I love crafts and using them to make my home more stylish. Sometimes it isn't about the massive furniture pieces, but small signature touches that can really make a room pop and feel like home. For my daughters room, this is crucial since I find myself picking up after a trail of mess on a daily basis. The main piece for their room is about storage and keeping everything in order - amidst the pile of stuff.
Crafty Solutions from Michaels
At a recent preview for the craft supply and art store, Michaels, I had the chance to preview some of the best solutions for the home as well as crafts for the kids. Here are some of my favorite picks to revamp your home in no time.
For the Living Room:
Michaels offers an incredible selection of storage bins and containers, and my favorite are the chic collection of Ashland Natural Storage Baskets.With over 100 styles, you can find a range of storage baskets that tap into your style and offer you the functionality that you need. My favorite is the Square Willow Storage Basket that can be used for a variety of needs from magazines to video games.
Their website also offers a collection of tips and DIY projects to make your home looking sharp. I love the cute Cedar Lodge Mod Podge® Book Page Lampshade,Bird on a Branch Chalkboard, Decorative Mirror Frame and Altered Shadow Box as a fun way to enhance the living room space.
For the Kids:
Kids' storage is my life and I try to keep the mess out of sight - even though it has a way of following me throughout our house. To keep it at bay, I have been using the Jingle Jolly ArtMinds'?¢ Rolling Wood Toy Box, a cute blue crate emblazoned with the word "Toys" in white. We add everything from books to dolls to puzzles in the crate and my daughter loves to roll in around while I love that it keeps her stuff in one place.
For kids, I also really like the Jingle Jolly ArtMinds - Crate Clock, Watch Me Grow chart and the fun Under the Sea School of Fish Mobile.
For the Kitchen:
With the holidays coming, Michaels offers a collection of creative kitchen projects like Mini Buggy Cupcakes for Halloween, a Gingerbread Cottage Christmas and Autumn Turkey Cookies for Thanksgiving that kids of all ages will love creating.
For the Bedroom:
Much like the living room, Michaels offers a collection of accessories and craft projects to enhance your sanctuary. Some of my favorites are the 15-inch Apothecary, the Champagne Smooth Open Back Frame, and the fun Dad ATC Collection Altered Tray project.
Whether you want to organize your room or your kids' space, Michaels has you covered with their diverse product offerings to inspire the inner crafter and organizer in all of us.
