Nothing makes my frugal self more happy than to see new life for something I was ready to donate, especially when it comes to organization and storage!
Last year, I was looking at a very old clothing armoire from Ikea and saw an old, tired, dated piece of solid wood furniture. I saw the quality was still there but the style was sorrily lacking.
I took my armoire, painted it, sealed it, and repurposed it for craft room storage! It took me about 6 hours to repaint it because I had to dissassemble pieces. But once it was done, wow was it worth it!
The best thing is it stores 12×12 albums perfectly. Now they’re protected from light, dirt, and dust and stored upright — the preferred method to store them. Best of all — it gives me a place for a TV 🙂
Look at your old furniture — pull out that old TV stand, that old nightstand, that old piece of furniture that’s collecting dust in your garage or attic. With a little TLC and imagination, it can become your favorite new piece of furniture in your craft room!
Have a great weekend & happy crafting!
