  2. No More Slips

    Hide

    Swatches of Ultrasuede fabric, affixed to wooden hangers with a bit of craft glue, provide just enough traction to keep delicate blouses, camisoles, and other hard-to-hang garments from tumbling to the closet floor.

  3. Kitchen to Closet

    Hide

    A pair of paper-towel holders mounted on the inside of one closet door organizes scarves or ties and keeps them wrinkle-free. A kitchen-utensil rail proves to be ideal for belts: Each gets its own S hook.

  4. Fill Planters with Packing Peanuts

    Hide

    Don't throw out the foam peanuts or bubble packing material the next time you get a box in the mail; put them to use. 

    When filling outdoor planters, sub the packing material for up to half the soil. The plant won't know the difference, the container will be lighter, and you'll use less soil. Place the packing material in a plastic bag at the bottom of the pot, and cover with the soil.

  5. Wallpapered Shelves

    Hide

    Add a splash of personality to a lackluster work space by covering plain floating bookshelves with wallpaper. Measure the shelf, and cut the wallpaper slightly longer than shelf and wide enough to wrap around it with an overlap. Use wallpaper paste to affix the wallpaper to the shelf, pasting one side at a time. Cut slits into excess paper at ends, forming flaps; fold down, and affix with paste. Let dry completely, and hang shelves as usual.
