I hope these projects inspire you to shop inexpensively and add some pizazz with paint and paint products and brighten up your home.
Are you ready to see 5 Upcycling Projects for the Home? Grab a cup of coffee and let’s get started.
My bathroom was in need of storage. There was a spot in the bathroom that was small, and I tried a small dresser and even a shelf. I felt like I wasn’t utilizing the space to it’s fullest advantage. Of course, Pinterest inspired me to use an old ladder for storage. I picked up this old wood ladder years ago. After painting the ladder, adding a few hooks and nailing in some baskets, I had the perfect storage solution for my bathroom.
Wine boxes are great to upcycle. They are made of durable wood, easily paintable and come in a variety of sizes. For this project I was looking to create a Magazine Tray Table to sit next to my sofa. This project was super simple and it is perfect for a variety of spaces in my home.
When I’m not using the Wine Box Turned Magazine Table next to my sofa, it sits by my desk and holds my favorite magazines and books.
Old Drawers with some cute little legs make the perfect Pet Beds. You could also use Wine Boxes, but for the beds below I used drawers. I was struggling with my pups hanging out on the sofa and hoped their new beds would lure them off the couch.
It worked….kinda. For these beds, I personalized them with my pets names; Oreo and Sofy. Are you a pet lover?
Do you like to bring flowers into your home? Have you thought of enhancing an old mirror with a floral transfer. Iron Orchid Designs has a nice selection of decor transfers that will enhance any mirror.
I’m a little obsessed with shutters. I love all that would and there are so many different ways that you can decorate with a shutter.
For this shutter, I decided to create a table. I added a shelf, a couple of table legs and of course some paint. I think it turned out super cute. What do you think?
I hope I’ve inspired you to go and check out your local Thrift or Second Hand Store and find some items to upcycle. Just remember, someones trash is another person’s treasure.
Now go out there and Create Something.
