Not long ago I explored ways people have used the super affordable Bekvam spice racks all around the house and today I'm turning to another cheap and extremely versatile IKEA product - the Fintorp kitchen organizer series. Let's take a look at some clever and smart ways folks are using Fintorp at home.

The Fintorp system, if you're not familiar with it, is a rail-based organizer which includes hooks, wire baskets, and metal caddies in two sizes. You'll find it in IKEA's kitchen section, but as you'll see below there are a plethora of creative ways to use it throughout your home.

1. Amanda of Things Bright & Beautiful doesn't have outdoor space, but since she loves to cook she wanted to grow her own herbs - voila!

2. Similarly, Pinterest user RyE McE created a small, indoor container garden in her home and she actually hung the Fintorp rails completely across her window for maximum sun exposure.
