5 Quick Fixes: Easy Weekend Storage Projects

We’re not carpenters here at Remodelista, but we tackled each of these DIYs ourselves in response to a niggling problem, such as a front-entry shoe pileup, ugly electrical cords, and an unwieldy storage closet. Take notes from us: Here are the top 5 storage and organization projects from our Remodelista Weekend Project Hall of Fame.

1. Tackle Your Cord Tangle

3. Tie Your Own Shower Curtain Rings

Sarah puts leather lace to all sorts of uses, from napkin ties to Shower Curtain Rings (to replace the plastic ones in her guest bath). Read her 10 Tips for How to Transform a Rental Bath and see the rest of her house in Sarah’s Refined Rental.

4. Rig Your Own Utility Closet

Myles and his wife were “stoked” to finally have their own washing machine and dryer, but they didn’t want to look at it–so he built the $65 Laundry Closet, Renter’s Edition.

5. Sort the Storage Closet Using Trays

Meredith tackled her hallway storage closet in one weekend, and finally whipped the hardware drawer, garden tools, and cleaning supplies into shape. She used trays for the soaps—especially important since they can leak. See the rest in Remodeling Project: The Storage Closet Reinvented.
