Remember, you can link up to 3 home posts/projects of any kind to be featured, but we are also looking for projects following a weekly theme to include in an upcoming weekend Top Ten post. This week’s theme is: organization. We want to see how you keep your stuff where it should be — or at least try to! Kitchen, office, kids — any organized space.

  1. My wife and I are remodeling our home, and these ideas are such great money savers (they look great too)! I am especially fond of the industrial style fan with the Edison bulbs- very contemporary! Thanks for sharing these ideas, we will be using some of them as we continue to remodel!
