Let’s Get Organized

Posted on

Happy Sunday, all!

This week we are at MAGFest, one of my absolute favorite geeky festivals so expect some posts in the coming weeks about any new vendors/cool stuff I’ve found! For today, though, I thought we’d delve into one of those favorite new year’s resolution topics: organization. New year, new you and all that, right? Each of these four DIY projects do involve some wood, power tools, and probably a rather large work space so if you live in an apartment or condo (like me!), plan on sweet talking someone with at least two of those three (preferably the tools and space).

First up is what seems to be the easiest, quickest, and one I am contemplating making for myself: a storage ottoman from Mon Makes Things.

There are so many different ways this can be adapted to your needs!

We’ve really wanted some sort of storage ottoman for our game room and I think with a few tweaks, this could really be great in there! Next up requires a jigsaw! I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned my slight obsession with power tools before but once we finally move into a true house, I plan to stock the garage/workshop with one of everything. Back to the second organizational DIY: a pullout baking sheet drawer from Two Feet First.

I need one of these yesterday!

With as much baking as I do and the amount of baking sheets I have, this would be just wonderful in my cabinets. Third up is for yet another different area of the house, the bathroom. I’m really quite in love with the idea of this one as I’ve wanted a full length mirror somewhere in our condo and haven’t quite been able to make it happen yet. The storage space behind it in this mirror storage case by Shanty 2 Chic is really a bonus:

Who doesn’t love more storage?

Finally, I have saved maybe not the *best* for last but certainly one of the most overlooked areas of our place – the laundry room. This mobile laundry station from Hoosier Homemade is just plain awesome:

Much better than the three sad looking baskets we have stacked inside each other at the moment.

I like the idea of being able to use the top as either more storage for your laundry detergents or as a folding space. So there you have it, let’s start the year off right by getting a little more organized.

Stay crafty!
