DIY storage ideas sliding storage system

Garage sliding storage system

This is one of my all time favourites simply because garages are hard to keep organized. So many things end up in there, little things that are easy to lose and easy to get cluttered.

This sliding storage system keeps your boxes of items above the garage floor, which keeps them safe from flooding and animals, as well as keep all that stuff out of your way.

This sliding system is also remarkably easy to build. To get step by step instructions, read the tutorial here.

yarn storage ideas

Store yarn in coffee canisters on the wall

If you knit you are probably used to seeing your yarn all over the house. You probably also spend a good chunk of your time untangling it too. If you want to have more time for the actual knitting, we found a great tutorial for you. It will teach you how to use coffee canisters to store your yarn in an easy to manage way.

With this storage idea you will never have to worry about not finding what you need when you need it again. All you have to do is get some strong double sided tape and stick it to the bottom of the cans. Because the yarn is light, you won’t have to worry about the cans falling off the wall.

Use a peg board to organize crafting supplies

Another great DIY home storage idea for crafting is to hang all of your supplies on a pegboard. This will make it a breeze to find exactly what you are looking for, even when you are in a hurry. It even looks good.

You can buy a pegboard or if you are feeling adventurous you could build your own. All you really need is a drill, the board and a ruler along with something to mark where you would need to drill the holes.
