I love transforming items and making them useful again. But, I don't just do any transformation. I look for DIY projects that will help me organize the home. If you haven't seen my DIY home organizing projects, this post is just for you. These eight DIY projects were created this year to better different areas of my home like the bedroom, the outdoor garden, the kitchen, and the craft area. I shared all of these on HomeTalk.
