Are you short on bathroom storage? Try going up and utilize that vertical wall space! Kathleen from Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} got a brand new storage ladder for her bathroom, and it sure wasn’t by spending $279 at Pottery Barn!

Cereal Box Quatrefoil Lantern

Nike from Choose to Thrive had been crushing on a lantern with a quatrefoil design. Like the rest of us, there isn’t much from Ballard that falls into an affordable price range for Nike, so she set off to make her own. Wondering how she made it? From a cardboard cereal box! Yes, seriously! She […Read More]

Old Candle Holder + Old Cake Pan = New Pedestal

While browsing online, Laurel of The North End Loft came across a rustic pedestal and thought, “I bet I can make that!” Right she was! Laurel created her pedestal using a chunky wood pillar holder and weathered cake pan she got from the thrift store. I love all the decorating possibilities with this little stand, and of course, the fact that it’s from repurposed materials makes me love it all the more!

Repurpose Cake Pans into Tiered Stand

From serving snacks and beverages to organizing craft supplies, there are TONS of uses for tiered trays. However, in my book that still doesn’t merit a monster price tag. Kirsten of The Crafting Chicks shows how you can turn a few items from the thrift store into your own stylish tiered stand. Kirsten simply painted her candlesticks and then glued them between the cake pans to create her stand. I love that this is made from repurposed materials and cost only $6, especially considering what a versatile piece it is!

Kitchen Tablet Stand (Without Cutting a Piece of Wood!)

All my regular readers know I love a good repurpose and some outside-the-box thinking, which likely explains my excitement over this tablet holder created by Jane of Mamie Jane’s. Jane didn’t have to cut a single piece of wood to create her stand thanks to her mad repurposing skills. She simply glued a Scrabble tile holder to the front of a thrift store cutting board and a child’s wooden triangle block to the back and called it a day! Genius!

Wooden Twine and Scissors Holder

When it comes to Pinterest, the pinning is the easy part. It’s making those pins actually come to fruition that presents the greater challenge. So you know Angie at Knick of Time was thrilled to mark this wooden twine holder as “pinned and done,” especially considering she pulled it off for less than a dollar using part of an old chair leg and a small wooden plaque she picked up from the craft store. This is such a darling storage idea that could also work great for ribbon, wasabi tape, and other crafting supplies.
