All Things Can Become New Again

I have talked about this before, but just can’t get enough.  Old things becoming new again.  I love this idea.  I especially love repurposing items when the new purpose is something completely different than its previous use.  This has actually become pretty popular lately, so there is a lot of inspiration out there.  I thought I would compile some of my favorite repurpose finds.  I might even have to start a new project soon!

 

 

 

 

These ideas are all great.  The first picture is water skis made into a chair.  I have also seen old surf boards used as shelves.  The second is a shopping cart made into a chair.  These would be totally cute on a deck or around a camp fire.  The next photo is a library card catalog with added legs used as a coffee table.  Then there is the side board dresser turned into a bathroom sink vanity.  I love this idea.  More storage and totally unique.  The last is a side table made from suitcases.  Great because storage is built right in!

Try thinking of new uses for old objects.  Not only will your home be more unique and express your personality and taste, but it is greener for our world to recycle old items.  Its a win win!

    These are great ideas! I share the same appreciation for repurposing! I find that creativity from repurposing makes for much better design than the big box chain styles especially. Thank you for including a link to my blog 🙂
