If there's one thing that's better than scoring extra storage, it's creating said storage out of unused items you have lying about the house! And lucky for us, there are plenty of great tutorials online for repurposing old items and turning them into something that's not only functional, but also looks a million dollars.

With an old weather beaten drawer front I found in a field and some spindles off of a broken crib I tried my hand at making a coat rack. I cut the spindles to make the pegs for the hats to hang on, made pilot holes into the bottoms of all of them, and screwed them into the drawer front. Sanded everything
Then, with some paint and racing stripes, a hat rack for all of the middle child's hats :)
I had been wondering what to do with my LAST child's broken down crib. So, I took it apart, stared at everything, and decided I could use the spring part to hang my heels on. I've leaned it on the wall of my closet and it works great
It would probably look cute spray painted, but I kinda like the color the metal is already.
What do broken doorknobs, salvaged pavement chunks, and pieces of unused sewer pipe all have in common? Some serious - and surprising - DIY decor potential!
