Repurposed shelving finds alternative ways to create displays and personalize our homes.
Repurposing means taking an object and using it in a different way than originally intended. We all know it’s the “green” thing to do but many of us don’t do it to save trees. It’s done to express creativity, to be unique and avoid mass market items. One of the cutest repurposing ideas I’ve seen was repurposed shelving based on a gently loved dollhouse. The dollhouse cubbies were used for storage in this laundry room [top]. A miniature armoire hangs nearby, used as a key box.
About the time our youngest moved into her new home, I ran across this clever idea. Vintage wooden crates are simply stacked, creating display space. Lacking a local source for multiple crates, I file this idea away for future reference.
A vintage wooden ladder has visual appeal as a bookshelf. It’s the perfect touch above an artist’s workbench.
