DIY, Inspiration

DIYer Eileen, who blogs with her husband Ash at Just Measuring Up, built from scratch a set of gorgeous, narrow and shallow shelving that swings out to reveal even more shelving:

Doesn’t it look fabulous? I’ve often wanted shallow shelving for smaller paint containers of sewing notions or other crafting gear. Or tea, to think of it. 🙂

How do you store sewing threads and the corresponding bobbins? Petro at Easy Peasy Creative listed two solutions she found very helpful, and I really liked one of them: joining the spool and bobbin with a rubber band.

What an ingenious idea. I just love it when you take a regular old anything and use it to solve a new problem. I’ll have to do this!

Being a visual person, I love the idea. It’s simple but helpful for arranging your tasks and finding them at a glance. Love the cheerful colors, too; just the thing to counter grey fall skies. 🙂

The .jpg is available for several screen resolutions either with the default categories (To Do, Files and Misc) or with blank label holders in case you want to use your own. Visit In My Own Style to download.

Thank you for sharing, Diane!
