Hallway Intervention | How to Dress Up Your Radiator

Our front hallway was an eyesore. It’s not very big, and quickly our ugly brown radiator became a catch all for junk; from wet winter boot liners in the winter to garden gloves, and running shoes in the summer. It needed some sprucing up, and I needed some cheering up. I had been to a friend’s house where she had painted her radiators pink in her daughter’s room and I was immediately inspired. Who says the radiator had to stay the builder brown that it had been since the house was built in 1910?

Cleaning up the toys! | Toy Storage Ideas

After months of stepping on dollhouse furniture and lego pieces, my feet could no longer stand it! (no pun intended). Something had to be done. Our basement, which functions as our family/rec room and playroom, was a total disaster of toys. The cheap toy bins we had originally thought would be great for keeping things organized and tidy (back when it was just baby toys for one kid), just didn’t cut it anymore.

Crafting & gift wrap centre | Organize your life!

This new year I set a goal to finally finish setting up my office. I’m a freelance graphic designer so I work both from home and at agencies in-house. When I’m at home I want my office to be a place where I can focus on work. Currently, it’s a catch-all, where we throw clean laundry to fold, store any kids projects we want to keep, hold unused wrapping paper, store crafting supplies. Last year was incredibly busy, so my office has taken over a year to finish. This year, my first project was creating a craft and gift-wrapping area. Since my office is small, the only place I had for it was behind the door.

Below you will find a step-by-step guide to how I created my fabulous crafting and wrapping supplies station. Happy organizing!
