroom or a lot of space to keep kids’ gear organized and tidy for back-to-school…  this freestanding coat rack with shelves (I’m so excited about the shelves) offers a lot of storage on a very small footprint and the best part is you can build it really inexpensively with these free building plans!

Anyone else geek-out over back-to-school?

Short on space and money, but need extra storage in your bathroom? This easy DIY over-the-toilet shelf is a perfect fit!

Did you know that 4.4 million Canadians rent their home?

In the U.S., roughly 36% of the population live in rental units.

That’s a LOT!

I have nothing against rental units other than that you can’t go to town DIYing everything – particularly permanent fixtures – without approval beforehand, or loss of your security deposit afterwards.

Kind of a bummer for someone that likes […]

#OrganizeThis – Small parts bins

Get your workshop organized without breaking the bank by making your own small parts bins to house screws, nails, bolts, and hardware – better still, attach them with a french cleat system for easy removal and return.

Good morning everyone!

It’s a GREAT morning – mainly because I’m part of a group challenge today called #OrganizeThis.  Seventeen of the best DIY Bloggers in the business were put to the challenge to organize an area of their home that has become out of […]

One set of building plans to create behind-the-door storage for anywhere in your home. I created extra bathroom storage for my tweens and a gift wrap storage solution for my office. Use that wasted space with this simple build.

Do you have storage and organization issues?

Like more stuff than space?

I think everyone (except maybe Mari Kondo) does. We all want to be tidy and organized, but “stuff” takes over and clutter everything up. If you are struggling to […]
