When you live in a small space, every square inch matters. It helps to be more creative about everything — from organization, to storage, to furniture. Show us how you use your DIY skills to maximize the space in your home, office, and other nooks and crannies, and enter your Instructables in the Small Spaces contest.

Winners will take home a 3 pack of Clime sensors to automate your life, an iPad Air, mini Jambox speaker, and more! We can't wait to see your big ideas for those small spaces.
