25 Stylish DIY Storage Makeovers

25 Stylish DIY Storage Makeovers

Yes, I’ve installed a giant peg board in my hallway. My style resolutions for 2013 are to 1) organize my jewelry and 2) wear more accessories. So my plan is to “check the board” before heading out the door. That way I can quickly put on a necklace or grab a scarf (and tie it my favorite way). I used cute knobs that I found on sale at Hobby Lobby – now I just need to buy about a dozen more to fill up the board!

    I drop a comment each time I like a article on a blog or if
    I have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it’s a result of the sincerness communicated in the
    article I read. And after this article 25 Stylish DIY Storage Makeovers – Henry Happened.
    I was actually excited enough to drop a commenta response :) I do
    have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it
    be only me or do some of these remarks come across like they
    are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I’d like
    to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you list all of
    your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    Those are very beautiful storage! My personal favorite is the giant peg board, it looks very neat and it can organize a lot of accessories! Thanks for sharing this idea! :-)

      Thank you Beckie! I’m loving my giant peg board – it’s super handy to have back the back door because you can hang/store tons of stuff!

    great collection of ideas!!! I loved exploring the other sites too….and there went my morning!
    Jewelry dispay idea I spotted somewhere: take a small wire mesh wastebasket, turn it upside down and put it on a lazy susan and hang earrings on the wire mesh!

    • gerbermom says

      What a good idea – my earrings are so disorganized. Tho I might have to spray paint it first so it looks a little less industrial :)

    I love the scarf organizer idea. I had some left over curtain rings I was going to throw out but now I can use them for my scarves.

    Thank you!

    Ooh, thanks for posting this- I have finally come to terms with the fact that I’ll be living in rented apartments for the foreseeable future and am feeling like I need ways to make my places feel more “me”…. without making any permanent changes to the apartment. There’s some great ideas here to start!

    These tips are FABULOUS! I love your idea of “checking the board” before you head out the door. That’s honestly the absolute best way to do it. You don’t have to go hunting for anything. It’s right in front of your face so there are no excuses. LOVE!

    The rest of the ideas are pretty fab too. I’ve been storing my scarves on a hanger with shower curtain rings and I’ve corralled all of my nail polish into a shoe box inside a drawer. I think the next one on this list that I’ll tackle is using ladders as a display. So cool!

    • gerbermom says

      Yep, if it means I have to all the way back upstairs to get a scarf I won’t bother – this has made it so much easier!
