Shoe Rack

How many pairs of shoes do you have? Too many to count? The shoe rack by our front door is filled to overflowing. The closets too. (I think my husband is more a fan of fancy footwear than I am!) Maybe it’s time for a new shoe rack. You too? Check out this one from Home Made Simple. Amy walks us through making a simple shoe rack out of PVC pipe that will sure to be a space saver.

Their aren’t a lot of materials needed for this DIY. I love to hear that! You need PVC pipe and PVC glue, some clamps, and spray paint. You should also find some gloves. That glue is strong and nobody wants to glue their fingers together. Pipe is pretty affordable and the hardware store will cut it for you (the pieces in the video are 10 inches long).

Once you have all your supplies you have to decide on your design, glue the pieces together, wait for the rack to dry, and then paint it. I think the inside and edges should be painted too to give it a more ‘finished’ look. This DIY peaked my interest and here are some other PVP pipe crafts that I found.

Here’s the tutorial video… Enjoy!

For many of us, organizing and finding space can often be a challenge. In this post we bring you some great tips on how to keep your closet and dresser organized and still stay stylish.

Shoes

How many pairs of shoes do you have? I doubt very few of us would say less than five. There are just so many options… boots, flip flops, slippers, sneakers, heels, flats, etc. They just pile up and there never seems to be enough storage space for them. This roundup from Fantastic Viewpoint has 16 new and inventive ways to store your shoes.

My shoes are currently on the floor of my closet. Some in boxes but most just haphazardly strewn about. I could really use some of these ideas and I’m sure my husband would appreciate the walking room. I like number 7 a lot. Number 1 too. Vintage boxes stacked haphazardly just looks amazing. The shoe ottoman is pretty great too. Which one is your favorite? All of them? Here are some more DIY shoe rack idea. (Some are duplicated but not all of them.)

Storage

Diply has the best roundup! It’s perfect for those of us with tiny spaces filled with too much stuff. These 16 ideas are all about saving room and organizing in homes that are tight on space. Whether you have the biggest house on the block or yours is itty bitty… there is something here for you!

Some of these ideas are great and others just aren’t for me. Number three would block the view of my yard and I wouldn’t be able to see the kids running around as I did the dishes. Also number four? Not my cup of tea. But I adore the bookcase stairs (number 5) and the under-the-bed storage makes my heart skip a beat (number 11). Love love love. I also really like number 14. Do you have a favorite? Have you tried any of these?

Another way to save space in a small home is by getting rid of clutter. Easier said than done but Family Circle has some tips on where to start. Good luck!

I think I will get the hubby to put that one up this weekend. Number 3 and number 9 are going into my kitchen as soon as I find a cute set of baskets to put in there. One can never have too much storage in the kitchen. I do love my kitchen gadgets! Don’t you?

Nail Polish

What color are you sporting today? Today my nails are a dark purple. The color is called ‘Lacy not Racy.’ How do they come up with such fun color names? I want that job! I have quite a collection of polishes. Every time I go to Target I have to grab a new shade! That means that I have a mess of polishes that needs organizing. I guess it’s a good thing that I found this roundup from Diply. It has eight ways that polish can be stored and organized and they are all pretty brilliant ideas.

I like the bookshelf side storage idea a lot. I don’t know where I would put a shelf in the bathroom and I don’t want my polish displayed in the living room. Lol. The Polish rolls is more my style. The magnetic board is a good idea too because other makeup can be magnetized and it would save a lot of space. Here are some other fun named nail polishes… I love them!

I am so excited to feature this roundup from Diply today. It has 16 ways to organize and overhaul your closet that you simply must see. These life hacks and invaluable tips are going to save you heartache when it comes to that catch-all known as the closet.

Our closet is getting remodeled once we save up the money. Right now there are makeshift shelves and store bought clothes hangers and storage racks but no permanent wall fixtures or cubbies. So annoying! It’s especially difficult to navigate and organize when nothing is permanent but it’s not impossible. I’ve used idea #2, for storing scarves, very helpful. I like #13 a lot! Once we get our permanent shelves I’m going to have to buy some shelf dividers. Aren’t these ideas grand?

If you are needing some help ‘taking control’ of your closet… check out what Target has to offer. I have one of their two-tiered racks and I love it.

Laundry

I am obsessed with my laundry room. That Pinterest board is jam packed with fun ideas and DIYs. There are just so many great possibilities to choose from. I don’t know many people who honestly love doing laundry. Be that as it may, there is no reason that they can’t love the laundry room itself! Mine will be brilliant when done. This roundup from Diply has just a few more fabulous ideas to add to the laundry room inspiration file. They are great.

Number 1 would be wonderful. Did you know that store bought pedestals can run upward of $500? A piece? Building them yourself would be much cheaper! Just be sure that they are sturdy. I have something like number 11, I bought it online, but I haven’t put it up yet. I’m waiting until after I finish painting. I have a change jar too (number 3) but mine isn’t fancy. Now I want it to be! Are any of these going to make it into your laundry room? Here are some more fun laundry room ideas – you can never have too many.
