Many times when we walk through the doors of Harbor Freight we are on a mission. Typically to locate the one tool we need for the project at hand for the least expensive price. But this time we went to Harbor Freight not looking for tools, but for home decor items. Click through the jump to see our finds!

These metal cleats are intended for use with your boat. You would normally use them to tie your boat to the dock. We think they would make great curtain tie backs in the right space. Harbor Freight has them priced just over $2 each.

This is the shinier version of the cleat above. It's a few inches longer and a little bit higher in price at just over $24. Outside of curtain tie backs they are skinny enough to make fantastic drawer/door pulls.

At Harbor Freight there is an entire wall devoted to the wonderful world of casters. From black to blue there are even these yellow ones too! We think they would be a great way to infuse a bright pop of color in a small way. They hold 154lbs and come in at $7 each.

This spinner is normally used for small nuts and bolts in your garage. We think it would make a great spice rack or even a fun jewelry rack. If you have the space it could also be used in your home office for small things like paper clips, white out and brads.

We still love the idea of industrial carts utilized in your spaces. They would be right at home in your laundry room to hold your washing supplies, in your children's room to hold books or stuffed animals or even in your bathroom to hold towels (assuming the space permits such a crazy thought!).
