Vintage Living – Amazing Repurposed Storage Ideas

“In my humble opinion, two things a home can always use more of is, extra storage & vintage charm. Being a lover of all things old & worn and a mom of 2 busy boys, I am always looking for clever ways to add storage that will keep me on budget and add warmth to my space at the same time. Repurposing vintage & salvaged items into storage can add style & character, create conversation and bring function to your space without breaking the bank. The best places to look for these items are flea markets, estate & tag sales, thrift stores, local antique shops and yard sales.”
