7 Extraordinary Items You Can Find At Goodwill To Repurpose And Make Any Room Light Up

As a college student, finding things for our dorm, apartment, or just a cute makeup brush holder that is adorable but cheap is very difficult. Going to Goodwill is the best solution for this dilemma as young adults. Every time you go to Goodwill, they always have so many different things like side tables, cabinets, cups, lamps, or other miscellaneous things. The next time you want something for your apartment or house, take a trip to Goodwill to see what you can repurpose before spending a fortune.

1. Metal tray to "menu" chalkboard

Now, would you look how easy that would be! Find a cute tray that you like, get some spray paint, and chalkboard paint and that sucker is perfect for the kitchen! By painting it a bright color, you can make your kitchen pop and it could be a great conversation starter.

2. Side table to a brand new looking side table

Look at what some paint can do to a table! All you have to do is, find a table you like, paint it and you can sit back and let the compliments roll in. Repurposing a little side table or cabinet can change the whole atmosphere of the room maybe even the house.

3. Mason jars to utensil holders or make-up brush holders

Aren't these mason jars adorable? Why not get some mason jars from Goodwill and get some cheap paint to change them completely! If you are feeling super artsy, you can even add glitter to them and ribbon or if your not the artsy type you can just add a strip of paint and it will change the look as well! There are so many ways to change the look and purpose of mason jars.

4. Cabinet to a place to hang purses or scarves

Need a new place to hang your purses, scarves or jewelry? Take an old cabinet door, give it a new paint job, add some knobs on it and there you go, a place to hang some things! This would go perfectly in a tight closet to add more space for the bigger things like clothes!

5. Old board games to shelves

Goodwill has a lot of different board games that are either missing pieces or some of the game is ripped. Grabbing an old game can be very helpful in a little kids room for shelving. Most games already come folded in half so all you need to do is add some hooks and you have yourself some pretty cool shelves!

6. Old coffee cups and saucers to bird feeders

Many people like having birds around to watch in their backyard, so why not get an old teacup and saucer to make a bird feeder. All you would need is some super glue, some string to hang it, and some bird seed! What a great way to add some decoration outside!

7. Old Shutters to a place to hang letters and notes

Grabbing an old window shutter or two can really spice up your office or kitchen. Using an old shutter is the perfect way to hang important letters or notes or even your glasses.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
