As we strive to cut down on our environmental impact, turning consignment pieces into reclaimed, repurposed, recycled or refinished pieces is a growing trend! Here are a few great ideas for repurposing your favorite consignment find.
1. Add a bright colored fabric to a traditional chair.
2. Turn a China cabinet into a sturdy book storage for your living room or library.
3. Whoever said that night tables had to match? Find two different night tables you love and paint them the same color.
4. Repurpose silver-plated sugar and cream containers to hold your makeup brushes.
5. Make a chalkboard from an old window!
6. Cover a dresser or buffet with a slab of granite or marble for a new kitchen island.
7. Recycling, reclaiming and repurposing are an eco-friendly way to show off your personal style. It’s all about finding the beauty in a piece that may take a few moments for the shock value to wear off!
Minor fixes like replacing the knobs or hinges are easy and sometimes all it takes is a quick coat of paint to reveal a diamond in the rough!
