What’s not to love about a good old fashion microwave stand? My goodness do they come in handy or what and the best part is you can often find them at garage sales for only $5.00! They are just so versatile. They provide both open and closed storage and I think it’s so wonderfully convenient to have storage on wheels. If necessary you can also easily paint them out to match any decor too.
With some help of some friends, here are some ways we’ve put our own microwave stands to use.
As it was intended:
As a recycle station in the garage:
As a TV stand with DVD’s securely locked away from curious little hands.
As bathroom storage:
They’d also be great in closets to store clothes, toys or books. So many people under utilize their closet space. A microwave stand could totally help you maximize the space you have. This is very similar to the old TV stand I use in my closet for my laundry basket. Almost everything can be re-purposed in some way or another.
I just thought of something else, wouldn’t a microwave stand make for a great mobile Polly Pocket house. Bits and pieces stay up off the floor and your daughter could move it around to play with wherever she is. You could even take the back panel off in order for her to be able to access it from both sides.
How about beside your desk for your printer, scanner or fax machine?
Gosh the list could go on and on. Please feel free to add your own ideas in the comments because you’ll seriously be feeding my addiction. Inexpensive storage just gets my endorphins racing. Talk about a high!
I’m already itching for garage sale season to start up again. Guess what’s going to be first on my list?
