Thrifted Master Bathroom Storage

I've been working on organizing the master bathroom.  I'm tossing dated products and trying to bring everything we need into one central location, so we don't have to run back downstairs when we need apple cidar vinegar, for example.  Whenever I take on a new project around the house, my 2 questions are: 

  • How can I solve my problem without spending any money.  
  • What do I have around the house some where, which would make a suitable container.

How about my china hutch full of thrift store pillage and sweet vintage scores. 

It turned out lovely.  Better than I had planned.  I found candles, sugar bowls for baking soda, an orphaned gravy boat for epsom salts, an old jar with a lid for my coconut oil and an oil decanter for my olive & castor oil mix I use on my face every night.  

Which brings to mind another thought......

Use your stuff!! 

Don't keep your pretty things locked in a cabinet to be used once a year (or never).  Pretty things are meant to be used.  We can't take them with us.  Make your life and your world beautiful TODAY.  Don't wait for Christmas or a birthday to decorate.  PS: If you're not going to use it, or don't like it, get rid of it.  

All of this was thrifted.  I think I might paint this table though.  I'm not sure if it's going to stay here or not, but it works for now.  :)  

I've had an atomic tiered serving piece in the cabinet just taking up space and being useless.  I decided it would hold some make up.  I like lip sticks more than eye shadows.  Can you tell?  I don't own too much makeup these days so it's working just fine for the time being.  I also broke out my grandmother's piece of Fenton to hold some brushes and liners.  

What pretty things do you have around the house which you could use as a container?  Share with me.  :) Tell me what you think in the comments below. 

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you're inspired.  Don't be a stranger.

Tongue Out Tuesday

This photo was taken with my Nikon D5100 camera, if you're curious. (an affiliate link)
Tongue Out Tuesday.  Charlie, the rescued Springer, says hello.
My boy Charlie, our English Springer Spaniel.  He's so pretty.  He was rescued off the streets of the Alabama Gulf Coast.  He's so happy here.  He has such a good life.  He had a terrible life before and bonded with my husband hard and fast. We didn't have the heart to separate them.  He was our first foster and our first foster fail.  :)  He is one of the best things to ever happen to us.   If you would like to follow ESRA on Facebook, you'll hear all kinds of good news stories about rescued Springers.  All Dog lovers are invited.
