Kelly Edwards is a master of design and organization, and has earned the nickname “The MacGyver of Design” thanks to her cunning ability to transform conventional spaces into amazing places–even on the tightest of budgets. She has been seen on HGTV’s “Design On A Dime” and Style Network’s “Tacky House,” and has also been featured on the “Tyra Banks Show” and in Cosmopolitan, Good Housekeeping and Life & Style.
Since quitting my job last month has allotted me some more time to try to get my home organized, I jumped at the chance to interview her a few weeks ago! I mostly wanted some tips on how to get Shane involved in cleaning & organizing- instead of just following me around dumping out everything that I just put away. I asked:
“What are some fun ways to help our children want to stay organized?”
“My son’s room is quite small & his closet is even smaller. Aside from getting rid of toys, do you have any ideas for storing toys & getting more floor space in the process?”
“At what age do you think kids are capable of getting involved in cleaning & organizing?”
“My son is only 2 & hates putting things away because he wants to be able to see all of his toys, all the time. Do you have any recommendations for compromising?”
Check out Kelly’s answers in this great video:
I love the Art Station DIY idea! &The wall tracks are pretty rad- Shane loves cars but I hate how much room they take up on the floor, so I love that they are on the wall & I don’t have to step on the small pieces in the middle of the night.
What was your favorite tip? Or do you have your own tip for getting kids to help clean & organize?
