Craft Storage: Recycle, Re-purpose & Re-use – Garage Sale Finds
Check out three garage sale finds that are ideal for storing crafting supplies!
It’s Amanda here!
I’m back to share with you some great storage ideas for your crafty space!
It’s summer and every weekend you see garage sale signs all over the place.
The saying goes that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.
Well, there are hidden gems that you can frequently find at garage sales and I have three ideas
I’d like to share with you today.
This wooden toolbox is great for keeping brushes, paint and paint misters handy,
right on your work table.
And, if you need the space, it’s easy to move to another location – just grab
the big handle on top.
This would also work great to hold jars of your most frequently used tools like scissors,
pencils, a ruler, glue and more!
Next up is a vintage metal tool box.
This is the kind of toolbox that you would expect to see in a home or a garage.
I just love the vintage look!
This keeps my jewelry-making tools corralled and in a handy spot right next to my beads.
If I want to work somewhere else in the house, it’s easy to close the lid and transport my tools wherever I need to go.
Now, if you’re looking for a great way to display some of your crafty goodness, look no further than a wooden DVD storage cabinet!
This cabinet was originally designed to hang vertically, but I added some little angle brackets from the hardware store, along with some screws and anchors, and I have a shelf that fits perfectly above my book case and allows me to display some of my carefully crafted projects.
You could, of course, use this method to store just about anything on a shelf, all from something you can pick up at a garage sale for a few bucks.
So, when you’re out prowling around garage sales (and flea markets, yard sales and vintage fairs) keep an eye out for things that can be used as crafting supplies, tools and projects storage.
Shiny and new is nice, but when you’re on a budget, it’s nice to find storage solutions with character that work for your space.
I hope I’ve inspired you to think outside the box and re-purpose something that works great for you!
