    Thank you for all the great ideas, It makes me want to organize every little thing in my house! I love all the pretty colors used too!

  2. Sarah says:

    Love these ideas!

  3. Cyndi says:

    if you put yarn in your wine rack, where do you store all your wine? lol… ;-)

  4. yvette says:

    love these ideas!! I am going to implement some soon!!

  5. Tracy says:

    Great ideas! I love the tin can art supply storage. I could probably figure it out by myself but the HGTV link seems to be dead :( It brings me to the picture but once I click on the ‘click here for project details’ link it is nowhere to be found.

  6. Candice says:

    Hi I was just wondering where you can locate those awesome pant hangers for the ribbon rolls. Love the wonderful idea!!!!!!!!!

  7. Barbara says:

    Love the ribbon hanger organizer. Can you tell me where you found the pants hanger you used? thanks.

  8. Kathryn says:

    I bought a pants hanger like that from Bed Bath and Beyond. Bring your coup!

  9. Lauren says:

    Where can I find a wire hamper to put the stuffed animals? Love this idea. Having a hard time finding something similar.

  10. Ally says:

    Awesome ideas! I already use a couple of them: I use mason jars in the bathrooms to hold cottonballs and qtips and such; and I use magnetic knife strips in the garage to hold my paint brushes, and in the office to keep various supplies. But I am so gonna use that rail system for plastic bins…that is genious! Love the cutlery trays for jewelry, and the pants hanger for ribbon.

  11. jessie says:

    The car organizer/knife magnet is a great idea, except most hot wheels are all plastic now. Dang!

  12. Lola/Cabeza de Nispero says:

    Oh my god!!!

    kissssss from Valencia… Spain!!!

    Lola –

  13. Robin says:

    Thank you so much for this post!! It is just what I needed to organize my craft room.

  14. The One True Sue says:

    Why ruin a perfectly good hanger to use it for chips? Just use a binder clip.

  15. Tina Noble says:

    looking for the directions for the chicken wire frames.

  16. Katie says:

    I don’t ever want to hang out with anyone who stores yarn on a wine rack.

  17. I have seen many creative and practical storage ideas in blogland but there are a few new ones here, like the tin cans concept and the hanging jewelry tray. We consume so many canned food on a monthly basis, so that will be quite an amount of savings we will reap for our pencils and stationary storage solutions. I think kids will enjoy such creative storage ideas too for all their art and crafts or even toys.

  18. Nancy says:

    I wouldn’t ruin a good pants hanger either, but they do break sometimes! :)

  19. evelyn says:

    i would really like to know how to do the boxes as shelves yes i know you paint them but how do you make them sturdily stay to the wall
