The one that I've been most interested in as of late though is Shibori dyeing, which basically means shaping and securing the textile before placing in a dye bath. I've simplified the process to make it easy enough for even the most beginner level DIYer to handle, and used rubber bands to create interesting designs in a matter of minutes.

A few weeks ago, Bruno and I traveled to Overland Park, Kansas to make over a Curbly reader's home, courtesy of Lowe's. We spent two days with the Dickson family in their sweet, stylish home (Hi, Amber and Lucas!), transforming their living room for the holidays.

In this 1950s ranch style home you walk in from the garage straight into the laundry room. Inside the laundry room is a walk in coat/storage closet. The owner before had used it as a pantry/coat closet. Besides being outdated, this closet had a few identity problems.

I have an 18 inch wide pantry and this is how it has looked lately. We moved into our house with big dreams of a future kitchen renovation but until then, we must function out of very little storage.
