20 DIY Storage Bins, Baskets, and Boxes

So who else loves the Container Store or the organizing aisle at Target? They are my happy places. I think because when I’m standing there looking at the hooks and bins and gadgets it feels like there’s a dimension where life could really be completely clean and organized and magazine worthy all the time. A place where you can always find everything and your kids neatly put away one toy before playing with another. For a couple of minutes everything seems possible. And then I come back to reality…usually dragged there by the prices of all those beautiful organizing goodies. Do I really want to spend $20 on a box to put things in? No. No, I do not.  So today I’ve found you some of the best DIY Storage Bins, Baskets, and Boxes to make your life more organized!20 DIY Storage Bins, Boxes and Baskets you can make yourself! | littleredwindow.com

15 Cozy DIY Cowls and Infinity Scarves

Ok, after Fingerless Gloves, my next obsession when the weather gets chilly is a cozy, snuggly scarf. More specifically a cowl or inifity scarf. I love that they’re basically impossible to put on wrong. No need for those scarf tying diagrams I’m always seeing on Pinterest. I also love them because they are great beginner’s project. More interesting than a plain scarf but still easy whether you’re knitting, crocheting or sewing, a cowl or infinity scarf is a great starting project!  Here are 15 of my current favorites that you can make yourself! 15 Cozy Cowls and Infinity Scarves to DIY | littleredwindow.com Continue reading

Herbaceous Mitts Fingerless Gloves

Well, as I mentioned before, I’m having a little bit of a hard time adjusting to the temperatures in our new old house. We ended up having to replace the furnace shortly after we moved in. Which was an expensive surprise.  Welcome to owning an old house! Geesh. So the heat works great, it’s efficient as can be and it seems pretty even throughout the house. But we’re trying not to run the heat unless we really really need to, because we’re kind of scared of the bill. I think I’m struggling because in our old place on the 13th floor of a newish building, we probably only turned our heat on once a year, if that. Even during last year’s polar vortex. I’m not kidding. It was a constant 78 degrees in there no matter what. Herbaceous Mitts Fingerless Gloves | littleredwindow.com

15 Fabulous DIY Curtains and Window Coverings

A couple of summers ago we went on vacation for a few days with my family. My parents had rented a house near a lake for everyone to share and it was lovely. Really, it was a very nice home…until we realized that, wait a minute…there is not one single window covering in this house! No curtains, blinds, drapes, shades. Nothing. Not even in the bathrooms. Changing clothes was really interesting in that house. And that experience really made me realize that curtains and window coverings are one of those things that you just take for granted. They are just there. And since we moved there have been some “just there” roman shades in our dining room that I’m willing myself not to see. They’re a gathered earth tone stripe fabric and they’re perfectly fine shades. They are just sooo not our style. But it gets really bright in there so we’ve left them alone so far. Because that’s the other thing about curtains and blinds. They can be so expensive! So today’s crafty roundup is really more like research for me. I’m bringing you some amazing and creative DIY curtains, blinds, shades and window coverings so you can cover your windows and save some dough!
