The Best Way To Organize Cords

By definition organizing means that you take some elements and order them by categories. In this case we are organizing cords. I think you have a problem with all your technology cords organization because they all look alike and you don’t know how to make a difference between them.

You will start by gathering all the cords in the house. The cords from your phones, from your play station, from every little item till your headsets.

The boxes come very handy in your apartment or house, because it makes your life much easier. You need just one hour to make this work, and after that you will, start organizing different types of item in your house.


How to make a cork-tile pinboard

However tidy you were, there’s always something on your desk that shouldn’t be there but from which you can’t dispose. Whether it is something important or something with emotional value, you feel uncomfortable to putt it anywhere else but in front of your eyes. In this case a cork-tile pinboard should do the trick.

You can buy this pinboard or just do it yourself, but then again you should already know I will always go for the second option. One model for a cork-tile pinboard is given by another hand made things lover.  The author opted for a simple schematic diamond pinboard, very easy to make. For this model you will need cork tiles, a painter’s tape, white paint and a paint brush. Tape the bands on the board so you’ll create some diamond. Paint the remaining cork in white and waits until it dries. After that, peel the tape. The left model will be straight and smooth.


Paint dipped ceramic pots

The ceramic pots are perfect for your first painting and designing job. You can get the ceramic pots from IKEA. They are not expensive at all, in fact they are very cheap 2$ or 3$ per pot.The ceramic pots can be, like in this case, painted. One way to do that turning over the pots and just fill in the back of the pots with paint until it will glide over the board. You should not use paper to dry the paint because it will stick to the ceramic pot. Instead use wood or just a piece of tile.

You can now make your own garden, with beautiful colored flowers and, of course, beautiful colored pots. You can use the pots for other things, like holding your pencils. The pots are perfect made for flowers, and the designed pots could fit everywhere you want. It could fit perfect in your bedroom, living room, and I think the perfect position is in the balcony.

The night stands come usually with drawers, so you can deposit all kind of stuff that you need right away, when you’re sitting in your bed.


Dramatic bedroom transformation with 600$

In my opinion we should all redecorate our room, especially our bedroom, after a period of time. I think that this particular bedroom makeover is a total blast. The difference between the old bedroom and the new one is extremely clearly. The brightness of the new room is putting the old dark room in the shadows.

The best thing I’ve noticed about the bedroom new design is the closet doors that look like chalk boards, with the inscription of he and she. It gives a teenage touch to the room. The curtains that cover the windows are much more alive than the old ones. It looks like, at the level of the bed, the curtain is plugged in a little bit of love and passion.

Living room corner makeover

It’s always interesting to follow the transformation of a particular room of the house and to see how it slowly becomes something different. In this case, we’re only going to take a look at one corner of a living room and see how it was turned from an empty space into a cozy and inviting space.

In this corner, all we have is a chair and some shelves. The chair is obviously the star but the bookshelves are beautiful too. Let’s start with the beginning. First, the shelves were taken out and the back of the bookshelf was taped up in order to paint it. This portion was painted the same color as the dining room in order to create uniformity and continuity. Then the shelves were put back on and the books were added. Even though the owner is not a big book lover and prefers technology, the books felt like a must-have for an inviting home. They also make a statement.
