The other day I went shopping for inspiration.  I shop for inspiration because I’m too cheap to buy anything and always think in my head… hey… I can make that myself.  It’s a sickness.  Don’t judge me.  I love to go to mid-ranged and high end stores and boutiques to see what’s new and trending.  Anyway I found some fun pieces at TPT Home so I wanted to share my retail shopping DIY inspiration with you.

I love these glass vessels.  I’ve seen some DIY versions floating around online.  I definitely am going to try this with some thrift store finds.  The cheaper the better… so stay tuned!

This dresser was the first thing I saw when I walked into one of the stores.  I LOVE the industrial feel to it…the metal, the appearance of salvaged wood, and the lettering.

Here is another similar piece that caught my eye.

I always see vintage ladders at flea markets and they always seem a little too high priced.  But I love this idea of using two of them and add shelving using salvaged wood.  I wouldn’t even mind this piece in my family room.

I saw this repurposed hanging shelf and thought it was so neat.  It seems like you can make it out of any old railings or posts from a porch or crib.

Here is the other side of it.

I’ve seen a lot of subway art and I really like the look of it.  This one really stood out to me.

Last but not least.  I love this idea to hold jewelry.

I hope these pieces inspired you as much as they inspired me!
