Décor Items You Didn’t Know Could Be Repurposed

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

There are all sorts of furniture and décor items that can be repurposed around your home, it just takes a little imagination. These unexpected items might have never crossed your mind as things to creatively reuse, but designers made them work, and so can you!

Console tables

Console tables can be used in other areas of your home than just living rooms and entryways. Any console with cabinet or shelf storage would make for a great bathroom vanity; just be sure the material is suited to withstand a humid environment and the occasional splash of water.


Don’t let the worn finish of an outdated bookshelf fool you. With a little TLC, you can turn an old bookcase into a sleek and sophisticated sideboard-inspired storage shelf. A fresh coat of paint will work wonders!

Pendant lights

Don’t throw out a good-looking pendant light, even if it doesn't work. Instead, transform it into a one-of-a-kind lamp shade instead. Use your imagination!


For a cool coffee table setup with ample storage opportunities, look no further than an old trunk. Oftentimes the quality of older items is better than new. Take an old solidly-built storage trunk and simply refinish it to give it an updated look.
