I have so much stuff! Desks, bookshelves, small kitchen appliances, books, chairs, you name it. And at least 2 to 100s. Ever thought of using the most random items for other uses?
For example, I found an old shower curtain rod, complete with the curtain rings. Not that I'd have a problem bringing my old, extra rod to the thrift store, but I figured I could use it. Unconventionally, I'll admit, but I did have this pile of purses on the closet floor. Shower rod+ rings+ purses= room for my shoes on the closet floor. Just what every girl needs.
And another use for those spare shower curtain rings- hanging my numerous scraves. Belts could work too, or whatever you can think of really...
A thin vase became a great way to show off my bracelets. I always had the problem of not being able to close my jewelry box because most of them are so chunky, so problem solved in a repurposed kind of way.
I have a great laundry room. Huge and lots of storage, what could be better? My only problem with it was... at 5'-3", the overhead shelving required a chair to reach anything. And if anyone knows me, they know that me and standing on chairs don't mix, so I set about adding more (yes, more) shelves at a more reasonable level for the likes of myself. I knew I was going to need a shelf over the washing machnine and dryer, and I figured, instead of going out and buying yet another shelf, i opted to use my very old, very first snowboard. I just couldn't say good-bye. So I didn't. Now, I can say I'm still using the snowboard I had in junior high!
I had an old coat hanger and a spare bed sheet. I figured my door needed a wreath, so that's what we got!
