Use Old Things That You Love, A Very Frugal Idea
This dollhouse turned shelf has all of the elements of the frugal household but done with style! You get to re-purpose an item that may be sitting around and enjoy it each day as you use it in a new way.
Imagine - an antique dollhouse used as a laundry storage area! If you notice there is also an old jewelry cabinet used to store thread, buttons, little laundry helper items and keys. What a great place to collect coins found in pockets, and other small treasures.
This display would also be very effective in a mudroom or large pantry area. Think about creating something unique like this in your home. You will be amazed at the attention and rave reviews it will get from friends and family alike!
And then instead of getting rid of a childhood toy, you can have it live a useful life for years to come.
