PJ 264 – upcycled organizing and storage

Salvaged Junk Organizing and Storage - a cool free way to store junk inside other junk! on FunkyJunkInteriors.net

Welcome to Party Junk 264 – upcycled organizing and storage

Every Friday, 7 PM through Sunday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings and a happy weekend to you!

If you’ve been tuning into Funky Junk the last few weeks, we’ve been hosting a Heap of Change challenge, where purging and organizing has been the name of the game. That led me to this weekend’s theme of upcycled organizing and storage.

We only have so much room in our homes. And it’s my theory that if we store our junk inside the very things we love to look at, you get decorating and productivity in one fell swoop! So here are a few projects that do it for me…

This right here is every junker’s dream storage. Storing junk inside junk… total style and function all in one. In 4 layers even! Don’t you adore the patina?

Put up your hand if hunting for thread drives you crazy… me too. That’s why this idea is genius!

A chunk of pallet is perfect for this coat rack. Don’t you love a build that’s kinda already built for you?

I have no idea what this red contraption really is, but it reminds me of the game Mouse Trap. 🙂 And is perfect for storing tape and twine.

Why yes, I do store craft paint upside down in a toolbox. Right side up in some cases too! Makes for super easy transporting around the house, and easy to see your colours.

Mason jars inside drawers make paintbrush sorting a breeze! Click the link for more upcycled ideas in my own paint studio.

Teamed up with storage cabinet cubbies and mason jars, this lowly pallet became a pretty decadent tool shelf for my workshop! Awesome project for the non builder types especially.

  1. Last weekend, I visited some of the projects linked up and was inspired to makeover my bench that had been in the shed for way too long. Thanks for hosting an inspirational party!

  2. I’m stunned and speechless at such talent!!! you guys are amazing! keep it coming! all I need to do is find a good junk store or a good dumpster and learn to use some TOOLS!
    thanks for all the sharing!!! 😉

  3. Hi Donna,
    My absolute favorite junk storage idea has to be yours. . .using an old wooden toolbox to store acrylic paints. I have one of those spinner racks for my acrylics but it takes up too much space and doesn’t really go with my craft room “décor”, which is somewhat junky. I have a couple of toolboxes – I’m a sucker for them, too – and can’t wait to load one up with paints! Right now it’s time for a glass of wine and an hour of visiting as many other bloggers on your Party as I can…love all of the ideas. Thanks for hosting the party and for sharing your very creative, very junky, ideas! Cheryl @ 22 Applegate Lane

  4. Pallet tool storage is a fantastic idea. My husband will love it. I am going to show him your article! Thank you for sharing such an useful information! He will use it in the garage. Greets!
