    Old lamps you find at Second Hand stores can be easily spray painted and made to look new

  4. 4
    Older kitchen cabinet boxes for upper cabinets can be made into individual toy or storage boxes by laying them flat and securing the back side
    Take an interesting handle and it can become a treasure box for a child's room. Or cover with a vinyl or fabric along with foam or insulation core. Attach small legs that are available in any craft or building supply store and you have a foot rest with storage.
