10 cheap items from the dollar store that got an amazing makeover

We all want to live in a beautiful home, but stylish home decor is often sold for prices that can really break the bank. However, you can make your own expensive-looking decor by spending nothing more than a few dollars and some time!
It's understandable if you're feeling a bit skeptical, but trust me, you need to get ready to make a trip to the dollar store. You'll be running out the door once you see the ideas in this article.
1. Wire storage bin
Before it received an awesome makeover, this storage bin was a simple white kitchen rack. Sadie Seasongoods transformed it into a farmhouse-chic storage solution with a fantastic reclaimed wood back, and you can learn how she did it here.
2. Rustic frame lantern
This adorable little lantern would make a great centerpiece or gift. Believe it or not, it's made of nothing but four dollar store photo frames glued together. You can find out more about the process here.
3. Laundry basket organizer
Grab that laundry basket the next time you visit the dollar store. Even those of us who are dedicated to decluttering have items that need a home when they're not in use. This laundry basket organizer DIY takes smart storage up a notch because it hangs, freeing up precious floor space. Get the full tutorial here.
4. Bamboo candle holders
These bamboo candle holders have such a fun, tiki-inspired feel! They were made by the blogger at Concord Cottage using dollar store vases and inexpensive bamboo fencing.
5. Stone coasters
These trendy coasters were made by hot gluing dollar store rocks to a piece of felt, but you could trade out the rocks for gemstones if you want a different look. You could also use this technique to make a larger item like a table runner or a hot pad. Find the tutorial here.
6. Beachy candle holders
These gorgeous rope-wrapped candle holders are perfect for summer. You should be able to find some shells at the dollar store, but the project would be even more special if you used some of the shells you collected on your last beach vacation.
7. Mirrored centerpiece
A great centerpiece can make or break the look of a room, and this one is awesome. The centerpiece below is filled with rocks and succulents from the dollar store, but you could easily switch out the contents to fit with the season. You can find the tutorial here.
8. Tray wall art
This project proves that a can of a spray paint and a few stickers can almost work miracles. The silver trays in the first photo look absolutely nothing like the trays in the second one. You can find step-by-step instructions on Our Cozy Cottage.
9. Jewelry storage tower
Can you believe that this stunning jewelry tower was made from a set of thrift store dishes and an old candlestick? You should be able to find similar items at your local dollar store, and once you've found some dishes you love, you can follow this tutorial.
10. Industrial farmhouse plastic storage drawers
Don't you just love the industrial farmhouse look of these storage drawers? This project definitely requires a bit of time and lots of attention to detail, but the final results are more than worth it. You can find the full tutorial here.
