DIY Ideas to Make the Most of Your Home

I’ll be the first to admit that creativity and organization are not my strengths. Fortunately, my wife is great at them. I’m always amazed at how she can take something old and ordinary and repurpose it to be something new. Then one day she shared her secret: Pinterest.

In this blog post I share some easy DIY projects to make your house feel even more like a home.

Home Office

Don’t have space for a home office? A repurposed storage chest is a great place to store files and other supplies. When you’re not using it, just close the top to hide the mess—and it serves as extra seating.

Garage Storage

Apparently you can’t do a DIY blog without including at least one idea for an old pallet. Here’s one for garage storage. Just screw the pallet into your wall studs to create a great space for leftover wood, rakes and brooms. It’s also thin, so it doesn’t take up a lot of space.
