I’ve been a thrift shopper ever since I was a little kid, that’s why working with Goodwill all these years has been a blessing for me. I love sharing ideas on how items you can find at our stores, or elsewhere, can help develop and transform your personal style. For example, I have an enormous and unconventional bedroom without a traditional closet space, so I had to come up with a way to create an area where all my clothes and accessories can be stored.
On top of my dresser, which I purchased at a thrift store and made over with the help of wall paper inserts on the drawers, I had a jewelry box that was filled with my collection of watches, bracelets and rings that I wear frequently. It was a mess! On a recent trip to Goodwill, I found a Threshold brand home decor antler NWT (new with tags) for just $6.99, and I knew it would be a great way to display my accessories!
You’ll also notice the round, sisal braided rug—I also purchased it Goodwill for $29.99 (and it too was NWT). It helps define my dressing area and works well with the old wood floors in my room, which once was an attic.
Another thing to note in my photos below is the use of a heavy-duty rolling rack that I purchased at Goodwill for $39.99. It was still in the box when I bought it! This is a great way to SEE what you have to wear, as well as keep it organized.
In addition, I keep my sunglasses in a vintage camera case, and I use vintage candy tin to store other items. The leather suitcases are perfect for out of season linens and clothing.
Remember, when you’re excited to get ready for the day, it’ll go much better when you know where all your stuff is and, well, that’s priceless!
