DIY Hidden Storage: Canned Food Storage Cabinet

It’s totally tiny but does a fine job suiting our needs…mostly… One problem I’ve run into with a small space is storage space. I’ve had to get a little creative and maximize the empty space hiding in the room since we’re lacking a pantry. However, our kitchen had about a 6” opening between our wall and the refrigerator. I decided I needed to utilize this hidden space and that’s exactly what I did!

Vintage Kids Room

Does anyone know the capitol of Kentucky? Just in case you were wondering…..I have the answer. It’s on this vintage map in the upstairs hang out space….along with antique chairs and few enclopedias.

Stenciled Washer & Dryer

Since I can’t afford a new fancy Washer & Dryer for my Laundry Room, instead I decided to give a little makeover to my old set using a stencil from Royal Design Studio.

I centered the thick plastic stencil on the front of my dryer and stuck it in place with some painter’s tape. I then used a little cabinet and trim roller to apply my paint. Finish it off with a coat of clear polyurethane and the makeover is complete!

Dollar Store Toy Bookends

I made surprisingly realistic faux bronze animal head bookends with dollar store toys and acrylic photo frames. The bookends can also be left unpainted for a more juvenile look.
