Spice Rack

There is a lot more to this wooden, lacquered spice rack than meets the eye. While it can certainly uphold its intended purpose of functioning as a kitchen organizer, we can definitely think of an alternate use for the piece—a little DIY included.

Makeup Organizer

For anyone with an ever-growing beauty collection, the challenges of finding viable storage solutions are all too real.

This easy-to-revamp organizer will help you do just that, allowing for a curated shelving system that will keep your essentials close-at-hand.

Hanging Planter



While we can’t deny the minimalist allure of this concrete planter, a colorful detail is always welcome, especially as we head into the warmer months. After all, one can only have so many gray and terracotta pots and planters. 

Buy: Concrete Hanging Planter, $11.69

A basic dresser can always use a little sprucing up, especially if that entails either a color or textural detail. This classic piece may be a bedroom staple but that doesn’t mean it can’t also double as the room’s focal point. Here’s how…

Map Drawer Dresser

Leave it to Jenni, of I Spy DIY, to serve us up with a revamp so detailed and bold, it has us questioning the original structure behind the DIY. A fresh coat of paint, stained poplar boards, and a handful of details by way of the retro-inspired labels transform a basic dresser into a must-have organizer.

Table Runner

It’s safe to say that Target’s entertaining section boasts quite an impressive array of table linens. And while we’re constantly in awe of (read splurging on) the new napkins or runners the retailer has to offer, we can’t help but drum up a few ways to utilize the ones we already own.

Boho Lumbar Pillow

More often than not, we find that throw pillows tend to come at a surprisingly hefty price point, especially when an intricate print or pattern is involved. In lieu of shelling out the big bucks for a piece, you will inevitably want to swap out, take cues from the blogger behind Francois et Moi, who transformed a table runner into a boho-chic accent piece for the bedroom.
