Magazine sunburst mirror. A Tisket. A Tasket. A Wall Full of Baskets. Soo...after my new found obsession with Pinterest started, I came across this wonderful idea for small bathroom storage. Our upstairs "guest" bathroom doesn't have a lot of storage space, our sink is narrow with little cabinet space, and I'm not very in to the shelf/cabinet over the toilet idea. So I was thrilled when I saw this picture. I love baskets because they are a versatile way to store anything and they look good doing it. I was also excited because the current towel bar over the toilet was not centered, which really bothered me, so now I had an excuse to take it down. For the project: A Tisket. A Tasket. A Wall Full of Baskets. Vertical Storage from Old Dresser Drawers. Home Improvement Ideas, Photos and Answers. Spring Shades. Do you ever find that you have two items that suit each other so well and yet by essence cannot be worn together ?

Mint shades – Bought at local RSPCA charity shop. Upcycled shelves from old drawers. There’s nothing better than getting something for free – in this case a bunch of old drawers – and turning them into something useful and pretty, like a set of shelves.

All that’s needed is a little imagination and elbow grease, and there’s no shortage of either over at Crafty Nest. The shelves are secured to the wall, lest you imagine them teetering over and burying you.

DIY Drawer Shelves. Remember this post where I bemoaned the blank wall space in my living room?

DIY Drawer Shelves

Well I do. I posted it in January. In February, I acquired a pallet from my Father in Law for $0.00. Drawers Turned Cubby - House of Hawthornes. I don’t normally spend too much time on the Pottery Barn site.

Drawers Turned Cubby - House of Hawthornes

Like their decorating style, just don’t like their prices. And when you can make most of the stuff yourself or find similar things at garage sales and flea markets, it just doesn’t fit into my frugal little mind to spend a lot on a home decor item. But my niece had seen an Optician Sign on the Pottery Barn site that she thought was cool and on the way to checking out that, I ran across this Cubby Organizer. I fell in love with it and thought it would be perfect for my office.

Via Pottery Barn Then I saw the $129.00 price tag. Salvaged drawers = modular bookcase. I picked up these drawers on Freecycle.

Salvaged drawers = modular bookcase

They were salvaged from the kitchen of a 1940s house that was demolished. My original plan was to put the drawers on wheels and use them as under-bed storage. Turns out, no two drawers are the same height, which would look janky. So I tried stacking them vertically instead (anchoring them to the wall, of course). You could also hang these drawers as individual shadowboxes. How to make a modular bookcase out of salvaged drawers Supplies primer2 coordinating paint colorsdecorative or wrapping paper.

Old Dresser Drawer to Raised Storage Box (Super Easy DIY!) Flower romance. Ok, as you may have seen I've been trying to make it a little easier to read on here and thus all the changes back and forth with the background etc.

Flower romance

I'm having some problems at the moment and that's why we're white right now. Hopefully I'll get it figured out eventually :) Now to the romance part. The little black.... towel hanger. We have a tiny little "galley style" bathroom with an almost non-existent square footage.

The little black.... towel hanger

As you enter there's a little path for you to make it to the toilet at the far end of the space. This scenic route will take you past a door to the bathroom closet on your immediate right, then the ravishing view of the sink on your left hand side and afford you the breathtaking panorama of the bathtub/shower combo on your right. To make going to the bathroom even more interesting you have the luxury of peering over the edge of the bathtub while seated on the facilities. Ok, all this to prove that the space is small :)You can see some pics at the end of my previous post.There's two towel bars in there - one for me and one for the house band (kids aren't quite old enough to need one of their own yet). I see stars. Where I come from, this beautiful little country in the north of Europe called Sweden, we have this tradition to hang paper star lanterns in our windows for Christmas.

I'm no expert on the history of that tradition but my guess it's to symbolize the star of Bethlehem. Make a Beaded Chandelier. Welcome to Dollar Store Crafts - the internet's original site for all Dollar Store Crafts!
