Can't find a side table you absolutely love? Make one yourself instead! Using a wooden crate for the top and dowels for the legs, you can make a simple side table for a corner of your room. Just make sure you inspect the crate for any weak spots before attaching the legs, and you're good to go.

Don't just shove your blankets in a drawer: put those beauties on display with a cool blanket ladder instead. Break out the power tools (or bribe someone to help you) and get to work cutting notches out of your plywood. Use painters tape and craft paint to add a modern design to the bottom half for the perfect finishing touch.

Scarf Stand

Your gorgeous scarves deserve to be seen. Create a stand for them with a wooden table top for the base, dowels and some paint. Give everything an ample amount of time to dry before hanging your scarves so you don't accidentally get paint on them. This would also be great for lightweight handbags!
