Casa Quickie: Store Behind the Door


If getting organized is one of your New Year's resolutions, here's a quick trick to keep your unsightly stuff out of sight. Behind a door is often a great place to store things, whether your junk is stowed in the corner or hanging on a hook. If you have a door that opens onto a corner just right, then go a step further and install a cute curtain to create an insta-closet.

Here, the door and the curtain combine to form two sides of a four-sided storage area, which houses a shelf full of sewing and laundry supplies. To create a similar storage space in your home, all you need is a swing-arm curtain rod mounted on the top of the door and a cute window panel or piece of fabric.

Swing the arm out at a 90-degree angle from the door to create two sides of a three- or four-sided space (depending on how your door opens). Hang even more items on hooks behind the curtain. Then, it's all out of sight but easy to access whenever you need it.
