Always forgetting your keys? Never did come up with a smart way to store your mail (and bills)? Just feel like you need a better idea for those everyday, important items you always feel like you're losing track of? Get out your DIY spirit (and a few tools and supplies) to try on one of these DIY wall organizing projects on for size. Stylish and customizable, one of these is sure to be the perfect solution for a small space in your home.

Good news! The project above doesn't require much (any) real DIYing, it's more of a suggestion to use a large metal, gridded mesh sheet from a hardware store as a wall organizer. It looks great as is, but you could also spray paint yours or maybe wrap thread or yarn around some parts of it for a mix of metal and woven look. Combine with binder clips or clothes pin and you have a way to display important papers and inspiration. This idea spotted on Passion Shake.

Need a lot of folders to hold important documents so they're not stacked unpleasantly all over your desk? Take the idea of the folder out of the filing cabinet, add color and pattern and get this great project we spotted on Blitsy. You could make as many of these as you need to fit your organizing situation.

We love this idea! Taking embroidery hoops and adding fabric is not a new trend for decorating a wall. But adding small storage pockets like with this project we saw on Abernathy Crafts could help you create an array of organizing pockets for any wall.

Why not take over as many clipboards as you need to create stylish pockets you can store your important documents on? Can also be hung on the wall! Seen on Gathering Beauty.
