Metal medical cabinets used for bathroom storage have been in vogue for awhile. But how many vintage gurney tables have you seen used as when visiting friends? These are made by repurposing old medical equipment and they work as part of the larger industrial furniture trend. This salvage style as a hall console has a sculptural feel with its large wheels and glass top that exposes the frame. [top] A set of architectural drawings on the wall are a nice play on the table’s lines.
This gurney has straight industrial charm. Its original top is covered with burlap and the lower fixed tray holds collectibles. Repurposing a medical gurney into a hallway table is a totally out there idea, but think of all the fun we would miss if no one was willing to step outside the box?
For other unique repurposing, don’t miss Steel Buoy Work Table and the Whimsical Bicycle Vanity bath.
