One of my very favorite activities is going to the dollar store and thinking of things to make from the products there. It forces me to be thrifty, and to think outside of the box. Does this always yield a stunning outcome? Nope. But the times that I do love what I end up with make the failures absolutely worth it. Not only that, but when it turns out the idea looked better in my head than in reality, I only spent a few bucks. No biggie.
The projects I found for this compilation are pretty impressive. Great decor doesn’t have to break the bank. Neither do great accessories. Keep an open mind on your next visit to your local dollar store! Before the full round-up, I just have to talk about a few of my favorites…
Salvage Dior took a black rubber door mat from the dollar store and made this faux vintage iron wall piece. I am an outside of the box thinker, but I don’t know that I would have thought to paint rubber for faux iron. I mean, come on. Gotta love spray paint, right?
Need some organizing inspiration? Jen at The Social Home gave her pantry a makeover with dollar store supplies. Does your pantry look like this? If so, did you get it there for $48? I know.
Remember when I made marker storage from a garage sale frame and some dollar store buckets?
When I first saw this, I thought it was beautiful. When I saw that it was made from dollar store dishes, it became genius. Who else but Beckie of Infarrantly Creative makes gorgeous garden art from some plates and paint?
