Repurposed Items To Transform Your Home

Here are six items that you probably have around the house but can’t find a practical use for. Well now is the time to transform them and create something totally new and innovative. With just a little elbow grease and some time you can have one-of-a-kind pieces that the neighbors will surely envy.

Ladder Turned Bookshelf: Flip a simple ladder horizontally, stick it in a corner, hang it, and voila. Instant eclectic bookshelf.

Teacup Pendant Lights: Tired of staring at your old, unused china? Upcycle those saucers and tea cups to make dainty pendant lights. Since I am not an electrician, I’ve found a tutorial that spells out each step.

Suitcase Night Stand: Now this project is as easy as can be. Just stack a couple of suitcases on top of each other and add a tray, mirror, or tabletop surface to finish it off if you so desire.

Drawers to Bookcase: If you have an old dresser that isn’t being used, this transformation is for you. Take the drawers out of the old dresser and saw them in half parallel to the front of the drawer. If you want a deeper space to store your goodies in, don’t saw as much of the drawer off.

Shutter Organizer: Take a shutter and hang it on a wall in your office or entryway to create a wall organizer. Add key hooks to the bottom of the shutter for even more functionality.

Suitcase Shelves: Just because I’m slightly obsessed with vintage suitcases, I thought I would give you one more clever craft to incorporate them. Here is another simple tutorial to help you along the way.

Your tired old pieces are just waiting to be transformed. So change them. Ready, set, go.
