“As the executive director of a small charity (with extremely limited staffing) but with a huge global mission, it was critical that we find a partner that was able to provide us with latchkey services that would just work and would provide the critical additional ad income for our global mission of keeping good stuff out of landfills via online and globally local gifting. Publift has delivered in spades on all counts. We highly recommend them.”

Whether you’ve recently inherited an old curio cabinet or have owned one for a while, you might notice that they’re not the most modern or stylish piece of décor. Before you consider getting rid of it, think of all the ways you could liven up the piece with a DIY refresh. With just some sandpaper and some chalk paint, you can create a lovely vintage look for a beautiful shabby chic upgrade to your bathroom storage options, according to a simple TikTok how-to.

If you don’t have a curio but would like to try the DIY upgrade anyway, the TikTok video recommends searching Facebook Marketplace, where they’re often listed for sale. Other options are apps like NextDoor and OfferUp, which allow people to sell personal items in their local area. For older Internet users, Craigslist and Freecycle still exist, but always be wary about posting personal information, meeting people at their homes, or allowing people to come to yours. And don’t underestimate the thrill of finding an unexpected gem in a thrift store like the Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, or small organization shops in your town.
