Dollar Store Storage Makeover

30 Minutes

I hate spending a lot of money on decor and storage items. I frequently shop Goodwill, thrift stores and the Dollar Store for items that can be updated. With a little creativity and effort it's easy to turn something inexpensive into something unique on a limited budget.
I recently picked up four storage containers from the dollar store that I transformed with a little spray paint and metal pulls. You would never know that these little containers were from the dollar store after I was done with them.
After a few coats of spray paint and the addition of metal pulls these containers were completely transformed.

    You got my attention with a picture cutting the top off a laundry basket. It's not on your slide show, That's rude.

      Complain to home talk. They are the ones that out up the teasers especially if it's a group of ideas. I see the correct picture for this project though.
