Meet Holly, from McCall Manor, who asks a question many of us are probably familiar with: "You know all of those times when you scour the internet looking for a piece of furniture that has the EXACT dimensions that you need for a space and when you can’t find it online you look in your garage and realize that a piece you had been using to hold dirty garden shoes is actually perfect?"
This rescue is going to grab the attention of any parents of lego lovin' kids (like mine!) out there. "Recently, I emptied a square yellow container of corn starch," says Susan at Organized 31. That was when she realized how similar it was in size, shape, and color to the Lego head storage bins that she'd seen at the Lego store. Hey!
"Once upon a time, this was a beautiful bench," says Tara at Suburble. "I was pretty thrilled to have found it in a sale at a local decor store. I packed it up, brought it home...and let Mother Nature wreak havoc on it for years." She was almost ready to put this baby in the scrap bin, but an opportunity to test some new paint changed her mind.
When Katie of Creatively Living moved into a new home, her mother in law gifted her with several older dressers. One day, Katie realized that one of those dressers would fit perfectly in her entryway, providing a good storage spot for gloves, hats, etc. It just needed some sprucing up to be worthy of being the first thing people saw when they opened the door.
