Updated: Jul 20, 2020
Are you looking for a fun project that will add some pizzazz to your home – that doesn’t require a degree in carpentry? Before you leave your old furniture on the curb with a sign that says, “free to good owner,” here are 7 creative ideas that will revitalize that furniture and leave anyone feeling handy.
Enhance any backyard space by painting an old bedroom side table with a fun color, pull out the drawer, and use it as a planter. A really great way to start a raised bed vegetable garden too.
No built-in island? Transform an old dresser by adding a custom counter top. The drawers will come in handy also.
We all need more storage. Take off one of the side rails of that old crib and add a piece of glass or butcher block on top to make a cool bookcase or craft table.
Reuse those old doors by creating a custom headboard for a guest bedroom. Paint white or multi-colors for a country chic look.
Remove the backing from an old dresser, add a sink, and you have a cool vanity for your bathroom.
Bed-spring Bottle Holders
No wine rack? No problem. Remove old mattress bed-springs, attach to a wood panel, and store your wine bottles with this cool rack.
Every pampered pet needs a bed. A drawer from an old dresser makes a cool pet bed. Attach some short furniture legs and add a cushion for indoor or outdoor use.
If you have some time on your hands and old furniture to get rid of, maybe you can re-purpose them and spruce up your décor at the same time with these fun ideas.
