Minimalist Ikea Hack :Poppytalk
As soon as I saw this great little shelf made of two Ikea spice racks and two leather belts, I was instantly reminded of the leather belt/clock marriage. It seems for a good reason, it was a photo from the same blogger (Poppytalk), now conveniently in one blog post.

Obsolete Crib to Functional Set of Shelves | Apartment Therapy
Wow. I have torn apart cribs for storage before but this is great. No tearing apart. Just reenforcing and repainting. I know that new cribs are much deeper than this, but I still think it would work for bulky storage…maybe?

My New Studio Space!

You may have noticed that things have been quiet around here, and some have you may have noticed that before it got quiet I was posting mostly about sewing and craft room organization. There was a good reason for both of those things. We were moving into a new house, and in this house is a bigger studio than I have ever had. Ever. For serious ever. I wanted it to be brilliantly organized and equally brilliantly decorated. I think I accomplished both of those things. :)

Here are a couple photos from a blog post I did at Modern Wednesday about the new space. There is a lack of close up shots, but that is because I need a day with great light. But the post still has seven photos that I think are darling!

I am so excited to begin creating a fall line for Modern Wednesday goodness in this space. But first, I have to finish organizing every room but my kitchen and bathroom. Good thing I’m also known as The Storage Geek. ;)

DIY Kitchen Organizer - C.R.A.F.T.
Paint a bi-fold door and add some hooks and you have  very chic kitchen organizer. I like this idea, particularly the colour blocking and diagonal magnetic knife block. Also, while shutters can be hard to find, louvred bi-fold doors are a dime a dozen. See more photos at Create Really Awesome Free Things (C.R.A.F.T.).
