IKEA Rast Makeover and 7 DIY Organization Projects For Your Home

Welcome to Funtastic Friday #115! I’m sure everyone knows by now that while I will take on a variety of projects big and small, I love furniture makeovers. I’ve got a couple of large furniture pieces in the garage (among other things) waiting for me to tackle them.

If you follow me on Instagram, you can find two secretaries I’m itching to get started on. If the weather would just make up it’s mind and stay nice, I could get more large scale projects done. My house it too small and the garage too full.

I know, I’m a downer but, my favorite for this week’s party definitely cheers me up. Simply Beautiful by Angela refurbished two IKEA rasts and put some heart, soul, and scraps into it. I love everything about them and they look so elegant!

Another aspect of house and home I’m obsessed with is organization. Joe can vouch for that. So mixing DIY and organization is also up my alley. I’ve gathered up 7 creative and functional DIYs to help organize your home that I know you’ll love!
