Large DIY Metal Pegboard Command Center

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you enjoyed your weekend!

We are still knee deep in snow, and I haven't seen signs of it going away anytime soon.  My kids are loving all the HUGE icicles around town.  I guess winter had to arrive eventually.  I am good with it...as long as it goes away in time for spring!  

I have some exciting news to share, I was asked to be a contributor over at Remodelahloic!  Eeeek! I am totally doing a happy dance!  

I will contribute every other month and feel so honored they asked me.  Cassity is awesome and has an amazing team of contributors.  I have to be honest, I am a little star struck.  :)

Today I am sharing my very first post, my Large DIY Metal Pegboard Command Center

The frame on this is my favorite part and you could easily make it any size you want!  FYI, it didn't start as a command center...the beauty of DIY is that things can evolve....

Please check out the tutorial, and out of curiosity, tell me which version you like better...?  There is a standing debate about it in my house. :)

Oh, and stop by later this week for a fun and easy project!

I hope you are staying warm!

Hugs,
Mindi

Rustic Industrial Kid Chairs

It's Friday and I am happy to share my Rustic Industrial Kid Chairs with you!  On Monday I showed you my Cabinet doors into Children's Desk, and these are what I built to go with it.

I also shared these chairs first at My Repurposed Life where I contribute twice a month for my good friend Gail.

Cabinet Doors into Children's Desk

Happy President's day!  It was so warm last week, 60 degree weather warm.  My kids have been out riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline, playing basketball, rollerblading...it has been wonderful!  But alas, it couldn't last forever and the snow is back, brrr!

When I pulled up my Cabinet Doors into Children's desk to share with you I was enjoying the "green" in the back ground, ahh spring....

This project was so fun for me, and my kids are still enjoying it.  I shared it on My Repurposed Life several months ago, so I am excited to finally share it with you today!

Cubby Storage Rack

I am finally posting my Cubby Storage Rack that you saw in my Hall closet makeover last week, and boy do I love it!!  I had some set backs with sick kids (strep throat) this week, so I didn't post this at the beginning when I wanted to...

Since I put it up we have had two snow storms and it has passed the test with flying colors!  It is a MILLION TIMES better than what we were doing before.  Not a single item left on the floor.  Bam!  

You NEED one of these!  I have been wanting something like this for a long time, ever since I saw these DIY Rustic Wall Storage Bins.  In fact, I was going to just build them the same way and realized that I wanted mine to fit inside the door frame, and so I needed to use smaller wood.  I changed the plan to fit my space, which is the beauty of DIY!

Hall Closet Makeover

Do you ever have those moments when you can't take something any longer?  You have just had it.

And you have to do something about it...NOW?

That was me and my hall closet a few weeks ago.  So...I ripped it apart and put it back together, the right way.  Ahhh, I feel so much better!

Large DIY Storage Crates

Last week I shared with you my collection of DIY Crates with a promise to share my large DIY Storage Crates, that I first shared on My Repurposed Life last fall.

I have six kids...and with lots of kids come lots of toys...which up until now have been stored in old laundry soap plastic tubs.  My problem was that the laundry tubs, although a great repurpose, were a little too small for some items.  And who wants to have several tubs for blocks when you can store them all in one crate?  

I knew it was time to just build some large crates to fix my problem.

20+ DIY Crates

For several weeks now I have been thinking about how to better organize my home, and I ended up pondering on how much I love crates.

Crates are useful, they help keep things organized, they hide stuff, and they are cute.  You just can't go wrong with DIY Crates!

Then I thought maybe you were were thinking about organizing too.  I mean...it is January...so I decided to share my crate collection with you today, and hopefully inspire you to get out and build!
