It’s a New Year and a new Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge! We took a few months off for the holidays, but we are back to show you more upcycled thrift ideas! This time I have joined forces with even more bloggers to show you tons of thrifty upcycle ideas! And my contribution is a thrifty craft paint storage.
- Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.

Thrifty Craft Paint Storage
If you’re a craftaholic, you know one of the hardest things to organize is acrylic paint. I had my paint bottles stuffed into two plastic shoe bins. And while the shoes bins worked at keeping the paint together, it was difficult to see all the colors. Not to mention, it was impossible to keep similar paint colors together as the bottles always moved around the box – definitely not efficient storage.
So when I came across this $1.99 ‘what-ya-ma-call-it’ unit at SAVERS with divided cubbies, I knew it was the perfect craft paint storage unit.
Really, there was nothing wrong with the unit ‘as-is’, so I didn’t have to do anything to it. But since I’m a crafter and can’t leave well enough alone, I decided to spray Rust-Oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze over the piece.
And this is the result – L.O.V.E it! I can finally see all my paint colors and it’s so much easier to grab the colors I need. It’s currently sitting on my craft table, but I may add hooks to hang on the wall.
What would you have used this unit for?
And now for more thrifty goodness!
