Storage ideas a la vintage

Greeting on a beautiful Saturday! Browsing among decorating websites got me itching to share some new storage and decorating ideas for all of you in blog land who need ideas, pronto!
Truth be told, by camera was left in my car, and the battery was dead, so I had to troll the web for something to post, and what better than some of these...

First we have a large vintage frame, that has chicken wire strung across it, and hung to camouflage an unattractive window. The owner then tucked in her favorite bits of old photos and paper ephemera.

Love this old drink carrier that now stores some cheerful kitchen dish cloths.

Simple idea, but super cute, this old shutter painted a bright green holds the mail.

A vintage suitcase, has now been retro fitted to hold craft supplies. Love the mini clipboard and the scissor holder.

This is actually an old light fixture that has been re-purposed into a vase for some sassy flowers.

My favorite yet, the birdcage that is now a stationary holder and mailing center.

How about an old heat grate, now used to hold the newspaper?

If you had a really large bathroom, (and some skill with a saw), you can turn architectural details into a massive towel rack for your bathroom.

Finally, cute old bottles and silver pieces from teas sets can be turned into little storage holders for your toiletries.

All these storage ideas and more can be found here.
Have a great rest of the weekend, ya'll. It's actually warmed up here in Colorado to almost 60 degrees!
