Welcome to our first post of 2019! Like lots of people this time of year, the past week has been full of purging and cleaning and reorganizing for our family. Of starting off fresh. The New Year is the perfect time to go through our material possessions, decide what’s important, and figure out creative ways to store our things. And not just creative, but also easy-to-find. It doesn’t help much if your things are tucked away, albiet organized, five layers deep into your closet. Sometimes things have to be tucked away (I have an attic, cellar, and garage for tucking things away), but for the items we use on a day-to-day basis, like glasses and shoes and books, sometimes we need to organize them neatly in such a way that we can access them, and don’t forget about them.
I’ve been going through the kitchen, living room, and our bedroom, removing the unnecessary, and then finding (or making) a place for the items that I’ve deemed worthy of keeping in our home. Giving everything a particular place in our homes helps maintain order and avoid clutter. SIGN ME UP! This is why I partnered with Zenni on today’s DIY plywood glasses storage design. I wanted to figure out a way to store multiple pairs of glasses without taking up precious drawer space (I have a tiny dresser). I love the idea of keeping glasses ON the dresser, hanging on this plywood stand. They don’t get scratched, you don’t forget you have them, and they look beautiful!
I’ll be getting my first-ever *real* glasses this year (kinda excited about that, because I always wanted glasses). How beautiful are those Zenni frames? My two favorites are the clear round frames and these ivory tortoise shell. I love the huge variety of frames at Zenni, and their super accessible price point. Which are your favorites; definitely check out their selection for your next pair! Keep reading for the full DIY. And standby, we have another organizational DIY coming to the blog soon!
