My vintage obsessions, decorating experiments, garage sale finds, and thrift store treasures!

Creative vintage upcycling
I find these at thrift stores and garage sales all the time. They are wood pipe stands, originally used to store one's smoking pipes. The ones pictured are actually my grandfathers, so they are extra cool to me! I use them in my craft room to store tools. One has all my jewelry pliers, and the other has miscellaneous tools. I have found that I love having all my supplies out where I can see them. When I store them in boxes or drawers, I use them much less often. So these wooden pipe stands are the perfect piece to organize with. I love using vintage items in a new, creative way... bringing a second life to an item!
