Getting organised…

I was reading through The Guardian today, and found some pretty cool ideas for getting organised. I especially like the children’s art and craft storage solution. It looks great, and you never know where to stack all your baking trays anyway.

I’m on a mission – I want to store my food in different jars with labels on each and one of them. So seeing this picture online today, made me want to go look for cool labels and jars. What about you – are you on a similar mission? And did you have any luck finding labels?

Another thing I haven quite figured out yet is where to place gift wrapping stuff. I always end up with quite a selection, and I never know where to put it all. So I might actually consider this idea.

Finally, hanging on the ikea hangers – yes it is in fact tights. I didn’t notice that before reading the text. But it really is a great idea.

So after this little bit of inspiration, I think I’ll try and get a bit more organised during the summer holiday. It’s the perfect project for a rainy day.

Great DIY project

I fell in love with this DIY project the moment I first saw it. What a lovely way to display all the tiny things, you know you have all around your home. I try hard not to buy those things, because I never know where to put them. But I fail big time. So this is the perfect solution. I found it on the lovely blog Mokkasin, and you should hop on over there for more pictures. Oh and one more thing, don’t you just love the Angels?

Work on what you love…

Here’s a cool DIY project for your door. I’m considering doing the same thing, if I can find a suitable door in our new home.

The apartment belongs to blogger Charlotte, who blogs at Blackbird.Her place is for sale here, so if you’re looking for an apartment in Göteborg, this might be it. And even though you’re not home hunting you should check it out because of the cool kitchen.

My Eye Exam – New in

I went shopping today, splashed out big time. Had to do the last bit of shopping before the Easter lunch tomorrow – and of course get a cup of coffee at Behag.

I bought this eye exam thing (a piece of plastic to use on the table under your plate) in Søstrene Grenes for DKK 10. I placed it on the wall above my working space in the living room.

Happy Easter out there.

Cool storage for kids

Here is some inspiration for a rather cool storage solution for all the tiny toys your kids tend to bring to the home. I’m collecting glass jars right now, and hopefully I’ll be creating these lovlies soon. They will look great in my son’s new room.

I found them on this great blog that I’m now following called My 2nd hand life. It’s a wonderful source of inspiration, and just by reading through the posts, I’ve found a few other DIY projects, just waiting for me to get started. But more about them later on. So I highly recommend that you check out the blog here. I’m pretty sure you’ll find a project or two just by having a look around. Enjoy.

Taking out the trash

Don’t you just hate all the piles of trash you can accumulate as a family of four. We use an IKEA trones for all the paper goods we manage to bring into our home. But it’s not enough. It’s constantly stuffed. And it’s not a niece view, when magazines and other pieces of paper are sticking out.

I’ve found this brilliant idea over at Design Shimmer for getting rid of your trash in style. It won’t cure the sticking out thing, but it sure is a fun idea.
