Are you one of those people that have a ton of old furniture lying around your house that you just can’t seem to get rid of? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. A lot of people have a hard time parting with their old furniture, even if they don’t really need it anymore. But what do you do when you’ve got too much furniture and not enough space? You repurpose it! Here are some easy ways to repurpose old furniture and give it new life.
Old end tables, dressers, night stands and other furniture can often be repurposed into a cute tufted coffee table. Simply remove the legs from your old furniture and attach four new ones in their place with wood screws or nails.
Then, simply cover the tabletop in a sheet of plywood cut to fit well enough so that it doesn’t move around once you secure it onto the frame. It’s a really easy way to get a brand new piece of furniture without spending all of your time or money on getting one!
Also extremely simple – just remove the doors from your cabinets using both a screwdriver and a wrench (if they’re being stubborn). Put some wheels underneath them, add some cushioning with bedding, and turn into a bed for your pet. Just make sure to stay on top of the air pressure in the tires so that they don’t pop!
As a lot of us with pets already know, those things can be really expensive. If you’re sick of buying new pet beds all the time, you can actually take your old one and just cover it with a plush blanket, pillow case or some other piece of fabric that looks nice. You’ll never have to buy another bed again as long as you keep this trick up your sleeve!
If you’ve got an old headboard lying around and no bed frame to use it with – don’t fret! There are lots of ways to repurpose them and turn them into the sofa for the backyard. You can even use them for your kid’s play house, or maybe even the kennel if you have a pet. The possibilities are endless with these things!
Have an ugly buffet table that you’re tired of looking at? Why not turn it into a mini bar for your kitchen or sunroom? You can make it look really classy by adding some wine storage underneath, along with small glass drawers for liquor bottles and other stuff. It’ll look great in no time flat!
One of the ways that people are repurposing old dressers is by turning them into plant holders. You can actually install shelving inside of them if you want, or simply use the tabletop to display your crafting projects or artwork.
Some people have turned their tables upside down so that they have a surface to work on while they’re painting the walls or doing some other type of home improvement project. This may not be for everyone, but it’s still pretty cool!
Repurpose old chairs by using them as side tables in corners throughout your house. Some are even adding wheels to them and using them for rolling around when cleaning up their garage instead of buying one of those fancy ladders with wheels on it!
Take the old ladder out of the garage, clean it, paint it, dry it in the sun, and ta-da the DIY bag hanger is ready to go into your room. If you add some shelves, then you can use it to grow herbs in your garden or just use it in the living area to display some plants.
Creative ways to repurpose old furniture can make your home look new again on a budget. With just a little bit of imagination and some DIY skills, you can turn that outdated piece of furniture into something stylish and functional in your home. Moreover, it is budget and environment friendly!
