Other Repurposed Furniture & Décor Resources

I subscribe to several magazines including Ready Made and Better Homes and Garden’s DIY magazine and there is rarely an issue without a repurposing feature in it.

Getting inspiration from reading books, magazines, blogs, and other online material has allowed me to think and re-think before I throw something away.  Often if a friend is throwing an old piece of furniture away, like this old table, I’ll take it and find a way to update it or turn it into something else.

Martha, Martha, Martha!  If you couldn’t tell already, I heart Martha Stewart! She is the Goddess of all things domestic, so of course she has some awesome repurposing DIY projects like:

  • Basket turned Table
  • Garden Shed Crate turned Cabinets
  • Broken Table turned Table Console
  • Benches turned Stacked Shelf
  • Stepladder turned Night Stand

Check out these fabulous, yet simple repurposing ideas from Martha.  They are easy eco-friendly solutions for unwanted or broken furniture.

Budget Saving Tip:

An alternative to the garden shed crates turned cabinets, is to use wooden wine crates.  Most spirit and liquor specialty stores will give them away for free if you just ask!  They will be broken down and thrown away later anyway!
