a simple lifestyle blog
We had a weirdly warm winter here in Portland this year.
However, it seems that everywhere else got really extreme winter weather.
Even SoCal had temperatures well below the 50 degree minimum I had become accustomed to growing up.
aaaaaaaaaand that’s how I feel about that.
The one thing I will give warm weather is that it sure brings out a lot of garage sales.
I LOVE garage sales.
If you’re into crafting/upcycling/repurposing, you TOTALLY smell what I am stepping in here.
So, this week I thought it would be fun, in preparation for garage sale season, to get inspired to repurpose those not so charming dressers that will surely litter every yard and driveway come Spring.
All you need are some castors ($6/pair @ Home Depot) to screw on the bottom of some freshly painted drawers for this storage solution.
Just add some decorative shelf brackets (Hobby Lobby) for rustic shelf storage.
Add some funky knobs (as low as $4/pair at Cost Plus World Market) to outward facing shelves for a fresh take on organization.
Adorable bathroom organizer as seen on Itsy Bits and Pieces.
Dowel + wood stain can be found at Home Depot for under $10!
*PRO TIP* check their clearance paint section for stains and paints at a fraction of their original price!
Just add table legs (Home Depot) to a rustic drawer for a miniature table that will add character and storage to your bathroom.
You can get a bigger package than you will ever need of cup hooks at Home Depot for under $4. Combine them some decorative knobs (starting at $4/pair at Cost Plus World Market) and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous jewelry organizer.
See how you can make this adorable doll house over at By Your Hands.
Cork board + contact paper (Dollar Tree) makes for a splash of color that is great for displaying photos, reminders and keepsakes alike.
Ulchville has an ultra simple tutorial on making these repurposed shelves.
Pop on over to Decor Viva for this side table tutorial. It is in Spanish so, if you need to, you can translate the page or just take a look at her helpful photos.
Until next time, cheers!
