I love organizing. I also love DIY projects. There is so much satisfaction in both. So, when a group of blogger friends got together this month to for a “build to organize” challenge, I was all in!
If you missed the original post, you can view it here. In this post, I’ve rounded up a selection of projects from that original challenge. The projects that I have linked here are DIYs that would provide your home with significant extra storage, in multiple different areas.
So, let’s get to it.
1. Closet Organization
We put a full closet system in our master closet a few years ago, and we love it. It is so helpful in keeping things organized, and it looks fantastic, as well.
When we did it, we purchased a pre-made closet system that we simply had to install. But these amazing bloggers built their own closet systems!
This one from Christine at Pinspired to DIY is gorgeous, and the pop of teal in the storage bins is just perfect.
This system from Megan at Two Feet First is pretty and functional. It adds so much space and organization.
I love these closet shelves from Christine at DIY Dreamer. They are customizable and movable. So, if you need to switch things up at some point, it’s no problem. Plus, I love the look of the unfinished wood.
Don’t have a garage? No problem. Carmen from Living Letter Home has come up with the perfect storage solution for all of your tools.
2. Shelf Space
I have really come to love shelves lately. I’ve been putting various shelves all over my house, and I’m finding it somewhat addicting. They provide great storage and organization options, as well as being stylish and decorative.
These floating shelves that Lindsay from Shrimp Salad Circus put in her basement are just gorgeous. And look at all of that beautiful storage/organization/decor space. Love!
These box shelves were my own personal project for this challenge, and I absolutely love them. They have helped to organize our hall bath, and were truly easy to put together.
I love the creativity of these swing out shelves from Eileen at Just Measuring Up. Eileen likes to use every square inch of space in her house, and these shelves do just that.
Who couldn’t use extra storage space in their garage? These narrow shelves are so perfect for the garage, I may need to make some for myself! Head over to Savvy Apron for the tutorial.
Finally, I love a piece of furniture that can also serve to help organize my house. I’m always searching for pieces that will allow me to organize my space and look stylish at the same time.
This storage bench from Kourtni at House on Longwood Lane is perfection. She’s using it to help store her daughter’s toys, which seriously has me looking for a space in my own house for one of these.
I’ve always loved the look of hall trees, and this one from Christina over at The Frugal Homemaker is no exception. I wish I had a place for something like this in my own home!
I love the modern look of this side table from Southern Revivals. She built it for her teenage sons bedroom, but it is so versatile, it could be used anywhere. Plus, it was incredibly simple to put together.
Lastly, this toy shelf from Tylynn at Bitterroot DIY is speaking my love language. It is so simple, yet so functional. It provides organization for mom and easy access for kids. Win-win!
So, there you have it. DIY organization ideas for your entire home. I hope you’ve been inspired to start building and organizing.
Which one is your favorite?
