Washi Tape Organizer DIY

Washi Tape Organizer DIY

Hello y’all! Welcome to this lovely day where I get to share my latest repurpose/ recycle/ salvage/ junking project with you. Today’s project is both lovely and useful!   This washi tape organizer DIY project is perfect for your craft room. Repurpose a wooden wine box and create this easy and super useful washi tape storage.   I did a washi tape organizer DIY project, using materials I had on hand. No money was exchanged in the making of this project and only materials that would otherwise have been thrown away were used. So a true salvage style project me thinks. Speaking of Salvage Style Projects….. It is Salvage Style Party day!   Salvage Style Button

If you are the kind of recipe collector that writes them all down on neat index cards and categorizes them by ingredient and dinner course, then I tip my hat to you.

I am not that organized when it comes to my favorite family recipes. But I have a few truly vintage recipes that I want to keep safe and easy to use. In my current system chaos, I was bound to lose or damage them

How to Make a Jewelry Organizer (super easy DIY)

How to Make a Jewelry Organizer (super easy DIY)

Organize your earrings, necklaces, and rings with a DIY jewelry organizer made from a thrift store frame and a piece of leftover fabric. Let’s make a wall-mounted jewelry holder that’s both functional and pretty.

I’ve recently been on a thrift store scavenger hunt; the last one was particularly successful. I found an old, beat-up, empty wooden frame with a nice, simple floral design in the corners that was just waiting for a new purpose in life. I decided that this old picture frame would be perfect to help me fix a disorganized and tangled-up mess and install some order back into my life.

So I set out to make a DIY

I made a creative his and hers key holder for our entryway hall and I am loving it! It is totally personalized and unique for us, not to mention very functional and useful. This was a fun craft project to do. And it only took me a small afternoon from start to finish.

What I love even more is that this wooden key holder is not only super useful but is a decoration for our entryway, too. We have had it up for a few days now, and we already got lots of comments from guests who are checking out the images I used.

But sometimes it is hard to feel good about my home, especially when it is a big mess. When there are no clear surfaces, when I have trouble closing my junk drawer, when stuff starts to fall out of my closet, then I become an irritable, grouchy, not-at-all fun person to live with.

I strongly believe in good old sayings like “for everything a place and everything in its place”, because I know that when the mess around me accumulates so does the stuffiness and moodiness in my

In my first Heap of Change post I showed you how I created more storage space under the sloped roof of my attic landing. It has been working great.
