  1. You always offer up the coolest images!!!
    Thanks! (My home should look so good!)

  2. Some great ideas here. That upside-down chair-towel rack is the most ingenious use of an old chair I have ever seen.

  3. I love the ladder! It's just so extremely chic and country style, not to mention recycling.

  4. Hey guys! to be honest with you , I love them ALL! I'm actually planning to try some during the weekends.. I'll tell you how it goes!

  5. Love love LOVE! I didn't think it could get better after the completely awesome coat rack, but they are ALL amazing ideas. I'm with Hilary - the chair one blew me away. As soon as I saw that, I copied this URL and emailed it to my sister and mom. :)

  6. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  7. These pictures are wonderful. Organization doesn't have to be all stuffy and analytical. It CAN be pretty, too!

  8. We've just constructed our house through kits for do-it-yourself houses. We're currently on the designing phase now and I'm really inspired by these home organization DIY. I'll certainly make some of these for our house.
