Easy Junk Drawer Makeover!

We all have that one drawer in desperate need of structure and organization. Or, ya know, three or four drawers… Who’s counting, anyway? Fear the clutter no more with this DIY tutorial! Get organized and stay that way. Plus, customize your drawers for an added splash of personality and color to any room. Unlike store bought drawer organizers, this DIY version is completely customizable. For example, you could build an organizer with one section for chargers, cut holes in the cardboard divider and feed the wires through to another section where your electronics can charge! The sky is the limit here. Check out what we did in the video below and then go crazy with your own ideas!
