And it rolls!

Most times palettes are reused but sometimes they are discarded and ultimately meant to be disposable. With a new set of wheels, and perhaps a quick sanding, you’ve got yourself a reclaimed, unique table ready for your books, flowers and coffee cups.

  • Under Bed Shoe Storage

    For those who don’t know, space bag organizers store clothing and linens in a smaller space than usual. The items are stored in the bags, and vacuum cleaner attachments are used to suck the air out of them and create a tiny, compact storage space. This is great for under the bed, behind the door, and in the back of the closet.
