A few weeks ago we announced the Get Organized Giveaway and asked you to send us your organization projects. Here’s just a few of the entries we’ve gotten so far.
Jan took on a craft room redo after getting tired of not being able to find her punches that no longer fit in one basket, while having piles of beautiful paper scattered, and constantly moving stamp sets that didn’t have a home.
According to Jan she used “graph paper and pencil to visualize an organized space. I took the papers first and sorted the colors, types and patterned styles into 12 x 12 clear plastic boxes. I tackled the punches into a clear shoe organizer over the door of the closet. A friend helped me with a quick style shelf of small random spaces for those stamp verses. The stamp sets got sorted into plastic drawers by occasion (baby, birthday, get well, etc.). Rolling drawer carts fit neatly under the table to store other accessories. My friend also framed out a plastic pegboard to hang some of the tools and the cartridges for my die-cut machine.”
We love how she got creative with the punches by storing them in a clear over the door shoe organizer. The stamp holder on the wall gives the space a real custom look. If you’re tackling a craft room organization project, check out these scrapbook storage containers, these craft storage drawers, and these craft totes.
Rhonda submitted photos from four organization projects including her home office, kids’ closet, pantry, and entry way.
Living in a 1500 sq. ft. home she adores, Rhonda says it’s important to establish order. She worked to stain the bench in the entryway, added jars to the pantry, found a floor model desk for her office, and tearing out old wood in her son’s closet and adding in a pop of blue paint. If you’re looking to do similar projects, you might be able to use some of these pantry organizers and even the DIY closet storage systems on Space Savers.
Sarah sent an entry showing how she built these wooden shoe shelves using old wood from her pantry:
Sarah also organized her closet by putting all of the hangers backwards and turned them around as she used them. After a year, any items that didn’t have the hangers turns around were donated. About the shelves, Sarah says “I started with the bottom shelf 10″ high, the next shelf was 8″ high, the next two were 5″ high, the Next three were 4″ high, the next two were 3″ high. The final shelf is the one at the top. This was an unused section of my closet. It fit most of my shoes. I used a Concord 9 pair Shoe Rack that I already owned for my dress shoes. All of my clothes are neat. All of my shoes are neat, fit and are where I can reach and see them. I love it.”
We’re fans of anyone who can break out their tools to build their own custom shelves. If you want a similar result but don’t have a handyman (or woman!) in the house, give these shoe organizers a try. If you like the look of wood, this wooden shoe rack is made with beautiful mahogany.
