DIY Closet Organizer for a 4′ x 4′ Closet

Closet organization!!! Something I always strive for, but with a teen and two tweens, it doesn’t seem to happen very well. My 14 year-old daughter has the smallest closet of my three kids.

An Easy Way to Hang a Loose Canvas

My son was gifted an awesome Steph Curry canvas by his basketball coach. It was a loose canvas, so I wanted to find the best way to hang it on his wall.

Garage Steps Makeover

When our house was built, the stairs leading from the garage into our mudroom were left as plain plywood and wood.
