Not a Single Inch Wasted

"After designing a custom double vanity for our master bath, we were left with almost 6 inches of space on each side. My wife had the idea for spice-rack-style storage, so I built these pullouts."

Decorative and Handy, Too!

"Using corbels and beadboard from the lumberyard and shelves from another project, I created open shelving in my kitchen. I love seeing my favorite dishes in their own special places. Even the coffee cups hang from hooks, so they're easy to grab."

New Idea in Window Dressing

"When we lost a bedroom window to our master suite addition, we decided to turn it into a focal point. My father-in-law constructed the shelves, and we added trim and corner pieces, which we picked up for less than $25."

Best. Gift. Ever.

"For my fortieth birthday, I asked for better organization. Fortunately, my husband's a weekend carpenter, so he designed and built these lockers in our mudroom using plywood and poplar. They corral the kids' backpacks and hide their shoes. They even give me back a bit of my sanity."
