Now that the snow is tapering off and we’re looking at warmer temperatures toward the end of the week, it’s time to tackle those projects you’ve been putting off all winter. This weekend, you can start by adding storage solutions throughout the house. Grab your tool belt, grab a helper and let’s get to work!
In the old days, a bed was strictly for sleeping. But times have changed and now you can use it as a storage solution as well. Create 2-3 cubbies that span the length of the bed and place them on either side underneath your bed’s platform frame.
Bring Back The Coat Rack
Running out of space in the closet? Hate seeing coats hanging on the back of chairs or sprawled out on the couch? A coat rack is the perfect solution for you. Keep hats, coats and scarves out of the way so you have more room for activities.
Why battle for space in the kitchen when you can build a tall slender cocktail hutch in the living- or dining room instead? Add a place to hang glasses at the top, a shelf for liquor bottles in the middle and a an area to store wine bottles at the bottom. After your long weekend building, this may be the first thing you put to use.
Retire The Canvas Laundry Sack
There’s no reason to keep using that old laundry bag. With a few pieces of wood, you can create a modern-looking hamper in the bathroom.
Repurpose Old Door Knobs
Looking for a new place to keep bath towels? Why not keep them right in the bathroom itself? You can build a towel rack using old door knobs as the hooks - this way you can keep the vanity clear and free up space in the closet.
