Photo by Monica BuckReal Simple recently showcased how to turn everyday household items into nice decorating pieces.
Take, for instance, a glass vase (like the one in the photo to the left). Sure, you can display a backyard bouquet or anniversary roses in it, or you can use it every single day in your bathroom to store extra toilet paper rolls.
I'm always at a loss what to do with extra toilet rolls. As of now, we keep them in the cabinet behind the toilet but then guests have to root around to replace a roll. It'd be much nicer to have extra rolls visible.
Not having to buy that particular item to display them in? Priceless.
What everyday item have you found an unconventional use for?
