Get your DIY on with the following easy apartment storage projects found on Pinterest. Any of the following projects would look fantastic in Timbercreek Communities’ Cambridge apartments and are great damage-free projects.


DIY Magnetic Makeup HolderTC Cambridge Pinterest

This DIY Magnetic Makeup Holder by Nicole Sometimes Thinks is a fabulous storage option for people with lots of makeup and skincare clutter. This popular Pinterest post involves magnetizing your makeup so that it is organized on a board, instead of all over your bedroom or bathroom. For this tutorial you will need a sheet of metal in the size of your choice, a backless frame and adhesive magnetic strips. Michaels Craft Store is a 20-minute transit ride from Timbercreek’s 204 Hespeler Road community and is a great place to pick up all of your craft supplies for this and the following projects.

Mason Jar Organization

Another popular storage pick from Pinterest is this Mason Jar Organizer from The DIY Playbook. This extra storage is perfect to hold all of your Q-tips, cotton balls, bathroom essentials and any other miscellaneous items. For this tutorial you will need mason jars, hose clamps, wood, wood stain, a drill, screws and a picture hanging kit. This storage solution can be created in less than 30 minutes and for under $20.

Jewelry Storage

Display your jewelry proudly while de-cluttering your collection at the same time with this Jewelry Storage project by House on the Way. This tutorial uses decorative towel racks and S hooks to create a stunning store-like display. Hang necklaces and bracelets from the rack with shower curtain S hooks that can be found at any department store.

Shoe Box Charging Station

There is nothing more annoying than a mess of tangled electronic cords and chargers. De-clutter all of that with this Shoe Box Charging Station courtesy of Everyday Family. This project helps to organize the messy coils of cords from computers, monitors, printers, speakers, mobile phones and more. On a safety note, only plug chargers in for the time of the charge in order to avoid overheating the box.

Keep clutter at bay with a few of our favourite Pinterest DIY projects. Timbercreek’s Cambridge community is located in a family- friendly community that is close to all of life’s amenities including public transit, schools, shopping, entertainment and more
