Magnetic knife racks are an excellent way to save space in the kitchen, but you might not realize that they’re great for organizing far more than just knives. After finding all of these creative magnetic knife strip organizing ideas, now I want to add a few to practically every room in my house.
As fun as jewelry is to collect and wear, it can be tricky to figure out how to store all your pieces. If you're not careful, it can too easily turn into clutter. Home organization stores would love to convince you to run out and spend tons of money on jewelry organizers and storage. But if you're willing to get a bit crafty, you can easily make your own DIY jewelry organizer or holder to store your jewelry in style. Continue Reading
Anyone who knows me knows I'm ALL about organization. When you live in small spaces, organization is the key to maximizing space and keeping your home feeling decluttered. One of the most cluttered areas of my home tends to be my entryway, so I decorated a simple box to create this wood box hook display for catching keys, sunglasses and other small items that normally end up cluttering the table!
This box is about 8.5 inches wide, which was perfect for this small wall next to our entryway table. Continue Reading
I don't know about you, but I'll take all the help I can get in the organization department. And the refrigerator seemed like the perfect place for an organizational hub – the kitchen is where people tend to congregate, so it's the most logical place to keep lists, cards, etc. Click through to check out my full tutorial.
This organizer combines a chalkboard (a pink one!), a hook for keys and a set of clothespins to clip business cards and invitations – all on a bulletin board covered with fun fabric. Continue Reading
As wonderfully functional as scotch tape is, it just doesn’t do it for me in the aesthetic department. It didn’t do much for Landee either, so she came up with her own solution to displaying calendars and child art. Isn’t sheet metal the most convenient thing ever? Well, I’m sure there are other things more useful than sheet metal, but for organization purposes it gets 5 stars from me. Landee of Landee See Landee Do attached a large piece to the wall and went magnet crazy on everything to get the organized life she wanted. Continue Reading
A little turquoise spray paint, some brass hooks (for feet) and an old kitchen grater makes for a kitschy and cool earring holder. Unconventional, yes, but we LOVE unconventional earring/jewelry holders here at Curbly. A perusual into our coffers is evidence of such.
Anyone who lives near a university or remembers their own college days can attest to the massive amounts of furniture that sit curbside during early summer. I happen to live near one of the country’s biggest, which possesses a huge post-graduate population, and thus lots of transitions year round. On any given week, you can expect to find an entire room’s worth of furnishing within a few blocks.
Of course, most of it is trashed and cheap laminate covered particleboard, but every once in a while, there are the gems. Continue Reading
Maybe you have an old crib collecting dust, or maybe you see them all the time at tag sales. Whichever, this is a great way to give them new purpose: Turn them into office organizers.
To get your project started you’ll need: an old crib spring a metal saw screws 1″ x 2″ (These are needed if you are going to make your own frame, however, you could just as easily get your hands on an old, flat wooden frame and use that instead.) Continue Reading
I cringe everytime I put a cereal box in the recycling bin. Sure, it’s better than tossing it in the trash, but there’s such stiff yet pliable material in my hands, yet at that moment, I’m not clever enough to come up with a project for its re-use. Luckily, someone else is (though I bet it wasn’t the mogul herself)…
Large, sturdy cereal box
Simply cut the box to the desired shape, spray with adhesive, then apply paper. Continue Reading
