I’m a huge fan of thrift stores and repurposing my finds. You can score some awesome things without spending a ton of money and it can be a really fun “sport”. One item you always see lots of are these storage “trees” intended for storing coffee mugs. Here are two other ways to utilize them in your home.
They are great for organizing bracelets and necklaces. Above is a general example of the before and after effect of taking a dark wood color mug tree and spraying it white (and yes, the before mug tree is not identical to the after mug tree as I forgot to grab my camera and get the before shots – woops!). So for just a few dollars (the cost of the used mug tree and paint), I have a fun way to organize jewelry!
Here is the one in my craft area that holds some ribbon, twine, and tape.
Do you like to repurpose thrift store items too? What would you organize with a mug tree?
