Organization Projects While at Home

The seasons are changing, and the weather is becoming colder. As you move your activities indoors, you might be realizing that your options are limited due to COVID-19. If you’re looking for ways to keep yourself occupied this winter, why not try some DIY organization projects while you’re at home? It’s a great way to spruce up your home and keep yourself safe and distracted.

5 DIY Projects for Home Organization

Nothing feels better when you’re stuck at home than enjoying the space you’re in. Try these five DIY home organization ideas to get your home organized before 2021:

  1. Repurpose an Old Dresser – There’s no time like the present to get rid of clothes you outgrew or know you will never wear again. If you find yourself with an empty dresser after decluttering your closet, consider turning it into the perfect organization tool. Take out the drawers and paint them in bright colors. Use a label maker to label each drawer and then use drawer separators to help maximize the space. Dressers are great for craft storage, office storage, tools and more.
  2. Makeover Your Bathroom – Bathrooms are one of the most ignored spaces within a home. Have you ever cleaned out your medicine cabinet? Take time to clean out all cabinets and drawers in your bathroom. Then after a deep cleaning, invest in some kitchen organization supplies to keep medicine, makeup and cleaning supplies organized.
  3. Invest in Pegboard – Who knew something so inexpensive could have so many uses. Pegboard works especially well in workshops and garages. Add colorful hooks and keep tools, supplies and outdoor toys organized and off the floor.
  4. Upgrade a Basic Rolling Cart – Rolling carts have recently found new life. With just a coat of paint and some updated casters, you can use a rolling cart as a diaper station in a nursery, added storage in a kitchen, moveable storage in a craft room or for easy access in an art studio.
  5. Build Closet Storage – If you are good at carpentry one project you can do to transform your daily life is to invest time into building closet storage. With just some 2x4s and a can of paint, you can add much-needed shelving, drawers, shoe racks and more to your existing closet. You’ll be amazed by how much an organized closet can change your outlook.
