A few months ago, I bought a shabby little wall cupboard at one of my favorite thrift stores. It was cheaply made and horribly painted, but I liked it and it only cost three dollars.
I don’t remember what I intended to do with it at the time. Truth be told, I’ve twice tossed it back to the donate pile and subsequently retrieved it.
Today I finally put it to use. Behold the latest unconventional organizer in our home – a shabby chic screwdriver storage cabinet:
An empty almond body butter container is home to all of the miscellaneous screws we have accumulated in twelve plus years of home ownership.
I drilled a bunch of holes in the top to hold the screwdrivers. The wood sort of splintered and the paint chipped as I went along, but who cares? It’s ugly under there, but it’s tool storage, right?
The little drawers hold cup hooks, larger bolts and the wee little screwdrivers we use to replace the teeny batteries in our son’s interactive musical story books.
I know it’s ridiculous to love a storage cabinet, especially one that’s so darned ugly…
but I LOVE my storage cabinet! Don’t you?!
Happy Friday! 🙂
