A Hidden Jewelry Organizer

If you want to stash your jewelry collection in your closet but assume you don't have space for it, think again. By installing pegboards to one wall of your closet, and then hiding them behind a slim, wall-mounted IKEA mirror, you'll create a space to check out your outfit as you add on some finishing touches. Follow along with the full DIY on Curbly.

Rolling Shoe Storage

The rolling RASKOG cart is perhaps one of the most versatile IKEA products ever made. No surprise here—this portable, three-tiered cart is not only useful in the kitchen and bathroom, but also in your bedroom closet. Spotted on the IKEA blog, Livet Hemma, this cart makes an excellent shoe organizer. Fill all three tiers with footwear (stash your favorite pairs near the top so they're easy to grab), then hang sunglasses or other frequently-worn accessories from the top.
