Kick Up Your Heels

Shoes hanging from wall-mounted moulding

Here's a simple solution to a messy pile of pumps. Paint and hang moulding on a wall or in a closet to create a display that shows off your best shoes -- and gets them off the floor.

 

Tie It Right

Ties hanging from towel holder

Don't leave those ties in a drawer to crumple and crimp. Use a paper towel holder to hang ties in an easy-access spot. The holder is compact enough to fit in any closet.

 

Branch Accessories

Tree jewelry holder

Make a jewelry tree out of square dowels cut to random lengths for about $14 plus paint. Glue and attach the tree to a base made of a post cap and a piece of tile.

 

Raise the Bar

Spray bottles and towel on tension rod

Get more space out of a cramped cabinet by installing a tension rod inside.

 

Rack Your Brain

Dish holder rack with decorative folders

Organize paperwork and create a handy pouch for mail, notepaper, pens, and pencils with a nail apron tied to one end of a dish rack. The rack works well on a desk or counter to hold file folders.

 

Slide and Glide

Cabinet with slide-out organizer

Store cleaning supplies in a base cabinet customized with a glide-out shelf. Paint a metal pail to make a colorful caddy for cleaning gear.

 

Storage with Charm

Underbed rolling drawers

Revive old drawers with a light sanding and fresh paint (the drawer outsides are painted Valspar Signature Greenhouse Tint, #6002-5C, the insides in Summer Rapture, #6002-5A.) Attach casters and the drawers are easy to roll under the bed.
