Repurposed Furniture Ideas & Inspiration

Repurposed Furniture Ideas & InspirationVintage furniture that’s dated, beyond repair, and discarded may be repurposed and recreated into one-of-a-kind accents that pop with character and live on with charm.

With paint, glaze and distressing, old headboards, often not tall enough for newer beds, may be repurposed in coat or towel racks, chalk boards, and even photo displays.

Broken old chairs may also take on a new life as coat racks. The same may be said with small cabinet doors and drawer fronts from dressers discarded by the roadside.

Even the sides and legs of coffee tables as well as the sides and ends of cribs may repurposed! You can find examples of all of these in our Repurposed Wall Pieces collection.
