DIY Idea: Make a Chalkboard Wall-Mounted Home Organizer

In my house, it's the half-wall between the landing and the stairs. So I certainly know that when your countertops, desks, and other flat surfaces are continually filled with mail, errands, and other "to do" related goodies, it's time for an official solution.

Quick Tip: How to Install a Shower Shelf Over Glass or Ceramic Tiles

I mean, figuring out how to arrange and balance all those shampoo bottles and soap bars on the two-inch-wide edge or the tub is what kept me occupied during those boring morning showers.

For the past thirty-six months, I've been slowly filling my walls with DIY art projects, screenprints from my favorite artists, even a full-on collage of colorful paint samples glued to the plaster (which are never coming off, by the way). But this guy...taunts every morning. Or, had been.  Cause last weekend, I decided to do something about it.   … read more
