Thrift Thursday: Easy n’ Cheap Storage with a BOHO Vibe

So, a couple of days ago, I was yammering about spring cleaning……well, I guess I’m on a roll.  I swear that I’m not a nesting pregnant woman!  It is just the typical time of year for me to be seeking some change and some order in my life and home.

I have one of those awesome bathrooms without any medicine cabinets.  I appreciate the clean lines….but, seriously?  I really don’t want to be doing squats and knee bends every time I need some hair product or face cream!  In the past, I have thought up some creative solutions for solving my little problem…..using some silver platters along with a candlestick and some museum wax.


If that inspires you, check out the simple how-to.

This has worked nicely for a while, but now I am totally jonesing for some counter-space!  Fortunately, I had a small crate handy….now for some screws and a drill!
