Creative Crafting Board
As a crochet business owner, it was time for user nickname712345 to come up with a new yarn storage plan. “Piling the yarn in a box wasn’t cutting it because I couldn’t see what I had,” the Las Vegas resident says. The homeowner hung yarn on pegboard using hooks to make supplies more accessible, and then added moulding and paint for style.
Simple, Smart Shelving
When user BowerPower’s desk became a drop zone for everything from coupons to receipts, the homeowner needed to get organized. “I decided to get some skewed shelves to give it a distinct look,” she says. The new shelves gave her desk clean lines and extra storage space.
Pet Supply Station
A lack of organization for a furry friend prompted this New York resident to create a spot for dog supplies. With a little help, user prpub1 got a storage shelf and hooks, as well as a custom art piece. “Based on a photo my mom took, she hand-painted the face of my dog, Pumpkin,” the homeowner says.
Sleek Wine Rack
User sjsak1’s thoughtful gift for his wife offered a stylish storage solution for her favorite wines. “I ran across this plan and decided to surprise her as she was out of town,” he says. Wood shelves and pegs keep the bottles organized and in place, while an applique on the backboard adds a nice accent.
Laundry Storage Update
Although amandamae04’s laundry room had plenty of room for storage, the space wasn’t being utilized. Her solution for organizing the room was simple. “We went to Lowe’s for the cabinet, and it was super-easy to install!” she says. The cabinet hides laundry supplies, while baskets keep small items like lightbulbs and batteries contained.
