Spring is here.. and usually that phrase is followed by, “it’s time to clean and organize my home”! But, since moving into a studio apartment, cleaning and organizing has a new meaning for me, since we are so short on space! I have no choice but to leverage the space I have! So, to help with creative organization, I partnered with my friends at Kreg and BuildSomething.com to create custom rolling bins to store my shoes… and you can to! Even better, if you’re looking to start a new hobby this Spring, this a great build for beginner woodworkers!
Although it doesn’t feel like it in New York right now, spring is on its way! That means it’s time to start prepping our homes for warmer weather. Luckily, I’ve partnered with my friends at WD-40 to show you 5 easy ways to prep your home for spring. Spring cleaning has never been so easy.
My other half and I have been living in our 325 square foot apartment for a year and a half… but we just now realized that we don’t have any storage for our every day sneakers! So, when my friends at Kreg asked me to partner on a project for Build Something’s website, I jumped at the opportunity to make us a West Elm inspired rustic-industrial style shoe rack for our apartment. This project cost me around $30 in material, and took one day to make! Not too bad for a functional piece of furniture!
I love my small studio apartment, but living in a small space means that we don’t have many options for displaying our keepsakes, especially during holiday season! So, I was so excited when my friends at The Home Depot asked me to design a holiday inspired shelf for their winter DIY Workshop! For this project, I decided to keep things bohemian and simple with a triangle shaped keepsake shelf! Best part, you can make one on your own at your local Home Depot’s FREE DIY Workshop (you can sign up here to secure your spot)!
