8 DIY Projects To Keep Your Home Organized In 2014

It’s a common New Year’s resolution that’s tricky to complete: staying organized. A busy life can make it seem impossible to keep things tidy, especially when it comes to your living space. Fortunately, de-cluttering is a lot easier with these DIY upcycled storage solutions for every room in your home. They’ll help you get organized—and stay that way all year long. Plus, the materials you need for each project can be found right at ReStore!



If your bedroom is tight on space, a floating night stand is a great way to get more storage room while keeping extra furniture off your floor.






To create extra storage for all your bathroom bottles and keep clutter off countertops, upcycle an old CD tower into a convenient counter top shelf.







Free up some room in your cupboards and drawers when you turn an old door into a handy kitchen organizer for your pots and pans.



Tired of digging through disorganized stacks of canned food? Keep those cans in line with a labeled, homemade can dispenser for your pantry.








Living room

For a fun storage piece that you can also rest your feet on, try making a charming rolling ottoman that holds books, games and more.


Laundry room

Turn an old entertainment center into a functional laundry station  that’s perfect for holding hampers, detergent and a drying rack.



A decorative old window is the perfect addition to a new foyer table. Keep mail, keys and more where they belong so you can grab what you need and go.







Who knew a bookshelf could be so functional? Upcycle an old one into this mudroom bench full of cubbies for kids’ shoes and accessories.
