DIY solutions for everyday problems: home organization

I'm not a statistician, but I'm sure we all waste a few days per year in solving annoying everyday problems, such as tangled cords, dresses that slip from their hangers, earrings that get lost... This is why today I came with some solutions for tidy DIYers. Unfortunately I'm not one of that kind, that's why I searched for the best DIYs made by organization lovers. I'm more like playing with chaos, what could I do? However, I promise I'm going to give a try to some of these projects. At least I have an intention!!
 If your hangers don't have a small notch on the sides, to prevent your dresses from falling, just try this idea by In My Own Style: wrap some pipe cleaners around your hangers. Problem solved!
If your scarfs and your coat always end up somewhere on the living room, when you arrive home... Why don't you try building a beautiful coat stand like this one made by Cantilever and Press?
 This is one of the things that my followers have asked me to do several times: how to make an organizer for accessories. You guys can put a frame in your bedroom, with some padding inside, that allows you to hang your earrings and necklaces. However, I don't really like these solutions as a decorating element. But I do recognize they're so useful, so I would definitely put them on the inner side of my closet's door.

Life is what happens while your are busy untangling your cords... I really need one of these, because I literelly live surrounded by cables. I recommend you visiting Organize your Stuff Now and I heart Organizing, two must-visit blogs for messy people with good intentions.

DIY Inspiration: How to customize your leather jacket

Today's edit has been inspired by some requests made by my YouTube subscribers: some of them asked me for ideas to upgrade or to recycle an old perfecto leather jacket. I personally believe that a well customized leather jacket can easily become an outstanding piece on our wardrobes. The only thing that keeps me away from getting started with such a brave DIY project is that... I really love my leather jacket. I love it just the way it is, I don't want to add any embellishments nor to change its design. However, I'll try to find an inexpensive leather jacket during the sales season in order to create a tutorial for you.

This DIY inspiration is not something I'm going to recreate by now, but I know that many of you have old jackets that need urgently some sort of makeover to make them wearable again. So I hope you guys like these ideas!
