I hate to admit that sometimes I hoard things other people would throw away without a second thought. For whatever reason, my mind always manages to think of some way to use something that would otherwise be in the trash.
Take this plain old watch box and a single copper spray painted drawer pull.
I couldn’t help but see this watch box as a cute little storage box to sit on my nail head trim table.
I glued the copper drawer pull on and called it done. I’m so in love with the copper and this shade of blue. #perfectmatch
It’s a simple thing to do — transform something that was headed towards the trash can into something useful. It may not be a huge box but it can hold q-tips, cotton balls, matches or even jewelry.
So tell me, am I the only one who looks at trash and sees what it could be?
And as always —
