Spring Cleaning D.I.Y Ideas

Spring means time for spring cleaning & high time to make those dreams of organized bliss come to fruition! Living in a creative home, you probably know that documents, clothes and craft supplies don’t organize themselves…To get things sorted out and organized you need to set a storage infrastructure! I’ve gathered a bunch of DIY ideas & tutorials to get you started, here they are:

Organize important documents and odd bits in an orderly yet colorful way! Let the Rainbow Organizer, made from 7 Ikea ”Mackis” with painted fronts, inspire you! DIY idea from here!

Old tin cans are excellent for organizing odd bits around the house, your craft stash in particular! via Bhg.com & via here

 Everyday organizing becomes a lot easier if you have lots of hooks around your space! Why not grab some old wooden toy blocks to recreate these stylish hooks in no time! via here

 Hallways and bedroom are often messy due to clothes…Why not organize your hallway or that corner of your bedroom with a D.I.Y rolling clothes rack? This yellow piece of eye candy was brought to you by awesome blogger Heather of  HrrrThrrr, which features full DIY tutorial!
