Do you have an old spice rack hanging around that you never use? Why not use it to display your nail polishes? It will add a vintage style aesthetic to your bathroom while recycling something you otherwise would have thrown out. Give the rack a new coat of paint to freshen it up and make it match the current colour theme of your bathroom.

Another item that you can recycle in your house is that extra shoe organiser you might have hanging around. You can use it instead to display lipsticks and makeup brushes or even loose ends you might have in your bathroom.
