You don’t need a lot of money to have a killer closet. All you’ll require is the time and effort to sort it out. With these simple DIY hacks, anyone can give their overstuffed closet a stylish makeover.
1. Create your own DIY accessory board
A DIY accessory board is a neat and stylish way to pack away your accessories. All that’s needed is a picture frame, some string and fasteners. Attach the strings to the picture frame in neat rows, and there you have created a little rack for your accessories. Place this anywhere you want - hung on the wall of your room, inside your closet, or propped up on your dresser so that your accessories are always in plain sight.
The finished product can also double up as a stunning wall piece for your room.
An especially good use for this is to use it as a rack for sunglasses. Place it somewhere accessible, and you’ll never forget to pick up a pair when you need it.
2. Use PVC pipes to make a statement
PVC pipes can be used in more ways than one.
Place a cut-open pipe against the wall and there you’ll have an instant storage space for all your shoes and designer pumps.
You can also rearrange them in different formations to create a one-of-a-kind statement wall design. It’s easy to make and functional to use.
Visit your local hardware store to check out the various sizes and lengths you can purchase.
3. Give old ladders a new lease of life
If you have an old ladder lying around the house, put it to work by giving it a fresh coat of paint and a new lease of life. Prop it up against a wall, and it becomes a clothes rack. Use it as a hanger to plan tomorrow’s outfits, or even use it as a nightstand. A rustic ladder can add so much charm to your bedroom, while also giving you more space for your bedroom items. If you’re feeling especially adventurous, you can even mount it on your wall to transform a ladder into a hanging rack closet.
4. Wine racks for towels and purses
More than simply storing wine, a wall-mounted wine rack can also be used as a holder for other items: towels and purses, just to name a few.
Start by picking out a wall-mounted wine rack that suits your home. Try a wrought-iron rack for a classy style, or a weathered metal and wood rack for a rustic look. Just be sure to give it a good cleaning before use.
Organising Tip: If using wine rack as a towel holder, organise your towels according to their sizes, from the smallest on top to the largest at the bottom. This allows you to easily pick up the towel you need.
