Recycling old items is a real art form and it enables you to personalize your home and give it a unique style. If you like shopping at antique stores and flea markets, use your creativity to recycle old objects into fun and innovative pieces of furniture. Here are some pictures to inspire you.
A repurposed sewing machine
Sometimes it takes only one or two items to give a room a unique touch. In this example, an old sewing machine was transformed into a desk. The result: a distinct piece of furniture that – coupled with the wood flooring – gives the room a vintage feel.
A suitcase that never leaves home
Here’s a suitcase that has finished travelling! Comfy cushions and sturdy feet were added to this old suitcase to create a unique and stylish chair. The finished product can be paired with a small table to create a nice spot to relax or read.
A bike to hold a potted plant
Bikes can be an elegant and original decorative item when hanging on a living room wall. This particular bike really stands out against the brick wall and adds to the room’s industrial feel. Used to hold a potted plant, it’s a definite conversation starter and a fun idea for impressing visitors to your home.
A suitcase that’s transformed into a table
Why not recycle your old suitcase and turn it into a side table? This stylish piece has been repainted in black and placed on metallic feet that are also black. The look has been completed with a mirror and a decorative tray.
A cabinet recycled as a wine cellar
Not sure what to do with that old cabinet you have? No problem, simply recycle it as a wine rack and tasting area! This particular one also serves as a storage space for wine glasses, bottles and other accessories. It’s a creative way to breathe new life into an old piece of furniture.
A new function for an old window
Here, a window has been repurposed as a coffee table. Freshly painted in white, it has been transformed into a practical and chic piece of furniture that will add style to any room in your house. A little plus is the fact that the window’s sash was left visible, giving it a unique, rustic look.
A new idea for a fireplace
If you have a fireplace mantle collecting dust in the garage, why not clean it up and create a smart new headboard for your bedroom? Be creative in transforming it into an original piece in a style that you like. In this version, several pillows in a variety of sizes and colours have been added to provide a feeling of comfort and warmth.
