Denim organiser

Denim jeans are Normally something that everyone has one or two pairs of laying around, if you are anything like me you go through them on a regular basis, whether you grow out of them, stain them or rip them, they can usually be reused.

I first saw this idea on Pinterest and it was a why reinvent the wheel moment, someone has designed, sewn and reinforced all these pockets so why not use them as pockets. I think denim is also a warm fabric with some brilliant textures that can decorate any wall.

Mini Herb Wall

Everyone likes a few fresh herbs, the ones that they use the most and the best way to use them is to have them on hand in your kitchen. Vertical gardens are also a huge thing but not everyone can dedicate an entire wall to keeping herbs. My smaller version can be made as large as you want, depending on the space you have and the amount herbs you want to keep.

Sweet Display

Bottles are a fabulous resource, I often use the top and main body of them as mini green houses for plants. This leaves me with lots of bases that normally just end up going in the recycling. I saw an image of a jewellery display made of the bottom of large bottles and liked the idea but didn’t need a jewellery stand at the time.
Instead when I started thinking about things I would like in my stall at makerfaire I thought about adapting the idea to hold sweets.

The Dressing table

Dresser-unit

When I bought my house it had been abandoned so was full of old furniture and many, many years of rubbish and dust. Some of the leftover stuff that I could never see myself using, including a triple bunk bed and a play kitchen, and they went on Freecycle and quickly found themselves a new home. Others were kept with some sort of thought that they could be used somewhere else, these were mostly things I could break down into basic materials such as doors from old cupboards and an old chipboard wardrobe but among all of this stuff there was a dressing table.
