If you don’t know already I love to go flea market, thrift store, and antique shopping. You never know what you can find. I love the hunt, but another thing I love about second hand shopping is figuring out how to repurpose or upcycle something old and turning into something useful. Here are some trash to treasure storage and organization ideas I have featured here on DIY Inspired in the past.
To hold jewelry you can use old shutters and doors, repurpose flower frogs, or upcycle cork boards. All these examples are not only useful, but help display your jewelry and accessories like they are pieces of art.
Hang flea market wire baskets sideways on a wall in a bathroom for towels, bedroom for books, or in the kitchen for dishes.
An old tiered pie stand can be used in a bathroom to hold makeup. Use mismatched plates as trays to add color or pattern to match your décor. This not only is a cool statement piece, but also makes makeup easily accessible.
Old rakes are easy to find at flea markets and if they are broken you can get them for a great price. Is it rusty? Don’t worry. You can easily refurbish one. Rakes can be repurposed into dog leash holders, wine glass holders, or kitchen utensil holders.
As you can see there are many cool and unique ways to store and organize just about anything in the house. With a little imagination and creativity, you can literally turn someone else’s trash into your very own treasure.
