There’s just something about fall that makes you want to get organized. Kristina Steinmetz of Ich Designer used this $10 slatted bed base to create an organization hub. All you do is hang the slats on your wall and use S-hooks to attach baskets, kitchen utensils or clipboards. The best part is that you can customize it for any room in your home — office, bathroom and entryway. See the full DIY here.

Fall brings with it so many fun accessories like hats, scarves and boots — but keeping them organized can be difficult, especially if you live in a small space. Enter the Vittsjo laptop table, which doubles as an amazing entryway console with space for baskets and shoes underneath. Jenn from My Fabuless Life took the plain, metal frame and hacked hers into a farmhouse-chic style. See the full DIY here.

There’s a spot for your espresso, coffee pods and even sugar. See the full DIY here.
