1.) Because a guest bedroom lacked significantly in the closet storage department, the homeowner thought the only solution was to dispose of extra bedding. To set her straight, I made storage drawers from inexpensive mdf wood from the Home Depot (you can also buy pre-made drawers at Home Depot, Lowes or stores like Ikea and Target). For a little extra assistance I added casters to the bottom of the drawers so she can easily access them without a problem.
2.) When I pulled a beautiful quilt out of one of the trash bags headed for fabric heaven, the homeowner admitted she had mistakenly tossed it in the haste of her day. Still, she had no idea what to do with it (afraid her animals would destroy it, she'd kept it stored in a plastic bag for years). To create an interesting headboard and focal point, I took a curtain rod I found in her garage and hung it just above her bed, draping the quilt over it.
So, the lesson here..before you TOSS, let friends toss out a few design ideas first..you might be surprised what they come up with and how fabulous your old items look using new tricks and tips!
