The workspaces of the home get their fair share of attention as Vicki and Sloan show you how to create a handy workshop in the garage and organize the mudroom and laundry area.
They also share tips on setting up a computer center for the entire family.
PROJECT IN THIS EPISODE: HOME ORGANIZATION IN LAUNDRY ROOM
Need help keeping your home organized? A great tool to use is personalized baskets. By giving each family member a place to store their items, it will help to keep the clutter to a minimum, and give you a great family project on a rainy day.
What you will need:
Unfinished wooden letter(s)
Acrylic craft paint
Many of these supplies are available at your local craft store and are fairly inexpensive. Start by painting your unfinished wooden letter a base color on all sides. After letting that coat dry, you can begin to embellish. (Pro-Tip: By dipping the end of the paint brush directly into the acrylic paint and then immediately placing the end of the paint brush perpendicular to the letter you have a perfect polka-dot every time.) Once the letter is decorated to your liking, cut a strip of ribbon to the length of your choice and attach to the back of the letter with a staple and staple gun. If your letter already has a staple, you can simply pry up the staple, thread the ribbon underneath and hammer the staple back into place. Tie the ribbon into a lovely bow and using a needle and thread, sew the ribbon into the lining of your basket to attach your letter. Now that there is a place for everything, everything can be put into its’ place.
