This may be specific to our home and isn’t all that common. It’s the first house I’ve ever lived in with a closet with no floor. So in the event that you happen to have this annoying waste of space in your closet too, I’m sharing easy this idea for creating an organized space for wrapping paper storage. Finally…a purpose!
It’s in one of our guest rooms. See the closet turned craft space here. I love that it’s handy and organized. I love that my rolls of wrapping paper aren’t crinkled and torn or scattered around the house forgotten.
I removed the rod for hanging clothes and added shelves for storage earlier this year but the angled floor from the staircase to the basement below is annoying. Here’s what I did:
I placed the rod I removed below. It’s just sitting there to support my rolls of wrapping paper. Brilliant, right? No rod? How about a piece of scrap wood? PVC pipe? A broken broom handle? And actually, I don’t really even need a support since the door frame could hold in my rolls of wrapping paper.
Okay, so not saving the world or anything but it is a happy little space-saving idea! Am I the only one with this sort of closet floor or does your home possess the same awkward space?
The Michaels’ Makers’ February challenge has an “express yourself” theme with a campaign called Made by Me, A to Z and it’s all about personalization, showcasing projects that take raw materials and transform them into something that’s completely personalized. The new Make Market line includes materials from galvanized metal to distressed wood, acrylic, fabric and chalkboard! Something for everyone … or even everything for someone. There’s so crafting goodness to choose from, it’s hard to decide!
I treasure little one’s creations, artwork and photos so I decided to personalize a space in the nursery for displaying his art work and photos.
Here’s what I snagged from the Alphabet Soup collection in the Make Market aisle at Michaels:
I personalized a galvanized magnetic memo board with vibrant paint colors to match the nursery decor…
the magnets are so cute!
And added magnets to the back of F-U-N chalkboard letters for displaying on galvanized chargers/plates. These will work for magnetic play time in the future too.
Cute, colorful, personal and custom to our nursery (future playroom)…
My favorite part about crafting is putting a personalized spin on a project. Whether it’s decorating with marquee lights or crafting an initial that represents your family name, Michaels has made it easy with their new Alphabet Soup by Make Market™ line of products. SO MANY DIFFERENT LETTERS!
This collection of surfaces, letters, frames and more come in modern, eclectic or rustic styles. From natural and finished woods, to a variety of metals, resin and patterned styles, the possibilities are endless.

Happy New Year, DIY Friends! Kicking off 2016 with a DIY organization challenge!
Every January, I find myself wanting to declutter and get organized around the house. I do have a craft room upstairs that acts more as a storage room because I find that I prefer crafting on the dining room table. I’m more productive when I’m working where things are going on which inspired creating a craft closet in the guest room right off the dining room.
I emptied the closet full of forgotten and unworn coats and added some shelves.
I still want to paint but my favorite part was shopping Michaels newly launched line of storage and organization products called Cre8ted Spaces available in stores now. Tons of different colors, bins and office supplies – with more than 300 new items in 4 coordinating colors. You have to check it out!
As a part of the Michaels’ Makers January DIY Organizational Challenge, an unused closet makes crafting on our main floor in the dining room with my most used craft supplies for essential oil business and gifts so much easier, making working more enjoyable!
I LOVE the gorgeous color and that there are so many fun different boxes, drawers, baskets and pencil cups to hold and organize my supplies.
