At Thrifty Treasures, Sara has an idea for using extra spindles. If you’ve been saving spindles from old furniture, or have access to them from architectural salvage, this is a rescue that will interest you.
For this project, Sara sandwiches a spindle between a sturdy base and a decorative top. This forms a sturdy stand, which Sara paints. Next, she attaches small metal buckets to the spindle, using metallic one-hole straps from the hardware store. She’s made a variety of these stands with buckets hanging from them, in different colors. Sara suggests using them for things like an indoor herb garden, flowers, succulents, organizing q-tips, makeup brushes, crayons, or office supplies.
