Trash to Treasure: Cute Little Storage Bins

What is it about finding someone else’s junk and making it better? I get a bit of a high from it.

I found these storage bins at my local thrift store, and even though they were in sad shape, I love the idea of having storage for a lot of little things. Just think of the possibilities! It would be great in your craft room or for jewelry. Your kids would love to use it to store teeny tiny toys.

I took each drawer out and spray painted the frame’s exterior with a blue color. Once it was dry, I replaced each drawer and scraped off all the stickers.

I felt like it was still in bad shape, so I covered the little boxes up with laminated paper numbers. You really could do so many different things here. Doesn’t it look better?!

Have you been thrifting lately? Isn’t it fun?!
